The Call for Proposals for 2016 has now closed. We thank everyone who submitted a proposal. We will be notifying decisions by the end of February 2016.
Proposals may be for a paper, a paper with demo, a demonstration, a workshop, an exhibition, or a panel discussion.
Your proposal should come under one of the conference themes.
Summary proposals only, please! Please submit only a summary proposal, up to one page (400 words) for selection. Your proposal must be submitted via the EasyChair website:
The deadline for all proposals is Monday 16th January 2016.
Papers will be presented in 20-minute slots (either in plenary sessions or in parallel) and be associated with a publication of up to 8 pages in the proceedings.
Demonstrations will be formally timetabled normally in parallel with other sessions, in 20-minute slots. Proposals are invited and should be submitted in outline as for papers, above. However, we will not expect detailed demo requirements until nearer the conference, to allow time for development. For publication you will be able to offer either a 2-page summary describing the demo or a demo in association with a formal 8-page paper and presentation.
Proposals for panel sessionsare welcome. A panel session would consist of two or more panel members who each make brief presentations or statements, followed by discussion with the audience. We will look for panel sessions to be of wide interest and to stimulate and engage the audience, since most delegates are interested and often expert in using and exploring technologies. The exact length is flexible by could typically be 40 minutes.
Proposals for workshops are also welcome. A workshop should be a practical tutorial or a more free-format discussion group and would normally last one or perhaps two 90-minute sessions.
Please see Key Dates section for information on all deadlines.
Please see Contacts if you have any questions.
