Summary proposals only, please! Please submit only a summary proposal, up to one page (400 words) for selection, together with an optional PDF document for additional information. Your proposal must be submitted via the EasyChair website:

The main deadline for proposals is Monday 13th January 2020.
The deadline for research workshop proposals is Friday 13th March 2020. 

Submission guidelines
All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:

Papers will be presented in 20-minute slots (either in plenary sessions or in parallel) and be associated with a publication of a “long” paper of 4-8 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 “short” paper of 2-4 pages describing the demo or deliver it in association with a formal presentation (see below). 

A popular option is a combined paper and demonstration. These can be in two 20-minute sessions on request in the submission, especially if the demo requires significant set-up time, but a combined 30-minute presentation and demo is the default format and encouraged if the demo does not need any complicated set-up. A single “long” paper of 4-8 pages may be produced for the proceedings.

Proposals for panel sessions are welcome. A panel session would consist of two or more panel members who each make brief presentations or statements, followed by a 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. Note that all panel participants must register for at least the day of the panel. An associated “long” or “short” paper of 2-8 pages may be submitted.

Proposals for longer workshops are welcome. A workshop should be a practical tutorial and would normally in one or sometimes two 90-minute sessions. Note that all workshop presenters must register for at least the day of the workshop. An associated “long” or “short” paper of 2-8 pages may be submitted.
