While submitting your paper abstract is voluntary, this is an important opportunity to get feedback about your proposal prior to submitting your paper and we hope to hear from many of you about your ideas.

Long and Short Papers
*Long and short papers are due for peer review by April 15*
Authors may choose to use the ACM sigconf template for submitting papers. See template with instructions for Word and LaTeX http://www.acm.org/publications/article-templates/proceedings-template.html.
The ACM template is not required: Authors may choose to submit a document that contains the sections identified in the ACM template.
Proposals for thematic panels to be held during the main conference program. Panel proposals will be judged on the merits of the proposal and relevance for the expected audience. Proposals must detail the subject and desired outcomes for the panel discussion as well as the proposed panelists.
Posters are ideal for reporting on emerging issues and on works in progress. Demonstrations provide an opportunity to highlight and share innovative solutions. Both require an extended abstract of up to 2 pages that clearly describes the topic to be presented and states its unique contribution to the field. Posters and demonstrations should aim to improve knowledge, show new technical capabilities, or share solutions and experience in the field.
The poster session will include a “minute madness” session, where presenters will have exactly 60 seconds to entice people to stop by during the poster exhibition session.
This year we are inviting digital-only poster submissions. Specific instructions on preparing posters will be provided by the Program Committee to accepted posters.
There will be an award for best poster that will be presented on Wednesday of the conference.
For Demonstrations only
Workshops are intended to be hands-on and interactive, and proposers are free to decide how to structure and design them. Workshops usually involve the development of a skill, related to the topic covered in the workshop. While workshops involve more hands-on learning, they should also allow for discussion, interaction and debate on the topic of the class.
Tutorials should focus on a single topic and designate whether it aims at an introductory level or an expert level. Tutorials allow time for group discussion of content and debate on the themes and concepts covered in the class. Tutorials need not be hands-on. Proposers are free to decide how to structure them.
Please prepare a proposal (to submit as a PDF in EasyChair) with the following fields of information completed. Peer reviewers will only have this information to determine acceptance of your proposal, so please be clear and thorough for each bullet point below:
