Dear GTTSE 2009 participant,
We encourage all participants to submit an extended abstract as a kind of presentation proposal for the participants' workshop. It does not matter whether a participant is a PhD student, a PostDoc, a practitioner, or any other member of the computer science community.
The deadline for submission is 9 June.
All other details follow past the signature.
If you have any question, please don't hesitate to ask.
WHY TO SUBMIT
Each presenter benefits by means of the feedback from the renowned tutorial speakers and other participants. Presentation at the school may also spark off new collaboration. The school, as a whole, also benefits from the workshop because the presentations constitute a blend of the current research interests in the GTTSE community.
All submissions will be distributed in printed form at the school. The abstracts will not be published online. The titles of selected presentations appear online though.
SELECTION PROCESS FOR THE PARTICIPANTS' WORKSHOP
There are always more presentation proposals than there are slots in the participants' workshop. (There are likely to be 10-15 slots for presentations with 10-15mins each.) In an attempt to provide a fair selection criterion, senior tutorialists and members of the scientific committee are asked to rank extended abstracts so that a list of the most compelling presentation topics is identified. This selection process is supposed to be informal and must not be confused with any sort of peer review. In particular, no formal feedback will be returned to the authors of the 2 page abstracts. Authors will be merely notified of the selection's outcome. Authors who are not selected and who still wish to present some of their material may exhibit (and present) a poster.
SUBMISSION PROTOCOL FOR PRE-PROCEEDINGS
An extended abstract must be formatted according to the Springer LNCS guidelines; 2 pages. See the author instructions.
(Please do not use any footers or headers; no page numbers in particular.) The participant is the sole author. If you are reusing material from a previous publication of yours (possibly including co-authors), this should be indicated by means of a footnote.
Deadline for the initial submission (.pdf): 9 June
Deadline for the final submission (.pdf and sources): 12 June
Notification of selection: 18 June
Please use EasyChair for the initial submission.
Please select “Participants' Workshop” as the submission category.
You will receive an extra email for the final submission.
PREVIEW FOR THE POST-PROCEEDINGS
After the school, all participants (i.e., presenters and non-presenters and non-submitters to the workshop) are encouraged to submit a contribution for inclusion into the post-proceedings. These contributions will be properly reviewed and selection for the post-proceedings will be competitive. Successful contributions have to meet high originality and quality standards. Compared to the usual peer-reviewed venue, GTTSE is particularly prepared to provide gentle and detailed feedback to PhD students.
Submissions to the post-proceedings can have up to 15 pages; such submissions must have author teams with a participant as the corresponding author. Submissions to post-proceedings must not be under submission to another conference, journal, or any sort of peer-reviewed venue. SIGSOFT-like rules for plagiarism are assumed. Further details regarding the submission to the post-proceedings will be distributed after the school.
