Specific information about different submission categories


The lecture notes for long tutorials are essentially invited papers. The assumption is here that the lecture notes have not been published, as is, and must be “obviously” suited for the research community of GTTSE and for publication in LNCS. In case of doubt, the authors should seek discussion with the editors. The main purpose of reviewing is hence to provide useful feedback to the authors of the lecture notes so that they can improve the quality and clarity of the potentially long texts. Page limit: 56 pages. (Exceptions should be discussed with the editors.)


The tutorial speakers are strongly encouraged to turn their tutorial into lecture notes that constitute a useful addition to their body of published work. In most cases, early discussions between speakers and editors had confirmed the "obvious" potential for such a useful addition. To simplify the process of reviewing the lecture notes for short tutorials, the authors are asked to add a short paragraph to the paper's introduction that clarifies the contribution of the tutorial in relation to other published work by the author. (For instance, it could be that the lecture notes provide an original survey-like exposition; they could also discuss some techniques, methods, or results in greater, more tutorial-oriented style than previously.) The review process will not be selective. The goal is to publish most if not all submitted lecture notes. Page limit: 24 pages. (Exceptions should be discussed with the editors.)


Please note that all GTTSE participants may submit, not just the students who presented at the GTTSE/SLE Students' Workshop. Of course, submissions from the speakers at the workshop are particularly welcome. Participants may have co-authors who did not participate. Submissions in this category will be reviewed in a manner that is similar to technical papers at major conferences in the field, e.g., GPCE, MODELS, POPL, SLE. That is, each paper will be judged on the grounds of its technical merits, relevance for GTTSE, originality, and clarity. Compared to other conferences, GTTSE's review model offers the advantage of two rounds and substantial time for revision. This means that papers can be improved substantially to better meet the expectations of the reviewers. Further, the scientific committee is prepared to dedicate extra effort to submissions by junior researchers. Submissions must make a significant contribution. Short papers are not solicited. Firm page limit: 16 pages. (Slightly shorter papers are welcome.)
