All working group reports will be submitted after the conference is over and submitted for peer review. As before, those reports accepted for publication as a result of the peer review will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
Working groups are formed by participants with a common interest in a topic related to the subject matter of the conference. The groups of five to ten participants, including up to three leaders, work together electronically before the start of the conference. Working groups convene on Friday evening before the conference to meet each other. The groups start face-to-face work in their sessions on Saturday. Group members are expected to work together on Saturday and Sunday, and continue their work throughout the conference, which runs from Monday to Wednesday. However, members are able to attend some conference sessions and the Tuesday afternoon excursion if they wish.
All working group leaders must register before the early registration deadline. Every working group member must register for and be present at the conference in order to be considered a contributor to the final report.
Participants present their preliminary results to conference attendees at a special working group presentation session, and submit a final report after the conference concludes. Final reports are refereed and, if accepted, are published in the ACM Digital Library.
Applications to join the working groups will close at a suitable point after they are announced. Applications should be emailed to the nominated leaders of the working group in question, and should include the following information:
We’ll add more about the accepted working groups when they have been decided.
