KEY FACTS:

• Submission deadline: 20/3/2020
• Decision Notification: 10/4/2020
• Camera Ready Version: 17/4/2020
• Online submission: PCS submission system 
• Selection: Juried

We encourage researchers, students and practitioners to submit Work-in-Progress (WiP) papers based on their recent viewpoints, new discoveries, and early-stage design and development in disciplines that are in line with the areas of interest of TVX / IMX. The WiP track is intended for thought-provoking and out of the box ideas, possibly with early proofs of concept or prototypes, as well as position papers. The WiP session is geared towards early career researchers, but also caters to seasoned scholars for the presentation of unfinished projects. The WiP track thus provides a unique opportunity for exchanging brave new ideas, for receiving feedback on projects currently in progress and for fostering collaborations. We thus encourage submissions that are not merely a report of work done but an input for discussing with fellow researchers at the conference.

Accepted submissions will be presented as a short pitch presentation and a physical poster at the conference. Authors of accepted WiP papers are also invited to bring a demo. The WiP posters will be presented as part of the conference. The accepted WiP papers will be included in conference proceedings (indexed in the ACM Digital Library).

DEADLINE

REVIEW PROCESS

Your submissions will be reviewed by a panel in a non-blind manner based on originality, creativity, impact, relevance to the topics of TVX / IMX and the quality of presentation. The review process will strive to select papers that present novel ideas and approaches, with the potential to spark discussions and interactions at the conference.

AT THE CONFERENCE

To maximise the visibility of your work, accepted submissions will be presented as 1) a WiP madness speech (1 minute/per person) in the main track of the conference, AND 2) a poster, AND 3) (optionally) a demo next to the poster. At least one author must register to attend the conference to give these presentations.

AFTER THE CONFERENCE

Work in Progress Papers will be published in the main conference proceedings, indexed in the ACM Digital Library.
