Submissions should include the title of the panel; the names and affiliations of the organizer(s), confirmed invited participants, and participants who have been invited but not confirmed. Although they can be invited only at the time of the submission, we encourage organizers to get confirmation from as many participants as possible prior to submission. All panelists must be listed as Authors in the proposal. You must include the session format: how you will run it, the invited participants’ role, your role, the audience role, and any special logistical needs (e.g., special seating or A/V, audience size limitations, expectations about attendee background or interests, etc.).

 

WORKSHOP (500 words):

Workshops are a gathering place for attendees with shared interests to meet in the context of focused and interactive discussions, hands-on activities  or design- oriented activities. They are an opportunity to move a field forward and build community. If you are working in an emerging area in, please consider organizing a workshop.
