We invite submissions of extended abstracts/short papers describing recent work, thoughts, or best practices on one or more of the topics of interest (up to 4 pages). All submissions will be reviewed using a simple blind process by at least three programm committee members and will be assessed based on their relevance, potential to create constructive discussion, and clarity of writing. The submissions must be formatted in compliance with the style sheet that will be adopted for the LREC Proceedings (to be announced later on the Conference web site).

Accepted papers will be presented at the workshop in the form of a 5 minute lightning talk and included in the workshop proceedings. If there is an unexpectedly high number of submissions, we may consider accepting some as posters.

Authors Kit

The camera-ready version must follow the guidelines provided in the Author’s Kit and it should be in pdf unprotected format.

How to submit

Please submit the camera-ready version through the START conference tool.

Workshop format

The workshop is planned as an open-space event in which the workshop participants host and participate in discussions related to the topics of interest.

At least one author of each paper is expected to register for the workshop. During the workshop, the author is expected to host or co-host a discussion group. We plan to align the topics of the discussion groups with the topics of the authors submissions. The hosts will take minutes which are to be aggregated into a report after the workshop. We wish to encourage authors to offer their help in the report writing process to the organizing committee.
