Submissions require one document, as outlined below:
More details regarding the new ACM workflow for publications can be found here: https://www.acm.org/publications/taps/word-template-workflow
The Extended Abstract should explicitly communicate:
Also, please consider the following policies and guidelines:
Please submit your work using the Precision Submission System and prepare it according to the requirements stated above.
The submissions will be selected using a double-blind review process. Neither the reviewers will know the names of the authors, nor will the authors know the names of the reviewers. After the initial reviewers make their recommendation, the final decision will be made by the Work in Progress Chairs. Accepted submissions will be made available in the AutoUI Adjunct Proceedings, distributed by the conference (e.g., through USB sticks and on the conference website) and will appear in the ACM Digital Library. All submissions are considered confidential during the review process.
Each submission will be reviewed on the following criteria, acknowledging the early-stage nature of the work:
During the WIP review, the first and the last criteria listed here ('significance' and ‘engender discussion') will be considered to be twice as important as the other criteria, and therefore will be weighted accordingly.
The extended abstract shall not contain sensitive, confidential, or proprietary information that cannot be disclosed at publication time. Confidentiality of submissions will be maintained during the review process. All rejected submissions will be kept confidential in perpetuity. All submitted materials for accepted submissions will be kept confidential until the start of the conference, with the exception of title and author information which will be published on the website prior to the conference. Summaries of completed work or reduced versions of main track AutoUI submissions are inappropriate as a Work-in-Progress submission and will be rejected.
WiP submission authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection by July 8, 2020. Authors of accepted submissions will receive instructions on how to prepare and submit the final formatted version and details on the virtual poster, online poster presentation, and scheduling at the conference.
A member of the program committee and the publication chairs will check that your final output meets the requirements for publication and, if so, will finalize the acceptance. Authors are encouraged to submit their final revision earlier than the deadline, in case it is judged that the paper does not meet the committee requirements. If authors are unable to meet these requirements by the deadline, the program chairs will be notified and may be required to remove the paper from the program.
Upon acceptance, at least one author must register for the conference by the early registration deadline in order for the work in progress abstracts to be published.
Authors are required to prepare a poster and present this poster in an online forum where audience members can virtually interact with presenters and ask questions. Full details and guidelines will be provided following the submission decisions. Organizers will attempt to accommodate authors in time slots that are most ideal given their time zone or the time zone of their intended audience. However, given the global diversity of attendees, poster sessions for Work in Progress may be scheduled for a time that is not ideal for a presenter. We hope that presenters will take this in stride and make all attempts to participate despite time differences.
Authors who do not participate in the live session may have their submission removed from the proceedings and the digital library.
