Developer Rooms

New this year, there will be some developer rooms available. Some have internet connectivity and some already contain machines suitable for web browsing and connecting to remote applications. So you may also use the form below to propose small-scale talks, discussions and/or hands-on tutorials/demos/coding that make use of these facilities and which will be scheduled to run alongside the main conference programme.


Abstracts for the main conference or tutorial programme should be accompanied by a short biography, and, ideally, should be about 250-500 words long. Final papers should normally last about 45 minutes, including 10 minutes for questions and answers. If you need more time for your presentation, please tell us when you submit your abstract. Proposals for the use of the developer rooms are of course free of these restrictions.

Abstracts should be submitted to the conference organisers electronically through this form.

We shall acknowledge all submissions.
