Interact 2011

Special Interest Group Discussions (SIGs)

Chairs: Gerrit van der Veer, Teresa Romão

Submission deadline extended: 4 May 2011

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) allow conference attendees who share similar interests to meet for 90 minutes of facilitated interactive discussion. INTERACT 2011 provides meeting space and advertises SIG meetings to the rest of the conference in the Conference Programme and on the Conference Website.

Submissions for SIG discussions are NOT anonymous, but will be peer-reviewed, and acceptance will be based on the relevance of the topic to the INTERACT 2011 programme, its relevance and importance for the INTERACT community as well as the plan for stimulating attendee interest and participation. Proposals must be authored by a minimum of two individuals representing at least two different organizations.

A submission for a SIG discussion consists of an extended abstract of maximum two pages PLUS a one page description with the following information:

  • Interest and relevance of the SIG to INTERACT 2011;
  • Assumed attendee background;
  • Format of discussion including an informal list of topics and time allocated to each topic (roughly);
  • Name of primary contact person.

Upload submissions in .PDF format by May 4, 2011, using the conference submission system at Abstracts should be formatted according to the conference paper format. The description of accepted SIG discussions will be published in the conference adjunct proceedings.
