The following email was sent on the 1st April 2019 to those who expressed interest in the Halfway to the Furture symposium.
The Halfway to the Future committee have been working hard on the organisation of the symposium over the last couple of months and we now have a few updates to share with you.
We are delighted to confirm that all accepted papers will be published as part the ACM International Conference Proceedings and will be included in the ACM Digital Library! As part of this, all submitted papers will be peer reviewed through a double-blind process. This means we are now able to distribute the templates you should use to draft your papers.
All accepted authors who are not invited to present their work within one of the symposium panels will be invited to produce a poster to be displayed during the symposium as well as being included in the ACM conference proceedings. Selected authors from accepted submissions will offered the opportunity to take part in one of our six symposium panels (this process will be juried to curate provocative and engaging debate). We have clarified this information on our submission guidance webpage.
Submissions are due on the 21st June!
If you have any questions regarding your submission or the review process, please do not hesitate to contact Joel and Jocelyn, our Programme Chairs, using the email address email@example.com.
Finally, just a quick note to say we are currently working on finalising the details of conference registration and will be making these details public in the coming weeks.
