13. Reintroduction of Notes

  • Offered by other conferences
    • CHI, CSCW, UIST,
  • Last offered at UbiComp in 2003
  • Changes:
    • 4 pages vs. 10 pages (Full Papers) vs. 10 / 16 pp (LNCS)
    • Full Papers & Notes reviewed by same committee
    • No Full Papers conditionally accepted as Notes
  • Challenges:
    • Differentiating Full Papers from Notes in CfP
    • Relatively low acceptance rate this year

14. Digital vs. Printed Proceedings

  • Printed proceedings
