The Learning at Scale 2015 conference is now accepting "Works in Progress" papers.
A Work-in-Progress is a concise report of recent findings or other types of innovative or thought-provoking work that has not yet reached a level of completion that would warrant submission of a full paper. Topics are the same as those listed for full papers.
Works-in-Progress will be published in the ACM Digital Library, but in a separate part of the conference proceedings from the full papers. The status will be akin to what CHI describes as "semiarchival", meaning the results reported in the WIP must be original, but copyright is retained by the authors and the material can be used as the basis for future publications in ACM venues as long as there are "significant" revisions from the original.
Note: "Works in Progress" should NOT be anonymized. Please leave your names and affiliations in the body of the paper.
Work-in-Progress submissions will be 2 - 4 pages in length in the Extended Abstracts Format and submitted as a PDF file. (See: http://chi2015.acm.org/authors/format/#extendedformat ) Due to the very rapid selection process we cannot offer any extensions to the deadline. Work-in-Progress submissions are not anonymous and should therefore include all author names, affiliations and contact information. If accepted, you should expect to prepare a poster to present at the conference venue. Please note that the physical posters presented at the conference may not be larger than A0 size.
The WIP submissions are due before 11:59PM EST, January 8, 2015. Submissions must be camera-ready, with author names visible. Incorrectly formatted papers may be rejected upon submission because there is little turn-around time between submission and publication for this category of submissions.
