The workshop will include a paper session for each task, a poster/demo session, and various other discussions. Anyone may present a poster (1 meter square) without notification. As for demos, table space and power will be available. Internet hookups will be very limited in number (5) - please email firstname.lastname@example.org before 31.Oct if you need Internet access for your demo.
Since speaker time is limited, we'll ask anyone who wishes to be considered for a paper presentation to submit a speaker proposal by the deadline given in the Guideline milestones. (Given that the summarization work will have it's own workshop at ACM MM, we will not be accepting speaker proposals for that task.) The coordinators and I will use these in making up the final workshop schedule.
A speaker proposal should consist of a short (under 500 words) abstract about your experiments in a given task. The abstracts should emphasize what experiments you did and why they are interesting or unusual rather than provide a general description of your system.
The proposals must be in simple ASCII text and you should email the proposals (one per task) from your group as the body of one email to: over AT nist.gov. Please separate and clearly mark them by TASK and GROUP.
