Submission of Summaries

Tcl/Tk 2005 will be held in Portland, Oregon USA from October 24 - October 28. The program committee asks all people using and developing with Tcl/Tk and extensions to submit papers and proposals for presentations at this conference. Past conferences have seen submissions covering a wide variety of topics including and not limited to:

  • Scientific and engineering applications
  • Industrial controls
  • Distributed applications and Network Managment
  • Object oriented extensions to Tcl/Tk
  • New widgets for Tk
  • Simulation and application steering with Tcl/Tk
  • Tcl/Tk-Centric operating environments
  • Tcl/Tk on small and embedded devices
  • Medical applications and visualization
  • Use of different programming paradigms in Tcl/Tk and proposals for new directions.
  • New areas of exploration for the Tcl/Tk language

The submissions should consist of an abstract of about 100 words and a summary of maximum two pages. Omit extraneous or redundant information. Length is not a direct factor in judging the quality of the submission.

Send submissions as plain text to <tcl2005 AT> no later than July 1, 2005. Authors of accepted abstracts will have until September 15, 2005 to submit their final paper for the inclusion in the conference proceedings. The proceedings will be made available on CD-ROM, so extra materials like code samples are welcome.

The authors will have 20-25 minutes to present the paper at the conference.

The program committee will review and evaluate papers according to the following criteria:

  • Quantity and quality of novel content
  • Relevance and interest to the Tcl/Tk community
  • Suitability of content for presentation at the conference

Proposals may report on commercial or non-commercial systems, but those with only blatant marketing content will not be accepted.

Application and experience papers need to strike a balance between background on the application domain and the relevance of Tcl/Tk to the application. Application and experience papers should clearly explain how the application or experience illustrates a novel use of Tcl/Tk, and what lessons the Tcl/Tk community can derive from the application or experience to apply to their own development efforts.

Papers accompanied by non-disclosure agreement forms will be returned to the author(s) unread. All submissions are held in the highest confidentiality prior to publication in the Proceedings, both as a matter of policy and in accord with the U. S. Copyright Act of 1976.

The primary author for each accepted paper will receive registration to the Technical Sessions portion of the conference at a reduced rate.

Other Forms of Participation

The program committee also welcomes proposals for panel discussions of up to 90 minutes. Proposals should include a list of confirmed panelists, a title and format, and a panel description with position statements from each panelist. Panels should have no more than four speakers, including the panel moderator, and should allow time for substantial interaction with attendees. Panels are not presentations of related research papers.

Slots for Works-in-Progress (WIP) presentations and Birds-of-a-Feather sessions (BOFs) are available on a first-come, first-served basis starting in August, 2005. Specific instructions for reserving WIP and BOF time slots will be provided in the registration information available in June 2005. Some WIP and BOF time slots will be held open for on-site reservation, so we encourage all attendees with interesting work in progress to consider presenting that work at the conference.

Registration Information

More information on the conference will be available in April 2005 at the conference Web site and published on various Tcl/Tk-related information channels.
