Please submit full papers in an anonymized version (for double blind review) before Feb 1st 2013 via the review system at

Research-In-Progress Papers

To stimulate discussion around new topics we encourage researchers to submit research in progress in the form of research-in-progress papers. Research-in-progress papers are the same as full papers but typically represent work that is incomplete, yet promising.

Please submit research-in-progress papers in an anonymized version (for double blind review) before Mar 15th 2013 via the review system at


Posters graphically illustrate original systems, experiences, or applications, and will be shown for the duration of the main conference. Poster submissions should include an extended abstract of no longer than two pages. The extended abstract should state the contribution and originality of the work clearly and explicitly, including just enough background to make clear how the work differs from significant prior research.

Please submit poster proposals before May 1st 2013 via the review system at


Proposals of workshop organisers should be no longer than four pages and should include: the title of the workshop, the list of organisers and their backgrounds, and an abstract of no more than 150 words; as well as the workshop’s theme, goals and activities; maximum number of participants, means of soliciting participation, and means of selecting participants.

Please email your proposal as PDF attachment to:

Doctoral Consortium

Research students wishing to attend the consortium should submit up to four pages addressing the following: Introduction setting up your research area and specific research question(s)/goals(s) (including key related work); Overall research approach, methodology, and expected contributions; Work in progress (including findings to date and next steps); Questions and issues for discussion, and what you hope to gain from attending the DC; short bio.

Please send applications by 1. May 2013 to Geraldine Fitzpatrick, Doctoral Consortium Chair: geraldine.fitzpatrick AT

Student Volunteers

C&T actively encourages students to volunteer at the conference. Being a student volunteer is a great way to support the research community, meet other students in the field, and attend an international ACM conference. You will help the conference organisers with the running of the conference and support the setting-up of presentations and workshops. You will see the latest in C&T research and development, and have fun while learning about running the conference. In return, you will get free registration. To apply, email us your contact details (email, phone, university), an abstract of your research project, a CV, and the reasons why you would like to be a student volunteer.

Please send applications by email to the Student Volunteer Co-Chairs until 1. May 2013: Alexander Richter (alexander.richter AT and Wolfgang Woerndl (woerndl AT
