Panel sessions provide an opportunity for expert panel members to present their views on a specific topic and then to discuss these views among themselves and with the audience. Panel sessions run for 75 minutes. Usually a panel session starts with a brief introduction of the panel topic and the participants, followed by short presentations by the panelists giving their views. The session must allow sufficient opportunity (about 30 minutes) for an interactive question and answer period involving both the panelists and the audience.
A typical panel will consist of four participants, including the moderator. Limiting a panel to 4 participants allows sufficient time for audience questions. Proposals with more than four panelists must convincingly show that all panelists will be able to speak, and the audience able to respond, within the session time.
Panel proposal review is not blind. Criteria used in reviewing the proposals include the likely level of interest of the topic, the presence of panel members with multiple perspectives on the topic, and the likelihood that the panel will leave sufficient time for audience participation.
If the proposal is accepted, all presenters listed in the panel description will be required to register for the conference and to participate in the session.
The proposal is limited to two (2) pages that conform to the SIGCSE 2014 Format Instructions with the following modifications and exceptions:
If accepted, the panel description will be allocated two (2) pages in the conference proceedings and must adhere to the formatting guidelines specified above. To facilitate the transition from proposal to camera-ready copy, it is critical that authors adhere closely to the formatting specifications and page limits.
Note that you will be required to submit your proposal electronically.
Deadline: All electronic submissions must be received by Friday, September 6, 2013 at 23:59 (11:59 p.m.) Hawaii-Aleutian Standard Time (HST).
