Guidelines For Panel Proposal Submission

Panels entail presentation of prepared papers (distributed in advance to a discussant) on a specific topic or theme, followed by structured discussion of those papers at CCS 2018.
Panels should be comprised by no more than three-four paper presentations, and at least one, but no more than two, Discussants and each paper should have a full abstract and author information.
Panels are guaranteed a 60-80 minute slot (individual paper presentations are expected to run 12-15 minutes).
Each panel requires a chair, which can be self-nominated (during the submission process). They need to prepare a 400-word rationale for the panel proposal and a 75-word panel description for the conference program.
Full Panel Proposal (in word or PDF format) should contain the following:

  • Panel Title
  • Panel Abstract (200 words)
  • Chair
