ACM/IEEE CS Health of Conferences

Dear SIG and Conference Leaders,

The ACM/IEEE CS Health of Conferences ad hoc committee has completed their charge. With the help of the SIG leadership we have collected the best and most innovative practices from conferences organizers related to how they are dealing with a continually increasing number of submissions. The information collected has been posted here http://wiki.acm.org/healthcc.

As a conference/SIG leader, you are being asked to review the wiki and provide input on your most recent experiences. The value of the information collected will increase as the dialogue continues. Thank you for the data you have already provided. We certainly hope you’ll continue the information sharing and use this wiki as a resource in your conference community.

To add comments, simply click on an item in "Let's Talk About Selected Ideas", (e.g., "Talk: Tracking Reviews) and read instructions at the top of the page for appending your views (and optionally name) to the wiki. You do not need a password to edit. We encourage you to distribute the information to your committees and members.

Sincerely,

Mark Hill, Chair

Joe Marks, ACM representative

Mary Hall, ACM representative

Jean-Luc Gaudiot, IEEE CS representative
