Conference Format

Papers for these conferences must be submitted two months prior to the event, to allow participants and the audience time to read them in advance. Each presenter will have 30 minutes which will allow for a brief 10-minute presentation of their paper followed by a 20-minute constructive dialogue with the other participants. There will also be time for audience members from the general public to ask questions. The conferences will be for five hours a day for three days, and a fourth day consisting of a two-hour session for just the participants to have additional conversations. It is our hope that participants would seek to have their papers published in either technical journals or outlets for the general public and we will be selecting some of the participants to contribute to an edited volume on VAI.
