Call for Panels and Colloquia

Save favourite 10 Sep September 2019

In NEEDS 2020 we welcome ideas for panels and colloquia.

Panels are regular sessions with short presentations. Panel organizers are invited to send an abstract describing their panel. After the panel abstract has been accepted, the call for papers will open and researchers will be free to submit paper abstracts to the accepted panels. The panel organizers are responsible for reviewing the abstracts submitted to their panel.

Colloquia are fora for research-oriented initiatives that do not fit the traditional presentation format. Colloquia may be open or closed sessions such as (and not limited to) round tables, debates, demos, and formal meetings. Colloquium organizers are also invited to send an abstract describing the topic as well as the format in which it will be conducted.  

More than one proposal may be submitted by the same person.

Submit your suggestions here by 15 September 2019 (extended deadline!). For more information please contact the NEEDS 2020 team at
