The GTM2018 program committee is pleased to accept submissions for the following:

  1. Special session. Sessions provide a multi-perspective presentation on an issue facing the field of tech mining. The overall abstract should describe the general session topic and how two (45 minute session), three (60 minute session) or four (90 minute session) presenters will offer coordinated oral presentations.
  2. Oral Presentation. Oral presentations (15 minutes + questions) addressing well-advanced research.
  3. Power Talk. A power talk consists of an abbreviated oral presentation (5 minutes, 4 PowerPoint slides). The objective is to deliver a lively, concise description of your research and its impacts. Power talk presenters are also invited to present a poster at the evening’s Poster Session/Reception if desired.
  4. Posters. This formal graphic presentation format offers an excellent opportunity for gathering detailed feedback on your work-in-progress and reporting on tech mining results. Proposed work should be empirical in nature and reflect work in which an early career researcher has led the research, and/or played a significant role in the research.
