Contributing › Work in progress (TeC)

Call for participation

Work in Progress (WIP) is intended to present recent results that could benefit from discussion with the community at the HMI conference. Unlike scientific paper submissions, TeCs present work that is not yet mature enough for full submission, but which could benefit from being shared with the community at this stage. 

Instructions to authors

Authors should submit an anonymous 4-6 page paper in Extended Abstract format (references are not included in this count). Papers should contain a description of future work envisaged to bring the work to maturity and/or open questions that could benefit from discussion at the conference. Accepted papers will be published in the appendices of the proceedings, published on the ACM Digital Library. The presentation of accepted papers will be in the form of a poster and a lightning presentation at the conference. In addition, the possibility is offered to accompany the paper with a demo presented during the demo session (to be indicated at the time of submission). Authors retain the copyright of their work and may therefore reuse it as is or in part in other publications. In particular, authors will be able to submit an improved version of their work in another publication under the guarantee that the new version respects the plagiarism rules of the publisher of this new publication.

Selection process

TeCs are subject to a lighter evaluation process than scientific papers. Nevertheless, the process will be double-blind and each submitted paper will be reviewed by one or two external reviewers, as well as by the TeC managers.

Submission process

TeC submissions are made on the PCS system.


Submissions should follow the anonymous Extended Abstracts Format:


  • Deadline for submission of papers: Friday 14 January 2022 (23:59 AOE)
  • Sending of reviews to authors: Friday 25 February 2022
  • Deadline for submission of final versions: Monday 14 March 2022



The HMI 2022 conference will take place in Namur, unless the health situation deteriorates.
