Call for Proposal

We are pleased to announce the call for paper proposals for the pre-conference workshops and the main conference (as part of the 19th STC India Annual Conference) to be held in Bengaluru on the 7th, 8th, and 9th of December 2017.

The theme for the conference is Less BS, More Empathy!

In the spirit of the theme, we request all of you to put yourselves into the selection committee’s shoes. What is the barest minimum that a selection committee would need to judge a proposal based on merits? The answer to that question is what your proposal should contain.

We made a video to explain what the words in this year’s theme mean: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XozQQOSUS5U
