Call for papers: EVT 2011 Rump Session

| Comments (0) |
For the third year in a row, this year's EVT/WOTE includes a Rump Session. The session, is now scheduled at the later time of 5:30 PM on August 8, which gives you more time to think of your proposal.

This session will no doubt include results more important, and simultaneously more hilarious than any to be presented at the main workshop, which is full of the usual solid (i.e., boring) academic research. However, this can only happen if you (yes, this means you!) submit.

Acceptable topics include:

  • Work in progress
  • Work which you haven't had time to start
  • Work which you will do if you ever get some free time
  • Work which should not be started at all

No topic is too big. No topic is too small. No work is too stupid to be presented at the EVT Rump Session.

Each presenter will have between 4 and 7 minutes, depending on the number of submissions, the program chair's expectation of hilarity, and an as-yet-undetermined and most likely arbitrary evaluation formula.

Submissions should be directed to the Rump Session Chair, Eric Rescorla ( Please provide a talk title, name of the presenter, and an estimate of how much time you would like.
