You are invited and indeed encouraged to submit proposals for
presentations and tutorials. The conference schedule will consist of two
days of tutorials (Monday - Tuesday) and 3 days for the main
conference (Wednesday - Friday).
The conference provides you an opportunity to report on original
research and applications of Tcl/Tk and related technology. The
audience will consist of practitioners and researchers who are
intermediate or experienced users of Tcl/Tk. For this reason, reports
on experiences and applications should draw out lessons for other
Topics will include, but are not limited to:
* Application of Tcl/Tk in industries as diverse as engineering,
industrial controls, broadcasting, financial services,
medical and electronic design
* Networking with Tcl/Tk, including distributed applications and network
* New widgets and techniques for GUI design with Tk
* Simulation and application steering with Tcl/Tk
* Tcl/Tk on handheld and embedded devices
* New Tcl extensions and add-ons, including Tcllib and Tklib
* Tcl/Tk centric operating environments
If you are interested in submitting a paper you should send an
abstract of about 100 words and a summary of maximum two pages. Omit
extraneous or redundant information. Length is not a direct factor in
judging the quality of the submission.
If submitting a tutorial proposal you should send an outline of the
tutorial and a brief biography, and clearly indicate whether the
tutorial is of half-day or full-day duration.
Send submissions as plain text to <tcl2006@...> no later than May
The primary author for each accepted paper will receive registration
to the Technical Sessions portion of the conference at a reduced rate.
The program committee will review and evaluate papers according to
the following criteria:
* Quantity and quality of novel content
* Relevance and interest to the Tcl/Tk community
* Suitability of content for presentation at the conference
Proposals may report on commercial or non-commercial systems, but
those with only blatant marketing content will not be accepted.
Application and experience papers need to strike a balance between
background on the application domain and the relevance of Tcl/Tk to
the application. Application and experience papers should clearly
explain how the application or experience illustrates a novel use of
Tcl/Tk, and what lessons the Tcl/Tk community can derive from the
application or experience to apply to their own development efforts.
Papers accompanied by non-disclosure agreement forms will be returned
to the author(s) unread. All submissions are held in the highest
confidentiality prior to publication in the Proceedings, both as a
matter of policy and in accord with the U. S. Copyright Act of 1976.
More information on the conference will be available in Spring 2006 at
the conference web site (http://www.tcl.tk/community/tcl2006/) and
published on various Tcl/Tk related information channels.
