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:
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.
