Process to-date • Organizers decided on initial topics • Invited PC members, who helped refine topics • Submissions turned in through 58 self-published short position and experience papers • PC members invited to review self-selected papers, average of 3.12 reviews per paper • 54 papers viewed as relevant and making a contribution; these papers are linked from the workshop website • Based on reviews, organizers grouped papers into three areas, and again based on reviews, selected panelists to represent each area • Invited 2 keynote speakers • Wrote up short description of this process, published as arXiv report ( – Documents what we have done – Contains links to each paper, to help get them in the indexing system

  4. 4. What happens next • It’s up to all of us to decide • Because of the NSF connection, some themes will be further discussed in a workshop for SI2 PIs being planned for February • More open follow-up workshops/conference possible – Think about the right venues for a workshop – Is enough here for a full conference? • Each contributor: consider an additional version of your contributions based on learning from discussion? – Self published? Traditionally published? Venue for submission? – Special issue? • All participants: consider if there are specific issues, challenges, or solutions raised in the workshop that you would contribute to further debate through co-authored papers from the workshop, or through blog posts. – Depending on how the panels go, this might be a paper per panel, or it might be that each panel chair identifies key cross-cutting challenges that are shared with the other panels (for instance education and training). – Who is interested? – Venue for submission?
