Onward!

Co-chair: Elisa L. A. Baniassad, Chinese University of Hong Kong
Co-chair: James Noble, Victoria University of Wellington

The Onward! track provides a forum for visions of the future of our field. Onward! is the place to reveal the revolutionary, air the provocative, and expose the subversive. The Onward! track is composed of three sub-tracks: papers, presentations, and films.

Onward! papers are included in the technical proceedings, and are part of the main research program. Of the 27 papers submitted to Onward!, two were selected for inclusion in the papers track.

Onward! presentation can describe: new paradigms or metaphors in computing, new thinking about objects, new framings of computational problems or systems, intriguing technologies, emerging methodologies, and late-breaking research. Onward! presentations are provocative, inspiring, interesting, amusing, irritating, and in some cases subversive. Presentations are submitted as 10-page research papers, and appear in the conference companion. Presentations provide a venue for those exciting and groundbreaking ideas that are not yet ready for inclusion in a regular technical track.

Onward! films investigate ideas, concepts, insights, or almost anything related to programming. They can take almost any form: documentary on learning a new language; interviews with practitioners; animation/depiction of your new technique; diary of a frustrated grad student.
