The GTM2019 program committee is pleased to accept submissions for the following:

  1. Special session. Sessions provide a multi-perspective presentation on an issue facing the field of tech mining. Presenters will offer coordinated oral presentations (10 – 15 minutes, depending on number of authors, + time for questions).
  2. Oral Presentation. Oral presentations (15 minutes + questions) addressing well-advanced research.
  3. Power Talk. A power talk consists of an abbreviated oral presentation (5 minutes, 4 PowerPoint slides). The objective is to deliver a lively, concise description of your research and its impacts. Power talk presenters are also invited to present a poster at the evening’s Poster Session/Reception if desired.
  4. Poster. This formal graphic presentation format offers an excellent opportunity for gathering detailed feedback on your work-in-progress and reporting on tech mining results. Proposed work should be empirical in nature and reflect work in which an early career researcher has led the research, and/or played a significant role in the research.
