2021 Submission

The GTM2021 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). Panel sessions will be scheduled as livestream video and will include moderated Q&A.
  2. Oral Presentation. Oral presentations (15 minutes + questions) addressing well-advanced research. Oral presentations will be scheduled as livestream video and will include moderated Q&A.
  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 Talks will be scheduled as pre-recorded video with Q&A board. Power Talk presenters are invited to post a Poster as well.
  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.
