*Call for Late-Breaking Papers*

For the first time in FG, we are introducing Late-Breaking Papers 
category this year. The goal of the LBP venue is to provide a way for 
researchers to share new and preliminary results at the conference and 
to get constructive feedback from the community, as well as initiate new 
collaborations. Accepted submissions will be presented in a poster 
session at the conference, but the submissions will not be published in 
the FG Proceedings.

*Online Submission*

For online paper submissions, please use the FG Submission site, and 
select the Late-Breaking Papers track: 



    Submission deadline:*9 March 2020*


    Acceptance notification: 6 April 2020


    Submission format: Anonymized, four pages not including references,
    in the 2020 FG submission format described here:


    Selection process: Peer-Reviewed


    Presentation format: Participation in the conference poster session


    Publication: Not published

*What are Late-Breaking Papers?*

Late-Breaking Papers (LBP) submissions represent work such as 
preliminary results, provoking and current topics, novel experiences or 
interactions that may not have been fully validated yet, cutting edge or 
emerging work that is still in exploratory stages, smaller-scale 
studies, or in general, work that has not yet reached a level of 
maturity expected for the full-length main track papers. However, LBP 
papers are still expected to bring a contribution to the FG community, 
commensurate with the preliminary, short, and quasi-informal nature of 
this track.

*Why submit to the Late-Breaking Papers track at FG?*

Accepted LBP papers will be presented as posters during the conference. 
This provides an opportunity for researchers to receive feedback on 
early-stage work, explore potential collaborations, and otherwise engage 
in exciting thought-provoking discussions about their work in an 
informal setting that is significantly less constrained than a paper 
presentation. The LBP posters track also offers those new to the FG 
community a chance to share their preliminary research as they become 
familiar with this field.

Late-Breaking Papers are not published with the FG Proceedings, but the 
authors are encouraged to make these papers available on their webpages, 
or on repositories such as ArXiV. In this way, copyright is retained by 
the authors, and the material from these papers can be used as the basis 
for future publications as long as there are “significant” revisions 
from the original.

*Submission Guidelines*

*Extended Abstract: *Submissions follow FG 2020 submission guidelines 
for short paper submissions, and are properly anonymized, four-page 
papers, not including references. The paper should be submitted in PDF 
format and through the FG submission system in the "Late-Breaking 
Papers" track.

*Anonymization:* Authors are instructed not to include author 
information in their submission. In order to help reviewers judge the 
situation of the LBP to prior work, authors should not remove or 
anonymize references to their own prior work. Instead, we recommend that 
authors obscure references to their own prior work by referring to it in 
the third person during submission.

*Review Process*

LBPs will be evaluated to the extent that they are presenting work still 
in progress, rather than complete work which is under-described in order 
to fit into the LBP format. The LBP track will undergo a peer review 
process. Submissions will be evaluated by a number of factors including 
(1) the relevance of the work to FG, (2) the quality of the submission, 
and (3) the degree to which it “fits” the LBP track.


At least one author of all accepted LBP submissions must register for 
and attend the conference, including the conference poster session.
