Papers should be concise. Omit extraneous or redundant text. Length is not a direct factor in judging paper quality; however, historically, most papers are 12 pages or less. Consider trimming longer papers, possibly by splitting into separate and more focused papers. Authors of accepted papers will have twenty minutes to present the paper at the conference. Submissions for review must be full papers, written in English. Authors are encouraged to include black-and-white figures in their papers.

The program committee will review and evaluate papers according to the following criteria:

  • Quantity and quality of novel content
  • Relevance and interest to the Tcl/Tk community
  • Quality of presentation of content in the paper
  • Suitability of content for presentation at the conference

Papers should be 8-12 single-spaced pages and should present a cohesive piece of work. Papers so short as to be considered extended abstracts will not receive full consideration. Papers may report on commercial or non-commercial systems, but those with blatant marketing content will not be accepted.

Application and experience papers need to strike a balance between background on the application domain and the relevance of Tcl/Tk to the application. Application and experience papers should clearly explain how the application or experience illustrates a novel use of Tcl/Tk, and what lessons the Tcl/Tk community can derive from the application or experience to apply to their own development efforts.

This conference requires that papers not be submitted simultaneously to other conferences or publications, and that submitted papers not be previously published or accepted papers subsequently published elsewhere within a period of one year after acceptance. Papers accompanied by non-disclosure agreement forms will be returned to the author(s) unread. All submissions are held in the highest confidentiality prior to publication in the Proceedings, both as a matter of policy and in accord with the U. S. Copyright Act of 1976.
