Work-in-Progress Reports (WiPs)
Thursday, February 17, 3:30 - 4:30 pm
Short, pithy, and fun, Work-in-Progress reports introduce interesting new or on-going work. Fast paced and spontanious, the WiPs feature new ideas or novel solutions to old problems. The number of presenters is limited, so reserve your WiPs slot by sending a note to Work-in-Progress reports are generally five-minute presentations; really interesting work can get more air time.
The Texas Tcl Shoot-Out
This year the Tcl conference includes a lively coding competition! A set of programming problems (separate ones for newbie, intermediate, and expert Tcl hackers) will be published just prior to the conference and posted the first day. On the evening of the second day, any submitted code will be run and judged by Grand Master Tcl programmers, and the points of style and efficiency on which the judgments are made will be discussed for pedagogical value. On the final day, a winner or winners in each category will be announced and will receive a small Tcl-related prize.
Posters Session
Thursday, February 17, 3:00-8:00 pm
Posters, demonstrations, and presentations of projects or preliminary results that are appropriate for small groups make up this session. Attendees will have a chance to hear about exciting projects and talk with the authors about their work. To submit a poster or demonstration proposal, see the Call for Papers; the deadline is December 8, 1999.
Applications Show & Tell
Friday, February 18, 11:00am - 12:30pm
The Applications Show & Tell session is a chance for your bold/original/crazy/cool/huge/tiny Tcl/Tk application or idea to be seen briefly by your peers. Participants should prepare one viewgraph (preferably with one or two screen shots for Tk apps, and a URL if applicable) and a very brief (2-5 minute) commentary. The focus can be current work, updates to previous work, grand ideas for future work, etc. No app is too small or too large to display. Show the world what you are doing with Tcl/Tk!
