Tenth International Conference
October 22-23, 2011
Portland, Oregon, USA
(collocated with SPLASH 2011)

Sponsored by ACM and SGT

Important dates

  • Submission of tech talk proposals: August 7, 2011
  • Author notification: August 26, 2011


Tech talks are organized by GPCE as one or two talks at the end of each day of the conference (Saturday October 22nd and Sunday October 23rd). The talks will be about an hour in length; longer than a regular conference talk, but shorter than the customary half or full day tutorials at other conferences. In contrast to research talks, tech talks do not (have to) present original new research material, but should rather focus on putting research into perspective for a broader audience. In contrast to longer tutorials, these talks cannot be very interactive or rely on the audience participating by using tools. Rather, they should aim to be 'keynote' style presentations, emphasizing the essence (but not avoiding depth).

They can be thought of as distilled tutorials that provide a focused and in-depth treatment of specific research results considered relevant to the GPCE community.

Moreover, the tech talks are included in the conference registration and are not charged separately. We hope that this will ensure high impact of the tech talks.


If you are interested in presenting a tech talk at GPCE, please send a short proposal (about two pages) to the conference chairs ( by August 7, 2011.

The proposal should consist of

  1. title
  2. abstract (250 words)
  3. name of presenter
  4. short bio (250 words)
  5. brief outline of tech talk
  6. relevance for GPCE/SPLASH audience

Items 1 to 4 should be usable on the website.

We will make a selection of tech talks based on relevance (topic-wise) for the conference and expected interest in the tech talk. Tech talk proposers will be notified of the decision by August 26, 2011.
