|Philosophy Dates||NSPW is highly interactive in nature. Authors are
encouraged to present ideas that might be considered risky in some other
forum. All participants are charged with providing feedback in a constructive
manner. The resulting brainstorming environment has proven to be an excellent
medium for furthering the development of these ideas. Many authors have
mentioned that they received more useful feedback and ideas than from any
other conference. The proceedings, published after the workshop, have consistently
benefited from the inclusion of workshop feedback.
What makes a paper acceptable for NSPW? While we reject plenty of excellent papers that would do very well at other venues, our eclectic program committee particularly looks for new paradigms, innovative approaches to older problems, early thinking on new topics that are not necessarily fully polished, and controversial issues that might not make it into other conferences but deserve to have their try at shaking and breaking the mold. Conversely, a great paper that does not have a new paradigm, does not challenge the status quo, or does not critique an older paradigm will almost certainly get rejected.
To participate, please submit your paper, justification, and attendance statement, preferably via e-mail, to both Program Chairs -- Brenda Timmerman <email@example.com> and Darrell Kienzle <DKienzle@NAI.com>-- by Friday, March 30, 2001 (hardcopy submissions must be received by Friday, March 23, 2001). Further details on the required format of submissions follow.
