Schedule for Track Chairs
NOW – May 31, 2019:
Solicit papers. Abstracts are encouraged – but not required. Abstracts can be useful to you in several ways:
They give you an early indication of the topics of manuscripts that you will be receiving, which areas of interest will be covered, and which will not. This is much better than finding out in June, when it will be very difficult – if not impossible – to secure additional manuscripts.
They can show if you have inadequate coverage in a particular area. You can send out personal messages to those working in a particular area requesting a manuscript for consideration.
Give authors who submit an abstract to you careful guidance to make their paper more likely to be accepted. Tell them if you want them to re-direct or re-focus part of the manuscript to deal with certain issues. Get authors to submit manuscripts via our conference’s site before paper submission deadline (August 31, 11:59 PM, Hawai‘i time). These submissions must be in publication format and in line with the instructions to be posted on the HARC website.
