  • Identify a significant problem in the field of research and clearly formulate the research question
  • Outline the current status of the problem domain and related solutions
  • Present clearly any preliminary ideas, the proposed approach and the results achieved so far
  • Describe the research methodology that is applied or planned
  • Outline the contributions of the applicant’s work to the problem domain and highlight their uniqueness

All contributions must be submitted anonymously in PDF format, following the ACM template:
