SUBMISSIONS

The Classification Research Workshop welcomes submissions from various

either a full-length research paper for presentation at the workshop or a
position paper that will serve as the focus for group discussion during the
workshop's break-out session.  Any submission may include a background
paper as an attachment.

Full-length RESEARCH PAPERS:
Researchers who wish to prepare a full-length research paper for
presentation at the workshop should submit:
        1)  A two- to three-page, single-spaced extended abstract
summarizing substantive work that has been conducted in an area related to
classification.
        2)  A brief, one-page statement describing the research interests
of the submitter and the reason for participating in the workshop.

One-page POSITION PAPERS:
Researchers who wish to propose a topic or focus area for group discussion
during the break-out session should submit:
        1)  A brief, 250- to 500-word abstract summarizing the topic and
its relevance to classification research.
        2)  A brief, one-page statement describing the research interests
of the submitter and the reason for participating in the workshop.

Submitted abstracts and topic proposals will be refereed for acceptance.
The authors of accepted papers will be asked to submit an expanded version
of the original paper which will also be refereed for inclusion in the
workshop proceedings.  Some of the authors of expanded papers will be
invited to speak to their papers in brief presentations during the
workshop.  Authors of expanded papers and successful proposers of
a discussion topic for the break-out session are expected to attend the
workshop.

All expanded research papers and position papers will be published in the
preliminary workshop proceedings that is mailed to all early registrants
prior to the workshop.  Following the workshop, authors of expanded papers
will be given the opportunity to revise their papers for final publication.
Authors of position papers will be expected to include with their papers a
summary of the group discussion.  All papers will be published in Advances
in Classification Research Vol. 9: Proceedings of the 9th ASIS SIG/CR
Classification Research Workshop.

Previous proceedings have been published as Volumes 1 through 8 of Advances
in Classification Research: Proceedings of the nth ASIS SIG/CR
Classification Research Workshop and are available from the publisher
