Call For Papers
9th Annual Tcl/Tk Conference
September 16-20, 2002 
Vancouver, BC, Canada 

We are pleased to announce the 9th Annual Tcl/Tk conference, to be
held September 16-20, 2002, in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

This conference is a forum to: 

     * bring together Tcl/Tk researchers and practitioners 
     * publish and present current work involving Tcl/Tk 
     * learn about the latest developments in Tcl/Tk 
     * plan for future Tcl/Tk related developments 

The conference program will include paper presentations, tutorials,
Birds of a Feather (BOF) sessions and invited key-note talks.  This
call invites you to submit extended abstracts to be considered for
the conference program.  The conference schedule will consist of 2
days of tutorials (Monday - Tuesday) and 3 days for the main
conference (Wednesday - Friday).

Submission of Extended Abstracts

The conference provides an opportunity to report on original Tcl/Tk
research.  The audience is practitioners and researchers who are
intermediate or experienced users of Tcl/Tk.  For this reason,
reports on experiences and applications must draw out lessons for
other Tcl/Tk developers.  Topics include, but are not limited to:

     * System extensions 
     * Novel Tcl/Tk-based applications 
     * Experience reports on building applications in Tcl/Tk 
     * Comparative evaluations of Tcl/Tk and other languages or
       toolkits for building applications 
     * Use of different programming paradigms in Tcl/Tk and
       proposals for new directions. 
     * New areas of exploration for the Tcl/Tk language 

Extended Abstracts should be written in English and 600 to 1000 words
long (1-2 pages).  Omit extraneous or redundant information.  Length
is not a direct factor in judging the quality of the submission.

Send submissions as plain text to <> no later
than April 28, 2002.  Authors of accepted abstracts will have until
August 20, 2002 to submit their final paper for the inclusion in the
conference proceedings.  The proceedings will be made available on
CD-ROM, so extra materials like code samples are welcome.

The authors will have 20-25 minutes to present the paper at the

The program committee will review and evaluate papers according to
the following criteria:

     * Quantity and quality of novel content 
     * Relevance and interest to the Tcl/Tk community 
     * Suitability of content for presentation at the conference 

Proposals may report on commercial or non-commercial systems, but
those with only blatant marketing content will not be accepted.

Application and experience papers need to strike a balance between
background on the application domain and the relevance of Tcl/Tk to
the application.  Application and experience papers should clearly
explain how the application or experience illustrates a novel use of
Tcl/Tk, and what lessons the Tcl/Tk community can derive from the
application or experience to apply to their own development efforts.

Papers accompanied by non-disclosure agreement forms will be returned
to the author(s) unread.  All submissions are held in the highest
confidentiality prior to publication in the Proceedings, both as a
matter of policy and in accord with the U. S. Copyright Act of 1976.

Other Forms of Participation

The program committee also welcomes proposals for panel discussions
of up to 90 minutes.  Proposals should include a list of confirmed
panelists, a title and format, and a panel description with position
statements from each panelist.  Panels should have no more than four
speakers, including the panel moderator, and should allow time for
substantial interaction with attendees.  Panels are not presentations
of related research papers.

Slots for Works-in-Progress (WIP) presentations and
Birds-of-a-Feather sessions (BOFs) are available on a first-come,
first-served basis starting in August 2002.  Specific instructions
for reserving WIP and BOF time slots will be provided in the
registration information available in June 2002. Some WIP and BOF
time slots will be held open for on-site reservation, so we encourage
all attendees with interesting work in progress to consider
presenting that work at the conference.

Registration Information

More information on the conference will be available in Spring 2002
at the conference web site (
and published on various Tcl/Tk-related information channels.
