Practitioner Papers


World Congress 2009 encourages vendors, users, developers and researchers to submit practitioner papers (2 or more pages) related to the theme of the conference describing solutions, challenges, experiences, and success stories as well as lessons learned from failure. Practitioner papers provide anecdotal descriptions of situations, problem solving approaches and lessons learned from real-world projects. They discuss the benefits and drawbacks of approaches used in actual practice. Papers may focus on a particular aspect of technology usage in practice, or describe broad project experiences.


Authors of practitioner papers selected by the conference chairs will be invited to make a 15-minute presentation at Congress 2009.
