For colloquium/workshop descriptions, visit our website:


Colloquium Talks and Posters:

Abstracts are invited for slots for oral presentations lasting 45 minutes + 15 minutes of discussion. In addition, GLOW 36 will be holding a poster session. When submitting an abstract, the author(s) should indicate whether they wish to be considered for an oral presentation only or would also be willing to present a poster. Financial reimbursement will be limited to oral presentations.


20 papers will be selected for oral presentation and additional 30 papers will be selected for the poster presentation.

Submission Guidelines:

Submission Procedure:

All abstracts (including abstracts for the workshops) must be submitted online through EasyChair:


The abstract deadline is November 15, 23:59 CET. Notifications of acceptance/rejection will be sent out on January 20, 2013.


Abstracts (for oral presentations and posters) must not exceed two A4 pages in length. This includes data and references. Submissions must be consistent with the following format:

- 2.5 cm (1 inch) margins on all four sides. On A4 paper, these margins produce a 160mm x 247mm text box. Submitters whose computers are set up for other paper sizes should adjust their margins accordingly to produce a text box of this size. This is especially important for the legibility of the Spring Newsletter.
- Font size no smaller than 12pt, with single line spacing; no more than 50 lines of text per page, including examples. Times New Roman.
- Examples must be integrated throughout the text of the abstract, rather than collected at the end.
- Nothing in the abstract, the title, or the name of the document should identify the author(s).
- At most two submissions per author, at most one of which can be single-authored. The same abstract may not be submitted to both the Colloquium and a workshop.
- Only submissions in .pdf format will be accepted.

Named Abstracts and the Spring Newsletter:

If your paper is accepted for presentation at GLOW 36, you will be asked to submit a non-anonymous version of your abstract for publication in the GLOW Spring Newsletter. In case any problems should arise, please contact the organizers (glow36nordlund.lu.se) and the Newsletter Editor (richardsem.uni-frankfurt.de).

It is particularly important for publication purposes that all non-standard (non-open source) fonts in the named version of accepted abstracts be either properly embedded into the PDF file or else avoided altogether.

Workshop Talks:

The same guidelines as for the Main Colloquium.

Important Dates:

Deadline for abstract submission: November 15, 2012
Notification of acceptance: January 20, 2013
Conference: April 2-6, 2013
