The Work-in-Progress track is intended as a forum to share novel ideas and emerging results and it is open to late breaking work and work in progress. WiP papers are expected to report on early or ongoing research activities, presenting current and emerging work that has not been fully realized or developed, for which full empirical data may not yet be available, or that has not yet reached a level of maturity expected for other types of submissions.
