Thursday morning, the first of two FLoC panels touched a delicate topic: Publication Models in Computing Research: Is a Change Needed? Are We Ready for a Change? moderated by Moshe Vardi brought together five panelists with distinct and sometimes controversial views on the subject. Discussion covered different facets of computer science publishing, such as conference vs. journal publications, the role and importance of open access, or reviewer load in our community.
Panelists: Nina Amla, National Science Foundation. Georg Gottlob, Oxford University, Vienna University of Technology. Falk Reckling, Austrian Science Fund. Sweitze Roffel, Elsevier. Andrei Voronkov, University of Manchester.
Moderator: Moshe Vardi, Rice University
