The work-in-progress (WIP) track offers authors the opportunity to share and discuss late breaking work with the community. It is a great opportunity to test new ideas and receive feedback on ongoing research that have not yet reached the level of maturity required for other types of submissions.

Submissions typically cover new theoretical concepts, experimental setups and protocols, preliminary research results or early technological developments and proofs of concepts prototypes.

Although at an early stage of research, the submission must follow the same standards of presentation and scientific quality as regular academic papers. Submitted papers are expected to fit within the subject matter scope of the conference. They must be original and cannot be submitted or published elsewhere.

Submission details

All accepted WIP papers will be archived as open-access publications with your agreement in a Zenodo collection, a CERN operated open science repository.

Review process

WIP submissions will be reviewed by at least one reviewer and the WIP chairs. Authors of accepted WIPs will be expected to use these reviews to improve their submissions before submitting the final version.


At least one author of an accepted WIP is expected to register for the conference under the regular academic or regular categories and to be present in person to present their work. Presentation of WIPs at the conference will be in the form of a poster presentation. 

The posters should be in A0 size (33.11 x 46.81 in or 84.1 x 118.9 cm) in portrait mode. The posters can be designed using any format as long as they fit within this allocated space. Authors are responsible for printing their own poster and bringing it to the conference.
