(2) Research dissemination: proposals to present research, which has already been published in high-impact venues. The proposal should contain a summary of the research conducted, a clear reference to the original publication and a short motivation of why this work is interesting to the DIR community. The proposal is limited to one page in ACM proceedings format.
