IDA 2015 will feature two tracks: the regular Proceedings Track, as well as a 
Horizon Track for early-stage research of potentially ground-breaking nature.

- Goal & Background
The Horizon Track is a fine-tuned version of last year's First Look Track.
It aims to provide a forum for potentially ground-breaking research that is however
not yet mature enough for archival dissemination. You may have a great idea that
needs to be investigated in more detail, or you may have a long-term vision that
you would like to share. In these cases, it may be impossible or undesirable to
publish a preliminary version of your paper in the proceedings, but presenting
and discussing it at IDA may be of interest to both you and the community.

- Call for Horizon presentations
To be considered for a Horizon Track presentation, you are required to submit a
title and a short abstract (<250 words) and optionally any other material (e.g.,
an extended abstract, a partial manuscript, a presentation, a movie, a website, ..)
that may help us to review the submission against the stated criteria. Titles and
abstracts of contributions accepted for the Horizon Track will be listed on the
website and included in the proceedings front matter, but any other material submitted
will be used for reviewing only, and will not be publicly divulged in any form.
Horizon Track contributions may be accepted for either oral or poster presentation.

- Do you prefer submitting a regular paper?
