Research and publication have a long history together, with models that date back millennia. Our experience in Computer Science has much in common with other areas of scholarship, but also some distinctive characteristics. One issue discussed and explored extensively involves the role of conferences and journals. This panel has specific focus on how our publication model might best help the research itself. Issues that arise still include the pragmatic, but also a range of other topics particular to our discipline: the role of artifacts and empirical research, the potential for new tools and infrastructure similar to those we use for software, and how best to structure research publications to support practice.
