!!! How can I post a Workshop Position Paper or a Workshop abstract in the Workshop Discussion Space Wiki?

'''Workshops Discussion Space Wikis (WDSWs) operation''':
----------------------------------------------

The idea of the workshops track is that they are a "not so formal" track as the sessions track. That is to say that workshop organisers can manage
themselves all the process as they want.
Of course a workshop abstract reviewing process will be done.

For that reason a Workshop Discussion Space Wiki (WDSW) was created for each workshop. We created a template for Workshop organsiers and workshop participants, but you can edit your WDSW as you want. It is very simple. Concretely we created:

*One template for uploading/downloading the Workshop Position Paper (WPP): Position paper under discussion: WorkshopPaper.pdf
*One template for uploading/downloading one abstract: Example of abstract: AbstractExample.pdf
*One comment box.

If the WPP have not been already uploaded, you can see a superscript triangle at the end of the link of WorkshopPaper.pdf template. That means that your Wiki is
ready to accept an upload (provided that you know the password of the WDSW) when you click on the link. After the WPP has been uploaded the
triangle does not appear anymore. Now the link is ready to download the WPP when you click on the link.

'''Only one caution''': when uploading a file in the attach wiki service you select the file you want to upload (browsing in your computer), and then you can name the
attachment as you want. If you maintain the name that the template offers you, you do not have to do anthing else!!!!, but if you change the attachment name,
then you should edit your wiki space to get a new template like: [[Attach:new_name_you_have_given.pdf | whatever_name_you_want_to_appear_in_the_web]].
If you do not make this change in the template, the file, even though it has been uploaded in the wiki space, cannot be downloaded from the web.

The same operating rules are valid for the abstract template in order that workshop abstracts could be uploaded to the wiki.

We have provided you with one template for one abstract, but Workshop organisers and/or the authorised (by the password) workshop contributors can/should replicate
as much templates as you need. It is really very simple. Please try it, and you will see that it is quite powerful and useful.

REMEMBER:
*To edit the Wiki and to upload files in the WDSWs people needsto know the workshop password which Workshop organisers know
*To download files and to post comments from the WDSWs there is not any permission required
*We have provided a template to show how workshop organisers and workshop participants could organise their wiki space, but following the idea of a wiki, all could be
collaboratively organised and done as their organisers and/or workshop participants want.
*Wikis have an extremely collaborative and fast working spirit which make them very attractive
*Once providing the password you can see on the right top corner of your WDSW two new buttons: Edit and Attach. With edit you can edit your space as you want, and with attach you can attach files to the attach space of your wiki.

If you have doubts, in htpp:/www.pmwiki.org explains the basic options of the wiki.

The assignment of co-authors is not even necessary unless that the main author is not presenting the paper. In that case, it is mandatory that the co-author who is presenting the paper be assigned as a co-author, in order that she/he can be registered and make the appropriate fee payment for the congress. If other co-authors are attending the congress, and thus, they also need to make their fee payment, they must be registered as co-authors.

!!! Do I need to register co-authors of a session abstract/paper?

'''Assignment of co-authors is not ever needed''':
---------------------------------------------

The assignment of co-authors is not even necessary unless that the main author is not presenting the paper. In that case, it is mandatory that the co-author who is presenting the paper be assigned as a co-author, in order that she/he can be registered and make the appropriate fee payment for the congress. If other co-authors are attending the congress, and thus, they also need to make their fee payment, they must be registered as co-authors.

Thus, it is important to list coauthors especially when a coauthor is expected to attend the conference and deliver the paper in place of the person who submitted the abstract.
Anyway, the association between paper and authors can be done at any stage by the person who originally submitted the abstract.
