Conference participants share their work and give and receive feedback in a rigorous and collegial atmosphere. The Works-in-Progress Conference has a long tradition of welcoming and valuing research and writing projects at all stages, from those that are early in development to papers accepted for publication but still in the editing phase. The objective is to create a supportive environment in which participants can learn from one another and improve.
