Practically all papers at CEUR-WS.org are in PDF format, like with most online publication channels. Is this format sufficient? I think that supplementary material like datasets, source code, reviews etc. would significantly increase the utility of a paper for the scientific community. Currently, such supplementary material (if any) is put on repositories detached from CEUR-WS.org. This can create inconsistencies, e.g. when the data set is removed or altered. So, what about allowing authors of accepted papers to publish a “fat paper” , i.e. the printable paper (PDF) plus supplementary material. Are there standards available for such papers? Would you prefer a mandatory semantic annotation of the supplementary material? How can licenses be handled, e.g. for source code?
