How to submit?

All submissions are required to:

  •  be submitted via EasyChair Conference Management System: CLOSED
  • in case of full or short papers, posters abstracts (except DOCTORAL CONSORTIUM contribution) NOT indicate the authors’ names and affiliations and to refer to prior work appropriately, because the review process will be double-blinded.

Information to help prepare the Blinded Manuscript

Besides the obvious need to remove names and affiliations under the title, authors biographies within the manuscript, there are other steps that need to be taken to ensure the manuscript is correctly prepared for double-blind peer review.  To assist with this process the key items that need to be observed are as follows:

  • Use the third person to refer to work the Authors have previously undertaken, e.g. replace any phrases like “as we have shown before” with “… has been shown before [XXXXX, 2007]” .
  • Make sure figures do not contain any affiliation related identifier.
  • Cite papers published by the Author in the text as follows:  ‘[XXXXX, 2007]’.
  • Name your files with care and ensure document properties are also anonymized.

Review process and publication

To ensure selection of high quality contributions, full and short paper submissions are reviewed by at least three reviewers. 

Criteria for the review process include:

  • impact of the contribution to the field,
  • contextualization of the contribution within the field,
  • links to existing theory,
  • thesis and chain of reasoning/research method and results (academic papers), presentation, evaluation, discussion (other formats),
  • language and expression,
  • formal requirements.

All submissions will be considered thoroughly and constructive feedback will be provided. Accepted full and short papers will be published as described in the Call for Papers.

At least one author must register and present accepted papers in order for the paper to be included in the conference proceedings.
