conference accepts long papers that report Completed Research or Research-In-Progress
and short papers reporting innovative ideas, experience, or tools.
- Completed research papers
should not only discuss research findings, but also the initial research
objectives, the research methodology used, as well as its appropriateness
and its execution.
- Research-in-progress papers
report on research that is well under way with preliminary results
available at the time of the conference. These papers should clearly
identify the research objectives of the ongoing research effort, the
research methodology used, and the progress made so-far.
- Idea papers may present
completely new research approaches or adaptation of existing approaches to
new types of emerging challenges. The papers should precisely describe the
shortcomings of current methods, the innovative aspects of the suggested
approach, and its potential to make change.
- Experience reports are
expected to report on work done in a context of a real-life organization.
They should describe the practical goals of the work, the
organizational/business context, the methods or theories used, and the
- Tool demonstration papers
should be related to the conference topics. They should include the
research background and application context, the key technologies used,
the novelty of the tool, and its limitations.
Please use the
following format for your submissions:
- Long papers (Completed
Research and Research-in-Progress) should not exceed 15 pages (including
references and appendices).
- Short papers (idea papers,
experience reports, and tool demonstration) should not exceed 8 pages
(including references and appendices). The presentation of these
papers may take an interactive form (e.g., a poster or a demo session).
