Full and Short Papers
ACI2020 call for Full and Short Papers
COVID-19 update: To account for the fact that, due to ongoing restrictions, some may not be able to complete work that would have been presented in planned papers, we are now allowing the submission of extended abstracts instead of complete papers.
Each extended abstract must include at least: an introduction clearly outlining the argument and research questions for the paper; a well-developed background and related work section; as appropriate, a well-motivated methodology section describing the (planned) empirical work and the kind of data (to be) collected; a (pre-)discussion with any reflections possible at the current stage of the work (e.g. if we found x, this could mean y and the implications could be z). All extended abstracts will be reviewed and selected for presentation at the conference based on their potential to become high-quality publications to be included in the conference proceedings. At least one author from each paper must register for and present at the conference, in order for their paper to be published. If the conference needs to be held virtually, or if presenting authors cannot attend physically, presenters will be asked to provide their recorded talk in advance (instructions will be provided in due course) and during the conference their presentation will be webcast followed by a live discussion session.
After the conference, authors will be given a time window to complete their papers, which will again undergo peer reviewing prior to publication in the ACM Digital Library as a part of the ACI2020 conference proceedings. Incomplete papers or papers that do not fulfill the potential suggested by the extended abstracts will not be published in the proceedings.
We invite extended abstracts of long and short papers. While for short papers we welcome contributions that present work in progress, full papers are expected to present work that is at a relatively advanced stage and has already yielded results other researchers or practitioners could potentially benefit from.
Submissions must be anonymous, which means that authors and their institutions must be omitted from the submitted file. References to the authors’ previous work may be made in third person.
Once completed, long papers must be no more than 10 pages plus references; short papers must be no more than 5 pages plus references.
Extended abstracts and subsequently complete papers must be submitted as a single PDF file using the ACM Interim Template (please note that this is the old ACM template, referred to as 'interim layout').
Authors may also submit a supplementary MP4 video of up to 3 minutes and 50MB, but this is not necessary.
All submissions will undergo a double blind review and will be selected based on the quality of their contribution. Each submission will be reviewed by a minimum of 3 reviewers from program committee members and external domain experts.
Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library within the ACI2020 Proceedings Volume, provided that at least one of the authors must register for and attend the conference to present the paper.
