Submission instructions

Submissions are in the form of anonymous extended abstracts in PDF format, formatted according to the official LaTeX or MS Word templates that can be downloaded from the submission website. The submission should include a title, a list of 5 keywords, and an extended abstract (serving as the main text of the submission). The abstract should outline the impact of the work, along with (if relevant) the main theoretical contribution, data and methods used, and findings. Authors are strongly encouraged to include figures and/or tables in their submission.

Submission Length: We have improved our submission guidelines to constrain the number of figures and tables allowed. Extended abstracts should comprise a maximum length of 2 pages excluding references, figures and tables. The authors can additionally include up to 5 (in total) figures and tables. No appendices are allowed. When submitting, authors will be also asked to provide a short summary paragraph that will be used during the review bidding phase. As the review process is double-blind, please do not include the author(s) names or affiliation(s) in the paper, and do not include funding or other acknowledgments. Papers violating the submission guidelines will be desk rejected, and the decisions made will be final and binding.

Types of contributions: The accepted contributions will be selected for one of the following presentations:

  1. a lightning talk (~6 mins) in a plenary session
  2. an oral presentation in parallel tracks
  3. a poster presentation session
Lightning talks will be preferentially assigned to those requesting this form of presentation at submission and to early career researchers. In order to be included in the program, at least one of the authors must register for the conference by the early-bird registration deadline.

No published proceedings: Submissions will be non-archival, and thus the presented work can be already published, in preparation for publication elsewhere, or ongoing research. Abstracts will be reviewed by multiple members of a Program Committee composed of experts in computational social science.
