Each paper is to be submitted electronically as a single PDF file through ICONF, via this link.
Submissions must be formatted according to Manuscript Template.
Papers not respecting the formatting instructions or page limits may be rejected without review.
Except for extended abstracts, submissions must be unpublished and must not be under submission elsewhere. All submitted papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance, significance, and clarity.
WCSA 2021 solicits papers in the following three categories:
- Long papers: technical papers reporting original research or survey papers
- Short papers: papers reporting promising work-in-progress, system descriptions, position papers on controversial issues, or survey papers providing a synthesis of some current research trends
- Extended abstracts of recently published work in a relevant journal or top-tier conference
Regular research papers should be at most 14 pages (including references, figures, and tables). Short papers should be between 5 and 8 pages. Extended abstracts should be at most 2 pages and should reference the originally published work.
Accepted and presented papers will appear in ACM conference proceedings (ISBN: 978-1-4503-8939-6), which will be online, and indexed by EI Compendex, Scopus.
Authors of an accepted long or short paper will be expected to give a presentation at the conference. Authors of accepted abstracts will be expected to present their work during the conference, but the extended abstracts will not be published in the proceedings (they will be made available in a separate booklet).
