Guidelines for contributors

DACOMSIN workshop accepts the following forms of submissions:

  • short papers (6-9 pages) and full papers (10-12 pages),
  • extended abstracts of posters (1-6 pages),
  • extended abstracts of demostrations (1-6 pages).

All submissions have to be provided in English in MS Word (DOCX) and in PDF formats. The submissions have to conform with the Springer LNCS Word template: ftp://ftp.springernature.com/cs-proceeding/llncs/word/splnproc1703.zip  and follow Springer Guidelines for Authors of Proceedings: ftp://ftp.springernature.com/cs-proceeding/svproc/guidelines/Springer_Guidelines_for_Authors_of_Proceedings.pdf

DACOMSIN 2019 workshop shares a submission system with the host DAMDID 2019 conference. All submissions should be uploaded to the Microsoft Conference Management Tool at https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/DAMDID2019/ where a special track named “DACOMSIN Workshop” is created. Please select this track for the upload of your workshop submission.

Your contribution may be accompanied by a dataset. The dataset may contain illustrations of the proposed methods, or/and data used for experiments (input data) or/and results of the work (output data). The dataset should be represented as a ZIP archive and submitted to the conference system as an additional file. The total size of the paper or the extended abstact accompanied by the dataset should not exceed 10MB.

The accepted paper and the dataset will be published in the electronic version of the DAMDID conference proceedings under the CC-BY 4.0 license. In case the paper is accompanied by a dataset, a human-readable copy of the CC-BY 4.0 license should be included in the ZIP archive of the dataset. There should also be a file named AUTHOR.txt in the zip-archive to specify the dataset authors (usually the authors of the paper).

If the paper is decided to be published in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings http://ceur-ws.org/ (which will be subject to the CEUR own evaluation), the dataset archive is also published there. The advantage of publishing in the CEUR series is better visibility through indexing by DBLP https://dblp.uni-trier.de/ and Scopus.

Abstracts of posters and demonstrations are required to be between one and four pages long if your prime intention is to only present your work in the workshop. If you want your abstract considered for publishing in CEUR volume, too, please make sure it is at least five pages long. Recommendations for the datasets publishing along with the abstracts of posters and demonstrations are the same as for papers (see above).

It is highly recommended to include References section in the extended abstract of a poster or a demonstration, similarly to how you do it when you author a paper. References may be previous (published) work, products, prototypes, projects, data or software – anything that will help reviewers to evaluate the quality of your submission, and will make it easier for readers to understand the origins and the context of your work.

The authors will be notified about acceptance of their contribution by the date indicated in the Call for Contributions. Camera-ready texts of the accepted contributions will have to take into account reviewers’ remarks and will have to be uploaded onto the same Microsoft CMT site before the deadline indicated in the Call for Contributions.

Programme and Organizing Committees assume mandatory registration and participation in the workshop of at least one of the authors. The workshop registration should be completed before the camera-ready submission deadline.
