Categories of papers

Regular papers (full or short papers) should relate to an original research work and discuss concrete research findings. Regular papers could be:

  • Original contribution papers (accepted as full or short papers) describe new research contributions. They define theories and/or build artifacts, describe the related research, and propose a solution validated via scientific methods, such as experiments, analyses, simulations, mathematical proofs or field/case studies.
  • Experience evaluation papers (accepted as full or short papers) present existing experiences encountered in practice. They define related challenges, and propose new scientifically-validated solutions to one or more of those challenges. Papers in this category seek to create innovations based on cutting-edge computer science and information systems capabilities.

Position papers relate to an ongoing research or experience. Papers submitted within the Call for Position Papers cannot be accepted as regular papers. However, time and space allowed, position papers will be presented by the authors alongside regular papers. Position papers could be:

  • Challenge papers that propose and describe research challenges in theory or practice of computer science and information systems. The papers in this category must be based on deep understanding of existing research or industrial problems. Based on such understanding and experience, they need to define new exciting research directions and show why these directions are crucial to the society at large.
  • Emerging research papers that present preliminary research results from work-in-progress based on sound scientific approach but presenting work not completely validated as yet. They must describe precisely the research problem and its rationale. They must also define precisely the intended future work including the expected benefits from solution to the tackled problem. Subsequently, they may be more conceptual than experimental.
