Call for Dissemination Events
The 2018 Federated Conference on Computer Science and Information Systems cordially invites you to consider contributing a “Dissemination Event.”
A number of grant mechanisms (in particular, EU / NATO-funded research / coordination actions, etc.) involve dissemination of results in the form of workshops, symposia, etc. Since the FedCSIS multi-conference consists of a significant number of events related to various areas of ICT, it is a natural place for organization of grant-related events.
Proposals for new Dissemination Events are going to be accepted until February 28, 2018. Proposed Events can run over any span of time within the conference dates; from half-day to four days.
Dissemination Events are offered an opportunity to publish an individual volume in the Annals of Computer Science and Information Systems (ACSIS) series (http://annals-csis.org/). Publication will have ISBN, ISSN and DOI numbers and will be submitted to citation indexing engines (including SCOPUS, DBLP and Google Scholar). Maximum length of individual contributions to be included in such volume will be established between event organizers and Chairs of the FedCSIS conference series.
Dissemination event proposals should include the following information (2 pages maximum):
- The nature of the Event (name of the grant/action/activity it is associated with).
- The title of the Event, and a clear description of the topic.
- The complete contact information of the Event organizers, including a link to their personal websites.
- Indication of the expected number of papers/attendees to attend the Event.
- Information about requested services related to promotion / marketing of the event / grant.
Event organizers should email their proposals (in a single pdf file) by January 19, 2018, to the FedCSIS Secretariat at: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Each Event is considered a satellite Event of FedCSIS. All basic information about the Event, including its Call for Papers and a link to the FedCSIS-provided Paper Submission System, is going to be published in a unified form on the FedCSIS website.
- The Event’s Chair(s) may publish a more complete and up-to-date information on other websites, but all references to the Event must explicitly mention its association with the FedCSIS.
- The Event’s Chair(s) should advertise their Event, to the best of their ability, through their own channels, and solicit submissions.
- Each Event conducts submissions and reviewing as a track in the multi-track Conference Management System (CMS) system made available to events by the FedCSIS organizers.
- The Event’s chair(s) manage the paper submission and reviewing processes according to the best practices and the process defined by the FedCSIS conference management system.
- For scientific ethical reasons, Event Chair(s) are not allowed to submit their papers for reviewing in their own Event, but can submit for external reviewing in another FedCSIS event. Once a paper is accepted, the Event Chair(s) can choose to present it in their own Event.
- The paper submission formats are specified by the FedCSIS. The total length of a paper should be no less than 4, and not exceed 10, pages and should be formatted according to the IEEE style template made available to the authors from the FedCSIS site.
- Only papers submitted personally by the author(s) into the conference submission systems can be subjected to review and potential acceptance. Each paper will receive at least two reviews prior to the acceptance/rejection decision.
- The acceptance rate for all events should follow the guidelines established by the Chairs of the FedCSIS Conference Series.
- Registration of participants, and all financial and local arrangements are managed by the FedCSIS organizers, according to the principles highlighted below.
- All the due dates for paper submissions, author notifications, camera-ready submissions and registrations are the same for all FedCSIS Events. However, some deadlines may be extended based on justified requests by the Event’s Chair(s).
- An Event with less than ten accepted papers/presentations is deemed to fall below the expectations for an autonomous Event. Subject to negotiations with the Event’s organizers, such an Event may be cancelled or included as a special session within another thematically close Event.
- The Event’s Chair(s) ought to prepare the final program in a publishable format according to the formatting guidelines provided by the FedCSIS organizers.
- The Event’s Chair(s) are expected to come to the conference to coordinate the Event sessions and stimulate discussion.
