Authors are invited to submit either short papers (4-6 pages, for preliminary yet interesting results) or full papers (10-12 pages, with general and detailed research contributions). Full papers are expected to back their key claims with strong evidence (such as mathematical proofs, statistical modelling, or extensive testing).
Submissions must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference. Submissions should be properly anonymized for double blinded review, therefore authors and their affiliations should be removed and language be adjusted to prevent easy identification.
There will be two awards for the most outstanding papers: one for the best paper and one for the best student paper, with a student as first author.
Proceedings will be produced and published by ACM.
For questions relating to the Call for Papers, please feel free to contact the Program Chairs.
Technical papers submitted for ACM IH&MMSec 2021 are to be written in English. Short papers must be 4-6 pages long, while full papers must be 10-12 pages long (including bibliography in both cases). Submissions must follow the new ACM conference template (please use sigconf style). Submissions should not use older ACM formats or non-standard formatting, and must be in pdf format. Authors should devote special care that fonts, images, tables and figures comply with common standards and do not generate problems for reviewers. Submissions not meeting the formatting requirements risk rejection without consideration of their merits.
All submissions should be appropriately anonymized. Author names and affiliations should not appear in the paper. The authors should avoid obvious self-references and should appropriately blind them if used. The list of authors cannot be changed after the acceptance decision is made unless approved by the Program Chairs.
AUTHORS TAKE NOTE: The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks prior to the first day of the workshop. The official publication date affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
Paper submission will be handled by EasyChair.
