The official language of the conference will be English, which is also mandatory for the final papers published in proceedings.
Evaluation & Acceptance Processes
Two categories of submissions are available: scientific or industrial.
All papers have to be submitted through our electronic submission system “EasyChair” by precising if this is an academic or an industrial category. The program committee reserves the right to redirect presentations towards the appropriate track if needed. Each submission will be subject to two referee reports under the responsability of two different members of the program committee.
Contributions will be accepted either for a 30-minute talk or for a poster workshop. One day of the conference CSD&M 2018 will be dedicated to this occasion.
- Scientific submissions (scientific category)
Scientific contributions should present innovative methodological, technical or scientific results. These consist in a PDF (Word or LaTex) of 12 pages maximum. Scientific contributions can be accepted either for a 30-minute talk or for a poster workshop.
The scientific contributions accepted for a 30-minute talk or for the poster workshop will be published in the conference proceedings (full article for 30-minute talk authors and abstract for poster authors). At this stage, the document must necessarily be re-submitted according to specific style (if not done yet), which means a zip with a 12-page LaTex file and images apart or a 12-page Word file including images (see more details here below).
- Industrial submissions (industrial category)
The aim of industrial contributions is to present good practices, feedbacks and case studies. An industrial submission consists in a 12-page (maximum) Latex or Word in PDF or in a 15-slide (maximum) PowerPoint presentation in PDF. Industrial contributions can be accepted either for a 30-minute talk or for a poster workshop.
Accepted industrial submissions in PowerPoint will be made available on the conference website and on flash drives given to all participants, and they can be part of the conference proceedings only if the concerned authors transform their PowerPoint format into a 12-page Word or Latex version. The refereeing of such articles will be under the responsibility of the two program committee co-chairs, and will take place during the end of the selection process.
Abstract submission (optional) – March 30, 2018
Authors are invited to participate (on a voluntary basis) in a pre-submission scheme before March 30,2018. They can submit their names & affiliations with the topics, keywords & abstract of the contribution they intend to submit at a later stage. Authors can indicate among the members of Program Committee, the most adequat referee if any (for optimizing evaluation management). Authors who only want to present a poster (not a talk) can precise this specificity at this stage.
Paper Submission Deadline – May 18, 2018
All authors must submit their papers in PDF format through our electronic submission system before the deadline. No other submission process will be accepted. They can, as mentionned previously, submit their paper as a 12-page Word or LaTex in PDF or in a 15-slide PowerPoint in PDF. The maximum number of pages has to be respected.
