Please submit your papers and/or extended abstracts electronically using the EasyChair conference management system. The submission system will be opened on June 1, 2021. A manuscript should only be submitted to one track. All manuscripts and proposals must be submitted by July 15, 2021. For up-to-date information about the conference and related events, please check the conference website. Any questions regarding this call for papers should be addressed to the appropriate track chair(s) or the Program Chairs.


We welcome two types of submissions:

  1. Competitive Sessions – Two types of submissions are allowed in competitive sessions:

    • full paper submissions which must be less than 50 pages double space, inclusive of all materials, including appendices and references.

    • shorter submissions (i.e. extended abstracts up to 10 pages doubled space) focusing on projects that are advanced enough and show good potential. 

  2. Interactive Sessions – Shorter manuscripts or work-in-progress pieces that could benefit from informal feedback from other participants are appropriate for submission to the interactive sessions. These sessions are held in a poster-style or roundtable discussion format that allows for interaction with other researchers with similar interests. Interactive submissions can be of an extended abstract nature and no more than 10 pages double spaced.

To assure a blind review, authors must avoid revealing their identities in the body or reference section of the paper. Authors should do the following:

  • Do not include a front-page with author-identifying information.

  • Remove the author identifying information from the document’s file properties. In Word, this can be done by using/clicking on the “Properties” feature (use Word’s Help resource for further details on how to use it).

Please note that submitting a manuscript as a competitive paper does not necessarily mean it will end up in a competitive session. The best papers in each track will be placed into the competitive sessions while lesser-developed papers will be placed in interactive sessions. The number of competitive papers we can accept for the conference is limited and therefore sometimes fully developed papers will be placed in an interactive format session due to space considerations.
