Overview

iConference papers push the boundaries of information scholarship, explore core concepts and ideas, and help identify new technological and conceptual configurations.

The iConference papers track includes two subcategories: Full Research Papers and Short Research Papers. Both subcategories are described below. Submissions will be refereed in a double-blind process.

All papers accepted for presentation at iConference 2019 will be published in Springer’s Lecture Notes in Computer Science series and will therefore be indexed by major services such as Web of Science and Scopus. The papers will be published as Green Open Access allowing them to be deposited in institutional repositories as well as in the open access Illinois Digital Environment for Access to Learning and Scholarship (IDEALS).

Awards will be presented to the best papers in each category. We welcome you to review the official proceedings of past iConferences.

2019 Full Research Papers Call

Guidelines: All papers must follow the guidelines on our Author Instructions Page
Length: Up to 10 pages (excluding references) in Springer’s prescribed LNCS template
Timeline:

  • Submission deadline: September 10, 2018
  • Notification date: mid-November, 2018
  • Final versions due: December 14, 2018

Full research papers should present new and original research results from empirical investigations and experiments, or from theory and model development. Papers presenting a new system design or implications for design are also encouraged. Full research papers should not exceed 10 pages in length (excluding references).

2019 Short Research Papers Call

Guidelines: All papers must follow the guidelines on our Author Instructions Page
Length: up to 6 pages (excluding references) in Springer’s prescribed LNCS template
Timeline:

  • Submission deadline: September 10, 2018
  • Notification date: mid-November, 2018

The goal of this submission type is to encourage the iConference community to present new, provocative, and cross-cutting themes in a short paper submission. Short research papers might include, but are not limited to, critical literature reviews of an emerging topic, theory building that is in the early stages of development, or new analysis / methods applied to existing data. Short papers should not exceed 6 pages in length (excluding references). (Note that authors wishing to present “preliminary results” or “early work” are encouraged to submit their work to the posters track).

Submission Information

The following is a brief summary. Papers authors should also familiarize themselves with the detailed requirements and guidelines on our Author Instructions Page.

Submissions will be made using the ConfTool submission system. Submissions must be in English. Author-identifying information must be removed from first submissions to facilitate blind review. All papers must follow Springer’s prescribed LNCS template.

Submitters agree that if their work is accepted, at least one author will register during the Early registration period, and present the accepted work at iConference 2019. We reserve the right to withhold publication if none of the authors register.

Failure to adhere to the appropriate guidelines on our Author Instructions Page may result in the work not being reviewed, or not included in the proceedings.
