Submission Guidelines

Regular papers should not exceed 12 pages in length, excluding references, contact information and a clearly-marked appendix of arbitrary length that will be read at the discretion of the PC members. When preparing your submission, please follow these formatting instructions. The easiest way of doing so is to use the Latex typesetting system with the class file comsoc2020.cls. The formatting instructions are based on a sample file (comsoc2020.tex, comsoc2020.pdf), which you can use as a starting point for your own paper (the filenames with 2020 still apply for 2021).

You will be able to revise your submission any number of times before the deadline.

All submissions will be electronic via the EasyChair page for the conference (open for submissions)

All submitted papers will be reviewed by the program committee (review is not double-blind, and there is no need to anonymize your submission). Accepted papers will be collected in informal workshop notes and will not be printed. To accommodate the publishing needs of different scientific communities, we stress that authors will retain the copyright of their papers and that submitting to COMSOC-2021 does not preclude publication of the same material in a journal or in a conference with formal proceedings.

Submission of regular papers is restricted by the rule that a single person can present at most one paper at the workshop.

Anonymous Submissions

COMSOC does not require anonymous submissions, but this is allowed (e.g. in case you want to comply with anonymity requirements of other conferences, or for any other reason). You can open a new Easychair account, or ask the program chairs to submit on your behalf (then your submission will be anonymous for the reviewers but not to us). If you are interested in the latter option, please contact Reshef before March 1st.

Industry Track

COMSOC-2021 will allow the submission of papers describing recent applications of computational social choice to real world problems, reports on implemented and deployed tools, etc. See call for papers here.

Student poster submission

COMSOC-2021 will also include a student poster session. See details here.  Posters will be selected based on abstracts. Unlike regular submissions, they will not be reviewed by the program committee; the intention is to accept all posters that fall within the scope of the workshop subject to space constraints.
