Abstract submission before
March 15, 2021
Notification of acceptance by
Late April 2021
We accept four-page abstracts presenting:
Original research efforts and papers
New tools, technologies, and experiments
Submissions are limited to 3 pages of text and 1 page with references. It is encouraged to include a graphical abstract with the submission.
CI-2021 does not publish proceedings (not in the ACM Digital Library). However, we plan to post a “book of abstracts” on the CI-2021 website available to all registered participants.
All submissions should use the following templates:
Submission should be converted to PDF before submitting.
(NB: the conference is now closed for submissions)
To encourage a diversity of relevant topics from various fields of study, submissions can refer to work that is published recently, under review, or in preparation. It may refer to a public paper that describes the work in more detail. All submissions will be assessed based on the enclosed abstract, which should provide a self-contained description of the work.
New tools and technologies
CI-2021 accepts contributions that demonstrate applications of innovative tools and technologies in illustrative experiments.
Demos from prior conferences can be resubmitted using the standard template above following the general format.
Feedback and review process
Authors will not receive detailed feedback from the review process but only an accept/reject decision.
The main criteria for acceptance are:
a good fit with the subjects for CI-2021, and
interesting perspective finding with a promise to present supportive evidence and arguments.
All accepted abstracts will be made available to conference participants on-line and are not intended as archival publications that preclude submission of the reported work to an academic journal. However, we cannot rule out that certain journals may have policies that preclude the distribution of extended abstracts. The accepted abstracts will be made available as submitted and should be camera-ready.
If an abstract is accepted for presentation at least one author must commit to attend the conference.
