Call for Papers

Authors may choose between two formats:  full papers and short  papers. Both formats will be rigorously peer reviewed. Complete papers are required; abstracts and incomplete papers will not be reviewed. All papers must be original contributions. The material must therefore not have been previously published or be under review for publication elsewhere. Both formats will be included in the proceedings and will be presented online at the conference. At least one author for each paper will be expected to register for the conference, and each paper will have the opportunity to be heard by a global audience.

Submission Deadline: 1 April 2021

Full papers: 

  • At most 10 PAGES
  • Report on mature work, or efforts that have reached an important milestone

Short papers: 

  • At most 4 PAGES
  • Highlight efforts that might be in an early stage, but are important for the community to be made aware of; can also present theories or systems that can be described concisely in the limited space

All accepted papers will be published by ACM as conference proceedings and electronic versions will be included in both the ACM and IEEE digital libraries.

Submission details: The paper should use the IEEE Conference Proceedings template, located at:  https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template
(US letter template, plus LaTeX and Overleaf instructions, are available.)

Paper submissions are to be submitted in electronic format via the conference’s EasyChair submission page: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=jcdl2021
