Submission Site

We use a double-blind reviewing process. Please, do not include the author’s name and affiliation or any other type of information that may disclose the authors in the submitted paper itself. As a result of the reviewing process, the Program Committee may suggest changes in the format and/or the contents of the paper, including the category of the paper. In this case, a paper will be conditionally accepted. The Program Committee Chairs will decide on the final acceptance or rejection based on a second analysis of the revised paper. The papers should be submitted via EasyChair at:

Journal Special Issue

The authors of the best papers presented at the Conference will be invited to submit extended versions to a journal special issue. In the past, Special issues were published in the Journal of Universal Computer Science (open access), Information Systems Frontiers, International Journal of Cooperative Information Systems, and E-Services Journal.
