Call for Papers

Updated: 2/23/2011

Four types of submissions are solicited:

a) Full research papers

The papers in this category are the reports on the accomplished research work. They present a novel method, technique or analysis with appropriate empirical or other type of evaluation as a proof of validity. The main evaluation criteria for this category are originality, technical soundness and the soundness of evaluation.

Page limit: 16 pages


b) Short research papers

The papers in this category are the short reports of the preliminary results or describing the work in progress. The main evaluation criteria for this category are originality, technical correctness and possible value of the planned results in a short to mid-term perspective.

Short papers can be presented in a form of an extended abstract.

Page limit: 8 pages/2 pages for an extended abstract


c) Discussion or problem analysis papers

The papers solicited in this category will not present any novel method, technique or approach to solving a problem, but help to understand the problem itself. We expect in-depth discussions and analysis of a certain problem, with clear definitions and argumentation in terms of qualitative or quantitative representation of the main characteristics of the problem. We also expect a reasonable review of the state-of-the-art stating in how far current solutions fall short. Papers will be evaluated with respect to how general and technically sound their problem analysis is and how useful it will be for other researchers working on the same problem.

Page limit: 16 pages


c) Industry experience reports or case studies

The papers reporting on industrial deployments of ICT are solicited in this category. The papers will be evaluated according to the significance and practical relevance of the described deployments as well as with respect to the technical soundness of the described solution and accompanying evaluation or industrial validation.

Page limit: 16 pages


The papers in all categories should describe original results that have not been accepted or submitted for publication elsewhere. 


The submissions will be evaluated by at least three members of the international program committee. Several degrees of acceptance will be applied:

-       The papers with the highest evaluation scores that will be published in the international proceedings volume

-       The papers with moderate evaluation scores that will be published in the Special Issue of the  Ukrainian Scientific Journal or Magazine

-       The extended abstracts with acceptable evaluation scores that will be published in the Conference Abstract Volume by the local Ukrainian publisher

Paper submissions must be in English. Abstracts and extended abstracts may be submitted both in English and Ukrainian or Russian.
