CASCON x EVOKE 2021 calls for two types of research papers:
- Regular papers - Original research papers at most 10 pages long.
- Short papers - Work in progress with some validation results, experience reports, new ideas and visionary papers based on supporting theory or evidence, and application papers at most 6 pages long.
CASCON x EVOKE 2021 will not accept submissions that have been previously published, are in press, or have been submitted elsewhere. We encourage interdisciplinary research papers. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published in the ACM Digital Library.
Best Paper Awards
Best Paper and Best Student Paper awards will be given to recognize the best technical contributions of the event in terms of originality, clarity, and potential impact. To be eligible for the Best Student Paper award, the primary author of the paper and contributor of the work must have been a student(s) at the time the work was done.
Paper Submission Instructions
Submissions are made via EasyChair and must be in the double column standard ACM format for conference proceedings. All types of papers should strictly follow the page limit constraint to be considered as eligible for review. The defined page limit should include the paper, figures, tables, and references. The steps for submitting a paper are as follows:
- Visit EasyChair at https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=casconxevoke2021.
- After logging in, click on make a new submission to submit your paper.
- All authors should use the official "ACM Master article template", which can be obtained from the ACM Proceedings Template pages. Latex users should use the "sigconf" option, as well as the "review" (to produce line numbers for easy reference by the reviewers).
