Long papers require an abstract in advance of the paper itself. See the dates section below.
Long paper submissions (10 pages, anonymized, in SIGCHI publication format) should describe substantial contributions of novel ongoing work that has produced advanced results. Accepted submissions will be presented in the main conference program, published in the conference proceedings, and authors may be considered for an additional live demonstration in the conference demonstration session.
Long papers are subjected to a blind review process. We will use a relaxed model that does not attempt to conceal all traces of identity from the body of the paper. Authors are expected to remove author and institutional identities from the title and header areas of the paper. Further suppression of identity in the body of the paper is left to the authors’ discretion. We do expect that authors leave citations to their previous work unanonymized, so that reviewers can ensure that all previous research has been taken into account by the authors.
Long paper submissions will have a rebuttal phase, which will allow authors to provide clarifications for the reviewers in a short text.
Long papers will be classified into one of the following categories:
Technical solution papers present solutions that are novel or significantly improve existing solutions to the engineering of interactive computing systems. A technical solution paper must include a preliminary assessment of the proposed solution. The solution must be stated clearly enough so that it is possible to replicate it in later research. Beyond the actual design and solution (which can be presented in other conferences such as UIST or CHI), paper submitted to EICS should focus on the process for identifying and building the solution. How such process can be reused in other context is also very relevant. Generic solutions such as notations, tools or architectures used and their assessment are of particular interest.
Case study papers report experience gained on case studies and on applying engineering to large scale interactive computing applications. We are interested in the problems and challenges faced, and in how successful, or not, the adopted solutions were.
All submissions are due not later than 23:59 hrs PST on the dates indicated.
