Emerging Research Track

The emerging research track invites authors to present and discuss preliminary results from their latest research and obtain early feedback from the research community. Also welcome are position and idea papers on emerging research challenges. Correspondingly, the track distinguishes two paper types:

  • Work In Progress papers should present preliminary research results that may not have been entirely validated. The work should be advanced enough to allow attendees to appreciate the scope and significance.

    As with standard research submissions, papers will be reviewed for novelty, relevance, technical quality and scientific soundness, but the review criteria will be relaxed to reflect the preliminary nature of the work - submissions with still open research issues or currently limited evaluation are all welcome. The authors are encouraged to list the open issues in their submissions explicitly.

    Work In Progress papers must carry a “(Work In Progress Paper)” notice in their title and should not exceed 6 pages.

  • Position / Vision / Idea papers are invited to present positions on emerging research topics or visions and ideas that have not yet progressed to a work in progress stage. Besides basic technical correctness, the submissions will be reviewed for their potential to motivate future research and stimulate debate on the existing research challenges. The authors should clearly present the research questions and their rationale, sketching possible approaches to their resolution.

    The Position / Vision / Idea papers must carry a respective “(… Paper)” notice in their title and should not exceed 4 pages.

The submission deadlines are listed on the important dates page.

Submissions must be appropriately anonymized for the double blind submission process. Please see the Double Blind FAQ for more details.

Submissions are made via Easychair and must be in the standard ACM format for conference proceedings. More specifically, the double column formats have to be used for all paper submissions: Latex preferred, Word. Papers must not exceed the page limit for the relevant paper type, which includes figures and tables, but not references and appendices. The camera ready version of the accepted papers may use up to 1 extra page to remove anonymization and address potential shepherding comments, but may not add significant non reviewed content.

Instructions for Authors from ACM:

By submitting your article to an ACM Publication, you are hereby acknowledging that you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies, including ACM’s new Publications Policy on Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects. Alleged violations of this policy or any ACM Publications Policy will be investigated by ACM and may result in a full retraction of your paper, in addition to other potential penalties, as per ACM Publications Policy.

Please ensure that you and your co-authors obtain an ORCID ID, so you can complete the publishing process for your accepted paper. ACM has been involved in ORCID from the start and we have recently made a commitment to collect ORCID IDs from all of our published authors.
The collection process has started and will roll out as a requirement throughout 2022.
We are committed to improve author discoverability, ensure proper attribution and contribute to ongoing community efforts around name normalization; your ORCID ID will help in these efforts.
