The submission process includes the steps listed below. Note that failure in correctly following all the steps within the deadlines may result in your paper being rejected.
→ The paper must be written in correct English and follow general academic standards and a proper structure depending on the category (see Paper Categories).
→ The author must use the ICEGOV2020 ACM Microsoft Word Template, available here.
→ No other template can be used for paper submission. Do not modify the document properties: just write your content and apply the necessary styles pre-defined on the template.
→ The paper must not contain any information about the authors that would reveal their identity (e.g. name, email address, affiliation, etc.), nor any acknowledgements / references that could also reveal the identity of the author(s). ICEGOV is a double-blind peer review conference, meaning that the authors do not know the name of the reviewers and the reviewers do not know the name of the authors.
→ The paper must be submitted through the EDAS Conference and Journal Management System by the paper submission deadline (11 October 2019), available here.
→ The author must have an EDAS account to login. Follow the on-screen instructions to login or register (whichever applies). The registration in EDAS is free of charge.
→ To submit the PDF file, follow the on-screen instructions and comply with the page numbers and parameters below, otherwise the system will automatically reject your submission:
- Document size is US letter (8.5 x 11 in or 21.59 x 27.94 cm).
- Number of columns is two columns.
- The file is not a scanned image.
- The file is not encrypted.
- The file is not print-only.
C) Review and Notification
All papers submitted to the conference within the deadline will undergo the following 4-step process:
1. Screening by the ICEGOV Secretariat;
2. Reviews by the Programme Committee (max. 3 reviews per paper);
3. Review of all papers on each Track by the respective Track Chairs;
4. Final review of accepted / rejected papers by the Programme Committee Chairs.
All authors will be notified about acceptance or rejection decisions, together with the reviews and other information, by 4 December 2019. Instructions on how to prepare the final version of the paper will be sent on this day as well, as will visa invitation letters.
