Call for Submissions

NetSci-X 2020 welcomes submissions to the Abstract Track or Proceedings Track.

The deadline for submission is September 30, 2019. All the submissions will undergo a peer-review process. Before preparing a manuscript, you are advised to read the following guideline. To submit a manuscript, please visit the submission page (EasyChair).

Abstract Track: Submit a one-page abstract in the PDF format including up to one figure with a caption. There is no particular template. The accepted abstracts will not appear in the conference proceedings.

Proceedings Track: Submissions may be accepted in paper format for publication in the conference proceedings provided that an author will present it at the conference. The proceedings will be published by Springer-Verlag in the book series Springer Proceedings in Complexity. Submitted full papers should follow the Springer Proceedings format (please visit their website for details). Papers should have at least 8 pages and should not exceed 14 pages in this format. Only previously unpublished, original submissions will be accepted for the Proceedings Track.

Submissions to both Tracks may be accepted for oral presentation or poster presentation. If you want your submission to be considered for a poster presentation, please add “[Poster preferred]” at the beginning of your submission title. In the submission process, you will also be asked to provide at least three keywords. The oral presentation is expected to be for 15-20 minutes (to be determined) including Q&A in one of the parallel sessions.

NOTE: If your paper is accepted in the Proceedings Track of NetSci-X 2020, dual submission of the same material to a journal is NOT allowed. Please choose the Abstract Track if you are planning to submit your work to a journal in the future.
