1 Generic information

2 Fundamentals

  • CEUR-WS focuses on:
    • workshops (rather not conferences);
    • computer science (i.e. authors should mostly come from a computer science background).
  • CEUR-WS.org publishes computer science proceedings.

2.1 Computer science

  • A computer science workshop proceedings is characterized as follows:
    • The organizers and program committee members come overwhelmingly from computer-science departments and have a degree in computer science (or a related discipline such as information systems, business informatics).
    • The vast majority of papers included in the proceedings have at least one author coming from a computer science department and/or having a computer-science degree (or a related discipline such as information systems, business informatics).
    • The papers in the proceedings mainly apply research methods from computer science (or a related discipline such as information systems, business informatics).
    • It is not sufficient to use computer programs for conducting the research while applying research methods from another discipline such as material science.

2.2 English

  • The majority (50% or more) of the papers in a volume must be in English.
    • English is the de facto standard when you want to target an international audience.
    • The submitted papers have to be written in the Latin alphabet. Spell author names in Latin characters (accents are allowed).
    • Avoid non-Latin characters in the paper titles (in some cases special characters, e.g. for mathematical concepts, are allowed).
  • If you submit papers written in a language different to English, we must be able to verify the scientific character of the papers.
    • Therefore, for papers written in a language different than English, we require that you provide an English translation of the paper titles in the index file and additional English abstracts in the papers.
    • This is not just to be able to verify the scientific character of a paper, but also to make the content of these papers accessible to the international scientific community.
    • An English abstract and title allows any scientist to decide whether the contribution of a paper is relevant to his or her research.

3 Conference Compliance Checklist

  • Is this WS located to the well-known conference?
  • What about the PC? Are there different names and people with a good dblp footprint?
  • Editors and author footprint also high?

4 Why a workshop might be rejected

  • Virtually all papers are by PhD students of a single university.
  • All PC members are from a single university.
  • The PhD symposium has many submissions, all were accepted.
  • The symposium was not affiliated to an international conference.
