Submission of research papers and research in progress papers and doctoral forum
Submission system is now CLOSED!Research papers
Research in progress papers
The symposium encourages the submission of high quality research papers that have not been previously published and are not under review for another conference or journal. Submissions are welcomed in any of the symposium themes. All accepted research papers will be published in the symposium proceedings by a major publisher.
Submissions will be reviewed by at least three members of the international program committee on the basis of the originality of the research presented, the quality of the theoretical contribution made by the research, the validity and robustness of the methodology chosen, the significance of the results presented and the overall contribution to our understanding of information interaction in context.
Research papers must be submitted through the IIiX symposium's management system. Please ensure that your submission does not exceed 5,000 words in length and is formatted using the ACM templates, using either MS Word or Latex with the "Option 2" style. This is also the style that will be required for the camera ready copy of the accepted papers. Papers must be submitted as pdf files.
All submissions should be anonymous. No page should identify the authors or their affiliations. The first page must contain the title of the paper, an abstract of not more than 150 words, and up to 2 areas taken from the symposium themes. Topic areas are necessary to ensure that your submission is reviewed by appropriate experts in your area of research. Authors who cite their previous work should refer to themselves in the third person, e.g. "In  Smith and Akkerman demonstrated that...". Papers should contain at most 5000 words. Papers that are clearly longer than the limit will be rejected immediately.
Research in progress papers
Research in progress papers should describe novel research that is at an early stage in development and is not sufficiently mature to warrant a full paper. These papers should describe research that is ongoing not merely proposals for research. Research in progress papers will be reviewed as ongoing research but quality criteria will apply as to the full papers. Research in progress papers must be submitted through the IIiX symposium's management system. Submissions in this category should not exceed 2,000 words in length, and should be formatted using the ACM templates: using either MS Word or Latex with the "Option 2" style. This is also the style that will be required for the camera ready copy of the accepted papers. Papers must be submitted as pdf files. Accepted papers will be presented at the symposium but will be given a shorter time for presentation than the full research papers. The working language of the conference is English.
