Call For Work-in-Progress Short Papers

Is your research a Work-In-Progress? You still have an opportunity to showcase your exciting preliminary results in the CICom Conference.


We encourage practitioners, researchers and especially PhD students to showcase their research questions, goals, methods and results in the Works-in-Progress Short Papers Track. This unique track provides an excellent opportunity for sharing valuable ideas, eliciting useful feedback on early-stage work, fostering discussions and collaborations among colleagues.

All registered papers will be submitted for publishing by Springer and made available through SpringerLink Digital Library.

Proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in leading indexing services, Ei Compendex, ISI Web of Science, Scopus, CrossRef, Google Scholar, DBLP, as well as EAI’s own EU Digital Library (EUDL).

Additional publication opportunities:

Paper submission

Papers should be submitted through EAI ‘Confy+‘ system, and have to comply with the Springer format (see Author’s kit section).

All conference papers undergo a thorough peer review process prior to the final decision and publication. This process is facilitated by experts in the Technical Program Committee during a dedicated conference period. Standard peer review is enhanced by EAI Community Review which allows EAI members to bid to review specific papers. All review assignments are ultimately decided by the responsible Technical Program Committee Members while the Technical Program Committee Chair is responsible for the final acceptance selection. You can learn more about Community Review here.
