We will accept both published papers as well as those intended for publication elsewhere. We welcome submissions on any topic, but we are especially interested in:
Faculty, graduate students, industry researchers, policy makers, and non-profit workers are all encouraged to submit data-driven research for consideration.
Contributions to the conference should be submitted via EasyChair.
The submission should include a list of authors and their affiliations, with a minimum of one designated corresponding author, a title, an abstract summary paragraph, a list of 5 keywords, and an extended abstract with at least one figure, formatted as a PDF file no larger than 20MB. Please give a sufficiently detailed description of your work and your methods so we can adequately assess its relevance. Each extended abstract will be reviewed by two Program Committee members. Note that abstracts longer than 3 pages will be automatically rejected.
For additional information, see Extended Abstract Template (.docx) and EasyChair Instructions (.pdf)
Abstracts can be submitted starting November 25, 2015. The deadline for submission is January 31, 2016. Notice of acceptance will be April 30, 2016.
We will do our best to have mostly oral presentations of the selected contributions, both plenary and in parallel sessions. However, since we cannot estimate the number of submissions we may accept some abstracts for a poster session.
