Contributions to the conference have to be submitted via Easychair
( ), the name of the event there is IC2S2.
Each submission consists of an extended abstract of max 2 pages (A4).
Please give a sufficiently detailed description of your work, put at least one
figure, otherwise it will be difficult for the PC to assess its relevance.
Short, paper-like abstracts will not be considered. Abstracts do not need to
refer to unpublished work. If the work is published or under submission
elsewhere it is fine. We want to give to everyone the opportunity to present
the most relevant work to the topics of the conference. There will be no
proceedings, but we are going to have a special journal issue in EPJ Data
Science ( ), where selected contributions will be
published. Authors of those contributions would be invited to submit full
papers after the conference. Each extended abstract will be reviewed by two PC
members. Abstracts can be submitted from September the 15th till November 15th,
2014. We will do our best to have mostly oral presentations of the selected
contributions, both plenary and in parallel sessions. However, there will be a
poster session as well. During the submission process, you will be asked to
specify whether your contribution is intended for a) Plenary session
presentation, b) Parallel session presentation or c) Poster session
presentation. The final allocation of each contribution will be decided by the
Program Committee.
