Submission Instruction

Submissions must be original, and should not have been formally published or accepted for publication elsewhere. We also invite longer versions of papers published in short form elsewhere. We explicitly welcome papers which have been rejected at the main INTERACT conference but which would still be suitable for a workshop. The exact submission deadline can still change to a later date after final announcements regarding workshops have been made by the main conference.

Formatting Guidelines

Papers should be formatted according to Springer LNCS format. Authors should consult Springer’s author guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for MS Word, to prepare their papers. Springer’s proceedings LaTeX templates are also available in Overleaf.

Long papers are allowed eighteen (18) pages. Short papers, not exceeding eight (8) pages, may be submitted for short or poster presentation. Late and breaking papers which highlight current developments or characterise open challenges are allowed six (6) pages. For all paper types, pages containing only references and acknowledgements are not counted towards that limit.

Submission Procedure

Submissions will be opened shortly.

Review Process

Three members of the program committee will review each submission (two members for late and breaking papers). A review form will direct committee members to evaluate submissions for appropriateness, technical strength, originality, presentation, and overall evaluation, as well as recording the reviewer's confidence in the topic.

Accepted Papers

The proceedings of the workshop will be published electronically and made freely available. Depending on the nature of submissions, the proceedings will be published through a suitable channel such as the CEUR Workshop Proceedings. Authors of accepted papers might be invited to submit extended versions for inclusion in a special journal issue on contextualised systems, if justified by the quantity and quality of submissions.

The authors will be responsible for producing camera-ready copies of papers in PDF format, conforming to the formatting guidelines, for inclusion in the published proceedings.

At least one author of each accepted paper is required attend the workshop to present the contribution, either in-person or virtually. For virtual presentations, a video with the presentation has to be submitted by the camera-ready deadline. Details will be given in the notification email. Please be advised that every workshop participant has to register for MRC through the main INTERACT conference website.
