Full Research Papers

Submissions of full research papers for publication in the conference proceedings are invited. Papers may address any of the areas identified in the conference topics and should take cognisance of the conference theme. Submissions should report original work and must not have been published previously. All full research paper submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international panel of experts. The review process will retain the anonymity of authors and reviewers.

Submit full papers of a maximum of 14 pages in .PDF format, using the conference submission system available through the official conference website www.INTERACT2009.org once submissions are open. Papers must be formatted according to the LNCS (Lecture Notes in Computer Science) format (see this page for a downloadable template). Accepted full research papers must be presented at the conference and will be published in the Springer LNCS Series. Authors should guarantee the anonymity of their submissions (please remove names and affiliations from the first page and any other material that would allow reviewers to identify authors).

We will follow a two-phased approach for the submission of full research papers:

  1. If you wish to submit a full research paper you must first upload an Abstract of maximum 300 words for your paper using the conference submission system no later than 14 January 2009 (note that the abstract submission deadline has been extended!). This Abstract will be used to find and assign suitable reviewers for your full paper submission. You may deviate slightly from this abstract and paper title in your final version of the paper, but please keep to the core theme since it will not be possible to change reviewers later due to the very short reviewer turn-around times. This Abstract must contain the title of your paper but must be anonymous (contain no reference to the authors). If you do not submit an Abstract you will not be able to upload a full version of the paper later on. The submission system will issue a 'passcode' when you submit the Abstract, which will be required to upload the full version of your paper later on.
  2. The full version of your paper must be the complete version of your paper and must again be anonymous (i.e. contain no details or reference to the authors). A maximum of 14 pages are allowed in the prescribed format. This complete version of your paper will be reviewed by an international panel of reviewers. This version must be uploaded to the submission system no later than 30 January 2009.
