Papers of any category should be presented in docx and pdf formats. Final version of the paper should be in strict conformance with the template:

Categories of admissible contributions:

  • regular papers reflecting original scientific results (up to 8 pages);
  • short papers (work in progress) (up to 4 pages);
  • posters (up to two pages);
  • demos (up to two pages);
  • PhD workshop submissions (up to 6 pages).

For reviewing the papers of any category should be uploaded to the CMT site (https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/DAMDID2018/). Beforehand it is required to be registered at this site. During a paper uploading to this site, it is required to select CMT track to which this paper corresponds:

  • DAMDID Conference (for all paper categories besides those for the PhD workshop);
  • DAMDID PhD Workshop (for the PhD workshop papers).

When uploading a paper to the CMT site it is required also to indicate the paper category (as above) and to what track (tracks) of the conference topics given in the CfP the paper belongs. On the paper uploading the CMT suggests the titles of such tracks as the subject areas. One name should be chosen as the main track, as well as several names might be chosen as the secondary tracks.

Conferences DAMDID/RCDL hold face to face. Acceptance of a paper by the Program Committee assumes mandatory registration at the conference site (should be done before the camera ready submission deadline) and participation of at least one of the authors at the conference and personal presentation of this work.

Camera ready texts of the papers taking into account all reviewer remarks should be uploaded also to the CMT site before the deadline.

CEUR-WS.org now offers a model to publish data sets and similar material together with paper.

To take advantage of that, a paper submitted for the DAMDID/RCDL’2018 Conference may be accompanied by a data set used for experiments and/or illustrations of the proposed methods. The data set may also contain results of the work. The data set should be represented as a zip-archive. The total size of the paper accompanied by the dataset archive should not exceed 10MB. The dataset archive should be submitted to the CMT system as an additional file. The data set together with the paper is published in the electronic version of the conference proceedings under the CC-BY 4.0 license. A human-readable copy of the CC-BY 4.0 license should be included in the zip-archive of each data set. There should also be a file like AUTHOR.txt in the zip-archive to specify the authors of the data set (usually the authors of the paper). If the paper is decided to be published in the CEUR Workshop Proceedings, the data set archive is also published there.

General recommendations

Regular Papers (up 8 page) these contributions might contain the results of the theoretic or experimental researches, surveys of researches and developments in various domains, infrastructure-oriented projects, research project state and progress, etc.

Short papers (up to 4 pages) reflect work-in-progress, partial achievements of longer-term projects, surveys, implementation-oriented or architecture-oriented results, etc.

Posters (up to two pages) are intended for ongoing research projects, concrete experiments, or industrial applications/projects presentations, summarizing a series of results, etc. The poster may be presented during sessions reserved for posters and demos. A two-page paper summarizes a presentation intended to be a poster.

Demos (up to two pages) represent special contributions where a tool, an implementation of an application, or a freshly implemented system is presented in its alfa/beta version, etc. It might also be intended for those new applications to gather the attendee opinion. A two-page summary for a demo is intended to be. It would be scheduled for presentation at the poster and demo session.

PhD workshop contributions (up to 6 pages) represent new PhD approaches, surveys, results obtained so far, plans of what still should be done, etc.

Tutorial proposals. Tutorials provide overviews of current high interest topics. Proposals should be for 2-3 hour long. Proposals must contain the title, the summary of the content, and the biography of the presenter(s). Please, send your proposals to leonidandk@gmail.com.
