Call for Papers

Format

Authors should consult Springer’s authors’ guidelines and use their proceedings templates, either for LaTeX or for Word, for the preparation of their papers. Springer encourages authors to include their ORCIDs in their papers. In addition, the corresponding author of each paper, acting on behalf of all of the authors of that paper, must complete and sign a Consent-to-Publish form. The corresponding author signing the copyright form should match the corresponding author marked on the paper. Once the files have been sent to Springer, changes relating to the authorship of the papers cannot be made.

The maximum length of the papers is 12 pages, including figures and references.

Submission

All proposed papers must be submitted in electronic form (PDF format) using the SSCt 2021 conference management system.

For a paper to appear in the proceedings, at least one of the authors must register for the conference by the camera-ready copy deadline. Papers must be presented by one of the authors at the conference live.

Review process

SSCT 2021 welcomes the submission of application papers with preference to the topics listed in the call for papers. All submitted papers will undergo a thorough review process; each paper will be refereed by at least three experts in the field based on relevance, originality, significance, quality and clarity. The papers must consist of original, relevant and previously unpublished sound research results related to any of the topics of the conference.

Each submission must be identified as presenting (1) theoretical/methodological research, (2) applied research/emerging applications, (3) a deployed application, and will be reviewed using criteria appropriate to its category, (4) literature surveys. These criteria are as follows:

  • Theoretical/methodological research: Scientific significance, originality, technical quality, and clarity;
  • Applied research/emerging applications: Significance for theoretical research or promise for application deployment;
  • Deployed application: Demonstrated practical significance; originality; treatment of issues of engineering, management, and user acceptance; and clarity;
  • Literature survey: Well-developed body of research, the inclusion of works from several authors, significance, clarity, open research questions.

Publication

Accepted papers will be included in SSCt2021 Proceedings. At least one of the authors will be required to register and attend the symposium to present the paper in order to include it in the conference proceedings. All accepted papers will be published by AISC Springer Verlag.

Call for Workshops

SSCt2021 workshops are devoted to promoting the investigation of the latest research in smart cities and territories and their effective development; to explore the latest innovations in guidelines, theories, models, ideas, technologies, applications, and tools to assess the impact of the approach, and to facilitate technology transfer.

The SSCt2021 conference invites proposals for the Workshop Program. Members of all segments of the community are encouraged to submit workshop proposals for review. The workshop program is intended to complement the formal technical program of the main conference and to support more in-depth interactions. Workshops can vary in length from half a day to a full day. The format of workshops will be determined by their organizers.

Proposals for workshops should be two to three pages in length and include the following information:

  • Proposed title of the workshop.
  • A brief description of the workshop, specifying the workshop goals and the issues that will be its focus.
  • A brief description of why the workshop would be of interest to SSCt2021 attendees.
  • A preliminary workshop format and a proposed schedule for organizing the workshop, including desired length for the workshop.
  • If available, a list of possible participants or research groups. Ideally, workshop organizers would contact likely participants to assess interest; please indicate those on the list who have said they are likely to attend.
  • The names, postal addresses, telephone numbers, and email addresses of the proposed workshop organizing committee. This committee normally consists of two to four people knowledgeable in the area.
  • The primary contact for the organizing committee.
  • A draft call for papers.

Each workshop organizing committee will be responsible for:

  • Producing a Call for Participation for their workshop. This call will be posted on the SSCt2021 website. It should clarify the process by which the organizing committee will review and select the papers and presentations.
  • Advertising the workshop.
  • Reviewing and selecting presentations and papers.
  • Providing the workshop's selected papers in a camera-ready format to the workshop chairs.
  • Meeting all deadlines in a timeline to be provided by the workshop program.

Program Committee may suggest the consolidation of workshops to prevent the need for cancellation. All workshop participants must register for the conference (at least one author of each accepted paper must register before the submission of the camera-ready copy), and workshops must be open to all registered participants.

Doctoral Consortium

The SSCt2021 Doctoral Consortium (DC) will take place as part of SSCt2021 virtually. It is designed to nurture PhD candidates by providing them with opportunities to explore and obtain mutual feedback on their research, future work plans, and career objectives with senior researchers, practitioners, and peers. We invite submissions from students, as described below. Selected students will be asked to prepare and present an oral presentation at the DC. Additional social arrangements will be arranged to encourage further conversations with mentors and fellow students, in a teleconference setting.

We encourage participation from all PhD students, whether at the start or towards the end of their PhD candidacy. Participants need to clearly indicate their stage of PhD research. Those who are at the early to midpoint stage of their candidacy and who have not yet received substantial feedback from the greater research community will be paired with a mentor who will advise them on their research trajectory, writing and presentation. Those who are at a later stage in their research will have an opportunity to present their PhD work to date to a group of senior researchers for feedback and advice.

Format

All DC must be formatted according to the AISC template, with a maximum length of 5 pages, including figures and references:

Submission

We welcome applications from PhD candidates worldwide. To apply, please submit the following materials, in a single PDF file, via the SSCt2021 EasyChair submission system:

  • Application Cover Page (max 1 page): This should include your goals for participating in the DC, questions on your research topic or research to date that you may wish to discuss and get advice on, and what you can offer to other DC participants.
  • Research Summary (max 5 pages): This should outline the problem(s) being addressed, the proposed research plan, and a description of progress to date. This short paper must be in ICCBR 2020 LNCS Springer format and include references.
  • Curriculum Vita (max 1 page): This should list the student’s most relevant background, experience (research, education, employment) and publication references (if any).

Review process

SSCt2021 welcomes the submission of application DC with preference to the topics listed. All submitted DC will undergo a thorough review process based on relevance, originality, significance, quality and clarity.

Publication

Accepted DC will be included in SSCt2021 Proceedings, published by Springer. The PhD student will be required to register and attend the symposium in order to include the paper in the conference proceedings. All accepted papers will be published by AISC Springer Verlag.
