Submission and Review Process

  • Students can submit either a work-in-progress paper or a completed qualification thesis, which was submitted no more than ten months ago. The Track Chairs will divide the submission into one of the above categories. The maximum number of pages for all types of submissions is 12, including a bibliography. 
  • The participation of the supervisors as co-authors of the submission is welcome. In this case, the students act as first authors and present their work at the conference. Group work by several students is also possible. 
  • Contributions can be written in German or English. English contributions will be presented and discussed in English during the conference. 
  • All contributions must correspond exactly to the format of the conference. The format template can be downloaded from the conference website. 
  • All contributions will be reviewed by at least two members of the Program Committee (double-blind). 
  • Authors are requested to anonymise their contributions for review by omitting their name, address, etc. from the contribution. All other information that allows conclusions to be drawn about the authors, e.g. metadata, must also be deleted. The submission of the contribution for peer review is made as a PDF document. 
  • Contributions are submitted exclusively online via the conference system:
  • Submitted papers will be evaluated in the regular review process of the conference. Students receive differentiated subject-specific feedback from at least two independent reviewers of the programme committee.
