Paper Selection Process and Publication

This special track of the MEDES conference will follow the general guidelines of the conference with respect to the submission (easychair site) and paper selection. A special committee will also evaluate posters and all selected papers will be published in the MEDES conference proceedings. Revised version of selected papers, posters and projects will be published in the SINERGIA journal of the Federal Institute of São Paulo, with the same opportunities for selection to journal special issues.


Paper Submission

Submissions must be in an electronic PDF format and must be uploaded using the conference website. The submitted full paper, demonstration and poster should be at most 8 ACM single-space printed pages. Please use the following templates to generate your PDF: MS Word and Latex.

Papers that fail to comply with length limit will be rejected. Submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least 3 peer reviewers. After the preliminary notification date, authors rebut with evidence and arguments all reviewer inquiries and their comments. Based on the rebuttal feedback, reviewers notify authors with the final decision. Selection criteria will include: relevance, significance, impact, originality, technical soundness, and quality of presentation. Preferences will be given to submissions related to applied research and innovation. At least one author should attend the conference to present the paper.
