Publishing Information

ECCE 2023 proceedings are planned to be published by ACM International Conference Proceedings Series and disseminated through ACM Digital Library.

Best long papers will be published in the Behaviour & Information Technology (BIT) journal (impact factor for 2022-2023: 3.086).

Submission Guidelines

All submissions should be written in English and authors should anonymise their papers.

All submissions fulfilling the submission requirements will be peer-reviewed by three reviewers (double-blind), and accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, which will be made available to conference attendees and published in the ACM digital library.

One author per accepted paper is required to register and attend the conference to guarantee publication in the proceedings.

Submission Categories

For ECCE 2023 we invite authors to submit novel research contributions and innovative applications related to the conference topics. The following paper categories are welcome: full long or short papers, demonstrations, workshops, and doctoral consortium proposals. 

Long and Short papers

Long papers must not exceed 10 pages, including all sections, references, and possible appendices. Short papers must not exceed 6 pages, including all sections, references, and possible appendices. All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference.

Submissions of full papers are handled through EasyChair:

Submissions should be anonymized and converted to a valid PDF format prior to submission to EasyChair by the new extended deadline April 17, 2023.


Demonstrations are about showing work in a setting that allows for open discussion. These sessions are suitable for authors who wish to present and demonstrate their work, small projects, systems, or prototypes in an interactive and informal setting during ECCE 2023. Demonstration proposals should be no longer than 2 pages and should explain the work to be presented, the nature of the presentation, and the relevance of the presentation to the conference themes. 

Demonstration proposals, along with specific requirements for the demonstration (e.g., size of equipment, power, networking, etc.) should be directed directly to the program chairs by April 17, 2023 (extended deadline).



This year we welcome ideas for workshops, which will take place on Tuesday 19th September 2023. The suggested topics should be related to the aforementioned themes. Inquiries and Submissions of workshop proposals must be directed directly to the program chairs by February 28th, 2023.


Doctoral Consortium papers

We warmly encourage doctoral students to apply to the doctoral consortium held on the first day of the conference (Monday 18th September 2023), which will be supervised by two leading experts. Submissions to the Doctoral Consortium should include a two-page summary of the Ph.D. student’s work (including research context, past accomplishments, future directions, and problems encountered) and a 1-page CV.

Upon acceptance, students have to submit a consortium paper (no longer than 6 pages), including references and possible attachments. DC papers revised and submitted according to reviewer comments will be published in the ACM Digital Library along with the conference proceedings. Inquiries and Submissions of the Doctoral Consortium papers should be sent directly to the doctoral consortium chairs by May 22, 2023 (extended deadline).

Students whose Doctoral Consortium (DC) papers are accepted will get free registration to the conference (supported by EACE).


Work-in-Progress papers

We are inviting Work in Progress papers, which present new contributions for which the research work has not yet been completed. This means that, for example, papers can be published where only a basic prototype has been developed so far, only a preliminary user study or none at all has been conducted, or which outline concepts and prospects for the planned research.

Work in Progress papers should be no longer than 6 pages (including references).

Work in Progress submissions will be published in the ECCE 2023 conference proceedings in the ACM Digital Library.

Work in Progress submissions must be sent directly to the Work in Progress paper chairs:

The deadline for work-in-progress submissions is May 22, 2023, and notification of acceptance will be on June 1, 2023.
