Paper submission:

Enter the COMSOC-2014 Paper Submission and Reviewing System!

Submissions can be revised any number of times before the deadline.

Regular papers should not exceed 12 pages in length, excluding references, contact information, and a clearly-marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the program committee. When preparing your submission, please follow these formatting instructions. The easiest way of doing so is to use the Latex typesetting system with the class file comsoc2014.cls. The formatting instructions are based on a sample file (sample.tex), which you can use as a starting point for your own paper.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by the program committee. Accepted papers will be collected in informal workshop notes that will not be printed. To accomodate the publishing needs of different scientific communities, we stress that authors will retain the copyright of their papers and that submitting to COMSOC-2014 does not preclude publication of the same material in a journal or in a conference with formal proceedings. Submission of regular papers is restricted by the rule that a single person can present at most one paper at the workshop.

This year COMSOC will also include a poster session. Posters will be selected based on abstracts of up to 250 words, which can be sent by email to Pat Loring at, with the subject "COMSOC-14 poster submission: NAME OF PRESENTER". Unlike regular papers, a single author is allowed to present multiple posters.

Please contact either one of the program chairs, Ariel Procaccia and Toby Walsh, should you have any questions.
