Electronic Participation (ePart) Conference

The conference allows for four distinct types of submissions:

  • Research papers (max 12 pages, published in LCNS Springer)
  • Ongoing research and project papers (max 8 pages, published in Trauner)
  • Workshops and panels on pertinent issues (up to 3 pages)
  • PhD colloquium submission


Research papers
These papers should have a strong focus on scientific rigour and may be a maximum of 12 pages. Papers in this track will be peer reviewed for rigour, relevance, originality and clarity of presentation. Abstracts or incomplete papers will not be accepted.


On-going research papers
These papers describe novel concepts, works-in-progress, or other ideas and issues that are not currently suitable for a complete research paper. They may be a maximum of 8 pages. Papers in this section will also be peer reviewed, but the focus is on relevance more than scientific rigour.


Workshops and Panels
Proposals for workshops and panels (3 pages) should include rationale, objectives, expected outcomes, approach to audience participation.

Submissions are only possible through easychair system at http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=epart2012.
