Call for contributed scientific communications

All scientific communications presented at ICANN 2020 will be reviewed and scientifically evaluated by a panel of experts. The conference will feature two categories of communications:

  • oral communications (15′ presentation + 5′ questions)
  • poster communications

All scientific communications presented at ICANN 2020 will be reviewed and scientifically evaluated by a panel of experts.

The review process is single blind: submissions should NOT be anonymous.

Authors willing to present original contributions in either oral or poster category may submit:

  • A full paper of about 10-12 pages (maximum 12 pages references included) to be published in Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series with individual DOI.
  • An extended abstract of suggested 4 pages to be published in Springer-Verlag Lecture Notes in Computer Science (LNCS) series, without indexing.

The number of oral slots is limited. In case the number of requested oral presentations is larger than the available slots the ICANN scientific committee will select which papers will be reassigned to a poster session. This selection will be based on the coherence of the programme and is totally independent of the category of submission.

Types of accepted papers

During the submission process, make sure to select the kind of contribution you want to submit. To summarize, the following options are available:

  1. Full paper for oral presentation
  2. Extended abstract for oral presentation
  3. Full paper for poster presentation
  4. Extended abstract for poster presentation.
