Topics of Interest


As a global market for infrastructures, platforms, and

software services emerge, the need to understand and deal with

its implications and its interdisciplinary challenges is

quickly growing. To address this, GECON encourages the

submission of papers, which combine at least one

economic/legal area and one technologic area. GECON list of

areas includes but is not limited to:

Publication and Submission Guidelines for Papers


Original full papers and short papers (work-in-progress papers),

which are not currently under review by another conference, will

be considered. Manuscripts will be reviewed based on technical

merit, originality, and relevance. Past acceptance rates have

been around 30 per cent in recent years.

Full papers and short papers (work-in-progress papers) shall be

submitted using the Springer LNCS format. Submitted full papers

should not exceed 12 pages and WIP papers should not exceed 8

pages (including references and appendices). For further

details, visit the GECON 2024 web page.

Paper submissions are managed through EasyChair at

The proceedings will be published by Springer LNCS.

Extended versions of up to 10 accepted papers in the Computer

Science field will be invited for publication in a special

issue of the

- Elsevier Journal of Future Generation Computing Systems.

For papers targeting mainly business and economic aspects, a

special issue of the

- Springer Electronic Markets Journal or the

- Elsevier Electronic Commerce Research and Applications

- Springer Electronic Commerce Research

with up to 15 papers is foreseen.


Submission Guidelines for Special Topic Session Proposals


GECON 2024 looks for proposals for special topic sessions. With

the objective of encouraging alternative forms of participation

that can increase the opportunity to discuss technical topics

and new ideas in a round table atmosphere, we solicit special

topic proposals.

The special topic sessions program seeks to provide venues for

specialist groups to meet, to generate focused discussion on

specific sub-areas within the economics of distributed systems,

and to engage in community-building activities. Special sessions

should provide a discussion forum for researchers in topics

related to topics of the conference, either on specific research

themes, or in emerging areas of research.

Special topic sessions can be used, for example, for giving the

opportunity to all participants to present intermediate/final

results of projects, finding partners to establish collaborative

research and innovation projects.

Special topic session proposals should describe briefly

objectives or purpose, importance of the topic, and strategies

to facilitate participation in the discussion.

The Special Topic session participants can write a joined

paper or submit individual papers for the conference proceedings.


Submission Guidelines for Tutorial Proposals


GECON 2024 looks for tutorial proposals on topics related to the

conference topics. The tutorials are supposed to give

PhD students an overview about existing concepts, challenges, and

future research directions.

Tutorial proposals should provide a title, an abstract, and a

table of content.


/Poster Submissions/


Poster presentations provide a unique opportunity for PhD

students and young researchers to present their ongoing work and

to receive constructive feedback from their peers as well as

experts in the field (including academics and practitioners) at

the GECON conference.

Authors of accepted full papers and short papers

(work-in-progress papers) are also welcome to present their work

in poster sessions, giving them a higher visibility then just giving a talk.
