Call For Papers

*** Call for Late Breaking Results ***

10th International Conference on Behavioural and Social Computing (BESC 2023)

October 30 - November 1, 2023, 5* Golden Bay Beach Hotel, Larnaca, Cyprus

(*** Submission Deadline: 31 August, 2023 AoE ***)

The International Conference on Behavioural and Social Computing (BESC) is a major
international forum that brings together academic researchers and industry practitioners from
artificial intelligence, computational social sciences, natural language processing, business
and marketing, and behavioural and psychological sciences to present updated research
efforts and progresses on foundational and emerging interdisciplinary topics of BESC,
exchange new ideas and identify future research directions.

The BESC series of conferences are technically sponsored by IEEE SMC (Systems, Man and
Cybernetics) Society as well as IEEE CIS (Computational Intelligence Society) and the
proceedings are published by IEEE

BESC 2023 invites now submissions for Late Breaking Results. The submitted papers should be
of original, high-quality research addressing cutting-edge developments from all areas of
behavioural and social computing. The conference aims to bring together researchers and
practitioners from academia and industry to share their knowledge, experience, and
perspectives on the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities in this rapidly evolving field.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

● Understanding the Citizen's Behavior in Cognitive Cities
● Nudges and Behavioural Computing Models for a Sustainable and Equitable


The paper submission system is using Easy Chair and the submission link is: .

All papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality,
relevance to BESC 2023, originality, significance and clarity.

Please note:
• All submissions should use IEEE two-column style. Templates are available here:
• All papers must be submitted electronically through the paper submission system in PDF
format only. BESC 2023 accepts research papers (6 pages), special session papers (6 pages)
and Doctoral Symposium papers (4 pages).
• The page count above excludes the references (but includes any appendices).
• Paper review will be double-blind, and submissions not properly anonymized will be
desk-rejected without review.
• Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or
that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings.
• Papers must be clearly submitted in English and will be selected based on their originality,
timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation.
• Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be
accepted, at least one of the authors will register and attend the conference to present the
• The use of artificial intelligence (AI)–generated text in an article shall be disclosed in the
acknowledgements section of any paper submitted to an IEEE Conference or Periodical. The
sections of the paper that use AI-generated text shall have a citation to the AI system used to
generate the text.
• All accepted papers will be included in IEEE Xplore and indexed by EI. Top quality papers
after presented in the conference will be selected for extension and publication in several
special issues of international journals, e.g., World Wide Web Journal (Springer), Web
Intelligence (IOS Press), and Social Network Analysis and Mining (Springer), Human-Centric
Intelligent Systems (Springer), Information Discovery and Delivery (Emerald Publishing).
