Call For Papers

IEEE CIC 2024 Call for Papers


Scope

The Internet and AI have revolutionized the globalized society and enabled the growth of infrastructures, applications, and technologies that significantly enhance global interactions and collaborations that have a significant impact on society. Unprecedented cyber-social and cyber-physical infrastructures and systems that span geographic boundaries are possible because of the Internet technologies, including 5G and beyond, and the growing number of collaboration-enabling technologies such as generative AI, large language models (LLMs), machine learning, deep learning, reinforcement learning, federated learning, and multimodal learning. Individuals and organizations have increasingly relied on electronic and/or Internet-enabled collaboration between distributed teams of humans, computer applications, and/or autonomous robots to achieve higher productivity and produce collaboratively developed products that would have been impossible to develop without the contributions of multiple collaborators.

Technology has evolved from standalone tools to open systems supporting collaboration in multi-organizational settings and from general-purpose tools to specialized collaboration platforms. Future collaboration and Internet computing solutions that further the goal of achieving the full potential of global-level collaboration require advancements in networking, technology and systems, user interfaces and interaction, cooperation and collaboration paradigms, and interoperation with application-specific components and tools.

IEEE CIC has been conceived as the key multidisciplinary venue to serve as a premier international forum for discussion among academic and industrial researchers, practitioners, and students interested in Internet technologies, applications and services, collaborative networking, technology and systems, and applications.

Round 2 Submission Dates

Submissions Deadline July 29, 2024
Acceptance Notification August 30, 2024


Blue Sky/Vision Track

We would like to solicit papers that promote visionary ideas and blue sky thinking in areas aligned with the conference themes. These papers are expected to spark intense discussions and newer research directions/insights through potentially disruptive, controversial, or highly cross-disciplinary ideas that look forward to collaboration and internet computing space for the next 10 years and beyond. Ideas that are just being conceived, not fully developed, far from experimentally evaluated, or out-of-the box are highly encouraged. The papers should follow the same format as the regular conference papers and can be up to 10 pages.


Industry Track Papers

We would like to solicit papers that focus on design, implementation and deployment of solutions related to Collaboration and Internet Computing within the industrial or government environments. The papers submitted to this track are expected to advance practical and applied research focused on the use of CIC technologies, and real world CIC relevant networks, systems applications. Applications, such as: Internet enabled collaborative e-commerce, medical and pharmaceutical, defense, critical cyber-physical infrastructures, public policy, finance, engineering, environment, manufacturing, telecommunications, and government.

The Industry/Government Track will include papers selected through a separate program committee. Authors must clearly indicate sub-areas their papers are to be evaluated in because distinct criteria may be used for reviewing different category of submissions:

• Deployed
Deployed systems that aim to provide real practical value to industry, Government, or other organizations, or communities. The papers should point out how the deployed system explicitly leverage CIC technologies or describe either qualitatively (lessons learnt, deployment experiences, etc.) or quantitatively the effect of use of CIC relevant technology in operational environments.

• Emerging
Newer applications that use collaboration and internet computing as central themes are expected here. The authors should clearly demonstrate value and interest to Industry, Government of society (e.g., scientific or medical professions; critical infrastructures). Papers that describe infrastructure development and deployment that enables the large-scale deployment of CIC technologies or their validation are also in these areas.


Awards

IEEE CIC will feature a Best Paper award and a Best Student Paper award (to be selected by the program committee/best paper award team). A paper is eligible for the Best Student Paper award if the first author is a full-time student at the time of submission. A partial travel grant or cash award may be offered to the winner student depending on fund availability.


Paper Submission

• Research Track Paper Submission
We invite original research papers that have not been previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Papers submitted to Research track should be up to 10 pages in the standard two column IEEE proceedings format, which can be found at IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings. The papers should be submitted at the research track of the conference in EasyChair.

• Vision Track Paper Submission
We invite original research vision papers that have not been previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. Vision contributions should focus on blue-sky ideas and research vision in the area that at least one of the lead senior authors are known for. Vision paper can be as short as 2 pages but should be no longer than 10 pages in the standard two column IEEE proceedings format, which can be found at IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings. The papers should be submitted at the vision track of the conference in EasyChair.

• Industry/Government Paper Submission
We invite original industry papers that have not been previously published and are not currently under review for publication elsewhere. At least one co-author must be affiliated with industry or Government organizations, such as labs in DoE, DoD, NIH, NSA Labs. Papers submitted to Regular or Industry/Gov track should be no longer than 10 pages in the standard two column IEEE proceedings format, IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings . The papers should be submitted at the industry/gov track of the conference in EasyChair.


Workshops Proposals

Proposals for full and half-day tutorials are solicited. Tutorials are intended to enhance the technical program, and as such they should be relevant to collaborative computing, networking, internet technologies, worksharing, and applications.


Panels Proposals

Proposals for panel discussions that focus on future visions relevant to Collaboration and Internet Computing are preferred. Potential panel organizers should submit a panel proposal of at most three pages, including biographical sketches of the proposed panelists and questions to be asked to the ​Executive Chairs.


Tutorials Proposals

Proposals for full and half-day tutorials are solicited. Tutorials are intended to enhance the technical program, and as such they should be relevant to collaborative computing, networking, internet technologies, worksharing, and applications. Potential tutorial presenters should submit a tutorial proposal of at most three pages, including: description of potential audience and background knowledge expected from the audience, if any; tutorial description; biographical sketch(s) of presenter(s).


Review Policy

IEEE Policy and professional ethics require that referees treat the contents of papers under review as privileged information not to be disclosed to others before publication. It is expected that no one with access to a paper under review will make any inappropriate use of the special knowledge, which that access provides. Contents of abstracts submitted to conference program committees should be regarded as privileged as well, and handled in the same manner. The Conference Publications Chair shall ensure that referees adhere to this practice.

Organizers of IEEE conferences are expected to provide an appropriate forum for the oral presentation and discussion of all accepted papers. An author, in offering a paper for presentation at an IEEE conference, or accepting an invitation to present a paper, is expected to be present at the meeting to deliver the paper. In the event that circumstances unknown at the time of submission of a paper preclude its presentation by an author, the program chair should be informed on time, and appropriate substitute arrangements should be made. In some cases it may help reduce no-shows for the Conference to require advance registration together with the submission of the final manuscript.
