Papers and Workshops

Authors who submitted extended abstracts should submit their full paper through their My Page after logging into the portal. Please do not set up a second record for the same paper.

Authors who missed the extended abstract deadline and wish to submit a full paper for review and consideration for inclusion in the Proceedings and Programme can now submit a full paper up to 30 June 2015.

Papers are actively encouraged from private as well as national, regional, international and European Commission funded research programmes. The conference language is English and abstracts should be for case studies, technical, legal or policy papers or proposals to arrange workshops. Proposals related to Entrepreneurship and Innovation, international cooperation, interoperability issues, multi-disciplinary research, eInfrastructures, Smart and Virtual Organisations and papers showcasing commercialisation issues are particularly welcome.

eChallenges e-2014 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE Lithuania and IEEE UK and Ireland Social Implications of Technology Chapter. Final papers accepted for inclusion in the Proceedings (following updates as a result of the blind peer review) and physically presented during the event will also be submitted to IEEE Xplore for publication. Each presenter will present one paper in the Programme.

Full Papers - Deadline 30 June

Full papers should be 8 - 9 pages in length using the eChallenges paper template. Papers should focus on a research topic on which a case study, initial or final results can be published. All papers must highlight the level of innovation. General project descriptions are not appropriate.

All draft papers are double blind peer reviewed. Please add co-author details within the online submission form but ensure that no author details are included within the Word document uploaded.

In the case of joint authors, the Conference Organisers will only communicate with the person who uploads the abstract, who is assumed to be the presenter unless we are informed otherwise. Potential authors can submit more than one abstract, but normally an author will not be invited to present more than one paper at the conference, with co-authors expected to register and present other successful submissions.
