SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

Contributions to the conference have to be submitted via Easychair
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ic2s2), the name of the event
there is IC2S2.
Each submission consists of an extended abstract of max 2 pages.
Please give a sufficiently detailed description of your work, put at
least one figure, otherwise it will be difficult for the PC to assess
its relevance. Short, paper-like abstracts will not be considered.
Abstracts do not need to refer to unpublished work. If the work is
published or under submission elsewhere it is fine. We want to give to
everyone the opportunity to present the most relevant work to the
topics of the conference. There will be no proceedings, but we are
going to have a special issue in EPJ Data Science
(http://www.epjdatascience.com/), where selected contributions will be
published. Authors of those contributions would be invited to submit
full papers after the conference. Each extended abstract will be
reviewed by two PC members. Abstracts can be submitted from September
the 15th till December 7th, 2014. We will do out best to have mostly
oral presentations of the selected contributions, both plenary and in
parallel sessions. However, we are probably going to have a poster
session as well. During the submission process, you will be asked to
specify whether your contribution is intended for a) Plenary session
presentation, b) Parallel session presentation or c) Poster session
presentation. The final allocation of each contribution will be
decided by the Program Committee.
