Proceedings: Procedures for Publication

The conference proceedings is published after the conference. An invitation to (an) author(s) to present a paper at the conference is based on an extended abstract or draft paper. The presentation of a paper at the conference does not automatically imply its acceptance for publication in the conference proceedings. All papers presented at the conference are refereed at or after the conference. Accepted papers are then eligible for publication in the proceedings. All papers presented and refereed as part of mini-symposia will be considered for publication in the proceedings. This will be done in liaison with the organiser(s) of the respective mini-symposium.

Instructions for preparing a publication for publication in the conference proceedings can be obtained at Author Instructions.

Review Process

The review process of the ParCo conferences is managed by the Program Committee Chair(s) and includes the following steps:

  1. Acceptance of submitted paper proposals based on an evaluation of clarity of goal, innovation and topicality. The acceptance of a proposal allows for the submission of a draft paper.
  2. Draft papers must be submitted at a specified date and are reviewed by peer reviewers. Acceptance allows for the presentation of the paper at the conference by the (an) author. It does not imply acceptance for publication in the conference proceedings.
  3. Review of papers presented at the conference. This review results in an acceptance, accept with changes or rejection for publication in the conference proceedings.
  4. Revised versions of accepted papers are finally checked in order to ensure that any requested changes were implemented by the author(s).
The aim with this multi-step process is to:
  • Allow authors to incorporate new research results obtained right up to the start of the conference in their papers. Changes and additions to draft papers can thus be made, following the comments received from reviewers.
  • Assist authors (especially students) to improve their papers based on comments received from referees following the various review steps.
Disadvantages of this approach:
  • Papers presented at the conference may be rejected for publication in the conference proceedings.
  • The publication date of the final book of proceedings is usually a few months after the conference date.

Indexing of Material Published in the Proceedings

Regarding the indexing of the papers published as part of the book the following comment was received from the publisher, IOS Press, Amsterdam:

"After a book appears online we will share the metadata of that book with the indexing services in which the book series is indexed. It depends a bit per service on how quickly they index books so it's difficult  to put a specific timeframe on it."

The present indexing services are:

ACM Guide to Computing Literature
Book Citation Index - Science*
Conference Proceedings Citation Index*
DBLP Bibliography Server

Note also that indexing is "Subject to approval after review".
