Authors’ Guidelines


ACM Ibadan-Nigeria welcomes high-quality submissions on established or emerging topics in computer science and related disciplines, including application areas and interdisciplinary studies, that define an interface between Computer Science and other disciplines.

Submitted papers must conform to the ACM publication format by using the following ACM template

Submissions can be in any of the following categories:

  • Long paper: The maximum length is 8 pages in the two-column ACM conference format.  Accepted long papers will be presented as either an oral presentation or a poster.
  • Short paper: The maximum length is 4 pages in the two-column ACM conference format. Accepted short papers will be presented as either an oral presentation or a poster.
  • Doctoral Consortium Paper: 1 to 2 pages of structured abstract of author’s ongoing PhD or MSc research project as described in

There will be a mixture of oral presentations and poster presentations at the conference. The decision of a poster or an oral presentation will be made by the program committee. Please note that the main difference between short and long papers is in the size of contributions and not in the importance of the contributions. In other words, a paper in eight pages will be expected to have more contribution than one with four pages. Rejected long papers will not be considered for acceptance as short papers, unless the reviewers unanimously believe this is the right decision. Authors are asked to carefully consider the category of each submitted paper.

Papers submitted at CoSRI 2015 must not have been published previously. A paper is considered to have been published previously if it has appeared in a peer-reviewed journal, magazine, book, or meeting proceedings that is reliably and permanently available afterward in print or electronic form to non-attendees, regardless of the language of that publication. A paper substantially similar in content to one submitted to CoSRI 2015 should not be simultaneously under consideration for another conference or workshop.


The reviewing will be double blind, so submissions should be anonymous: do not include the authors’ names, affiliations or any clearly identifiable information in the paper. It is appropriate to cite past work of the authors if these citations are treated like any other (e.g., “Smith [5] approached this problem by….”) – omit references only if it would be obviously identifying the authors. [Note: if a non-anonymous paper has already been submitted, please re-submit with the identifying information removed.]
