Submission Details

The submission will be an extended abstract in ACM format no longer than 3 pages. Your abstract should describe the problem statement, contextualization with related works / state-of-the-art, relevant technical details, a summary of major results and references.

We are soliciting two types of extended abstracts:

• Category 1: Novel and in-progress research ideas, previously unpublished.
• Category 2: A summary of your top-quality published work.

Thought provoking or controversial work, approaches, or ideas are particularly encouraged. We encourage submissions that represent early work that is not yet ready for submission to a refereed conference or journal. Student and industry submissions meeting these criteria are particularly welcome.

Submission Instructions

Please submit your extended abstracts in PDF format via Easy Chair. No email submissions will be accepted. Please use URL for submission.

• The complete submission must be no longer than three (3) pages.

• The names of authors and their affiliations should be included on the first page of the submission.

• Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. I-CARE, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits these practices and may take action against authors who have committed them. Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. If you are uncertain whether your submission meets I-CARE guidelines, please contact the program co-chair, Sriram Lakshminarasimhan sriram.ls@in.ibm.com

• Authors are free to do multiple submissions in multiple tracks.

• By submitting a paper, you agree that at least one of the authors will attend the conference to present it.

Review Process

Submitted abstracts will go through a competitive peer review process. Reviewing of extended abstract will be done by the program committee, potentially assisted by outside referees in limited cases. Papers will be selected on the basis of their originality, technical standards, clarity and relevance.


Authors of selected papers will be invited for presentation in the form of posters. The poster session provides an opportunity to present early-stage work and receive feedback from the community.


Accepted papers will be published as part of I-CARE 2016 proceedings. We are working with publishers to publish accepted papers in "Category 1". We will update this page once more information becomes available.
