Research ResultsModularity 2016
Modularity 2016 invites papers for its Research Results and Modularity Visions tracks presenting compelling insights into modularity in information systems, including its nature, forms, mechanisms, consequences, limits, costs, and benefits.
Call for Papers
Modularity 2016 invites papers for its Research Results track presenting new research and compelling insights into modularity in information systems, including its nature, forms, mechanisms, consequences, limits, costs, and benefits.
Proceedings will appear in the ACM Digital Library.
All submissions are peer reviewed in accordance with the highest established standards of scientific rigor. Reviewers assess works in terms of research problem formulations, novelty and sophistication of proposed solutions, clarity and significance of contributions, and correct characterization of work in relation to existing knowledge.
Papers submitted to the Research Results track should present research results supported by proper design and execution of experimental or analytical assessments and sound interpretation of data.
Submissions, Selection Process, and Proceedings
Submissions should not have been published previously nor under review at other events. Research papers should describe work that advances the current state of the art. Experience papers should be of broad interest and should describe insights gained from substantive practical applications. The program committee will evaluate each contributed paper based on its relevance, significance, clarity, length, and originality.
Papers are to be submitted electronically at http://cyberchairpro.borbala.net/modularitypapers/submit/ for Research Results in PDF format. Submissions must be in the ACM format (see http://www.sigplan.org/Resources/Author/, 10 point font) and not exceed 12 pages for regular papers and 4 pages for short papers. Short papers need to be labelled as such.
Note: In previous years, the conference had two rounds of submissions and reviews. Starting this year, Modularity 2016 will run a single-round two-phase reviewing process to help authors make their final papers the best that they can be. After the first phase, papers will be rejected, conditionally accepted, or unconditionally accepted. Conditionally accepted papers will be given a list of issues raised by reviewers. Authors must then submit a revised version of the paper with a cover letter explaining how they have or why they have not addressed these issues. The program committee will then consider the cover letter and revised paper, and recommend final acceptance or rejection. The second phase will only be used to elevate promising papers to the conference standard, not to require additional work of papers already deemed up to standard. All papers will remain under submission until the authors receive notification of acceptance or rejection.
All submitted papers are peer reviewed. Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
