Call for Papers

General Information

The ACM Southeast (ACMSE) conference is the oldest, continuously running, annual conference of the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). ACMSE provides an excellent forum for students, faculty, researchers, and industry practitioners to present their research in a friendly and dynamic atmosphere in all areas of computer science.

ACMSE 2022 is organized by the Mathematical, Computing, & Information Sciences Department (MCIS Department) at Jacksonville State University (JSU), Jacksonville, Alabama. It will be held on April 18-20, 2022, as a virtual conference at a discounted price.

The final program will be rich in events, including paper presentations, poster presentations (see Call for Posters), tutorials/workshops (see Call for Tutorials/Workshops), keynote speeches, and industrial practitioner displays. You can download the Call for Papers/Tutorials/Workshops/Posters in PDF format from this link.

Call for Papers
Students, faculty, researchers, and scientists are invited to submit high-quality original technical manuscripts to ACMSE 2022. Three tracks are available: full papers, short papers, and abstracts. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere. The peer-review process will be “double-blind” where manuscripts shall be submitted, lacking author(s) names and affiliations. All accepted and presented articles at ACMSE 2022 will be published in the conference proceedings and the ACM Digital Library (ISBN: 978-1-4503-8697-5). At least one author of every accepted manuscript must register to attend the conference and present his/her article. Failure to do so will result in exclusion from the conference proceedings and the ACM Digital Library.

Full Papers: From 6 to 8 single-spaced pages in length. An acceptance rate of approximately 35% is anticipated for the Full Paper category. Awards for the best full papers will be presented. Accepted and presented full papers will be published in the proceedings and the ACM Digital Library.

Short Papers: From 4 to 5 single-spaced pages in length. The acceptance rate is targeted at 45% for this category. Awards for the best short papers will be presented. Accepted and presented short papers will be published in the proceedings and the ACM Digital Library.

Abstracts: From 2 to 3 single-spaced pages in length. The Fast Abstract symposium seeks to bring together students, faculty, and researchers working in computer software and applications, and related fields. A fast abstract is a lightly reviewed article that may be presenting new ideas, work in progress, or opinions that address any issue relevant to computer software and applications. We also welcome contributions that may have thought-provoking ideas based on theory, application, or development experience, and may have initial or proof of concept results. The presenter will have the opportunity to discuss his/her research idea, methodology, and results with other peer researchers and receive useful guidance and feedback towards the completion of the research. The acceptance rate target is 55%. Awards for the best abstract will be presented. Accepted and presented abstracts will be published in the proceedings and the ACM Digital Library.

ACMSE 2022 invites prospective authors to submit their original technical work with significant research contributions on any aspects of computer science, information systems, and information technology. Both experimental results, as well as formal investigations, are equally welcome.

Authors submitting manuscripts for peer-review to the ACMSE Conference consent to the following policies:

  • That the work submitted is original, that the listed authors are the creators of the work, that each author is aware of the submission and that they are listed as an author, and that the paper is an honest representation of the underlying work
  • That the work submitted is not currently under review at any other publication venue, and that it will not be submitted to another venue unless it is rejected from this venue
  • That the submitting authors have the rights and intent to publish the work in this venue, if the work is accepted
  • That any prior publications on which this work is based are documented appropriately in the manuscript and/or in a cover letter available to reviewers. This documentation includes providing an explanation of the new contribution that extends prior published results.


Submission Link
To submit a manuscript for evaluation at ACMSE 2022, use the EasyChair system. Remember that the process of evaluation is “double-blind”, and submitted manuscripts shall lack author(s) names and affiliations. You will be asked to select a track/category during the submission (full papers, short papers, or abstracts). Be sure you submit your manuscript to the right track. Submitted articles should be well formatted and use proper English grammar and punctuation.

Manuscript Format
Manuscripts (.PDF format) must follow the mandatory template provided by the ACMSE 2022 conference. You can read the instructions and find the LaTeX template in this link.
