GECON 2022 follows the very successful previous editions of GECON conferences, in which high-quality technical papers have been presented and published in different outlets. As in the previous conferences,

  • Accepted papers will be published in the proceedings that are published by Springer LNCS, which is indexed in Scopus, Web of Science, and Compendex.
  • Extended versions of up to 10 accepted papers in the computer science field will be invited for publication in a special issue of the Elsevier Journal of Future Generation Computer Systems. The selection of papers will start right after the celebration of the 19th edition of GECON 2022, whose extended deadline is 30 June 2022. Participation in the conference is an ideal opportunity to receive feedback from the GECON community. After the invitation to participate in the special issue, a 40% different content to GECON Proceedings modified text/results is expected.
  • For papers targeting mainly business and economics aspects within the conference, a special issue of the Springer Electronic Markets Journal  with up to 5 papers is foreseen, and a special issue of the Elsevier Electronic Commerce Research and Applications with up to 5 papers is considered.


At GECON 2022, we will give out three awards:

  • Best Paper award for the best full paper
  • Best Student Paper award for the best paper, in which the first author is a student
  • Best Poster award for the best poster presented at GECON 2022.

Full Papers

Original full papers present completed research that is original and contains new ideas or methodologies. The paper illustrates results that demonstrate the performance of the research.

Short Papers (Work-in-Progress Papers)

Original work-in-progress (WIP) papers present research that addresses a challenging research question but does not necessarily contain a completed analysis.

Poster and New ideas Papers  Submission Guidelines

Posters can be submitted as an extended abstract (4 pages + 1 page poster) which should not exceed 4 pages using the Springer LNCS format describing the poster content, research, relevance and importance to the GECON community. Additionally, the submission must include a fifth page that is an A4 draft of the poster.

New-idea papers provide a unique opportunity for PhD students and young researchers to present their new ideas, and senior  researchers to present their starting activities, current progress, or novel approaches of their works. New ideas papers will be included in the poster sessions.

Authors of accepted full papers and short papers (work-in-progress papers) are also welcome to present their work  in poster sessions, giving them a higher visibility than just giving a talk.

Poster dimensionsA0 size is recommended but A1 is also acceptableLandscape.

Special Topic Sessions

Special sessions are organized by two session organizers. The session organizers propose a complete session of 1.5 hours that consists of four presentations on a particular topic. The session chair promotes the session and will ensure the quality of accepted works. Papers, on which the special session presentation is based, can be included in the LNCS proceedings. A joined paper of the session presenters is also possible.

The workshop format will be highly interactive, and is aimed at triggering discussion and facilitating the creation of new initiatives and research groups. We welcome vision papers and research reports in the form of short abstracts (up to 5 pages in the LNCS format). The submissions will be assessed by the workshop Program Committee for their relevance to the workshop topics and their potential impact in the discussion.

Accepted papers will be presented during the workshop and will be published in the workshop proceedings, as part of the GECON’22 proceedings.
