Submission Instructions

Submission Instructions

SoCS accepts regular technical papers (AAAI style, 6 pages preferred, 8 pages maximum) and short research statements (AAAI style, 2 pages maximum). SoCS has informal, web-only proceedings. Submissions to SoCS may be later resubmitted to other venues without complications. Also, papers that have already appeared or been accepted at other venues are welcome as SoCS submissions. However, we ask that authors note such prior publication on their submissions and we will give preference for oral presentation at SoCS (as opposed to poster presentation) to new work.
