Submission details

CompSys-2023 invites you to submit two types of contributions: research papers and work-in-progress papers.

Submission Portal

Long papers

Research papers on your best research results from the past year(s). This includes papers already submitted to and/or accepted at (inter)national conferences or workshops (please indicate the original venue on the submission form).

Long papers (not exceeding 12 pages in double-column or 15 pages in LNCS format) can be submitted using any of the commonly used templates (e.g., ACM, IEEE, LNCS).

Short papers: Work-in-progress and early ideas

Since CompSys is a forum that encourages discussions about early and exciting ideas, we specifically welcome extended abstracts highlighting early ideas and work-in-progress papers. Such submissions are especially suitable for graduate and undergraduate students working towards finalizing their thesis or PhD students who have recently started or would like to share one of their preliminary results with the community.

In particular, we encourage contributions in the form of short talks to share an early and not yet explored idea with the community to stimulate discussions and collect feedback. These talks might be particularly interesting for early-stage researchers.

Submissions of early ideas or work-in-progress papers require a short paper of at most 2 pages (not including references) in IEEE double-column format. The paper should mention the research question being addressed, outline the novelty and/or originality of the idea, approach, or (initial) results, and contain a summary of preliminary results.

Negative research results

Being inspired by a new series of initiatives such as Perfail to also make discussing and sharing negative research results or serious research attempts which did not lead to expected results a regular part of performing research to let the research committee learns from each other's failure and together be more successful, for the first time in CompSys series, we also solicit contributions sharing negative results, wrong methodologies, and/or invalidated hypothesis.

Submissions of negative research results papers require a short paper of at most 2 pages (not including references) in IEEE double-column format.

No copyright: To foster the broadest possible engagement and exchange ideas, CompSys-2023 does not claim copyright, making it possible for you to present work that has already been published or is in the process of publishing elsewhere.

Three types of contributions can be submitted online via the EasyChair conference submission system at For submission, the PDF format is mandatory.

All contributions will be reviewed by the Program Committee. Accepted contributions will appear in the final program either as a short talk or a full presentation, depending on the reviews.

All presentations will be made available in digital format, unless otherwise instructed by the authors.

Outstanding contributions

The best three contributors (authors of a paper, idea, and/or presentation) at CompSys 2023 will be presented with an "Outstanding contribution" award in the final session of the conference.
