Call for Papers

Call for Papers/Appel à Communications


The CCCE 2018 Call for Papers is available for consultation below in both French and English. You can also download it.

Papers are accepted in both official languages of Canada (French and English). However, for the benefit of all participants, one common denominator must be used and *all* papers, either accepted for oral or poster sessions must be presented in English.

For proceeding publication purposes, papers presented in French must nonetheless include an abstract in English clearly stating that the paper is written in French.


L'appel à communications CCECE 2018 est maintenant disponible pour consultation ici-bas. Vous pouvez aussi le télécharger.

Les communications peuvent être soumises dans l'une ou l'autre des deux langues officielles du Canada (français et anglais). Notez toutefois que pour favoriser les échanges entre les participants, les présentations, tant orales que par poster, devront obligatoirement être faites en anglais.

De plus, pour des liées à la publication des actes du congrès, les communications soumises en français devront inclure un résumé en anglais identifiant clairement que le reste de l'article est en français.

Call for Special Sessions & Tutorials ‒ By Thursday, November 30, 2017

Call for Special Sessions

The CCECE 2018 Call for Special Sessions is available for consultation below. You can also download it.

Proposals are invited that can extend the areas of interest of the conference or highlight specific hot topics within these areas. In keeping with the conference theme of Innovation for a Better World, each special session is encouraged to contain one overview paper that addresses the impact of the topic in the special session on humanity, society, and/or the environment.


Prospective organizers of Special Sessions should submit proposals via e-mail in a single PDF file to no lather than Thursday, November 30, 2017. Notifications of acceptance will be issued by Sunday, December 10, 2017. Note that organizers should not contribute more than one paper in their session. Please include the following information:

  • Title;
  • Motivation, indicating the novelty of the topic, any possible interdisciplinary flavor and links with the conference theme of Innovation for a Better World;
  • Short biography of the organizers;
  • List of six (6) contributed papers, including titles, authors, contact information of the corresponding author, and a short abstract of each contribution.

Evaluation Criteria

Proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness of the topic and on the qualifications of the organizers and of the authors of the contributed papers as well.

Review Process

The papers in each accepted Special Session will undergo a review process similar to the other regular papers. It is the responsibility of the organizers to ensure that their Special Session papers meet CCECE quality standards. In case a paper submitted in a Special Session does not meet the expected quality, it will be rejected and an effort will be made to draw papers from the regular papers pool to fill in the gap. If too many papers for a given Special Session are not accepted and we are unable to find suitable substitutes from the regular review pool, the session may be canceled.
