Special Issue Information for Authors

A special issue of the Jounal Computational and Mathematical Organization Theory

All submissions and queries to:  hales (at) cs.unibo.it

Important dates / expected timetable:
  • 11/09/06 - Extended abstract submission deadline (2 pages, 12pt font, including references)
  • 18/09/06 - Notification by Organising Committee of suitability for full paper submission
  • 30/10/06, 06/11/06 - Extended full paper submission deadline. Note that submissions should be emailed directly to hales (at) cs.unibo.it. Do not use the CMOT online submissions system.
  • 19/01/07, 19/02/07, 26/02/07 - Notification of acceptance including referee reports
  • 28/02/07, 30/04/07, 15/05/07 - Revised manuscripts deadline
  • Currently the revised manuscripts are being checked by reviewers and editors to ensure they have been adequately revised. Also formatting and layout will be checked. Authors may be contacted to make further revisions.
  • Late 2007 - Publication. This is still our aim but due to delays this may fall early 2008.

Revision of manuscripts
  • It is vital that you fully address the issues raised by the reviewers and revise your manuscript.
  • You should submit, with your revised article, a cover note that lists point-by-point the changes you have made to address the reviewers’ comments.
  • Note that conditional acceptance implies that failure to fully address the requested revisions may lead to rejection.
Contribution Information
  • Papers will be fully reviewed - presentation at the workshop does not guarantee acceptance.
  • We ask for an extended abstract first so we can advise on the suitability of a proposed contribution.
  • Contributions should be original and not published in, or submitted to, another journal
  • Work published in conference proceedings is acceptable if it is suitably updated and revised
  • Contributions may vary from presentation theme but the emphasis should be within the workshop theme.
  • We encourage you to reflect the discussions and connections between different areas made at the workshop in your contribution.
Content Style Guide (note, this will be checked before review)

Maximum number of A4 pages is 25 at 1.5 line spacing in 12 point font with reasonable margins including figures and refs. Further formatting details at: CMOT instructions for authors).

Papers should have strong literature sections and contrast their models with others. Simulation papers should describe the simulations in the form of a "virtual experiment".  Include a table showing which variables were varied, what values they took and the the number of replications performed. e.g., if the population size was set to 100 and 200 and experiments were performed with two different kinds of agent, then that is a 2x2 table design and the number of replications is placed in each cell (note if it is not a deterministic model it should be at least 10 times per cell and probably closer to 25).
