Call for Papers
Tiny Transactions on Computer Science seeks papers describing significant research contributions to the field of computer science. Tiny ToCS is the premier venue for computer science research of 140 characters or less.
Why Tiny ToCS?
Tiny ToCS is a forum for high-quality scholarly discourse that challenges researchers to engage with their work in new capacities. Not only does the restricted format require a concise distillation of scholarly results, but the short format will be more accessible to the Computer Science community at large. Tiny ToCS favors accessible, carefully crafted, creative research, and invites submissions both about novel ideas as well as summaries or distillations of existing work.
We invite submissions on a wide range of computer science research, including, but not limited to:
- Artificial Intelligence
- Computer Architecture
- Computer Graphics
- Computer Networking
- Computer Security
- Crowdsourcing and Human Computation
- Databases and Data Management
- Human-Computer Interaction
- Machine Learning
- Operating Systems
- Programming Languages
- Theory of Computation
Submissions to Tiny ToCS can be up to 140 characters in length, with an abstract of no more than 250 words and a title of no more than 118 characters.
Alternate (video) format: Videos of up to 120seconds may also be submitted. Authors should be careful to maintain anonymity in the video. The attached video description must fit within 118 characters so that it may be tweeted alongside the video. Videos should be submitted directly to the Chair via email: Yuhao Zhu.
The primary content of submissions should fit into 140 characters. The abstract is not intended to expound upon your finding but instead to provide context for your work. What is the background for your research? Concisely, how does this work improve on related research? Submissions which violate this requirement will be rejected without consideration.
You may use three references in your submission. References will count as one word when used in the abstract section and three letters in the body section ("").
Your submission may not contain any non-text figures or special formatting. Plain-text only. ASCII art okay.
Reviewing will be double-blind and serve primarily to ensure basic quality of accepted papers. Submissions that are unverifiable or purely humorous will be rejected; submissions that highlight nuggets in or concisely summarize existing work are acceptable.
Submitting Papers and Logistics
If possible, please format your submission(s) using the Tiny ToCS LaTeX class file. We've provided a sample skeleton file for you. At the least, please submit in PDF format (required by our conference software). And remember, leave names and affiliations off of your PDF.
