Camera-ready instructions

We are now in the process of preparing the proceedings (CEUR); we will send you a separate email regarding the coming conference, detailed program, and organisation.

1- With regard to your camera-ready paper, in addition to taking the reviewers’ comments into account, please follow the following instructions:

  1.a Use the CEUR latex format (one column) which can be downloaded from

  1.b Consider the corresponding format variant:

     – A regular paper has at least 10 “standard” pages (1 standard page = 2500 characters) and an appropriate number of references.

     – A short paper (and demo paper) is still a paper with references but has between 5-9 “standard” pages.

     – However, as the length in ACM format does not always match the length in CEUR format. We have removed the page limit for papers in CEUR camera ready format, as long as the original content of the paper is not modified. Interpretation: you should not modify an accepted paper, adding things that have not been reviewed for example.

     – In order to respect CEUR’s copyright rules, the extended abstracts will be published  as an abstract provided it has an appropriate title (distinct from the original paper title and including the keyword “abstract”), and permission from the copyright holder. An abstract is a paper with a title, author and abstract but without a body and without references. Such abstracts  should use a title that includes the word “abstract” or “extended abstract” like in “The Future of Data Mining – Abstract”. Interpretation: you can keep the initial title, add the term “abstract” to it and republish the abstract. If you own the copyright, you can republish other parts. You have re-written substantially the content, that works as well. According to CEUR rules, you should not include sections in it.

  1.c Use the emphasizing capitalized style for the title (e.g. “Filling an Author Agreement by Autocompletion”)

  1.d Non-Latin author names must be transliterated into Latin. If an author already has an entry in a widely known publication database such as DBLP, it is strongly preferred to use the same transliteration that is also used there.

  1.e The PDFs must contain a footnote on the first page that designates the paper as being published under the CC BY 4.0 license. The text shall be like

   “Copyright © 2022 for this paper by its authors. Use permitted under Creative Commons License Attribution 4.0 International (CC BY 4.0).”

More details about the CEUR format are available at

2- We also need the copyright documents to be signed. Please use the appropriate one document. You can download these documents from:

  AUTHOR-AGREEMENT (NTP): The paper does not include copyrighted third party material (or accompanying sources, datasets).

  AUTHOR-AGREEMENT (TP): You shall use this form if the paper includes copyrighted third party material or accompanying material. You must then also attach a copy of the permission by the third party to use this material in the signed author agreement!

Please be informed that in order to complete the copyright documents you must enter as event:

CIRCLE (Joint Conference of the Information Retrieval Communities in Europe) 2022

and as editors:

Lynda Tamine, Enrique Amigó and Josiane Mothe

Please send the pdf version of the signed and completed document at  (rename the file as Author-Agreement-PaperX.pdf where X is the easychair paper identifier).
