It is important that you understand the different types of conference papers. Depending on the conference, you may be asked to submit one of the following:
- Abstract: Synopsis of your research (250 words or less)
- Extended abstract: High-level summary of your research (less than 2 pages)
- Brief or short paper: Summary of your research (less than 4 pages)
- Full paper: Complete paper describing your research in full (6-8 pages)
The conference website should provide full details on paper requirements and any applicable page limits and extra page fees. If you are unable to find details on your conference’s requirements, contact the conference organizer (also listed on the conference website).
You may also be invited to participate in the conference in other ways, such as a poster session, workshop, or student paper. Requirements for these types of contributions are typically located on the conference website.
