GECON 2022 follows the very successful previous editions of GECON conferences, in which high-quality technical papers have been presented and published in different outlets. As in the previous conferences,


At GECON 2022, we will give out four awards:

  • Best Paper award for the best full paper
  • Best Student Paper award for the best paper, in which the first author is a student
  • Best Poster award for the best poster presented at GECON 2021.

Full Papers

Original full papers present completed research that is original and contains new ideas or methodologies. The paper illustrates results that demonstrate the performance of the research.

Short Papers (Work-in-Progress Papers)

Original work-in-progress (WIP) papers present research that addresses a challenging research question but does not necessarily contain a completed analysis.

New ideas Papers 

New-idea papers provide a unique opportunity for PhD students and young researchers to present their new ideas, and senior  researchers to present their starting activities, current progress, or novel approaches of their works. New ideas papers will be included in the poster sessions.


After the success of the last GECON conference, GECON will include a poster session.  In addition to new ideas papers, to improve work exposure and human interactions between the participants, any accepted full paper and any short paper (work-in-progress paper) is also entitled and encouraged to present a poster.

Special Topic Sessions

Special sessions are organized by two session organizers. The session organizers propose a complete session of 1.5 hours that consists of four presentations on a particular topic. The session chair promotes the session and will ensure the quality of accepted works. Papers, on which the special session presentation is based, can be included in the LNCS proceedings. A joined paper of the session presenters is also possible.

Tutorial proposals should provide a title, an abstract, and a table of content.
