The term of the current Editor-in-Chief (EiC) of the ACM Transactions on Intelligent Systems & Technology (TIST) is coming to an end, and the ACM Publications Board has set up a nominating committee to assist the Board in selecting the next EiC. TIST was established in 2010 and has been experiencing steady growth, with 355 submissions received in 2020.
Nominations, including self nominations, are invited for a three-year term as TIST EiC, beginning on July 1, 2021. The EiC appointment may be renewed at most one time. This is an entirely voluntary position, but ACM will provide appropriate administrative support.
Appointed by the ACM Publications Board, Editors-in-Chief (EiCs) of ACM journals are delegated full responsibility for the editorial management of the journal consistent with the journal's charter and general ACM policies. The Board relies on EiCs to ensure that the content of the journal is of high quality and that the editorial review process is both timely and fair. He/she has final say on acceptance of papers, size of the Editorial Board, and appointment of Associate Editors. A complete list of responsibilities is found in the ACM Volunteer Editors Position Descriptions. Additional information can be found in the following documents:
The 21st ACM Symposium on Document Engineering (DocEng 2021) seeks original research papers that focus on the design, implementation, development, management, use and evaluation of advanced systems where document and document collections play a key role. DocEng emphasizes innovative approaches to document engineering technology, use of documents and document collections in real world applications, novel principles, tools and processes that improve our ability to create, manage, maintain, share, and productively use these. In particular, DocEng 2021 seeks contributions in the area of collaborative work with documents. You are invited to submit original papers to DocEng 2021, to be held in Limerick, Ireland. Attendees at this international forum have interests that span all aspects of document engineering and applications.

Accepted articles will be published in the DocEng 2021 proceedings in the ACM Digital Library. The program committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its general accessibility to the DocEng audience. Papers will be judged on significance, originality, and clarity. The paper must be organized so that it is easily understood by an audience with varied expertise. The paper should clearly identify what has been accomplished, why it is significant, and how it relates to previous work.
Submissions should be prepared using the ACM format. Guidelines are availables at https://www.acm.org/publications/proceedings-template
Papers can be submitted online at: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=doceng2021
DocEng is a single-track conference attended by a community of academic and industrial researchers. It will be preceded by one day of workshops and tutorials. Relevant Topics We seek original contributions that are mainly focused on, but not necessarily limited to, the following topics:
* Pure document image or document content analysis papers are not out of scope but authors should clarify how the contribution relates to document engineering technology, use of documents or document collections
WSDM (pronounced "wisdom") is one of the premier conferences on web-inspired research involving search and data mining. Our original plan was to meet at Jerusalem, Israel, however, given the circumstances of the COVID19 pandemic, the conference will be held virtually, between March 8-12, 2021. We would like to invite you to join this exciting event. Please register through the conference web-site.
Deadline for early registration: Feb. 10, 2021
The highlights of the WSDM 2021 program are summarized as below.
Prof. Yoav Shoham (Stanford and AI21 Labs): Some thoughts on Computational Natural Language in the 21st century
Prof. Sue Dumais (MS Research): Beyond Web Search: How Email Search is Different and Why it Matters
Prof Eran Segal (Weizmann Ins.): Harnessing Big Data for Personalized Medicine
The regular registration package includes all the technical presentations (keynotes, paper presentations, posters, tutorials, workshops, industry-day, doctoral consortium).
The 13th International ACM Conference on Web Science in 2021 (WebSci’21) is an interdisciplinary conference where a multitude of research disciplines converge with the purpose of creating a greater insight into a complex global Web than the sum of their individual parts. We invite participation from diverse fields including computer and information sciences, communication, economics, informatics, law, linguistics, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology.

Contributions may be analytical, conceptual, creative, critical, predictive, theoretical (or all of the above) and should aim, wherever possible, to cross traditional disciplinary boundaries. The conference provides a platform to a range of practitioners from Ph.D. students to experienced researchers and ideas ranging from early work through projects as well as final analysis and completed publishable work. We look to evaluate and value the impact of the Web Science approach, its current theoretical, methodological, and epistemological challenges as well as Web practices of individuals, collectives, institutions, and platforms.
Building on our theme for 2021, we especially welcome contributions that:
Please upload your submissions via EasyChair. The ACM Web Science Conference will run as an online conference, where authors will present their work remotely to online participants. There is one format for submission. All contributors will submit an abstract (max 400 words) followed by a full paper of between 6 and 10 pages (inclusive of references, appendices, etc.). The authors shall adopt the current ACM SIG Conference proceedings template (acmart.cls). Please submit papers as PDF files using the ACM template, either in Microsoft Word format or with the ACM LaTeX template on Overleaf (ACM Conference Proceedings “Master” Template). All contributions will be judged by the Program Committee upon rigorous peer review standards for quality and fit to the conference, by at least three referees. We will adopt a single-blind review process. Do not anonymize your submissions. Submissions without authorship information will be desk-rejected without review. For authors who wish to opt-out of publication proceedings, this option will be made available upon acceptance. This will encourage the participation of researchers from the social sciences that prefer to publish their work as journal articles. All authors of accepted papers (including those who opt out of proceedings) are expected to present their work (virtually) at the conference. In 2020, the Web Science conference registration costs were kept low, and the intention is to continue this for Web Science 2021.
The Hypertext and Social Media community is invited to contribute to the ACM Conference on Hypertext and Social Media 2021. The detailed call can be found here: ht.acm.org/ht2021/cfp/
At ACMHT 2021, we aim to further discuss, reflect, investigate and look forward on all of these developments, from the mixed perspectives of technology, users and society.
There will be 5 conference main tracks about (Submission Deadline 14 May 2021)
