Call for Papers

Call for Papers 

Audio Mostly 2024 encourages the submission of contributions addressing the conference theme and topics. 

Submitted papers should provide a scientific contribution by reporting novel research methods and results (original research paper), summarizing the current state-of-the-art on a topic (review paper), presenting an opinion about specific issues (position paper), or presenting practical situations in real-world contexts that can contribute to existing knowledge of the field (case-study paper). 

Important dates: https://audiomostly.com/2024/info/important-dates/  

Authors' instructions: https://audiomostly.com/2024/call/instructions/  

Submission portal: Microsoft CMT - https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/AM2024/


Length and Formatting 

We let authors choose the most appropriate length for their contribution amongst two formats: 

  • Short papers (max 4000 words, typically poster or demo presentation) should report novel work in progress or research that is best communicated in an interactive format; 
  • Long papers (max 10000 words, typically oral in-person or remote presentation) should present a substantial contribution to the research field. 

The word limit includes all tables, acknowledgments, and appendices. References are not counted. 

The length of the abstract should be 150-200 words. 


Peer review 

All submissions will be fully peer-reviewed. The review process is double-blind with each submission receiving three reviews. Please submit completely anonymized drafts. Please do not include any identifying information, and refrain from citing authors' own prior work in anything other than the third person. 



All papers must be created according to ACM templates available for both Word and LaTex: https://authors.acm.org/proceedings/production-information

We highlight that, in previous AM editions, the submission was made in a two-column format; but the new ACM authoring system advises using the single-column format.


Supplementary materials 

We encourage authors to attach additional supplementary materials such as audio/video examples, data sets, or measurements. For review, you can include anonymized links to cloud services or similar. For the camera-ready version, any such temporary links must be replaced by persistent links with handle/DOI or similar. Alternatively, you can upload supplementary material with your submission. 



Please note that at least one of the paper authors has to register and attend the conference, in presence or remotely, in order for the paper to be presented and included in the proceedings (see registration information). 


Presentation format 

Upon paper submission, authors will have the possibility to give their preferences for oral, poster, or demo presentations, as well as for in-person or remote attendance. The final presentation mode will be based on the review process and program constraints and will be communicated to the authors upon acceptance. 

You have the possibility to hand in a paper with an accompanying demo that is presented in addition to a talk or poster. In this case, you have to submit the required supplementary data as described in the call for demos.
