Call for Papers
The purpose of the Consortium is to promote the betterment of computer-oriented curricula in two- and four-year colleges and universities; to improve the use of computing as an educational resource for all disciplines; to encompass regional constituencies devoted to this purpose; and to promote an international liaison among local, regional organizations also devoted to this goal. Predominantly these colleges and universities are oriented toward research and development both academy and transformation/services industry. The Consortium holds meetings in conjunction with other computer education organizations, on its own, and sponsors sessions and tracks at such meetings. The meetings of the membership are held at the Institute for Engineering and Technology, and University City, at the University of Juarez.
The way to contribute to this event is through a paper. It should be written entirely in English (Spanish is also acceptable, with certain restrictions), with title and abstract in English, and formatted according to the provided template by Springer:
- length 12–15 pages for Regular Paper
- length 6–8 pages for Short Paper
Submissions in Spanish are also possible, as long as their title and abstract are in English and Spanish. However, papers in Spanish are to be excluded from the Springer Volume and included into another one.
Each paper shall be blind peer-reviewed by at least three experts in the field for originality, significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. Articles whose authors include a member of the scientific committee undergo the review by using the double-blind review process. Papers must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere.
A peer-reviewed selection of works is to be published formally with ISSN/ISBN, and yet another one with a potential for a Springer volume. It is planned to publish a selection of the proceedings with Springer in their Communications in Computer and Information Science, CCIS, series—final approval pending.
Although the official languages are English and Spanish, the language for the Springer volume shall be English only. For those accepted works in Spanish, excluded from the Springer Volume, their title and abstract shall be both in English and in Spanish or in English only. The proceedings from our latest consortium in English and Spanish have been published on CEUR.

Paper shall be a PDF document, one-column formatted, according to the to the Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science style, available for LaTeX or for Word or Overleaf, and from 12 to 15 pages for regular papers. We strongly recommend using LaTeX or Overleaf. Please upload by this system, never by e-mail. Additionally, you can always have your ORCID identifier.
This committee uses double-blind peer review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity.
The following steps summarize the submission process.
- Use the Overleaf or LaTeX or Word LNCS template, preferably Overleaf.
- Observe the submission deadline, according to the Important Dates menu.
- Before submitting, please check the formatting checklist to prevent common mistakes that might get your submission desk rejected.
- Access the EasyChair RCCS+ 2018 system to upload papers and to check the status of your document, as easy as any other social network.
- Refer to the Frequently Asked Questions.
Besides checking your paper status through EasyChair, you'll be receiving regular emails to keep you informed on any move on your submission.
