Interactive Articles Competition



The aim of the competition is to promote and explore new means of scientific publications. Therefore, we like to ask authors to prepare an interactive script similar to the ones highlighted on (not associated with IEEE) or other interactive webpages (see example section below). Articles should specifically target a scientific audience and cover IEEE SSCI related topics. Therefore, the articles should be related to any topic listed in the call for papers and corresponds to a paper submitted to IEEE SSCI, while the latter is not a formal requirement.

Interactive elements provide a great chance of presenting complex algorithms and visualize their steps or results. Included interactive elements should complement the overall explanation of the paper and result in a more engaging experience. The article should be informative and well presented.

Submission Instructions

To ensure the correct presentation of the interactive content, we ask authors to host the interactive article on a publicly accessible website, e.g. via Github pages. For submission, please sent the names and affiliations of the authors as well as the link at which the article can be accessed to until the 21st of November.

To enter the competition at least one author of the article must be registered for the conference.

Ranking Criteria

All submitted articles will be reviewed by a panel that consists of members of the IEEE CIS Education committee and its sub-committees but may also include invited experts on the topics featured in the article. Submitted articles will be ranked based on the following criteria:

  • Originality
  • Interactivity
  • Engagingness
  • Scientific Accuracy

Best ranked entries will be eligible for a price of 500$/300$/200$ for the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd rank, respectively, which is sponsored by the IEEE CIS Education committee. The results of the competition will be announced at SSCI 2021.
