The JuliaCon is accepting two different kinds of submissions:
a short form extended abstract (similar to a standard JOSS paper),
a more in-depth long form paper.
A one page paper + references etc.
An extended abstract lays out in a concise fashion the methodology and use cases of the work presented at the conference. It should be at most one page of content excluding references. The format is similar to a standard JOSS paper.
A paper of about 5-10 pages + an abstract with at most 600 characters, written in plain English with no symbol nor formula + references etc.
Compared to an extended abstract, a full paper presents more of the background and context motivating the work. It compares the work to other approaches taken in the field and gives some additional insights on the conference contribution. Use cases back up the work by showing how it can be used.
On the technical side, the submission (to be submitted through this form) must be based on a git repository on GitHub. Typically, this would be the repository of your julia package or code. The paper itself should be written in LaTeX (not Markdown) and should reside in a
paper/ subfolder (potentially in a separate
paper branch) of this repository.
To simplify and unify the submission process, we provide a template repository on GitHub. Using the structure of the
paper/ subfolder of this template as a base is mandatory! In particular, it contains the following files:
. ├── paper.tex ├── ref.bib ├── paper.yml ├── header.tex ├── jlcode.sty ├── journal_dat.tex ├── juliacon.bst ├── juliacon.cls ├── logojuliacon.pdf ├── prep.rb ├── bib.tex └── bib.rb
Only the first 3 files should be edited. Modifications to others might be over-written and replaced by the template version later in the process.
All fields from
paper.yml must be filled, including:
title: the title of the paper
keywords: the list of keywords (at most 10), each put on a new entry as in the example.
authors: all authors in the order in which they are listed. Providing all authors'
ORCIDis not mandatory but advised.
affiliationsfor all authors
bibliography: the name of the BibTeX file, including the
paper/subfolder, does not contain a
paper.md. Otherwise Whedon will be confused by the existence of both
paper.md. Note that because of the absence of a
paper.mdfile the Whedon preview service shouldn't be used/won't work.
Important: The paper is built using the
latexmk -bibtex -pdf paper.tex
This will re-generate
header.tex, bib.tex, journal_dat.tex and build the final PDF. The LaTex document can be split in multiple files without problem, just keep
paper.tex your main file.
