Provocation Papers are short papers that explore controversial, risk taking or nascent ideas that have the potential to spark debate and discussion at the conference.

Track information

Submissions must be anonymised (approx. 2,000 words excluding references) using the ACM author templates (Word users should use the Submission Template, LaTeX users should use the "manuscript" document class in the Master Article Template).

Each submission will be peer reviewed by 3 expert reviewers. Submissions must be made through the conference submission system. Please see the submission guidance page for information on the changes made to the conference from previous years, the submission process, making your submission accessible, and the various rules and policies that you must agree to when making your submission.

Accepted Provocation Papers will be archived in the ACM Digital Library and authors will be given an oral presentation slot at the conference and invited to take part in a panel discussion. At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the conference.
