All papers must be original and may not be published, submitted, and/or currently under review elsewhere. Each submission will be peerreviewed in a double-blind manner.

Short papers:

3-6 pages (single-column), excluding references

Full papers:

7-12 pages (single-column), excluding references


Long papers should present original reports of substantive new research techniques, findings, and applications. They should place the work within the field and clearly indicate its innovative aspects. Research procedures and technical methods should be presented in sufficient detail to ensure scrutiny and reproducibility. Results should be clearly communicated and implications of the contributions/findings should be explicitly discussed.

Short papers should present original and highly promising research or applications. Merit will be assessed in terms of originality and importance rather than maturity, extensive technical validation, and user studies. Separation of long and short papers will be strictly enforced so papers will not compete across categories, but only within each category.

Papers must be formatted as a single-column manuscript according to the new workflow for ACM publications. The templates and instructions are available here:

Available templates include:


Papers will be submitted through EasyChair through this link: . After you start a new submission, make sure to select “Challenges in Online Social Networks” as the track.

  • OASIS’22 uses a double blind review process
  • Authors must omit their names and affiliations from submissions, and avoid obvious identifying statements. For instance, citations to the authors’ own prior work should be made in the third person.


Accepted papers will require further revision in order to meet the requirements and page limits of the camera-ready format required by ACM. Instructions for the preparation of the camera-ready versions of the papers will be provided after acceptance.

All accepted papers will be published by ACM and will be available via the ACM Digital Library. To be included in the Proceedings, at least one author of each accepted paper MUST register for the conference and present the paper there.
