Tiny Transactions on Computer Science (Tiny ToCS)
Tiny ToCS seeks papers describing significant research contributions to the
field of computer science. Tiny ToCS is the premier venue for computer science
research of 140 characters or less.
WHY TINY TOCS?
Tiny ToCS is a forum for high-quality scholarly discourse
that challenges researchers to engage with their work in new
capacities. Not only does the restricted format require a concise
distillation of scholarly results, but the short format will be
more accessible to the Computer Science community at large. Tiny ToCS
favors accessible, carefully crafted, creative research, and
invites submissions both about novel ideas as well as summaries or
distillations of existing work.
We invite submissions on a wide range of computer science research, including,
but not limited to:
– Artificial Intelligence
– Computer Architecture
– Computer Networking
– Computer Systems
– Computer Security
– Databases and Data Management
– Human-Computer Interaction
– Machine Learning
– Programming Languages
– Theory of Computation
Submissions to Tiny ToCS can be up to 140 characters in length,
with an abstract of no more than 250 words and a title of no
more than 118 characters.
Alternate (video) format: Videos of up to 120 seconds may also be
submitted. Authors should be careful to maintain anonymity in the
video. The attached video description must fit within 118 characters
so that it may be tweeted alongside the video. Videos should be
submitted directly to the PC via email: Heidy Khlaaf.
The primary content of submissions should fit into 140 characters.
The abstract is not intended to expound upon your finding but instead
to provide context for your work. What is the background for your
research? Concisely, how does this work improve on related research?
Submissions which violate this requirement will be rejected without
You may use three references in your submission. References will count as one
word when used in the abstract section and three letters in the body
Your submission may not contain any non-text figures or special formatting.
Plain-text only. ASCII art okay.
Reviewing will be double-blind and serve primarily to ensure basic quality
of accepted papers. Submissions that are unverifiable or purely humorous will be
rejected; submissions that highlight nuggets in or concisely summarize existing
work are acceptable.
For inspiration, we have provided a sample submission, or refer to Tiny ToCS
