ICWSM '25 | June 23th - 26th Copenaghen, Denmark

ICWSM 2025 will offer a new and experimental mentoring scheme for first-time ICWSM authors. Interested authors can submit a complete manuscript by August 1, 2024, 23:59 AoE. Qualifying manuscripts will receive written feedback from a Senior PC member by August 22 on how their manuscript can be improved. We hope that authors can incorporate the feedback and submit an improved manuscript in the regular ICWSM submission cycle by September 15, 2024.

This scheme’s goal is to support young scholars, in particular in low-and-middle-income countries, and to increase ICWSM’s appeal to scholars in adjacent communities.

Before submitting your manuscript via a web form, you will need to confirm that:

We also ask you to check whether the first author’s affiliation country qualifies as a low, lower-middle, or upper-middle income economy according to the World Bank classification. Authors from these countries will be given priority if mentoring demand exceeds mentoring capacity.

Similarly, in the submission form, we ask about prior experience with non-full-paper publications, e.g. dataset, poster or workshop publications, and about prior ICWSM attendance. Authors without any ICWSM experience will be given priority if mentoring demand exceeds mentoring capacity.

While not required, we suggest you follow the formatting guidelines for ICWSM 2024 to save the time needed later for reformatting. However, please include the author and affiliation information in the manuscript for the mentoring scheme.


  1. We have limited capacity and cannot guarantee that your manuscript will receive mentoring.
  2. Successful participation in the mentoring scheme does not guarantee your paper will be accepted for publication at ICWSM 2025. In particular, the paper, if submitted by Sep 15, 2024, will be handled by a different SPC member, who will not be informed of the paper’s mentoring history.

To participate please submit your document using this web form no later than Aug 1, 2024, 23:59 Anywhere on Earth.
