Submission Guidelines

  • Submissions of technical papers must describe original research, not published or currently under review at other workshops, conferences, journals, or magazines. Industry abstracts should meaningfully and effectively highlight the distinguishing features and value of the technology and/or platform being presented.
  • All submissions will be reviewed by the program committee members for novelty and originality of the contribution. The conference accepts full and short papers. Paper submission will be handled electronically. Authors should prepare a PDF version of their papers. The page limit for full papers is 8 pages, and that for short papers is 5 pages in standard MRP paper format. In addition, position papers with 2-page extended abstracts (in standard MRP paper format) can be submitted for fast dissemination of interesting intermediate results of ongoing research, practices or findings.
