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 ******* conference format. In addition, position papers with 2-page extended abstracts (in standard *****conference format) can be submitted for fast dissemination of interesting intermediate results of ongoing research, practices or findings.
