Abstract and Keywords

The abstract and the keywords form the primary source for assigning papers to reviewers. So make sure that they are a concise and complete summary of your paper with sufficient information to let someone who doesn’t read the full paper know what it is about.

Complying with double-blind review ( Long/short papers)

In a “Double-blind Review” process, authors should not know the names of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers should not know the names of the authors. Please prepare your paper in a way that preserves anonymity of the authors, namely:

  • Do not put your names under the title
  • Avoid using phrases such as “our previous work” when referring to earlier publications by the authors
  • Remove information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grant IDs)
  • Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors
If authors fail to comply with the Double-blind restrictions, we reserve the right to reject outright the paper on administrative basis. Note that the other types of the papers (technical demonstrations, doctoral symposium and special session papers) than regular papers are reviewed in “Single-blind Review” where the authors are requested to put their name under the title in the paper.

List of authors

Please ensure that you submit your paper with the full list of authors. It is not possible to add or remove authors from your paper during the review process or after acceptance.

Length of the paper

Please ensure the appropriate length of your submission, namely:

  • Long papers: 8 pages + references
  • Short papers: 4 pages + references
  • Technical demonstrations papers: 4 page limit
  • Brave new ideas papers: 8 page limit (typical around 6 pages)
  • Doctoral symposium papers: 4 page limit
  • Special session papers: 6 page limit

The specified paper lengths include all the paper information (also the acknowledgements and the bibliography sections). For any over-length submission, we reserve the right to reject it outright on administrative basis.
