Paper Submission

Review Process

Papers submitted for review must clearly state:

  • the purpose of the work;
  • how and to what extent it advances the art;
  • specific new results and their impact.

The degree to which the paper deals with these issues will affect whether the paper is selected. The most frequent cause of rejection of submitted papers is a lack of new results. Only work that has not been previously published at the time of the conference will be considered. Submission of a paper for review and subsequent acceptance is considered as an agreement that the work will not be placed in the public domain prior to the conference.
