Submission Procedure

Format: The papers submitted for review must be in the IEEE format (8.5" x 11", two-column) and should not exceed 6 pages or more (see below) in this format. Please strictly follow the formatting instructions (read the instructions in PDF, DOC, HTML, LaTeX, PS) and layout instructions (read the instructions in PDF, DOC, PS; borrowed from the IEEE CS Author Forms page). Please also take into account the advice here.

Due to numerous requests, we allow papers longer than the 6 page limit, with a tiny charge of US$15 per additional page over the 6 page limit. If your paper is longer than 9 pages, please ask for our permission. You can extend your paper in the camera-ready version if such extension is necessary to address the reviewers' comments. However, under no circumstances are you allowed to reduce your paper after it has been reviewed.

Double blind review: The submissions must not contain the names of the authors or their affiliations, as well as must not contain any information that may reveal the identity of the authors. Submissions not meeting this requirement may be rejected without review.

Submission procedure: We accept only electronic submissions, in PDF format. To submit a paper, use the


Please register a as a new user in the system. You will be sent a username and password by email, which you will be able to change later using "My Account" page. The submission is done in two stages: (1) It is recommended that you now register the information on your paper, including the authors, title, and abstract. The text of the paper is not required at this stage. This information can be changed later. (2) You should upload the full text of the paper, in PDF format, before July 7 (contact us for late submissions). This PDF file must not contain the names of the authors, but those names should be specified via the webpage (apart from the PDF file) when the paper is registered; the reviewers will not have access to this information but only to the PDF file. No updates of already uploaded PDF files are possible after July 7.


Registration fee is as follows. Note that one author registration fee only includes publication of one paper. For each published paper, a separate fee must be received before the camera-ready deadline. Payment method: via the web system.
