Submission instructions

Papers must be written in English and formatted according to the IEEE two-column template. Author instructions, style files and copyright form can be downloaded here.

We accept two types of submissions, i.e., full papers and "disruptive" papers.

  • Full papers can be up to six (6) pages, plus 2 additional pages if needed.
  • "Disruptive" papers will be of maximum 2 pages. They would primarily propose a disruptive idea in the framework of the workshop topics. A disruptive idea should be really novel. So, for instance, working on improving the quality on an already existing approach is not disruptive (usually), while proposing a totally new problem addressing a particularly new challenge, is disruptive. Disruptive papers will be evaluated by the PC, according to a standard review process.

Submissions must be self-contained and in English. Papers should neither have been published elsewhere nor being currently under review by another conference or journal. Submissions that do not follow these guidelines may be rejected without review.

Papers will be reviewed single-blind.

At least one author of an accepted paper must register, attend the workshop and present the paper.

Accepted and presented papers (both regular and disruptive) will be included in the Conference Proceedings and forwarded for inclusion in IEEE Computer Society Digital Library (CSDL), IEEE eXplore, and the ACM Digital Library. The conference proceedings will be submitted for El indexing through INSPEC by the IEEE.
