Research and ESS Paper Submission Guidelines
All Research Paper submissions MUST adhere to the following rules:
- be in PDF format only
- contain an abstract of approximately 60 words clearly stating the significant contribution, impact, and results of the submission
- must not exceed six pages (including the abstract, figures, tables, and references), double-columned, 9-pt or 10-pt font
- MUST NOT identify the author(s) by their name(s) or affiliation(s) anywhere on the manuscript or abstract, with all references to the author(s)'s own previous work or affiliations in the bibliographic citations being in the third person.
- list all authors and their affiliations in the web-based submission form (i.e., not in the paper); the addition of new authors to an accepted paper will not be permitted.
DAC papers go through a double-blind review process; i.e., the identity of authors and reviewers is only known to the TPC co-chairs. DAC ensures that there are no conflicts of interest between authors and reviewers. DAC will compare each submission against a vast database and any paper with significant similarity to previously published works or with papers that are simultaneously under review with other venues with archival publications (e.g., conferences, symposia, journals, and workshops with archival proceedings), will be rejected. Submissions not adhering to these rules will be rejected.
All Research and Embedded Systems and Software papers will be reviewed as finished papers. Preliminary submissions will be at a disadvantage. Acceptance notices will be available by logging in to the DAC website after Feb. 4, 2011. Complete instructions for final paper submission and required release forms will be available on the DAC website by March 7, 2011. Authors of accepted papers must sign and submit a copyright release form for their paper. All conference presenters will be required to register at the time of final paper submission, present their paper and participate in a research poster session.
ACM and IEEE reserve the right to exclude a paper from archival distribution after the conference if the paper is not presented by one of the co-authors at the conference, or in other exceptional cases. DAC will support the IEEE Prohibited Authors List.
Templates for ACM proceedings are presented in LaTex (Option#2-sig-alternate class file), WordPerfect and Microsoft Word (using Word is preferred) and located at: http://www.acm.org/sigs/pubs/proceed/template.html.
The DAC review process is both blind and confidential. Reviewers do not know the names of the authors, and reviewers must maintain confidentiality as proscribed by the IEEE, which states in IEEE Policy 10.1.13
IEEE policy requires that conferences maintain confidentially in handling submitted papers. Therefore a conference committee should treat the contents of submitted papers/abstracts as privileged information and should not disclose this information to others not involved in the review process prior to the presentation or publication. The conference committee shall ensure that referees are aware of this policy. It is expected that anyone with access to a paper under review will not make inappropriate use of the special knowledge which that access provides.
