In order to submit your paper, please follow the instructions below.

1) Paper Preparation

  • Initial manuscripts should NOT include authors' names and their affiliations in order to perform a blind review. Any information that reveals authors such as acknowledgment to grant should NOT include even in PDF property. Any violation on blind review policy may cause rejection without review process. Authors' names, their affiliations and the contact person are requested when you submit your paper via the paper submission system.

  • The paper should be 6 pages in length including all figures, tables and references. The technical expositions will be reviewed by specialists but should include an introduction for nonspecialists that describes the problem and achieved results, focusing on the important ideas and their significance.

  • Accepted file format is PDF only. No other formats will be accepted. You must make a pdf file which can be read by Acrobat Reader 5.0. Manuscripts should not include special fonts such as Asian fonts.

  • The paper for initial submission is to be formatted like this (Latex, and Latex2e). You can get the templates of initial submission for Latex, Latex2e, and MSWord.

2) Paper Submission


  • All accepted papers should be presented by one of the authors at the conference.
  • Double and/or parallel submissions of similar work to any other conferences, symposia, and journals are not allowed.
  • It is mandatory that at least one co-author per accepted paper registers the conference at the speaker's registration rate. Please note that each paper shall be accompanied by at least one different full conference registration at the speaker rate (i.e., two speaker's registrations are needed for two accepted papers, e.g. from the main author or a co-author of the paper).


  • ACM and IEEE reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference by the author of the paper.
  • Papers will be accepted for publication as either of regular papers or short papers. The paper type ** cannot ** be chosen by authors when submitting papers.
  • Papers may need to be shortened after acceptance, depending on the paper type. The page limit for short papers will be four.
  • The page limit for regular papers is 6 pages. For the camera-ready version up to 2 extra pages (maximum 8 pages) are allowed with extra payment.
