ISPASS 2018 paper submission website: https://ispass2018.eecs.umich.edu/
Please make sure that your submission satisfies all the requirements listed below.
- The paper must have an abstract, maximum 250 words.
- You will not be allowed to submit a full paper without submitting an abstract first.
- The paper must be original material that has not been previously published in another conference or journal, nor is currently under review by another conference or journal. Note that you may submit material presented previously at a workshop without copyrighted proceedings.
- The content of the submission is limited to nine (9) 8.5"x11" single-spaced double-column pages using 10 pt or larger font, with an unlimited number of additional pages for references. All content other than references (figures, appendices, etc.) must be confined to the first 9 pages. Papers that exceed the length limit or deviate from the formatting requirements may be rejected without review.
- References must list all authors for any reference with fewer than 10 co-authors. Complete author lists facilitate the review process.
- Papers are to be submitted for double-blind review. Author names as well as hints of identity are to be removed from the submitted paper.
- Do not omit references to provide anonymity, as this leaves the reviewer unable to grasp the context. Instead, if you reference your own work, do it in third person, as if you were referencing someone else's research.
- Your paper must be formatted in such a way that it is clear to understand (including plots and diagrams) with a black-and-white print-out.
- Please number the pages.
- The paper must be submitted in PDF format. We cannot accept any other format, and we must be able to print the document just as we receive it.
- We strongly suggest that you use only the four widely-used printer fonts: Times, Helvetica, Courier, and Symbol.
- You may use IEEE Conference templates (http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html), as long you use the conference version of the template and follow the formatting requirements above.
Guidelines on conflicts of interest
We define a conflict of interest as:
- Your Ph.D. advisor and Ph.D. students forever.
- Family relations by blood or marriage forever.
- People with whom you collaborated in the past five years:
- Collaborators include co-authors on an accepted/rejected/pending research papers, co-PIs on an accepted/rejected/pending grant, those who fund your research, and researchers whom you fund.
- "Service" collaborations, such as writing a report or serving on a program committee, are not a conflict of interest by themselves.
- Anyone with whom you believe a conflict of interest exists (check with the program chair if you have a question or doubt).
