Call for Papers and Submission Instructions

eCRS has adopted the IEEE publication format.
Submissions should be in English, in PDF format with all fonts embedded, formatted using the the IEEE conference template, found here: http://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/authors/authors_journals.html

Submissions should include author names, affiliations and acknowledgments. They should not exceed 12 letter-sized pages, not counting the bibliography and appendices. Papers should begin with a title, abstract, and an introduction that clearly summarizes the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Papers should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation, relevance to practical applications, and a clear comparison with related work.

Committee members are not required to read appendices, and papers should be intelligible without them. Submitted papers risk being rejected without consideration of their merits if they do not follow all the above guidelines.

Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that was published elsewhere, or work that any of the authors has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop that has proceedings. Authors will be asked to indicate whether their submissions should be considered for the best student paper award; any paper co-authored by a full-time student is eligible for this award. Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference.

A limited number of stipends are available to those unable to obtain funding to attend the conference. Students whose papers are accepted and who will present the paper themselves are given priority to receive such assistance. Requests for stipends should be addressed to the general chair after September 10.

Full papers have to be submitted via EDAS through the following short link: http://edas.info/N12761

First, papers have to be registered, then authors can upload their papers.  A successful submission can be viewed in EDAS, and a confirmation email is sent to the corresponding author. Please make sure you receive that confirmation email when you submit, and follow the directions in that email if you require any follow up.

Research In Progress (RIP)

A special category is available in the paper submission system for Research in Progress (RIP). This category allows for research that is not yet ready for publication but would be of interest to other researchers for presentation and discussion. For consideration in this category please submit an extensive abstract via the paper submission system.

RIPs have to be submitted via EDAS through the following short link: http://edas.info/N12761. First, RIPs have to be registered, then authors can upload their papers. A successful submission can be viewed in EDAS, and a confirmation email is sent to the corresponding author. Please make sure you receive that confirmation email when you submit, and follow the directions in that email if you require any follow up.



Accepted papers will be published in proceedings. In addition, cash awards will be given for the best paper overall and the best student co-authored paper. A limited number of cash travel awards will also be made to student authors of papers and posters.
