Submission Instructions

To register and submit your paper (in PDF format), please use the submission website and follow the instructions provided.

To register your paper or extended abstract (deadline October 8th) you need to provide basic information about the submission including its title, abstract, keywords,and author(s). You do not need to upload the full PDF for the purpose of paper registration, but the paperÂ’s full PDF must be uploaded before the paper submission deadline (October 11th).

The submission gateways close at 11:59 PM Hawaii Standard Time (HST = GMT - 10:00) on Oct 8 and Oct 11 respectively.

If a substantial part of your work appeared previously, please provide the citation and one sentence description of the differences in the box provided. Work that has previously appeared in a workshop without an associated archival publication can be submitted to the conference. For such papers simply fill in the paper and workshop info. Authors of papers that build on earlier work that appeared in an archival publication are asked to provide the relevant citations and a one sentence description of the key advances/differences. This information will be kept from the reviewers to ensure a double-blind review and will only be used by the program chairs.

Authors are encouraged to reference and discuss all published literature relevant to the paper, including their own. To ensure the effectiveness of the double-blind review process, authors are requested to ensure the paper registration number (provided upon paper registration) and not the author names are used on the front page. In addition, authors are requested to ensure that any references to their own previous work are made in a way that does not disclose their identity. For example, instead of "in previous work, we have shown X [ref]" authors are asked to consider expressions such as "X was shown in [ref]". Identifying information can be added at the authorsÂ’ discretion in the final version of the paper. Authors are also asked to ensure that the PDF file submitted does not contain embedded identifying information.
