Submission Instructions in Detail


The following is a detailed explanation of the instructions to submit your paper to RCCS+SPIDTEC2.

Formatting

The submissions should be formatted using the following LaTeX or Word style files and template.

There is no set page limit for the submission, and it should contain all details, proofs, and derivations required to substantiate the results. However, the reviewers are not required to read beyond the first 15 pages when evaluating the submission. Therefore, the first 15 (or fewer) pages should contain a concise and clear presentation of the paper’s contributions, as well as sufficient detail to convince the reviewers of the paper’s merits. Additional pages should be used for references, technical information and derivations, and not for presenting critical new ideas or contributions. Your manuscript will be treated as being in close-to-final form and reflective of the final paper. Therefore significant issues with presentation (such as excessive typos and missing definitions) and incorrect, missing or unintelligible proofs can be grounds for rejection.

Dual submission policy

Submissions that are substantially similar to papers that have been previously published, accepted for publication, or submitted in parallel to other peer-reviewed conferences with proceedings may not be resubmitted to RCCS+SPIDTEC2. The same policy applies to journals, unless the submission is a short version of a paper submitted to a journal, and not yet published. Authors must declare such dual submissions either through the EasyChair submission form or via email to the program chairs.

Anonymization

RCCS+SPIDTEC2 reviewing is double-blind, and submissions should NOT include author names or other identifying information. To the extent possible, avoid including directly identifying information. You should still include all relevant references, discussion, and scientific content, even if this might provide significant hints as to the author identity. You should generally refer to your prior work in the third person.
Avoid including acknowledgments in the submission (these can be added later).
It is expressly allowed to make available online a non-anonymized version of the submission or any other material that might reveal the author identities, e.g., on the author’s web pages, on arXiv, or on any other site.

Submitting your paper

Papers should be submitted through EasyChair by the fixed time on the Important Dates menu.

Please read the FAQ section and contact the RCCS+SPIDTEC2 chairs at rccs2018@easychair.org in case of further questions about the policy or technical issues with the submission process.

We look forward to reading your submissions and good luck!
