Paper Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must be written in English and have no more than six (6) pages in double-column format with standard margins and at least a 10 point font. This length includes everything: figures, tables, references, appendices and so forth. Longer submissions will not be reviewed. Papers should include a title and an abstract of fewer than 200 words.

All papers must be formatted for printing on US LETTER (8.5" by 11") size paper and must adhere to the IEEE formatting requirements (for LaTeX, use "conference" option). Papers must be submitted in PDF (Portable Document Format) and be compatible with Acrobat (English version), not including any special characters or non-standard fonts. We must be able to display and print your submission exactly as we receive it and using only standard tools and postscript printers, so we strongly suggest that you use only standard fonts. Make sure that the paper prints well on black-and-white printers, not color printers. This is especially true for plots and graphs in the paper.

Submissions must be original, unpublished work, and not under consideration at another conference.

CSWS uses a single-blind review process (not double-blind as ICNP).

Please see the conference webpage for other, additional submission guidelines.
