The submission deadlines, length restriction and formatting instructions (as set out in the following) are firm: submissions deviating from these may be rejected by the Programme Committee Chair without further consideration.
Every paper must be in English and provide sufficient detail to allow the programme committee to assess the merits of the paper. It should begin with a succinct statement of the issues, a summary of the main results, and a brief explanation of their significance and relevance to the symposium and to computer science, all phrased for the non-specialist. Technical development directed to the specialist should follow. References and comparisons with related work should be included.
Papers may be no longer than 10 pages including title, abstract and references, and must be formatted in two-column style, at least 10pt font, with ample spacing and margins. If necessary, detailed proofs of technical results can be included in a clearly-labelled appendix in the same two-column format. The material in the appendix may be read at the discretion of the programme committee.
The results must be unpublished and not submitted for publication elsewhere, including the proceedings of other symposia or workshops. The PC chair should be informed of closely related work submitted to a conference or journal in advance of submission. All authors of accepted papers will be expected to sign copyright release forms. One author of each accepted paper will be expected to present it at the Symposium.
Authors are recommended to use the IEEE latex style fyles for the two-column proceedings format. The style files and instructions for using them can be found here. (The file bare_conf.tex may be used as a template.)
