Paper Formatting

Technical papers submitted for ASIACCS are to be written in English. Papers must be at most 12 pages including bibliography. However, a maximum of 3 additional pages can be used for well-marked appendices. Note that appendices cannot exceed 3 pages even if the main text is less than 12 pages. Submissions must be in double-column ACMSIG Proceedings format with page numbers. Submissions must be in Portable Document Format (.pdf). Authors should devote special care that fonts, images, tables and figures comply with common standards and do not generate problems for reviewers.

Submissions not meeting the formatting requirements risk rejection without consideration of their merits.

Double and Concurrent Submissions

Submissions to ASIACCS 2016 must not substantially overlap with papers that are published or simultaneously submitted to other venues (including journals or conferences/workshops). Double-submission will result in immediate rejection. Detected violations may be reported to other conference chairs and journal editors.

Anonymous Submissions

ASIACCS requires double-blind reviewing process. All submissions should be appropriately anonymized. Author names and affiliations should not appear in the paper. The authors should avoid obvious self-references and should appropriately blind them if used. The list of authors cannot be changed after the acceptance decision is made unless approved by the Program Chairs.

Ethical Considerations

The authors should take care of clarifying any potential ethical and legal concerns to their results, highly critical vulnerabilities or exploits, etc. The authors should provide evidence that they have thoroughly considered such issues.

The Program Committee reserves the right to reject a submission if insufficient evidence was presented that ethical or relevant legal concerns were appropriately addressed.

Conflicts of Interest

The program chairs require cooperation from both authors and program committee members to prevent submissions from being evaluated by reviewers who may have a conflict of interest. During the submission, authors should identify members of the program committee with whom they have a conflict of interest. Conflict of interest includes but not limited to: advisors and advisees (at any time in the past); authors and PC members who share an institutional relationship; professional collaborations (regardless of whether they resulted in a publication) that occurred in the past 2 years; line-of-management relationship, grant program manager, close personal relationships.

Authors are not allowed to declare conflicts of interest in order to prevent submissions from being reviewed by selected PC members. However, authors can contact the program chairs and provide convincing arguments if they have certain concerns about the fair judgement of their submissions. PC members, including chairs that have a conflict of interest with a paper, will be entirely excluded from the evaluation of that paper.

Camera-Ready and Conference Presentation

If a paper is accepted, the author list in submission cannot be changed when preparing the camera-ready version. Authors of accepted papers must also guarantee that their papers will be presented at the conference. At least one author of the paper must be registered at the appropriate full conference rate.

Early Rejection Notification

Depending on the number of submissions, the review process may consist of several reviewing rounds. In order to allow authors to timely improve their work and submit to other venues, authors of submissions for which there is a consensus on rejection will be notified earlier.
