Guidelines for papers, posters and demos

Deadline for full paper submission for final review is: 26th November 2012.

The following kinds of submissions are accepted:
  • Research papers (maximum paper length of 8 pages) present original, unpublished work relevant to the conference themes. Papers may be theoretical or based on empirical investigations. Papers are evaluated with respect to their theoretical sophistication and the quality and relevance of the research.
  • Practice sharing papers (4-6 pages) and Work in progress papers (4 pages) present original, unpublished work with a focus on innovative and valued practices within specific institutions. They can present preliminary results or raise issues of significance to the discipline. Practice sharing papers are mainly evaluated in terms of the scope of the evaluation of the innovation. All papers are evaluated by the potential relevance to other institutions and to their perceived impact on the community.
  • Poster/demo (2 pages abstract) should present innovative ideas for work in the early stages related to research, teaching practice, or tools. Demonstration of tools should stress the methodology and can include some hands-on work for participants.


All manuscripts should follow the IEEE formatting guidelines and adhere to the page limits for the appropriate submission category.

Citation style guide:

  • Research papers (maximum paper length of 8 pages)
  • Practice sharing papers (4-6 pages)
  • Work in progress papers (4 pages)
  • Poster/demo (2 pages abstract)
  • 1. Your review version should be anonymised for double blind review.
  • 2. Ensure that you have allowed space for the IEEE copyright block.
  • 3. Columns should be balanced on the final page of the manuscript.


Each paper will be reviewed by three members of the programme committee who will evaluate the extent to which the paper

  • demonstrates awareness of relevant prior work,
  • exemplifies good scholarship,
  • makes a contribution to the field,
  • and is well written.


At least one author per paper must register and pay the conference fee in advance for the paper to be presented. No shows would result in the paper being withdrawn and not being included for upload to the IEEE Xplore digital library.
