Submission site: Paperplaza
Site will be open for submission 6 weeks before the submission deadline. Dates are based on US Pacific Time.
Papers presented at the ICAR 2011 will be archived in IEEE Xplore. Authors shall follow formatting instructions to prepare the manuscripts for initial and (if accepted) final submissions. Authors are encouraged to use the available Latex or Microsoft Word templates to prepare the manuscripts. Only PDFs are accepted for submission. Information on generating and testing IEEE Xplore-compliant PDFs can be found here.
Submitted manuscripts undergo full-paper peer review. For the initial submission, a maximum of eight pages in the standard two-column format is allowed for each paper. For the final submission of accepted papers, six pages in the standard two-column format are allowed for each paper, with a maximum of two additional pages permitted at an extra charge of €100 per page. The final submission of an accepted paper shall be accompanied by a one-page slide that summarizes the paper. These slides will be organized by sessions and distributed to ICAR 2011 participants as a Digest. Please prepare your slide using the Powerpoint template (coming soon).
The final submission of an accepted paper requires a full registration (at non-student rate) by one of the coauthors. A single registration can be used to upload up to two papers.
Accepted papers will be assigned to oral or interactive sessions at the discretion of the Program Committee.
Proposals for special sessions consist of (a) a proposed title for the session; (b) a brief 2-3 paragraph summary for the session explaining the goal of the session and the overarching themes of the invited papers; and (c) a list of papers with contributing authors and tentative abstracts for the papers. There is a two-page limit on each proposal. The proposals must be submitted electronically through PaperPlaza before the paper deadline. Authors of invited papers will need the session code for the proposed session to submit the papers for review. Thus session organizers will want to submit the proposals for the sessions well before the paper deadline. Please note all papers (invited or contributed) will be subject to the same rigorous review process.
