CCSC Southwest Region Conference 2017

March 24-25, 2017

Step I: Paper Submission

While acceptance of a paper will depend on the quality of the work as submitted, the author of an accepted paper will have a few weeks after acceptance to revise the submission slightly, especially in response to reviewers' comments.

To enable blind peer review, we require two versions of your paper: one anonymous version with all the author identifying information removed, and another version with standard attributions.

  • To submit a paper, please go to the paper submission system at
  • When you submit a paper electronically, you also set a password so that you can later view and update author and paper information. You should feel free to submit your paper early, because you can update your submission until the deadline.
  • Please format both versions of your paper according to the instructions at
  • Convert your paper to .pdf format, and upload both the anonymous and attributed versions to the paper submission system.

If you have any questions regarding the paper submission and reviewing, please contact our papers chair: Megan Thomas at
