The 11th CCSC Southwest Region Conference

March 23-24, 2018

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 http://www.cs.csustan.edu/openconf/openconf.php.
  • 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 http://www.ccsc.org/publications/submission-guidelines/.
  • 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 paper chair: Megan Thomas at mthomas@cs.csustan.edu


Step II: Final Submission Guidelines

For papers accepted for publication, follow the instructions below in submiting the final set of materials. We need the final manuscript in Microsoft Word format, and a completed copyright release form in PDF format.

  • Due to the requirements of our publication system, the final version of the accepted paper must be submitted as a Microsoft doc or docx file following the instructions at
    http://www.ccsc.org/publications/submission-guidelines/.
  • All authors must sign the Copyright Release Form. The Copyright Release Form can be downloaded from here. Each author should email a signed form for each paper.
  • Please email both the final version of your paper in doc format and the signed Copyright Release Form in PDF format to the Authors Chair, Pat Virtue, virtue@eecs.berkeley.edu. These must be received by Jan 5, 2018.

If you have any questions regarding final submission, please contact our Authors Chair: Pat Virtue at virtue@eecs.berkeley.edu
