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. There is page limit of 6 pages.

To enable blind peer review, we require an anonymous version with all the author identifying information removed.

  • To submit a paper, please go to the paper submission system at
