CCSC NW Checklist, Forms, and Guidelines for Authors

Annual Northwestern Regional Conference

Papers are published in the The Journal of Computing Sciences in Colleges.

You can register and submit all supporting material via the conference management web page. You can scan your signed copy of the copyright and submit it electronically as well. You can upload each file individually, just pick a reasonable naming convention (e.g., paper-final.doc, paper-final.pdf, presenter-bio.doc, copyright.pdf, avrequestform.doc, etc..).


  1. Register for the conference.
  2. Submit your final manuscript together with:
    • Presenter's Biography [DOC]
    • AV Request Form [DOC]
    • Copyright Release Form from the CCSC site - submit a scanned signed copy (or mail to the Editor)
      Note that you need to include a signature at the end of Part I and at the end of Part IV; you only need to sign Part II or Part III if those sections apply to you.
      If you are a lead author signing for all of the paper's authors, please write "signing for all co-authors with their permission" or "signing for co-author with his/her permission" after your signature in Part IV of the copyright form.

Please see the CCSC Publication Guidelines page for detailed instructions on formatting your paper for publication. The General Guidelines details all of the materials you will need to submit and Manuscript Formatting precisely describes the publication format. Templates for MS Word are also available.
