Final Manuscript and Publication Guidelines

For Authors

Each regional conference’s “call for papers” has its own submission guidelines for submitting work for consideration. Usually a PDF file with the authors’ information hidden is sufficient. You may choose to follow the final manuscript formatting guidelines as follows so that minimal editing is needed when authors need to submit their final manuscripts for publication.

Final Manuscript

Once your work is accepted by the conference committee, you must prepare your work for publication by following this guideline. We strongly recommend that you use our Latex templates, which formats your work using the specific style for our journal. It also makes our journal editor’s job easier because the final journal editing and compilation is done in Latex.

The Latex templates repository contains further instructions in README files. You can download the repository and choose the template you need. Each template has a sample pdf file showing what the formatted work should look like.

If you do not want to use Latex we do accept final manuscripts in Word doc format. Please use this Word doc template, which is converted from our Latex template. It has the correct margin size and font size, which should help you gauge the length of your paper (number of pages). Here is a list of sample publishable items:

The following items should be included in your final manuscript submission:

Copyright Release Form
