Submission Guidelines and Proceeding

Manuscripts should be prepared in 10-point font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column conference format. All papers should be submitted electronically as PDF files on  .Submitted papers must present original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines may be rejected without review. Besides, submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured will not be considered. Authors may contact the Program Chair for further information or clarification.

All submissions are blind peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings and published by the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services and will be submitted to IEEE Xplore for inclusion. Submission of regular papers must not exceed 8 pages. Each submission must include, outside the main body of the paper, up to 7 keywords, complete postal and e-mail address, and fax and phone numbers of the corresponding author. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the conference. Submitted papers that are deemed of good quality but that could not be accepted as regular papers will be accepted as short papers.

Double-Blind Peer Review Guidelines

AICCSA 2020 uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity or affiliation.

Information to help prepare the Blinded Manuscript

Besides the obvious need to remove names and affiliations under the title within the manuscript, there are other steps that need to be taken to ensure the manuscript is correctly prepared for double-blind peer review. To assist with this process the key items that need to be observed are as follows:

       Use the third person to refer to work the Authors have previously undertaken, e.g. replace any phrases like “as we have shown before” with “… has been shown before [Anonymous, 2007]”.

       Make sure figures do not contain any affiliation related identifier

       Do not eliminate essential self-references or other references but limit self-references only to papers that are relevant for those reviewing the submitted paper.

       Cite papers published by the Author in the text as follows: ‘[Anonymous, 2007]’.

       For blinding in the reference list: ‘[Anonymous 2007] Details omitted for double-blind reviewing.’

       Remove references to funding sources.

       Do not include acknowledgments

       Remove any identifying information, including author names, from file names and ensure document properties are also anonymized.


Special Issues

Selected papers from the conference will be invited to submit an extended version to the following journal. Papers will be selected based on their reviewers’ scores and appropriateness to the Journal’s topic. All extended versions will undergo reviews and must represent original unpublished research work. Further details will be made available at a later stage.
