Submission of Papers
Draft Paper Submission and Evaluation Process
Prospective authors are invited to submit their papers by
uploading them to the evaluation web site at:http://world-comp.org.
Submissions must be uploaded by the announced deadline and they must be in
either MS doc or pdf formats (about 7 pages including all figures,
tables, and references - single space, font size of 10 to 12). All
reasonable typesetting formats are acceptable (later, the authors of
accepted papers will be asked to follow a particular typesetting format
to prepare their final papers for publication.) Papers must not have
been previously published or currently submitted for publication
elsewhere. The first page of the paper should include: title of the
paper, name, affiliation, postal address, and email address for each
author. The first page should also identify the name of the Contact Author
and a maximum of 5 topical keywords that would best represent the content
of the paper. The name of the conference (ie, SERP) that the paper is
being submitted for consideration must be stated on the first page of the
paper as well as a 100 to 150-word abstract. The length of the final
Camera-Ready papers (if accepted) will be limited to 7 (two-column IEEE
Each paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts in the field for originality,
significance, clarity, impact, and soundness. In cases of contradictory
recommendations, a member of the conference program committee will be charged
to make the final decision (accept/reject); often, this would involve seeking
help from additional referees by using a double-blinded review process. In
addition, all papers whose authors include a member of the conference program
committee will be evaluated using the double-blinded review process.
(Essay/philosophical papers will not be refereed but may be considered for
discussion/panels). The proceedings will be processed for indexing into science citation databases that track
citation frequency/data for each paper. These science citation databases include:
Inspec / IET / The Institute for Engineering and Technology,
CiteSeerX citation index, Google Scholar, Microsoft Academic Search, and other science databases.
The printed proceedings/books will be available for
distribution on site at the conference.
In addition to the publication of the proceedings, selected authors will be
invited to submit extended versions of their papers for publication in a
number of research books contracted with various publishers (such as,
Springer, Elsevier, ...) - these books will be composed after the
conference. Also, many chairs of tracks will be forming journal special
issues to be published after the conference.
