Guidelines for Paper Submission
Original papers from the above-mentioned or other related areas will be considered. This includes three categories of submissions: 1) original and unpublished research; 2) reports of innovative computing applications in the arts, sciences, engineering, business, government, education and industry; and 3) reports of successful technology transfer to new problem domains. Each submitted paper will be fully refereed and undergo a blind review process by at least three referees for quality, correctness, originality, and relevance. Notification and reviews will be communicated via email. All papers must be submitted electronically in the format of Adobe PDF and Postscript (preferably) or MS Word. Please, upload your papers electronically to the website:
Author(s) name(s) and address(es) must NOT appear in the paper body. Any self-reference should be in the third person. Each paper must not exceed 4,000 words (approx. 15-20 pages, double-spaced). The program committee may reject papers that exceed this length on the grounds of length alone. In addition, for each submitted paper, a separated cover page (preferably in MS Word or plain ASCII) should be sent to the email address:
including the paper title, abstract, list of key words, and list of authors with full names and postal addresses, telephone numbers, fax numbers, and email addresses. One of the authors must be designated as the primary contact point to receive the notification at the time of the paper submission. At least one of the authors of the accepted paper must register for the conference and present the paper. The accepted papers will be published in the ACM SAC 2004 proceedings. A set of selected papers, which did not get accepted as full papers, will be accepted as poster papers and will be published as extended 2-page abstracts in the symposium proceedings.
