Information for Authors

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research work, as well as industrial practice reports. Simultaneous submission to other publication venues is not permitted except as highlighted at COMPSAC C1J2 & J1C2 Schemes page. In accordance with IEEE policy, submitted manuscripts will be checked for plagiarism. Instances of alleged misconduct will be handled according to the IEEE Publication Services and Product Board Operations Manual.

Please note that in order to ensure the fairness of the review process, COMPSAC follows the double-blind review procedure. Therefore we kindly ask authors to remove their names, affiliations and contacts from the header of their papers in the review version. Please also redact all references to authors’ names, affiliations or prior works from the paper when submitting papers for review. Once accepted, authors can then include their names, affiliations and contacts in the camera-ready revision of the paper, and put the references to their prior works back. A sample double-blinded review version paper can be found here.

Requirements for Accepted Papers

All presented contributions will be included the conference proceedings. Each accepted paper (full, short, industry, workshop, or fast abstract) is required to be registered at full rate by one of its authors, with no exceptions. Authors with multiple papers must register each paper. Reduced registration rates are available for posters and Student Research Symposium papers, but such registrations will provide limited privileges during the conference. All presented papers will be published in the electronic proceedings by the IEEE Computer Society. In order to enable indexing through INSPEC and EI Index, and inclusion in the IEEE digital library, a paper must be presented in person by one of its authors.

All papers must be submitted to the COMPSAC submission website. Links to workshop submission sites are on the respective workshop webpages. Questions regarding full conference papers should be directed to the COMPSAC Program Chairs at pcchair@compsac.info.
