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Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research work, as well as industrial practice reports.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. 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.


Page limits are inclusive of tables, figures, appendices, and references.

COMPSAC 2018 is offering Open Preview, a new IEEE program designed to allow conference proceedings to be available in the IEEE Xplore digital library, free of charge to all, one month before the conference until the conference ends. Access to the conference proceedings will be available via the conference mobile app or directly on the Xplore digital library. Authors will be able to preview papers to be presented at the conference, and plan for questions, discussion and networking with other participants.
