Paper Format & Templates

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research work, as well as industrial practice reports.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

The CJ (Conference/Journal) program. This program was developed as a bonus for selected papers presented at this year’s COMPSAC. Conference organizers will select articles they believe worthy of publication in an IEEE journal. The selections will be forwarded to appropriate IEEE journal editors-in-chief (EIC), requesting that they consider the paper(s) for inclusion in their publication. Papers undergoing this process will not be included in the conference proceedings unless the journal rejects them. At that time, they will be retroactively included in the already-published proceedings. If the journal accepts them, a note will be inserted in the archived proceeding pointing to the journals as the locations of the published papers.


Page limits are inclusive of tables, figures, appendices, and references. Full conference papers and workshop papers can add an additional 2 pages with additional page charges ($125 USD/page).

Journal then Conference (JC) papers: 2 pages
