The JC (Journal/Conference) program. Authors of papers published in a peer-reviewed journal (or accepted for publication) can present their plans for ongoing research based on the work described in that paper at this year’s COMPSAC. Authors must submit their published article (or its DOI) and a two-page description of their planned extension to the content of that paper. Use the JC process if you are a previous author and wish to seek comments and suggestions from conference attendees regarding your planned research extensions.
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
