Call for Papers

The conference is soliciting full papers on all aspects of research covered by the conference. Submitted papers will be evaluated on significance, originality, technical quality, and exposition. They should clearly establish the research contribution, its relevance, and its relation to prior research.

All submissions must be made in ACM's single-column "small standard format" (LaTeX; Word), without any modifications to font sizes, margins, or interline spacing. Submissions may be up to 18 pages, including title, abstract and bibliography. In addition, an appendix of arbitrary length may be included for the review only (i.e., an appendix will not appear if the paper is published). This appendix will only be read at the discretion of the reviewers. Papers submitted for publication as one-page abstracts are also subject to the same page limit during the review phase, and must also use the same formatting as regular papers. Submissions that deviate from the formatting rules may be rejected without review.

Results previously published at another archival conference prior to EC, or published (or accepted for  publication) at a journal prior to EC, will not be accepted at EC. Simultaneous submissions of the results to another conference with a published proceedings is not allowed.

Submissions will be accepted until February 11, 2013, 23:59 EST. This is a hard deadline.

IMPORTANT NOTICE: To accommodate the publishing traditions of different fields, authors of accepted papers can ask that only a one page abstract of the paper appear in the proceedings, along with a URL pointing to the full paper.  Authors should guarantee the link to be reliable for at least two years. This option is available to accommodate subsequent publication in journals that would not consider results that have been published in preliminary form in a conference proceedings. Such papers must be submitted electronically and formatted just like papers submitted for full-text publication.

Simultaneous submissions of results to another conference with published proceedings is not allowed. Results previously published or presented at another archival conference prior to EC, or published (or accepted for publication) at a journal prior to the submission deadline to EC, will not be considered. Simultaneous submission of results to a journal is allowed only if the author intends to publish the paper as a one page abstract in EC’13. Papers that are accepted and appear as a one page abstract can be subsequently submitted for publication in a journal but may not be submitted to any other conference that has a published proceedings.

The LaTeX settings that you can use for formatting your EC'13 submissions, when using the acmsmall document class, are:


You may also notice that the captions for the tables are entered using the \tbl{caption} command, as follows:

       \tbl{This is a table with two rows and two columns.}{%
               row one column one & row one column two \\
              row two column one & row two column two

instead of using the more commonly used \caption{...} command. Thanks for Felix Fischer and to David Parkes for the hints.
