The conference is soliciting full papers on all aspects of research covered by the conference as described in the call for papers (CFP), see Submitted papers will be evaluated on significance of the contribution, originality, relation to prior research, technical quality, and exposition. Submissions must include all material necessary for a full evaluation of the paper's claims and contributions.

All submissions must be made in ACM's single-column small format adapted for ECí17, without any modifications to font sizes, margins, or interline spacing. The latex template files can be downloaded here. 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. Although papers may be published as one-page abstracts (see details below), all papers go through the same review process and thus must be submitted at the same format. Thus, 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 (as reviewers should be unaware of that distinction). Submissions that deviate from the formatting rules may be rejected without review.

Submissions will be accepted until February 13th, 2017, 2:59 PM ET. This is a hard deadline.

NEW: Papers must be registered and short abstract should be submitted by February 6th, 2017, 2:59 PM ET.

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.

SPECIAL NOTE ON STOCí17 submissions: If you have a STOCí17 submission and plan to send the paper to ACM ECí17 if rejected from STOC, please register the paper by February 6th as any other submission, and in case the paper is accepted to STOC, delete the ECí17 submission when notified by STOC.

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 ECí17. 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.
