Submitted papers must describe original work not previously published or concurrently submitted elsewhere. The main body of each submitted paper is limited to 10 pages of technical content with additional pages permitted for the bibliography and acknowledgments only. Additionally, each submission may include an optional appendix with supplemental material that will be read at the discretion of the program committee; this appendix is limited to two pages (for up to 12 pages total of technical content, i.e., content not including the bibliography and acknowledgements). Authors of accepted papers that exceed 10 pages of technical content (due to the inclusion of an optional appendix) will be required to pay a fee of $100 for each page of technical content beyond the tenth. Submissions (including the optional appendix) must be formatted according to IEEE conference paper guidelines.

Authors are advised to format their papers so that the case for acceptance is made clear in the main body of the paper (i.e., within the first 10 pages). The optional appendix can be used (for example) to provide additional performance graphs or to provide more detailed versions of proofs that are sketched in the main body of the paper.

A submission based on previous work presented in a workshop with no digital object identifier (DOI) is eligible for acceptance.  A submission based on a workshop paper published with a DOI is eligible for acceptance, provided it contains at least 30% new material.  As is always the case, the Chair of the Technical Program Committee makes the final determination on acceptance or rejection of acceptable papers.
