Paper submission guidelines for authors
PSIVT2010 proceedings will be published by Conference Publishing Service. All papers submitted must comply with the publication requirements by Conference Publication Service and will be copyrighted by IEEE if published.
Papers should be written in English. All papers must be submitted in electronic format as PDF files in our online paper submission system before the submission deadline. No other format will be accepted. There is a 10 MB limit on the uploaded file size. To publish the paper in the symposium proceedings, one of the authors must register at full registration rate and present the paper in the symposium.
Maximum Paper Length
Paper length is limited to six double-column pages using the Latex or Word templates available in the author’s kit below. The paper should be written as if it is already the camera-ready version. There is an allowance of 2 extra pages. A paper exceeding the maximum limit of 8 pages will be rejected without review. The extra page is charged at USD100 per page.
Double Blind Review
PSIVT2010 review is double blind, in that authors do not know the names of the area chair/reviewers of their papers, and area chairs/reviewers do not know the names of the authors. All papers will be reviewed by the Program Committee and may be accepted for oral or poster presentation. Authors are advised not to reveal their identity in the paper, especially when self-citing your previous work and your experimental data. A paper failed to observe the double-blind policy will be rejected without a review.
Note: Many authors misunderstand the concept of anonymizing for blind review. Blind review does not mean that one must remove citations to one's own work — in fact it is often impossible to review a paper unless the previous citations are known and available. Blind review means that you do not use the words “my” or “our” when citing previous work. That is all. Also remember to avoid information that may identify the authors in the acknowledgments (e.g. co-workers and grant IDs) and experimental data.
Dual Submission Policy
By submitting a manuscript to PSIVT2010, the author(s) assert that it has not been previously published in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper either has been or will be submitted during the PSIVT2010 review period to either a journal or a conference.
If there are any papers that may appear to the reviewers to violate this condition, then it is your responsibility to
