Submissions Guidelines and PROCEEDINGS

Manuscripts should be prepared in 10-point font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column conference format. All papers should be in PDF format, and submitted electronically on EasyChair at A regular paper must not exceed 8 pages (including all figures, tables and references). Submitted papers must present original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected without review. In addition, submissions received after the due date, exceeding the length limit, or not appropriately structured will be rejected without review. Authors may contact the Program Chair for further information or clarification.

All submissions will be blind peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Accepted papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings, and be published by the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services and be submitted to IEEE Xplore for inclusion.

Each paper should include up to 7 keywords, complete postal and e-mail addresses, and fax and phone numbers of the corresponding author. Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the conference. Submitted papers that are deemed of good quality but could not be accepted as regular papers may be accepted as short papers.


Double-Blind Peer Review Guidelines

AICCSA 2021 uses double-blind review, which means that the author’s identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors must ensure that their manuscripts be prepared in a way that does not give away their identities or affiliations. If a submission is not anonymized, it will be rejected without review.


Information to help prepare the Blinded Manuscript

Besides the obvious need to remove names and affiliations under the title within the manuscript, there are other steps that need to be taken to ensure the manuscript is correctly prepared for double-blind peer review. To assist with this process, the key items that need to be observed are as follows:

- Use the third person to refer to the work the authors have previously undertaken, e.g., replace any phrases like “as we have shown before” with  “… has been shown before [Anonymous, 2007]”.

- Make sure that figures not contain any affiliation-related identifier.

- Do not eliminate essential self-references or other references but limit self-references only to papers that are relevant for those reviewing the submitted paper.

- Cite papers published by the authors in the text as follows: ‘[Anonymous, 2007]’.

- For blinding on the reference list: ‘[Anonymous 2007] Details omitted for double-blind review

- Remove references to funding sources.

- Do not include acknowledgments.

- Remove any identifying information, including author names, from file names, etc. and anonymize document properties.


Special Issues

Selected papers from the conference will be invited to submit an extended version to a journal to be announced. Papers will be selected based on their reviewers’ scores and appropriateness to the Journal’s theme. All extended versions will undergo reviews and must represent original unpublished research work. Further details will be made available at a later stage.
