Full and Short Paper Submissions

SACLA 2014 is an international conference and all submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international panel of experts. English is the official conference language - all submissions must therefore be in English. All submissions in all categories of the SACLA 2014 Main Conference must follow the ACM International Conference Proceedings Series prescribed format (MS-Word or LaTeX format (with no additional libraries or special fonts) are acceptable). 

The template of the paper structure is available to the right under "Files you can download".

Papers that do not follow the template may be excluded from the conference proceedings. The maximum paper length as stipulated in the various submission categories also will be strictly enforced. For all tracks, only PDF files must be submitted for review. All submissions must be made through the Online Submission System.

We invite the submission of FULL PAPERS (maximum of 10 pages) and SHORT PAPERS (maximum of 4 pages) to report original previously-unpublished work in the topic areas of the conference. Full papers typically report on completed and mature research results while short papers report on works in progress with significant intermediate results. All full and short research paper submissions will be peer-reviewed by an international panel of experts. The review process will retain the anonymity of authors and reviewers. The program committee will consider the following criteria when evaluating submitted papers: originality of contribution; relevance to the conference; technical/scientific merit; and presentation and clarity. Accepted full and short research papers must be presented at the conference. Authors should guarantee the anonymity of their submissions (by removing names and affiliations from the first page and elsewhere in the paper that would allow reviewers to easily identify authors).

The proceedings for SACLA 2014 will possibly be published as part of the ACM's International Conference Proceedings Series, and will be available online in the ACM Digital Library.
