Digests Submission

Prospective authors are requested to submit a digest no longer than five (5) pages, single column, single-spaced, summarizing the proposed paper. The digest should include key equations, figures, tables and references as appropriate, but no author names or affiliations. Digests not conforming to these requirements will be rejected without review. The digests must clearly state the objectives of the work, its significance in advancing the state of the art, and the methods and specific results in sufficient detail. All digests will go through a double-blind peer review process to ensure confidentiality and fair review. Please refer to the conference website for a detailed list of technical topics and the digest submission method.

Requirement Recap Make sure:

  1. the digest does not include any names or affiliations of the authors
  2. the digest has a maximum file size of eight megabytes (8 MB)
  3. the digest is at most five (5) pages long
  4. the digest has a one inch (1″) margin
  5. the digest has a single column
  6. the digest uses at least single line spacing
  7. the digest uses fonts that are at least 11pt (12pt is preferred)
