All submissions will be judged on originality, relevance, correctness,
and clarity. In addition to citing relevant published work, authors
should relate their submission to any other relevant submissions of
theirs in other venues that are under review at the same time as their
submission to the Symposium. Simultaneous submission of the same work
to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, and
plagiarism constitute dishonesty or fraud. USENIX, like other
scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits these
practices and may, on the recommendation of a program chair, take
action against authors who have committed them. In some cases, program
committees may share information about submitted papers with other
conference chairs and journal editors to ensure the integrity of
papers under consideration. If a violation of these principles is
found, sanctions may include, but are not limited to, barring the
authors from submitting to or participating in USENIX conferences for
a set period, contacting the authors' institutions, and publicizing
the details of the case.
Authors uncertain whether their submission meets USENIX's guidelines should contact the program chair, email@example.com, or the USENIX office, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be
considered. All submissions are treated as confidential, both as a
matter of policy and in accord with the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976.
Authors will be notified of acceptance by April 4, 2007. The
camera-ready final paper due date is May 14, 2007. Each accepted
submission may be assigned a member of the program committee to act as
its shepherd through the preparation of the final paper. The assigned
member will act as a conduit for feedback from the committee to the
Specific questions about submissions may be sent via email to the
program chair at email@example.com.
