HOW AND WHERE TO SUBMIT REFEREED PAPERS
Paper submissions are due by Wednesday, January 30, 2008, 11:59 p.m. PST (firm
deadline). All submissions will be made online via this Web form. Submissions should be finished, complete papers.
Paper submissions should be about 10 to a maximum of 20 typeset
pages, formatted in 1 column, using 11 point Times Roman type on 12
point leading, in a text block of 6.5" by 9". Once accepted, papers
must be reformatted to fit in 8 to 16 pages in a 2-column format,
using 10 point Times Roman type on 12 point leading, in a text block
of 6.5" by 9". If you wish, please make use of this LaTex style file and sample TeX file (see the corresponding PDF here) when preparing
your paper for submission. The page limits include
the bibliography and any appendices. Papers that exceed the page
limit run the risk of being summarily rejected.
Paper submissions must not be anonymized.
Submissions must be in PDF format (i.e., processed by Adobe's Acrobat
Distiller or equivalent). Note that LaTeX users can use the "dvipdf"
command to convert a DVI file into PDF format. Please make sure your
submission can be opened using Adobe Acrobat 5.0.
To insure that we can read your PDF file, authors are urged to follow
the NSF "Fastlane" guidelines for document preparation and to pay
special attention to unusual fonts. For more details, see:
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 research to multiple venues (including journals),
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, firstname.lastname@example.org, or the
USENIX office, email@example.com.
Papers accompanied by nondisclosure agreement forms will not be considered. All submissions will be treated as confidential prior to publication in the Proceedings.
Authors will be notified of acceptance by Monday, April 7, 2008. The
final paper due date is Tuesday, May 13, 2008 (firm deadline). 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 authors.
Specific questions about submissions may be sent via email to the
program chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
