Authors will be notified of receipt of submission via e-mail. If you do not receive notification, contact:

Papers should be 8 to 12 single-spaced 8.5 x 11 inch pages (about 4000-6000 words), not counting figures and references. Papers longer than 14 pages and papers so short as to be considered extended abstracts will not be reviewed. More detailed author instructions will be made available here soon.

It is imperative that you follow the instructions for submitting a quality paper. Specific questions about submissions may be sent to the program chair via email to:

A good paper will clearly demonstrate that the authors:

  • are attacking a significant problem,
  • are familiar with the literature,
  • have devised an original or clever solution,
  • if appropriate, have implemented the solution and characterized its performance using reasonable experimental techniques, and
  • have drawn appropriate conclusions from their work.

Note: the USENIX Technical Conference, like most conferences and journals, requires that papers not be submitted simultaneously to more than one conference or publication, and that submitted papers not be previously or subsequently published elsewhere. Papers submitted to this conference that are under review elsewhere will not be reviewed. Papers accompanied by non-disclosure agreement forms can not be accepted, and will not be reviewed. All submissions are held in the highest confidentiality prior to publication in the Proceedings, both as a matter of policy and in accord with the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976.

Authors will be notified by January 26, 2000. All accepted papers will be shepherded by a program committee member through an editorial review process prior to final acceptance for publication in the proceedings.

If you would like to use a predefined template when formatting your submission, please see the Instructions for Authors of Accepted Papers.
