Submit a Technical Paper
Authors are asked to submit their work in two stages. In stage one (abstract submission), a title, abstract, and a list of all co-authors must be submitted via the ICCAD web submission site. In stage two (paper submission), the paper itself is submitted whereby the submitted abstract of stage one can still be modified. Authors are responsible for ensuring that their paper submission meets all guidelines, and that the PDF is readable.
Regular papers will be reviewed as finished papers; preliminary submissions will be at a disadvantage. Research papers with open-source software are highly encouraged where the software will be made publicly available (via GitHub or similar) with the camera-ready version if the paper has been accepted. For protecting the authors’ identities in the double-blind review process, please do not include direct link to the non-anonymized software yet in the submitted paper but indicate the open-source contribution on a textural basis only. Authors wanting to share GitHub repositories may want to look into using https://anonymous.4open.science/ which is an open-source tool that helps you to quickly double-blind your repository.
DEADLINE FOR ABSTRACT SUBMISSIONS
The submission abstract deadline is 5:00pm PDT (GMT -08:00) Monday, May 16, 2022. No abstract submissions will be possible after this deadline.
DEADLINE FOR PAPER SUBMISSIONS
The submission deadline for paper is 5:00pm PDT (GMT -08:00) Monday, May 23, 2022. We always have several authors contact the ICCAD office asking for a deadline extension. Due to the limited review cycle, NO extensions will be granted for ANY reason.
REGULAR PAPER SUBMISSIONS
All papers must be in PDF format only, with savable text and embedded fonts in included (vector) graphics.
Each paper must be no more than 8 pages (including the abstract, figures and tables), double-columned, 9pt or 10pt font. Starting from last year, one page of references is allowed, which does not count towards this 8-page limitation.
Your submission must not include information that serves to identify the authors of the manuscript, such as name(s) or affiliation(s) of the author(s), anywhere in the manuscript, abstract, or in the embedded PDF data. References and bibliographic citations to the author(s) own published works or affiliations should be made in the third person.
Double-Blind Review Policy: ICCAD follows double-blind review policy. Your submission must not include information that serves to identify the authors of the manuscript, such as name(s) or affiliation(s) of the author(s), anywhere in the manuscript, abstract, or in the embedded PDF data. References and bibliographic citations to the author(s) own published works or affiliations should be made in the third person.
By submitting a manuscript to ICCAD 2022, the authors guarantee that the manuscript has not been previously published or accepted for publication in any conference, journal, or the archived proceedings of a workshop (see exceptions below). The authors also guarantee that no paper that contains significant overlap with the contributions of the submitted paper will be under review for any other conference or journal or an archived proceedings of a workshop during the ICCAD 2022 review period. Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection.
The only exceptions to the above rules are for the authors’ own papers in (1) workshops without archived proceedings (or where the authors chose not to have their paper appear in the archived proceedings), or (2) venues such as arXiv where there is an explicit policy that such publication does not preclude longer conference submissions. In all such cases, the submitted manuscript may ignore the above work to preserve author anonymity. This information must, however, be provided on the submission form to the program chair.
IMPORTANT: Final camera-ready versions must be identical to the submitted papers with the following exceptions; inclusion of author names/affiliation, correction of identified errors, addressing reviewer-demanded changes. No other modifications of any kind are allowed including modification of title, change of the author list, reformatting, restyling, rephrasing, removing figures/results/text, etc. The TPC Chairs reserve the right to finally reject any manuscripts not adhering to these rules. A report detailing all the revisions made must be submitted together with the final camera-ready manuscript once any revision is conducted.
Paper templates are available at the ACM website and authors are recommended to format their papers based on the ACM template.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE
Authors will be notified of acceptance on or before Thursday, July 21, 2022. Final paper guidelines will be sent at that time.
The deadline for final papers is Monday, August 15, 2022. Accepted regular papers are allowed six pages plus one page of references in the conference proceedings free of charge. Each additional page (except references) beyond six pages is subject to the page charge at $150.00 per page up to the eight-page plus one page of references. ACM will hold the copyright for ICCAD 2022 proceedings. Authors of accepted papers must sign an ACM copyright release form for their paper.
At least one author per accepted regular paper or poster must register by Monday, August 15, 2022, at the discounted speaker’s registration rate. Failure to register will result in your paper being removed from the conference proceedings. In case of a regular paper, ACM reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from the ACM Digital Library) if the paper is not presented at the conference. Starting from this year, the presentation of a regular paper includes both an oral and a poster presentation. The mandatory poster presentation will, in addition to the regular oral presentation, further stimulate the technical discussions.
