All paper submissions will be carefully reviewed by at least three experts and reviews will be returned to the author(s) with comments to ensure the high quality of the accepted papers. The authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. Please only submit original material where copyright of all parts is owned by the authors declared and which is not currently under review elsewhere. Please see the IEEE policies for further information.

Number of accepted papers and implications

Full paper acceptance in ICSC 2017 was very competitive with an acceptance rate of 20.15 %. Moreover, all accepted full papers at ICSC 2017 were presented in single session (NOT parallel) at the main conference. Such a presentation style indeed benefited all attendees who can enjoy all full papers without switching among parallel sessions. ICSC 2018 will continue such a style to maximize the values of full papers.

Technical Paper Submission Instructions

Only electronic submission will be accepted. Technical paper authors MUST submit their manuscripts through EasyChair. Please follow this link (please register if not an EasyChair user). Manuscripts may only be submitted in PDF format.

A copyright form needs to be submitted upon acceptance of the paper and is not required at this stage.

Camera-ready Submission Instructions

Your final papers MUST be formatted to IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript Formatting Guidelines (see the following link below). It is highly recommended that you proofread and check the layout of your paper BEFORE submitting.
