PAPER SUBMISSION

Submission Guidelines

Submitted papers must be original, unpublished, anonymous, and must not be submitted in parallel to other journals or conferences/workshops that have proceedings.  They must be written in English using the new ACM conference template (i.e., the ACM Standard version sigconf.tex) and submitted in PDF format.  Submissions using non-standard formatting risk rejection without consideration.

As laid out in detail the call for papers, ASHES offers four different categories of papers, each with its own format:

  • Full papers, with up to 10 pages in ACM double column format (including references and appendices).
  • Short papers, with up to 6 pages in ACM double column format (including references and appendices).
  • Wild and crazy (WaC) papers, with 3 to 6 pages in ACM double column format, with additional appendices and references of up to 6 pages.  Wild and crazy papers must bear the prefix “WaC:” in their title from the submission onwards.
  • Systematization of knowledge (SoK) papers, with up to 12 pages in ACM double column format (including appendices and references).  Systematization of knowledge papers must bear the prefix “SoK:” in the title from the submission onwards.

One of the authors of each accepted paper must present the paper at the workshop. Accepted papers will be published in the online proceedings through the ACM Digital Library.

Please submit via the submission website (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ashes2017), and declare any conflicts of interest with PC members via e-mail to ashes2017@easychair.org, as explained below.

 

Conflicts of Interest

By definition, a author has a conflict of interest (CoI) with a PC member if and only if one or more of the following conditions holds:

  • The PC member is a co-author of the paper.
  • The PC member has been a co-worker in the same company or university within the past two years.
  • The PC member has been a collaborator within the past two years.
  • The PC member is or was the author’s primary thesis advisor, no matter how long ago.
  • The author is or was the PC member’s primary thesis advisor, no matter how long ago.
  • The PC member is a relative or close personal friend of the author.

Authors are asked to declare any such CoIs in an e-mail to ashes2017@easychair.org before the submission deadline has passed.

It is the joint responsibility of all authors of a paper to declare any CoIs with any PC members. Papers with incorrect or incomplete CoI information risk rejection without consideration.
