Submission Guidelines

Submissions for technical papers must describe original research, not published or currently under review for other workshops, conferences, journals, or magazines.

All papers will be reviewed by the program committee members for novelty and originality of the contribution. The conference accepts full and short papers. Short papers may represent less mature work than full papers, or may contain new ideas to be further developed in future research. Full papers should be more complete in their treatment of the topic. Paper submission will be handled electronically.

Authors should prepare a PDF version of their papers. The page limit for full papers is 8 pages, and that for short papers is 5 pages in standard ACM conference format.

In addition, position papers with 2-page extended abstracts (in standard ACM conference format) can be submitted for, e.g., for fast dissemination of interesting intermediate results of undergoing research, promising progresses, educational overview on the state of the art in this field, and insightful analysis of the historical or futuristic developments on various underwater topics. Full- and short-paper submissions that are not accepted may be recommended to be accepted as position papers (2-page extended abstracts).

Please see the conference website for submission details,definitive formatting guidelines and sample templates. All accepted papers and extended abstracts are subject to the deadlines specified below and will be included in the conference proceedings.
