Instructions for Authors
---------------------------------------

eCrime has adopted the IEEE publication format. Submissions should be in 
English, in PDF format with all fonts embedded, formatted using the the 
IEEE conference template, found here: 
http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html. 
Submissions should include author names, affiliations and 
acknowledgments. They should not exceed 12 letter-sized pages, not 
counting the bibliography and appendices. Papers should begin with a 
title, abstract, and an introduction that clearly summarizes the 
contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist 
reader. Papers should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, 
techniques, and results, including motivation, relevance to practical 
applications, and a clear comparison with related work. Committee 
members are not required to read appendices, and papers should be 
intelligible without them. Submitted papers risk being rejected without 
consideration of their merits if they do not follow all the above 
guidelines. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that was 
published elsewhere, or work that any of the authors has submitted in 
parallel to any other conference or workshop that has proceedings.

Authors will be asked to indicate whether their submissions should be 
considered for the best student paper award; any paper co-authored by a 
full-time student is eligible for this award.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be 
presented at the conference. A limited number of stipends are available 
to those unable to obtain funding to attend the conference. Students 
whose papers are accepted and who will present the paper themselves are 
given priority to receive such assistance. Requests for stipends should 
be addressed to the general chair after March 3rd.

For paper submissions in 2017 please register an account then use the 
New Submission option at https://ecrime17.hotcrp.com/.
