*Submissions Guidelines and PROCEEDINGS*

Manuscripts should be prepared in 10-point font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11"
two-column conference format. All papers should be in PDF format, and
submitted electronically on easychair at
ences/?conf=aiccsa2018. A full paper must not exceed 8 pages (including all
figures, tables and references). Submitted papers must present original
unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other
conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines may be
rejected without review. Also submissions received after the due date,
exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be
considered. Authors may contact the Program Chair for further information
or clarification.

All submissions are blind peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers.
Accepted papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings, and be published
by the IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services and be
submitted to IEEE Xplore for inclusion.

Submission of regular papers must not exceed 8 pages. Please include up to
7 keywords, complete postal and e-mail address, and fax and phone numbers
of the corresponding author. Authors of accepted papers are expected to
present their work at the conference. Submitted papers that are deemed of
good quality but that could not be accepted as regular papers will be
accepted as short papers.

*Double-Blind Peer Review Guidelines*

AICCSA 2018 uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer
and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa,
throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure
that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their
identity or affiliation.

*Information to help prepare the Blinded Manuscript*

Besides the obvious need to remove names and affiliations under the title
within the manuscript, there are other steps that need to be taken to
ensure the manuscript is correctly prepared for double-blind peer review.
To assist with this process, the key items that need to be observed are as

• Use the third person to refer to work the Authors have previously
undertaken, e.g. replace any phrases like “as we have shown before” with “…
has been shown before [Anonymous, 2007]”.

• Make sure figures do not contain any affiliation related identifier

• Do not eliminate essential self-references or other references but limit
self-references only to papers that are relevant for those reviewing the
submitted paper.

• Cite papers published by the Author in the text as follows: ‘[Anonymous,

• For blinding in the reference list: ‘[Anonymous 2007] Details omitted for
double-blind reviewing.’

• Remove references to funding sources

• Do not include acknowledgments

• Remove any identifying information, including author names, from file
names and ensure document properties are also anonymized.

*Important Dates*

Paper Submission Due Date: March 30, 2018

Notification to authors: June 30, 2018

Camera Ready: August 1, 2018

 *Special Issues*

Selected papers from the conference will be invited to submit an extended
version to some selected journal. Journals will be announced soon. Papers
will be selected based on their reviewers’ scores and appropriateness to
the Journal’s theme. All extended versions will undergo reviews and must
represent original unpublished research work. Further details will be made
available at a later stage.
