Early registration deadline
The 2011 ESSCIRC/ESSDERC conferences will only allow electronic submission of papers in PDF format.
Guidelines for paper submission
Detailed submission guidelines, paper templates and submission instructions can be found at the submission web site.
All papers must be submitted in the final format to be published in the proceedings. They must not exceed four A4 pages with all illustrations and references included. The size of the PDF files submitted should not exceed 2MBytes.
Papers submitted for review must clearly state:
• The purpose of the work
• How and to what extent it advances the state-of-the-art
• Specific results and their impact
The degree to which the paper deals with the above issues is fundamental to a successful review and selection of the paper. The most frequent cause of rejections of submitted papers is a lack of new results. Only work that has not been previously published at the time of the conference will be considered. Duplicated submissions to concurrent conferences should be avoided.
Submission of a paper for review and subsequent acceptance is considered as a commitment that the work will not be placed in the public domain prior to the conference.
Paper selection and notification of acceptance
All papers will be reviewed and ranked by the corresponding Technical Program Committee: ESSCIRC papers by the ESSCIRC TPC and ESSDERC papers by the ESSDERC TPC.
The authors will be informed about the decision by e-mail. At the same time, the complete program will be published at the conference website.
Fringe poster sessions
During ESSCIRC/ESSDERC a Fringe Poster Session will be held alongside the main conference and is designed primarily to introduce young engineers, scientists and students to the ESSDERC/CIRC conference series. The forum is ideally suited for the submissions of recent progress which may, in some cases, not be ready for a full paper submission.
The format for fringe poster papers is the same as for regular papers, but the deadline and submission sites for fringe poster contributions are different to those for regular papers. Please refer to the conference web page for instructions.
