Submission Guidelines

Authors are invited to submit papers in Conference Publishing Services (CPS) Proceedings Manuscripts style (two columns, single-spaced, including figures and references, using 10 pt fonts, and number each page). Please consult the  CPS Author Guidelines for more information!

We solicit the submission of research and application papers (8 pages) representing original, previously unpublished work. Submitted papers will be evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of exposition. We also encourage submission of work in progress (currently not finished and/or evaluated) to get feedback and discussions on new research ideas.

Duplicate submissions are not allowed. A submission is considered to be a duplicate submission if it has been submitted to (or if it has been already accepted to be published in) other conferences/workshops/journals. Duplicate submissions thus will be automatically rejected without review.

Contact author must provide the following information: Paper title, authors' names, affiliations, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of the author(s), about 200-250 word abstract, and about five keywords. Paper registration and submission is done through the  ARES Paper Management System.

Submission of a paper implies that should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register for the ARES conference and present the paper in the workshop. Guidelines in preparing and submitting the final manuscript(s) will be given after the notification of acceptance.

This workshop requires anonymized submissions, so please make sure that submitted papers contain neither author names nor affiliations. Papers should avoid revealing their authors identity in the text. When referring to your previous work, do so in the third person, as though it were written by someone else.


All accepted papers of ARES 2013 and associated workshops were published as ISBN proceedings published by  IEEE Conference Publishing Services (CPS)
