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We solicit the submission of research and application papers (8 pages) representing original, previously unpublished work.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

Simultaneous submission of the same work to multiple venues, submission of previously published work, or plagiarism constitutes dishonesty or fraud. ARES and associated workshops, like other scientific and technical conferences and journals, prohibits these practices and may take action against authors who have committed them. To avoid accepting papers which are not presenting original work your paper will be plagiarism checked by  PlagScan Plagarism Check. If you don’t want your paper to be checked automatically please contact us at chair[at]ectcm[dot]net.

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 (double blind review), 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.


The proceedings of ARES 2015 and its associated workshops will be published by  Conference Publishing Services (CPS).
