SPAA 2014 Submission Guidelines

Contact information

You may contact the SPAA secretary with questions about the electronic submissions process when other avenues fail.

Please do not ask him to help you with system-specific problems, such as those with Latex, PDF, or your web browser. Such questions are best addressed to your system administrator or support staff.

Submission format

Submitted manuscripts may not exceed ten (10) single-spaced double-column pages for regular papers and two (2) single-spaced double-column pages for brief announcements, using 9-point size font on 8.5x11 inch pages, including figures, tables, and references. See (Option 2) for details, including the sig-alternate.cls style file and a sample file. Additional details may be added in a clearly marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the program committee.

Please indicate in the title of your manuscript whether this is a regular paper or a brief announcement. If requested by the authors, a manuscript that is not selected as a regular paper will also be considered for the SPAA brief announcements. Such a request will not affect the chances of the manuscript to be accepted as a regular paper.

Submission process
