SPAA 2018 Submission Guidelines

Submission format

Manuscripts submitted for review must use a single-spaced double-column format for 8.5x11-inch paper, use at least a 9-point font size, and have reasonable margins and spacing throughout. Submissions may, but are not required to, adopt the final ACM sigconf format from Regular papers may not exceed ten (10) pages and brief announcements may not exceed two (2) pages. References and the appendix do not count toward the limit, but everything else does. All necessary details to substantiate the main claims of the paper should be included either in the body of the paper or in a clearly marked appendix.

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

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.
