Instructions for Authors

Submissions should be in English, in PDF format with all fonts embedded, formatted using the the IEEE conference template, found here: http://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/authors/authors_journals.html. Submissions should include author names, affiliations and acknowledgments. They should not exceed 12 letter-sized pages, not counting the bibliography and appendices. Papers should begin with a title, abstract, and an introduction that clearly summarizes the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader. Papers should contain a scholarly exposition of ideas, techniques, and results, including motivation, relevance to practical applications, and a clear comparison with related work. Committee members are not required to read appendices, and papers should be intelligible without them. Submitted papers risk being rejected without consideration of their merits if they do not follow all the above guidelines. Submissions must not substantially duplicate work that was published elsewhere, or work that any of the authors has submitted in parallel to any other conference or workshop that has proceedings.

Authors will be asked to indicate whether their submissions should be considered for the best student paper award; any paper co-authored by a full-time student is eligible for this award.

Authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. A limited number of stipends are available to those unable to obtain funding to attend the conference. Students whose papers are accepted and who will present the paper themselves are given priority to receive such assistance. Requests for stipends should be addressed to the general chair after August 10.

Full papers have to be submitted via EDAS through the following short link: http://edas.info/N8471. First, papers have to be registered, then authors can upload their papers. A successful submission can be viewed in EDAS, and a confirmation email is sent to the corresponding author. Please make sure you receive that confirmation email when you submit, and follow the directions in that email if you require any follow up.

Research In Progress (RIP)

A special category is available in the paper submission system for Research in Progress (RIP). This category allows for research that is not yet ready for publication but would be of interest to other researchers for presentation and discussion. For consideration in this category please submit an extensive abstract via the paper submission system.

RIPs have to be submitted via EDAS through the following short link: http://edas.info/N8471. First, RIPs have to be registered, then authors can upload their papers. A successful submission can be viewed in EDAS, and a confirmation email is sent to the corresponding author. Please make sure you receive that confirmation email when you submit, and follow the directions in that email if you require any follow up.

Posters

We also seek poster abstracts describing recent or ongoing research or experience in all areas related to the prevention of electronic crime. Submission of late breaking results and work in progress is especially encouraged. Posters will not be published, and thus may substantially overlap published papers or papers simultaneously submitted to a conference or journal. Submissions should follow the same formatting instructions as refereed papers, but should be at most two pages and need not be blinded or include abstracts, keywords, copyright boxes, etc.

The conference will include a poster session in which authors will exhibit their posters. Note, poster abstracts should be formatted like short papers, not like posters. Authors of accepted posters will be sent information about how to prepare and format posters for the conference.

Poster abstracts have to be submitted via EDAS through the following short link: http://edas.info/N8471. First, poster abstracts have to be registered, then authors can upload their abstracts. A successful submission can be viewed in EDAS, and a confirmation email is sent to the corresponding author. Please make sure you receive that confirmation email when you submit, and follow the directions in that email if you require any follow up.
