Submission of regular track paper or poster paper implies the authors acknowledge the requirement of registration and attendance by at least one author at the conference. Please note the early author registration deadline to ensure that the paper appears in the proceedings.
Main Track Papers
Submissions may be up to 10 pages in length (including figures and references), formatted in two-column IEEE conference style (US Letter format) with font size no less than 10 point. All papers will be peer-reviewed by at least three members of the program committee. We will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published or accepted for publication in any other conference or journal. Accepted papers for MASCOTS 2012 will appear in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society and may be up to 8 pages in length. The program committee will choose a subset of the accepted papers to be published in extended 10 page versions. Authors of highly-ranked papers may be invited to submit extended versions of their work to appropriate IEEE or ACM journals.
Poster papers provide a forum for late-breaking or preliminary research results, giving an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present and demonstrate their recent research, and to obtain feedback from their peers in an informal setting. Material submitted as a full paper may also be submitted as a poster paper; if the full paper is accepted, the poster submission will not be considered. Poster paper submissions may be up to 2 pages in length (US Letter format), excluding references (up to one additional page), formatted as described above. Accepted poster papers will be allocated up to 3 pages in the conference proceedings (including references). Accepted poster papers must be presented with a poster during the poster session in the conference.
