REGULAR TRACK, PHD FORUM AND DEMO NIGHT
The authors must make the submissions through Easychair.
The submission step may require the submitting author to create an account with the submission system. Depending on whether you are already logged into the system or not, when you click on the above link, you may go directly to the submission page or to the author console page to start your submission; you will need to click on the “Create new submission” button.
After the abstract submission deadline, the author list and order entered in the system cannot be changed anymore.
Submitted papers must follow the IEEE double column format.
Regular track papers must be limited to 6 pages plus references (i.e. the references do not count in the 6 pages; and references must not exceed two pages). This is a strict limit, and papers exceeding this limit will be rejected automatically.
PhD Forum papers must not exceed two pages and Demo Night abstract must not exceed one page (including all references).
(Only for Regular track) Submitted papers may be accepted as full or short papers. Papers accepted as full papers will appear in the proceedings as 6 pages papers plus up to 2 pages of references. Short papers (posters) will have 4 pages plus up to 2 pages of references in the proceedings.
Non-anonymous preprints (on arXiv, social media, websites, etc.) are permitted. Reviewers will be instructed not to look for such preprints actively, but encountering them will not constitute a conflict of interest. Authors may submit work already available as a preprint (e.g., on arXiv) without citing it; however, previously published papers by the authors on related topics must be cited (with adequate anonymization to preserve double-blind reviewing).
Authors are required to use the standard IEEE templates in format A4 and not to include page numbers.
Templates are available directly from IEEE (https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html).
All contributions must be submitted electronically in PDF format.
FPL 2023 uses a double-blind reviewing system. Manuscripts must not identify authors or their affiliations; those that do will not be considered. References to the authors’ prior work should be made in the 3rd person, in the same way one would reference work by others. If necessary to maintain anonymity, citations may be shown as “Removed for blind review”.
The Journal Track is specifically intended for original contributions (i.e, no conference-paper extensions are allowed) that would benefit from the longer articles possible in TRETS (up to 32 ACM-style single-column pages), e.g., for clearer presentation of complex research, or an in-depth discussion of comprehensive results.
When you decide to submit to the Journal Track, you will use the TRETS submission system to submit to the “FPL 2023 Journal Track” (which you can select after logging into your TRETS account), and then follow the TRETS Author Guidelines.
