ACM SOCC 2011 Submission Instructions

Take me to the SOCC'11 submission site now.

If you a question about these instructions, please ask socc11-chairs at cs.duke dot edu.

Deadline: the submission deadline is April 30, 2011, at midnight Eastern US time (11:59:59 PM EDT). There is an automatic 12-hour grace period to modify papers registered by the deadline: registered papers may be modified until noon EDT on Sunday 5/1/11. No further extensions can be granted: please do not ask! Submit early: your submission may be modified until noon EDT on 5/1/11.

We are using the HotCRP review system. You will be asked to create an account with some identifying information. Save your confirmation e-mail: you will also use it to retrieve your reviews.

Your contact information will be used to notify you of news pertaining to this event and future events, but will not be shared beyond the conference organizers. All submissions will be held in confidence except as required for the reviewing process.

You will receive a confirmation by e-mail that your paper has been submitted. If you do not receive a confirmation, then your paper might not be reviewed.

We are accepting only submissions in PDF format. Please contact the program chairs if this constraint is a hardship.

Please follow guidelines in the Call for Papers, and standard practice. Here is a summary of the particulars:

  • Submit a PDF document with standard 8.5x11 inch pages.
  • Font for paper body is 9pt or larger, per ACM standards.
  • Margins are reasonable, per ACM standards.
  • ACM templates requested but not required.
  • Page limits include all figures and references.
  • Page limit is 12 pages for research papers, 6 pages for short papers (see below).
  • Papers may include an optional appendix outside the page limit.
  • All content beyond the page limit may be ignored by reviewers at their discretion.
  • Please number your pages.
  • Reviewing is single-blind: author identities are not concealed.
  • Paper title, authors, and abstract on page 1 should match the submission form.
  • Please do not submit previously published material.
  • Please do not submit material for simultaneous review in multiple forums.
  • Please do not attempt to impose nondisclosure forms or conditions.
  • Use standard fonts, or include fonts.
  • At least one author of each accepted paper will attend the event.
Short papers are categorized as position papers or industry papers. The position paper category is intended primarily for new research directions and early-stage research. The industry paper category can be used for any kind of experience paper or technology paper with interesting engineering lessons derived from deployment experience. The choice of category is not essential: the Program Committee will consider short papers in a suitable way based on their content. Short papers will be selected based on their overall quality and likely interest to the greater cloud computing research community.
