Submission Guidelines

Submissions to ACII 2019 should not have substantial overlap with any other paper already submitted or published, or to be submitted during the ACII 2019 review period. All persons who have made any substantial contribution to the work should be listed as authors, and all listed authors should have made some substantial contribution to the work. All authors should be aware of the paper being submitted to ACII 2019.
Proceedings will be published on IEEExplore. IEEE CS is a technical co-sponsor of ACII 2019. If a paper is accepted, it is assumed that an author will register and attend the conference to present the paper. The conference and IEEE reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference, including IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, if the paper is not presented by the author at the conference.
The reviewing process for ACII 2019 will be “double blind”, thus the submitted version of the paper should be appropriately anonymized not to reveal either the authors’ identities or institutions.
The submission process will be handled through the EasyChair System. Submissions may be up to 7 pages (6 pages + 1 page for references) in the conference paper format. Submissions must be in pdf format, are limited to a 10MB file size, and must be in final, publishable form by the submission deadline. Papers that use different formatting from the ACII 2019 Latex or Word templates, have more than 7 pages, or explicitly reveal identifying information about the authors will be automatically removed from the reviewing process.
Supplementary material (images, video, etc.) may optionally be submitted with papers, must be submitted as a single zip file and be no larger than 100MB. Be sure to maintain anonymity, including the file properties or other hidden text. The supplemental materials will not be part of the conference proceedings, so they are only there to aid the reviewing process. Reviewers are not required to view the supplemental material (though most reviewers are likely to do so), so any information critical to understanding the work should be in the main paper.
ACII 2019 will be using the IEEE PDF eXpress for enforcing the requirements for papers to appear in IEEE Xplore. The final versions of all papers accepted for publication must adhere to the IEEE Xplore PDF specifications.
