Paper Submission Guidelines

CoNEXT requires that papers not be submitted simultaneously to any other conference or publication, and that submissions not be previously published. Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an ACM copyright release form. Electronic copies of the camera-ready papers will be published on the conference web site before the conference, unless authors specifically request that this not be done.

To submit papers to the CoNEXT 2007 conference, please read formatting guidelines on this page and make sure that your submission complies with the requirements.
Then go to the paper submission site to:

These are hard deadlines and no extensions will be given.
In case of problems with the paper submission site you can contact conext2007@co-next.net

Formatting Guidelines

All submissions must follow strictly the format and size constraints indicated below. Your goal as an author is to produce a clearly readable submission within these constraints. Please refrain from exceeding these limits, because longer submissions and/or papers with modified margins or fonts will not be reviewed.

We will use an automatic tool that checks if your submitted paper violates the following guidelines. This automated PDF-checker tool is integrated into our web conference management system. After you upload your paper, you can use it yourself. The tool will tell you whether or not you pass a variety of checks. If you fail the basic tests, please correct your paper and upload a new version. This tool will be used as a guideline to identify non-conforming papers. No paper will be rejected due to format violations without being hand checked first.

  • Submissions MUST be no more than twelve (12) pages in 10 point Times Roman (or equivalent font). This length includes everything: figures, tables, references, appendices and so forth.
  • Submissions MUST follow ACM guidelines: double column, with each column 9.25" by 3.33", 0.33" space between columns.
  • NOTE: For the submission, you are strongly encouraged to use the modified 10pt ACM SIG-alternate latex template available here.
  • Provide an abstract of fewer than 200 words.
  • Number the pages.
  • On the front page, indicate the authors' names and affiliation and the paper ID number assigned during the paper registration process and the total number of pages in the submission.
  • The paper MUST be submitted in PDF format. Other formats (including Postscript) will not be accepted. We must be able to display and print your submission exactly as we receive it, using only standard tools (Adobe Acrobat Reader), with no loading of special fonts.
  • Make sure that the paper prints well on black-and-white printers, not color printers. This is especially true for plots and graphs in the paper.
  • Make sure that the output has been formatted for printing on LETTER (8.5" by 11") size paper.
  • Make sure that symbols and labels used in the graphs are readable as printed, and not only with a 20x on-screen magnification.
  • Try to limit the file size to less than 15 MB.
