Paper Submission Instructions

Thanks for your interest in IMC 2004. To submit a paper, you will need to complete the following 3 simple steps. Please follow the instructions carefully to avoid any problems with the handling of your paper.

Step 1: Paper/Abstract Registration. Register your paper at the IMC 2004 Paper Submission Web Site. You must do this by 23:00 EDT, May 7, 2004.

Step 2: Paper Requirements

Please make sure that your paper satisfies ALL of the following requirements before being submitted:

  • The paper must be registered (see Step 1 above).
  • The paper must be original material that has not been previously published nor is currently under review by another conference or journal.
  • Tha paper must have an abstract of under 250 words.
  • The paper must conform with the page limits given in the Call for Papers: (html, pdf) at most 6 pages for extended abstracts and at most 14 pages for full papers.
  • Paper format:
    • Two-column, 10 point serif font (or higher) used for the main text body.
    • Margins and layout according to this Sample Postscript Paper (Sample PDF Paper), taken from INFOCOM 2002. For Latex2e, we have a cls class file, a sample input file, a sample bibliography file, and the whole thing as a gzip'd tar archive. Note that when using the class file, you must specify \documentclass[twocolumn,10pt]{infocom} at the beginning of your Latex source file. You can also get formatting templates for MSWord.
    • Formatted for black-and-white printers and not color printers. This is especially true for plots and graphs in the paper.
    • Please number the pages.
    • Along with the names of the authors, the front page should indicate both of the following:
      • the paper ID number, which is the login password assigned during the paper registration process (see step 1 above).
      • the total number of pages in the submission.
    • Please make sure that the output has been formatted for printing on LETTER size paper. If generating a Postscript file using "dvips", use the option "-t letter".
  • The paper must be submitted in Postscript or PDF format. We cannot accept any other format, and we must be able to print the document just as we receive it.

Step 3: Paper Submission

Submit your paper (in Postscript or PDF format, as described above) via the IMC 2004 Paper Submission Web Site . You must do this by 23:00 EDT, May 14, 2004.

The paper must be submitted electronically, and the process must be completed by the 23:00 EDT, May 14, 2004 deadline. This is a hard deadline.

If you have any questions, please contact Jim Kurose via email.
