A limited number of original contributed papers covering unpublished work will be accepted for presentation. Authors are required to submit papers including 35-word abstracts and 2-page manuscripts in the prescribed form. The form can be downloaded from the conference website. Papers must be submitted online. Please see the ODF'18 website for details of the submission procedure. Authors are required to agree to copyright transfer by including a completed form when submitting papers.
35-word Abstracts
35-word abstracts in an ASCII text file are strictly required and the program committee may automatically modify the abstract that contains over 50 words. Please confirm the number of words using a word counting tool. Also, please avoid the use of scientific and engineering symbols in the abstract. If your paper is accepted, the abstract will appear in the Advanced Program.
2-page Manuscripts
2-page camera-ready manuscripts including text, figures, tables and references must be typed single-spaced on A4 or letter size pages with the title followed by the author’s name, affiliation, and address. Accepted papers will be published in the Technical Digest of the conference. For the layout of the manuscript, please see the guidelines on the ODF'18 website (to be opened this early November).
