Submission Instruction for CANDAR Main Tracks

(This page shows instruction for CANDAR main symposium. Please see Workshop Submission)

Paper Submission Guidelines

We are seeking papers that present original and unpublished research results and experiences. Submissions will be evaluated based on their originality, timeliness, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the symposium proceedings. To submit a paper, prospective authors are encouraged to first submit the plain text of their abstract by the CANDAR abstract submission deadline. Following that, authors should submit a PDF of the paper for review by the CANDAR paper submission deadline, using EasyChair. Authors can modify their submitted PDF until the CANDAR paper submission deadline. Reviewers will be assigned based on the submitted titles and abstracts. If you don't have an EasyChair account, you must create one first.

To submit a paper, authors must log in to EasyChair as an author and select the 'New Submission' option from the menu. From there, they should choose the appropriate track for their submission and click the 'Continue' button.

Paper Format For Review

It is essential that authors carefully review the Paper Format For Review guidelines before submitting their papers. Any paper that does not meet the required paper format may be rejected without review.

Review as workshop papers

If a paper is rejected by the CANDAR main symposium, the authors have the option to have their paper reviewed as a workshop paper instead. To do so, when submitting their paper through EasyChair, they should check the box labeled Want to be reviewed as workshop paper if rejected. If selected, workshop organizers will review the paper. Note that it is not necessary to submit papers directly to the workshops, as rejected papers will be automatically redirected to the appropriate workshop organizers. Selecting this option will not affect the decision of accept/rejection for the CANDAR main symposium. If a paper submitted to the main symposium is accepted as a workshop paper, it must be revised to meet the workshop paper page limitation.

Corresponding Authors

Notifications regarding paper acceptance or rejection, as well as reviewers' comments, will be sent only to the corresponding authors via email. Therefore, while submitting a paper through EasyChair, it is recommended to select the authors who wish to receive the notification and the reviewers' comments as corresponding authors.

No Show Policy

It is required that at least one author registers for each paper and presents the work at the symposium. Papers that are not presented by the author(s) (also known as “no-show papers”) will be removed from the IEEE digital library, even if the speaker registration fee has been paid.
