ICCAD 2015 : International Conference on Computer Aided Design
Conference Series : International Conference on Computer Aided Design
Call For Papers
Paper submissions must be made through the online submission system at the ICCAD web site. Regular papers will be reviewed as finished papers; preliminary submissions will be at a disadvantage.
Authors are asked to submit their work in two stages. In stage one (abstract submission), a title, abstract, and a list of all co-authors must be submitted via the ICCAD web submission site. In stage two (paper submission), the paper itself is submitted. Authors are responsible for ensuring that their paper submission meets all guidelines, and that the PDF is readable.
Deadline for Abstract Submissions
The submission abstract deadline is 5:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time (GMT -07:00), Friday April 17, 2015. No abstract submissions will be possible after this deadline.
Deadline for Paper Submissions
The submission paper deadline is 5:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time (GMT -07:00), Friday April 24, 2015.
We always have several authors contact the ICCAD office asking for a deadline extension. Due to the limited review cycle, NO extensions are granted for ANY reason.
REGULAR PAPER SUBMISSIONS
All papers must be in PDF format only, with savable text.
Each paper must be no more than 8 pages (including the abstract, figures, tables, and references), double-columned, 9pt or 10pt font.
Your submission must not include information that serves to identify the authors of the manuscript, such as name(s) or affiliation(s) of the author(s), anywhere in the manuscript, abstract, or in the embedded PDF data. References and bibliographic citations to the author(s) own published works or affiliations should be made in the third person.
Submissions not adhering to these rules, or determined to be previously published (this includes pre-prints publicly available on personal or other websites, such as arXiv, or publicly available internal memoranda with author names divulged) or simultaneously submitted to another conference, or journal, will be summarily rejected. Internal memoranda with full content not publicly available, and with author names not divulged, may be submitted.
IMPORTANT: Final camera-ready versions must be identical to the submitted papers with the following exceptions; inclusion of author names/affiliation, correction of identified errors, addressing reviewer-demanded changes. No other modifications of any kind are allowed including modification of title, change of the author list, reformatting, restyling, rephrasing, removing figures/results/text, etc. The TPC Chairs reserve the right to finally reject any manuscripts not adhering to these rules. A report detailing all the revisions made must be submitted together with the final camera-ready manuscript once any revision is conducted.
Paper templates are available at the ICCAD website; authors are recommended to format their papers based on the templates.
NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE
Authors will be notified of acceptance on or before Monday, June 22, 2015. Final paper guidelines will be sent at that time.
The deadline for final papers is Wednesday, July 22, 2015. Accepted papers are allowed six pages in the conference proceedings free of charge. Each additional page beyond six pages is subject to the page charge at $150.00 per page up to the eight-page limit. ACM will hold the copyright for ICCAD 2015 proceedings. Authors of accepted papers must sign an ACM copyright release form for their paper.
At least one author per accepted paper must register by Friday, September 4, 2015, at the discounted speaker’s registration rate. Failure to register will result in your paper being removed from the conference proceedings. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.
ACM/IEEE WILLIAM J. MCCALLA ICCAD BEST PAPER AWARD
Two papers, one from front-end and one from back-end, will be awarded with this prestigious award. The winners will be chosen from nominated papers after a thorough and competitive process by area-specific selection committees and announced at the opening session.
ICCAD TEN-YEAR RETROSPECTIVE MOST INFLUENTIAL PAPER AWARD
One paper from 2005 and 2006 editions of ICCAD will be selected for this outstanding recognition as evidenced by impact on the research community reflected in citations, on the vendor community via its use in an industrial setting, or by initiating new research venues during the past decade. Nominations from the community are welcome and can be sent to Sri Parameswaran, Technical Program Vice-Chair at firstname.lastname@example.org.
