Editorial Policies
Author No-Show Policy
IEEE TechSym 2011 enforces a "no show" policy. Any accepted paper included in the final program is expected to have at least one author attend and present the paper at the symposium. Authors of the accepted papers included in the final program who do not attend the symposium will be subscribed to a "No Show List", compiled by the Organizers. The "no-show" papers will be removed from the Master CD and noted as "Author unavailable for presentation" prior to submitting to IEEE for inclusion in Xplore. The "No Show List" will also be made available to all IEEE conference organizers, who may reject submissions from these authors in the following two years, based on their past negative impact on any IEEE conference.

Double blind review
Reviewing of submissions for IEEE TechSym 2011 is double blind, in which authors do not know the identities of the reviewers of their papers, and reviewers do not know the identities of the authors. Authors are suggested to avoid providing information that may identify them in the acknowledgments (e.g., co-workers and grant IDs) and in the supplemental material (e.g., titles in the movies, or attached papers). Reviewers are suggested to follow fair blind reviewing techniques in submitting comments to an authors' paper. Avoid providing links to websites that identify the authors or reviewers. Violation of any of these guidelines will lead to rejection of the submission without review.

Non-Duplicacy of Submission
By submitting a manuscript to IEEE TechSym 2011, the authors guarantee that it has not been previously published (or accepted for publication) in a substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper either is under review at the moment of submission or will be submitted during the review period to any other symposium, conference, workshop, or journal. The authors also attest that they have not submitted substantially similar submissions to any of the tracks in IEEE TechSym 2011. Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection.

Integrity of Submission
Title of the submission, abstract, author name(s) and their ordering entered into the system during initial submission (before submission deadline) will be retained throughout the symposium, with no scope of reflecting changes made even during camera ready submission. Any changes to on these information without prior approval of the Track Chair will lead to disqualification and outright rejection of an accepted submission from presentation at the symposium.

IEEE Policy on Nondiscrimination
IEEE prohibits discrimination, harassment, and bullying. Read more

Authors' responsibilities
If there are papers that may appear to violate any of these conditions, authors' are suggested to
  • cite these papers (preserving anonymity criteria),
  • substantiate with statements in the body of the paper about how the submission is non trivially different from other concurrent submissions, and
  • include anonymized versions of such papers in the supplemental material
