Document Submission

Presentations are invited on, but not limited to, the tracks listed. Papers and abstracts should be submitted for review to be accepted for presentation at the conference. The full papers and extended abstracts will be double-blind reviewed by referees and research abstracts are subject to a final review by the respective Track Chair and the Program Chair. Please use Online Document Submission System to submit documents for review to be presented at the Conference and be included in the Online Proceedings. (Please do this, even if you have signed in as a user in the past years.)  (Note that signing in as a new user does not constitute registration to the conference.)

There are no formatting requirements for full paper, extended abstract or abstract submissions for review for acceptance; however, the submitted documents should not contain any author identification due to double-blind review process for acceptance of submissions. 

Full papers, extended abstracts, and abstracts that are accepted for presentation at the conference, will be published in online conference proceedings. Copyrights, however, will stay with the author(s). Documents have page limits to appear in the proceedings. For full papers, the page limit is six pages, and for (short and extended) abstracts it is two pages. There is an extra page fee of $35 per page over and above these limits. Final submission should be according to a camera-ready format.   

Submission of Camera-Ready Copy to Appear in the Conference Proceedings

When your manuscript is accepted for presentation at the conference, you will be asked to submit your camera-ready copy, which must be formatted according to the WDSI Style: for full papers, extended abstracts, and abstracts. Please upload the camera-ready copy following these instructions, at http://wdsinet.org/papers/. Please note that the camera-ready copy should not have page numbers. The abstract to be cut & pasted into the space provided (in addition to uploading your care-ready document), cannot be more than 750 characters - spaces included.
