On-line Paper Submission
Please register and submit your paper at http://systems.cs.colorado.edu/SENSYS2003/CRP/All/login.php.
You must register your paper by April 1, 2003, and must submit the
full paper by April 8, 2003 (Midnight PST). Note that the submission
server shows the deadlines in Mountain Standard Time, which is 1
hour ahead of PST (so, for example, the submission deadline is shown
as April 9, 2003, 1AM on the server). These deadlines are firm barring
problems out of our control.
Submitted papers must meet the following requirements:
- No concurrent submissions: Other similar papers
based on the same material must not be concurrently under review
for any other publication (journal, magazine, conference, sympisum,
workshop, or any other technical meeting with published proceedings).
- No prior publications: The papers must be based
on original material that has not been previously published (or
accepted for publication) at any journal, magazine, conference,
sympisum, workshop, or any other technical meeting with published
Papers violating the above requirements will be rejected irrespective
of the quality of the technical content, even if such violations
are discovered after an initial notification of acceptance. Moreover,
in case of concurrent submissions, the chairs or editors of the
other conferene or publication will also be informed of this violation.
Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an ACM copyright release
form and present their paper at the conference. The Proceedings
of the conference will be published by ACM Press and distributed
at the conference; copies of the Proceedings will also be available
for sale after the conference.
Please be sure your paper is formatted properly for submisison.
In particular, please note the following format requirements:
- Your submission must be in either PDF (preferred) or PostScript
format. We cannot handle other strange formats such as Microsoft
Word. Whatever text processor or formatter you use to write your
paper (LaTeX, Microsoft Word, FrameMaker, etc.), please convert
the output to PDF or PostScript before submission. Under Windows,
for example, PDF files can be produced using the Adobe Acrobat
product, and PostScript files can be produced using any Windows
PostScript printer driver and checking the "Print to file"
box in the "Print" window.
- Your submission must be correctly formatted to fit on U.S. "Letter"
size paper, which is 8.5 inches wide by 11 inches tall.
Please be sure you have a reasonable margin (such as 1 inch)
on all edges (top, bottom, left, and right) of each page. Under
Windows, for example, in the "Page Setup" window,
please select "Letter" (e.g., not "A4") for
the paper size, and please set your margins appropriately for
this paper size; also select "Letter" for paper size
in the printer options (click on "Properties" from the
"Print" window). Under Unix, if you are using "dvips"
to produce PostScript, please be sure the paper size is set correctly
(specify "-t letter" to force the paper size).
- Paper submissions must be limited to 15 pages, including
text, figures, and referecnes in single-column, single-space format.
The font size used in the text of your submission must be no smaller
than 10 points.
- As described in the Call for Papers,
all papers will be judged through double-blind reviewing, where
the identities of the authors are withheld from the reviewers.
Please be sure your name does not appear on the paper or in the
submitted PDF or PostScript file. This means that before submission,
you must remove from the paper the authors' names, authors' affiliations,
names of collaborators, acknowledgements of funding sources, etc.
Also, be careful how you refer to your own prior work in the paper.
For example, do not describe your prior work with phrases like:
"In prior work, we presented a routing protocol that ....".
Instead, refer to your work in the third person, such as "In
prior work, Smith presented a routing protocol that .... ".
- We must be able to print your paper once it is submitted. Due
to the large variety of systems available for formatting papers
and producing PDF or PostScript, this is not always possible for
some systems. To maximize the chances that your paper will print
correctly, please use only standard printer fonts (e.g., Times
Roman, Helvetica, etc.); other fonts may be used but must be embedded
in the PDF or PostScript file. In particular, we request authors
from East Asian countries to ensure that any Korean, Chinese,
or other East Asian fonts are embedded in the PDF or Postscript
