C3S2E'13-PW Call for Graduate Student posters, Workshop Papers



C3S2E'2013[*] is the sixth in a series of annual international conferences addressing the needs of the academic community in computing science and software engineering. Please see the main site for complete description of this event. This is a call for graduate student posters and workshop papers.


Call For Student Poster Papers


C3S2E'13 calls for poster papers from graduate students in Computer Science and Software Engineering. Student authors are invited to submit papers in English, reporting on their work in progress. The submission must be original and could be co:authored with the supervisor. However, the student author of an accepted poster is expected to participate fully in C3S2E'13 and prepare a short oral presentation to be given at a scheduled time during the C3s2E meeting in July. There would be a reduced registration fee for poster student authors,


Call for Workshop Papers


C3S2E'13-PW calls for Workshop Papers: These are papers describing work in progress and would be reviewed. There is no restrictions on the authorship of a workshop paper. Workshop paper submissions which are accepted would be published as short paper. Exceptionally good submissions may be accepted as full paper.

Submission Guidelines


The submissions for review should be prepared using the ACM format. Prepare the submission to be as close to the final version as possible. The page limit for the final version would be as follows:

Poster paper: 2 pages (could purchase one extra pages)
Workshop paper: 5 pages (could purchase one extra pages)

Consult the ACM sample etc., in the author guide and consult the samples for the final versions given in the right margin and "How to Final Paper" given in the left margin of this page.


The upload to ConfSys should be in PDF format. Please do not use any special characters or foreign language fonts. Reviewers may not be able to open such documents. Please observe the following:



Please see the guides and samples given in the right margins.



Submissions must be original. The work cannot have been published previously or be pending publication in another forum and submissions cannot be under review by any other forum.


It is expected that all authors accept the following statement:


This paper (or a similar version) is not currently under review by a journal or conference, nor will it be submitted to such until the result of this review has been communicated. Furthermore, the author(s) agree to abide by the decision of the Program chairs and would participate in the meeting should the paper be accepted.

The author who submits a paper is expected to inform all co:authors of the submission and has their approval.

Authors should submit only papers that have been carefully proof-read and polished. Papers that are clearly unacceptable will be returned by the editor without being reviewed. Authors must clearly acknowledge the contributions of their predecessors.

Submissions will be evaluated on their originality and significance.


Though a group of authors may submit multiple papers, we expect that each paper would be presented by a separate co:author to allow for a wider point of views during the presentations and discussions. The authors are expected to upload the paper in PDF format.


PDF format Guidelines


At a minimum, basic PDF distiller settings MUST be changed so PDF files are: optimized, set to Acrobat 4.0 compatibility, all graphics are set to at least 300 dpi resolution, ALL fonts used must be embeddable. Please see Embedding Fonts for details. Some font manufacturers now flag their fonts to not embed: these fonts should be avoided. Postscript settings SHOULD NOT override distiller settings and page size is 612.0 x 792.0 points (8.5 " x 11"). Authors should check their final PDF files before submission to verify that all fonts have been properly embedded and subset. Please DO NOT USE type 1 (bitmapped) fonts; they do not display correctly in most PDF readers.


One of the authors of each accepted paper is expected to present the paper in person.
