Duplicate Submissions Policy

A paper submitted to COMAD 2014 cannot be under review for any other conference or journal and has to be substantially different from previously published work. Authors submitting papers to the COMAD conference are expected to agree to the following terms:

"I understand that the paper being submitted must not contain substantial overlap with any other paper currently submitted elsewhere. Furthermore, previously published papers with any overlap are cited prominently in this submission."

Duplicate submissions will be rejected. Questions about this policy or how it applies to your work should be directed to the program chairs.

Copyright Information

Authors of accepted papers will need to sign a publisher's copyright release form and present their paper at the conference. The proceedings will be released shortly after the camera-ready copy date, so any patent applications should be made before then.

Both submissions for refereeing and final copy for the proceedings must be laid out according to the Camera Ready Copy format described below. It is the author's responsibility to make the paper readable, relevant and interesting before submission for consideration by referees. This includes legibility of diagrams and quality of English.
