Paper Formatting

Technical papers submitted for ASIACCS are to be written in
English. Papers must be at most 12 pages including
bibliography. However, a maximum of 3 additional pages can be used for
well-marked appendices. Note that appendices cannot exceed 3 pages
even if the main text is less than 12 pages. Submissions must follow
the new ACM conference template, which has been updated for
2017. Submissions should not use older ACM formats or non-standard
formatting. Submissions must be in Portable Document Format
(.pdf). Authors should devote special care that fonts, images, tables
and figures comply with common standards and do not generate problems
for reviewers.

Submissions not meeting the formatting requirements risk rejection
without consideration of their merits.

Double and Concurrent Submissions

Submissions to ASIACCS 2018 must not substantially overlap with papers
that are published or simultaneously submitted to other venues
(including journals or conferences/workshops). Double-submission will
result in immediate rejection. Detected violations may be reported to
other conference chairs and journal editors.

Anonymous Submissions

ASIACCS requires double-blind reviewing process. All submissions
should be appropriately anonymized. Author names and affiliations
should not appear in the paper. The authors should avoid obvious
self-references and should appropriately blind them if used. The list
of authors cannot be changed after the acceptance decision is made
unless approved by the Program Chairs.

Ethical Considerations

The authors should take care of clarifying any potential ethical and
legal concerns to their results, highly critical vulnerabilities or
exploits, etc. The authors should provide evidence that they have
thoroughly considered such issues.

The Program Committee reserves the right to reject a submission if
insufficient evidence was presented that ethical or relevant legal
concerns were appropriately addressed.

Conflicts of Interest

The program chairs require cooperation from both authors and program
committee members to prevent submissions from being evaluated by
reviewers who may have a conflict of interest. During the submission,
authors should identify members of the program committee with whom
they have a conflict of interest. Conflict of interest includes but
not limited to: advisors and advisees (at any time in the past);
authors and PC members who share an institutional relationship;
professional collaborations (regardless of whether they resulted in a
publication) that occurred in the past 2 years; line-of-management
relationship, grant program manager, close personal relationships.

Authors are not allowed to declare conflicts of interest in order to
prevent submissions from being reviewed by selected PC
members. However, authors can contact the program chairs and provide
convincing arguments if they have certain concerns about the fair
judgement of their submissions. PC members, including chairs that have
a conflict of interest with a paper, will be entirely excluded from
the evaluation of that paper.

Submission Site and Contact

The following link is for paper submission: Please read the above submission
instructions before submitting the paper. If you have any questions,
please contact:

Camera-Ready and Conference Presentation

If a paper is accepted, the author list in submission cannot be
changed when preparing the camera-ready version. Authors of accepted
papers must also guarantee that their papers will be presented at the
conference. At least one author of the paper must be registered at the
appropriate full conference rate.

Early Rejection and Appeals

(Drawn from IEEE S&P 2016 CFP)

There will be no conventional rebuttal process. Papers that receive
substantially negative initial reviews will be rejected early. The
authors of early-rejected papers, and only such papers, will receive a
copy of their initial reviews. Authors who substantively disagree with
the reviews can appeal to the PC chairs. Authors? appeals must clearly
and explicitly identify concrete disagreements with factual statements
in the initial reviews that should be adjudicated by a special
arbitration reviewer who may be recruited by the PC chairs. Appealing
a submission that was rejected early will keep it under consideration,
and it cannot be withdrawn or resubmitted elsewhere until the final
notification of acceptance or rejection.  Contact
