Papers should be written in English and can be submitted in the following categories:
- Regular Papers (up to 8 pages), which describe ongoing work, new ideas or experiences, and
- Position Papers (up to 4 pages).
Submissions must adhere to the IEEE Computer Society camera-ready 8.5" x 11" two-column camera-ready format. This format includes 10 point font on 12 point spacing for body text, and other details described in the author guidelines below. Pages must be numbered. The templates are reproduced below for your convenience, and further details can be found here.
Each paper must be submitted as a single Portable Document Format (PDF) file. We recommend that you embed fonts where possible to improve portability. We also strongly recommend you print the file and review it for integrity (fonts, symbols, equations etc.) before submitting it. A defective printing of your paper can undermine its chance of success.
Papers will be evaluated by the Program Committee according to the following criteria:
- The relevance of the submitted work to aims and scope of the workshop;
- The originality and significance of the results, which may be their likely impact on an application area, or their contribution to the understanding of dependability for adaptive and evolving systems;
- The thoroughness of the study, and the methodology of the research. This includes the quality of conclusions drawn from the experimental results, and how well the data supports those conclusions. Is there something about the approach to this problem that invalidates the results?
- The quality of writing, including organization, clarity, and style.
