Instructions for Authors

CEE-SECR 2011 invites submissions in two categories:

• Full academic papers, up to 10 pages long, compliant with the article template available for download from http://cee-secr.org/templates/. Upon acceptance, papers in this category will have to be formatted and submitted in a camera-ready format for publication.

• Short abstract of the presentation, up to 2 pages long, describing results or user experiences that are important to share with the community. Upon acceptance, submissions in this category will have to be provided as a slide deck to be presented at the conference.

Please submit your proposals for papers, presentations, and topics for roundtables and workshops via the submission engine at https://cmt.research.microsoft.com/SECR2011/.

An international Program Committee will review submissions for quality and relevance, and the author will be notified of the Committee’s decision by email.

Academic papers can be written either in English or in Russian; however, each paper must include an abstract in both languages.

Presentation abstracts must be written in both English and Russian.

If necessary, the Program Committee will assist English-speaking authors in translating their abstracts into Russian.

Please remove all instances of authors’ names/affiliation from the submitted papers, as they will undergo double-blind review. Authors’ names/affiliations will be added only to camera-ready versions of accepted articles.

All accepted papers will be distributed at the conference on a flash drive. Academic papers submitted in English will be published in the IEEE electronic library.

Following the conference, the Program Committee will select the 10 best academic papers for inclusion in a special issue of the Software Engineering magazine (Russian).

One free pass per accepted paper will be given to the speaker making the presentation.

A paper submitted to the conference will be considered to be a duplicate submission and rejected without regard to the paper’s merit if there is substantial overlap in the technical content of the conference submission and any other work that is:

under review at another publication, or
has been accepted by another publication, or
has appeared in another publication at any time prior to the completion of the conference review process.
Program Committee

The CEE-SECR 2011 Conference Program Committee includes highly recognized international and domestic experts from both industry and academia. A complete list of Program Committee members is available at: http://cee-secr.org/conference/committees-2/.
