Submission Guidelines

The CEWIT2011 conference and the CEWIT-WWHI joint symposium are primarily interested in serving as a venue for the discussion of technical contributions highlighting end-to-end technical solutions, applications and systems, even if available only in prototype form. Therefore, we strongly encourage authors to submit abstracts (up to two pages) describing their contributions in an application-oriented context.

Each abstract will be evaluated by program committee members and external reviewers, including experts with multidisciplinary experience. Submissions will be judged on validity, originality, technical strength, practical significance, quality of presentation, and relevance to the conference topics. We encourage submissions from a variety of fields where in-depth application-centric ideas addressing important challenges related to the conference theme are discussed.

Please submit your abstract electronically at Authors of accepted abstracts will be required to submit a full paper to be included in the conference proceedings. Please follow the formatting instructions provided on our website.

Important Dates

Abstract Submission Deadline: July 1, 2011
Notification of Acceptance: August 1, 2011
Camera-Ready Paper & Presentation Materials: September 1, 2011

The CEWIT2011 conference and the CEWIT-WWHI joint symposium will be held at the Hyatt Regency Long Island, a resort-like retreat offering an escape from New York City while being in the heart of the action. From the hotel’s secluded setting just off the Long Island Expressway, you can tour area wineries, kick back on Jones Beach or Fire Island, gaze at incredible homes in the Hamptons or spend the day in New York City. The Hamlet Wind Watch Golf & Country Club, located at the hotel, rests atop one of Long Island's highest points. The hotel’s beautiful facilities offer panoramic views of this championship golf course and the entire north shore of Long Island.
