Submission

Submissions to ACII 2017 should not have substantial overlap with any other paper already submitted or published, or to be submitted during the ACII 2017 review period. All persons who have made any substantial contribution to the work should be listed as authors, and all listed authors should have made some substantial contribution to the work. All authors should be aware of the paper being submitted to ACII 2017.

Proceedings will be published on IEEExplore. IEEE CS is a technical co-sponsor of ACII 2017. If a paper is accepted, it is assumed that an author will register and attend the conference to present the paper. The conference and IEEE reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference, including IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, if the paper is not presented by the author at the conference.

The reviewing process for ACII 2017 will be “double blind”, and so the submitted version of the paper should be appropriately anonymized not to reveal either the authors’ identities or institutions.

The submission process will be handled through the CMT System. Papers longer than six pages will be subject to a page fee (100 USD per page) for the extra pages (two max).  Submissions may be up to eight pages in the conference paper format.  Submissions must be in pdf format, are limited to a 10MB file size, and must be in final, publishable form before the submission deadline. Papers that use different formatting from the ACII 2017 Latex or Word templates, have more than eight pages, or explicitly reveal identifying information about the authors will be automatically removed from the reviewing process.

Supplementary material (images, video, etc.) may optionally be submitted with papers, but be sure to maintain anonymity, including the file properties or other hidden text. The supplemental material has a file size limit of 100MB. The supplemental materials will not be part of the conference proceedings, so they are only there to aid the reviewing process. Reviewers are not required to view the supplemental material (though most reviewers are likely to do so), so any information critical to understanding the work should be in the main paper.

ACII 2017 will be using the IEEE PDF eXpress for enforcing the requirements for papers to appear in IEEE Xplore. The final versions of all papers accepted for publication must adhere to the IEEE Xplore PDF specifications.

Instructions for Authors:

* Prepare your manuscripts as per the IEEE specification (latex template, word template)

* Carefully proofread your submission.

* For the main conference submit to the main conferene CMT

* For Doctoral consortium and demos submit here

All supplementary material must be self-contained and zipped into a single file (< 30MB). The following formats are allowed: avi, mp4, pdf, wmv. Note that reviewers will be encouraged to look at it, but are not obligated to do so.

All accepted papers must be presented at the conference by one of the authors. One of the authors must register for the conference at one of the non-student rates offered, and must register before the deadline given for author registration. Failure to register before the deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of your paper from the conference proceedings and program. A single registration may cover up to three papers.

Visa Statement

ACII is dedicated to inclusiveness and encourages the broadest possible international participation. We wish to reassure everyone that we are committed to providing a solution to any authors or attendees who are affected by US visa bans. In particular, ACII 2017 will not be retracting papers for ‘no show’ if authors are unable to travel to the US for this reason. As the organizers of ACII, we are aware that the US conference location in 2017 may cause problems for prospective authors and attendees, and are monitoring the situation. Please direct any questions or concerns to the ACII Visa Chair.
