CBMS 2013 invites original previously unpublished contributions that are not submitted concurrently to a journal or another conference. Many of the topics listed on the home page will be represented by corresponding special tracks, while others are solely covered by the general (main) CBMS track. Prospective authors are expected to submit their contributions to one of the corresponding special tracks or to the general track if none of the special tracks are relevant.
Each contribution must be prepared following the IEEE two-column format, and should not exceed the length of 6 (six) Letter-sized pages; the authors may use LaTeX or Microsoft Word templates when preparing their drafts. The papers should be submitted electronically before the paper submission deadline using the EasyChair online submission system. Papers must be submitted in PDF format, with fonts embedded. All submissions will be peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers. Each program committee of the corresponding special track or general track will be responsible for the final decision about acceptance of papers submitted to that track.
All accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings, and will be published by the IEEE. At least one author must pay the registration fee before April 10, 2013 for each accepted paper.
Please refer to the IEEE IPR guidelines concerning copyright. Authors of accepted papers must include a completed IEEE Copyright Form with the submission of their final camera-ready paper.
Best papers will be invited to submit extended versions for special issues of journal of the area.
