Paper Submission - Author Instructions
back to Paper Submission 

Submission Guidelines

Papers must be written in English. Only electronic submissions will be accepted. Papers not meeting the guidelines will be returned to the authors.

Format and Length

Submissions must be no longer than twelve (12) pages in double column format with standard margins and at least a 10 point font -- larger if possible. This length includes everything: figures, tables, references, appendices and so forth. Longer submissions will not be reviewed. Please number the pages. You will have a total of ten pages for accepted papers in the final proceedings. Up to two extra pages can be purchased at $200 each. Please provide an abstract of fewer than 200 words.

The paper must be submitted in PDF or Postscript format. We must be able to display and print your submission exactly as we receive it and using only standard tools and postscript printers, so we strongly suggest that you use only standard fonts.
Make sure that the paper prints well on black-and-white printers, not color printers. This is especially true for plots and graphs in the paper.
Make sure that the output has been formatted for printing on LETTER (8.5" by 11") size paper.

Dual Submissions

Once submitted to ICNP, a paper cannot be submitted to another workshop, conference or journal until the ICNP acceptance decision is known. To do so is to risk wasting one of our community's scarcest resources: reviewer effort. Similarly, a paper that is under consideration elsewhere, including a workshop or journal, cannot simultaneously be submitted to ICNP.

If some of the material in a submission has appeared in a workshop, the paper should so indicate. This is only acceptable if the paper submitted to ICNP provides substantial additional results compared to the earlier or pending publication.

Electronic Submission

Please check sometime before the deadline for details.

Important Note: Registration Policy

The organizers of ICNP have instituted the following policy:

"At least one of the authors of each paper presented at the conference must be registered in a non-student category."
