Prospective authors are invited to submit manuscripts reporting original unpublished research and recent developments in the topics related to WCI 2015. Papers must be unpublished and not considered elsewhere for publication. At least one author should be a woman.
 

The organizers regard plagiarism as a serious professional misconduct. All submissions will be screened for plagiarism and when identified, the submissions by the same author will be rejected.  A submission SHOULD NOT be intended to get reviews from the Program Committee for the sole purpose of improving on the quality of the paper. A submission implies that the author intends to ultimately register the paper upon a favorable response from the conference organizers.  The Organisers doesn’t encourage withdrawals after the paper is accepted.

Authors should submit their papers online. We use the EDAS system for paper submissions and reviews. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EDAS to log on. Detailed usage instruction on EDAS can be found here.  All submitted papers are subject to a "similarity test" by the EDAS paper similarity checker. Papers achieving a high similarity score will be examined and those that are deemed unacceptable will be rejected/withdrawn without a formal review. The manuscripts should be submitted in PDF format. Please compare all author names in EDAS with the author list in your paper. They must be identical and in the same order. 

Papers must be formatted according to ACM guidelines and style files to fit within 10 pages, including references, diagrams, and appendices if any. A submitted paper must be self-contained and in English.The paper should not contain page numbers or any special headers or footers.
