Dual/Double Submissions

By submitting a paper to DICTA 2016, the authors guarantee that it has not been previously published (or accepted for publication) in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of this paper either is under review at the moment of submission or will be submitted during the DICTA 2016 review period to any of the following: another conference, a workshop, or a journal. The DICTA 2016 Committee retains the right to exclude any papers in violation of these requirements.

Manuscript Submission


All submissions must be made electronically as PDF files. The submitted paper should be blind (none of the authors affiliations or names should be included or disclosed in the submitted paper), with its content in final, publishable form before the submission deadline listed in the important dates. Paper submissions will be reviewed by at least two members of the technical and/or program committee. This process will be conducted entirely online, with the results of the review process to be posted on the CMT Website. Authors will also be notified of the review outcome by email. Papers accepted for the conference will be allocated up to 8 pages in the proceedings. A complete paper should be submitted in camera-ready format.


  • Prepare your submission using the IEEE Manuscript Template of your choice.
    • You may wish to use the Microsoft Word 2003 A4 template or a Windows/Unix LaTeX template in conference A4 mode.
    • For example, for the Unix compatible LaTeX template, start with the conference template file bare_conf.tex in the IEEE Manuscript Template LaTeX Archive, it can be configured with the line \documentclass[conference,a4paper]{IEEEtran}. Please note, for this example the LaTeX Bibliography Files may also be required.

  • Your submitted paper may be up to 8 pages long.
  • Please ensure your paper is blind (none of the authors affiliations or names should be included or disclosed in the submitted paper).

Camera-ready Submission

The camera-ready submission deadline is 9th September 2016. Camera-ready manuscripts MUST be submitted through the IEEE and not CMT. To prepare your camera-ready paper:

  • Undo steps that were taken to anonymise your paper for the blind review process. Please ensure the author names and affiliations have been added to your paper, acknowledgements and citations are reinstated, and redactions removed.
  • Improve your paper by addressing the reviewer's comments, at your discretion.
  • Ensure your paper length is within the 8 page limit.
  • Follow the IEEE camera-ready submission instructions:


In addition to the information found on the IEEE submission page, authors should follow the following advice:

  • PDF files are not accepted for this conference, only original source files can be submitted for conversion to PDF.
  • A DVI (DeVice Independent file) and all image files (as .eps files only) are required for LaTeX submissions. Make sure that your LaTeX system can output a DVI, otherwise it cannot be accepted and converted. For TeX tools, see http://miktex.org/
  • If your images are jpg, pdf, or png files you may attempt to upload your LaTeX using these. Review the PDF proof carefully after conversion, if the figures did not show up (assuming they are referenced correctly in the DVI) you may request a manual conversion from your account. If we cannot work with the files we will email you to let you know this.
  • Please compress your source files, including your DVI and supporting figure files, into one archive file (zip, gz, tar, sit, etc.). Then upload your new, compressed archive file using your author account.
  • If you are able to create a PDF, you may want to include it in the archive file to be used for comparison.

Please note that at least one author must register for the conference. Reduced early-bird registration is available until 23rd September 2016.
