Peer Review Submission Procedure

PDF version of the complete and anonymous paper should be submitted in electronic form on the site no later than
Sept. 21, 2012 by 24:00 (Midnight) Pacific Daylight Time (HARD).

The corresponding author should register at and fill the forms. When submitting a paper on this site, he/she will be asked to give the names and addresses of the authors. These names will be accessible to the PC chairs only.

The paper must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references (if authors need autoreference, this should be done without explicit indication, i.e. "in our previous work [14] we proposed a new..", etc, but as another regular reference "In reference [14] a new...."). The paper should conform with the following indications: title that reflects the content and contribution of the paper, a short abstract, a list of representative keywords, and an introduction that summarizes the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader.

Papers under review elsewhere are not acceptable for submission to ARITH 21 and by submitting a paper you implicitly confirm you are solely submitting it to ARITH 21. Double submission is seen as a serious violation of professional ethics.

Authors will be notified of acceptance in December 2012, and final camera-ready papers will be due in January 2013. Conference proceedings will be available at the Symposium.

A Note On Paper Formatting

The final submissions of accepted papers cannot exceed 10 pages (corresponding to 8+2 extra charged pages) using the IEEE Computer Society Conference format (two columns). However, for review, authors may submit a paper with a maximum of 20 pages, 12pt font size, single column and double spacing. Please make sure you leave enough margin (roughly one inch) on both sides of the text so that it prints correctly on an A4 size paper as well.

Authors of papers exceeding 20 pages 8.5"x11" double-spaced single-column pages, using 12pt or larger font, who think that their submission will fit the final conference page limit, must check their manuscript size using the formatting guidelines found at the IEEE CS CPS Website using the instructions for 8.5" x 11", Two-Column Format and ensure that it does not exceed 10 pages in the 8.5" x 11", Two-Column Format.

The paper must be submitted in PDF format. We cannot accept any other format, and we must be able to print the document just as we receive it. We strongly suggest that you use only the four widely-used printer fonts: Times, Helvetica, Courier and Symbol.
