Paper Submission Procedure

  • Step 1. Make sure that your paper adheres to the conference’s template and is either in MS Word or PDF format (the final manuscript, submitted as the ‘camera ready’ revision for publication, must be in PDF).
  • Step 2. Go to the submission website: https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/WMCS2018/ and either use “Registration” to create a new account, or log in using an existing account.
  • Step 3. Create a new submission (using the button under the “Author Console” header)
    1. You will be asked to enter the following information for your new submission:
      1. Title
      2. Abstract (Limit 1000 characters)
      3. Authors (You will be able to add co-authors by entering their email addresses. You can remove or re-order authors using the buttons on the right side of the author list).
      4. Subject area (Please select the subject area for your paper from the available list, or “none of the above.” This selection will be used for reviewer identification).
      5. File upload (You must upload at least one PDF file at the time of submission; however, you will be able to revise this file up until the submission deadline).
    2. Submit the paper by clicking on “Submit” at the bottom of the page.
  • Step 4. If you also serve as a paper reviewer for the conference, or are aware of reviewers that are either a co-author, colleague, collaborator, or relative, they must be identified as potentially having a conflict of interest.

Up until the initial submission deadline you will be able to edit the submission details and revise your paper from the Author Console. You will also be able to edit your manuscript after receiving the review comments, up until the deadline for the submission of finalized ‘camera ready’ revisions.

Review Decisions and Final Paper Submission

Review decisions will be emailed to authors by March 4th. Finalized revisions of accepted papers, which are expected to consider the review comments, are to be submitted by March 10th.
Instructions for final paper submission will appear in a separate document in the “Author Toolkit”.

We hope that you find the paper submission process easy to follow.
If you encounter difficulties or have questions regarding it, please email the conference publications chair, Dr. Ifana Mahbub, at Ifana.Mahbub@unt.edu .
