GUIDELINES FOR PAPER SUBMISSIONS

IEEE ARGENCON 2020 has a single reviewing cycle, the deadline for paper submission is September 6, 2020.

On January 10, 2020 at 12:00 AM, Call for Papers website started to accept submissions. New deadline operates on September 6, 2020 (GMT -3, Buenos Aires timezone) at 11:59 PM. The submissions are managed by Microsoft Research Conference Management Toolkit for Argencon 2020, (from now on, CMT). In order to use this system, authors are strongly advised to read, in a very first place, this tutorial for paper submissions using CMT system (english).

Authors will be notified about papers acceptance / rejection on Friday 9th, October, 2020. For more information, visit the page with new important dates , which have been set after postponing the Congress from June to December.

Papers can be written in English or Spanish, and two kind of papers will be accepted: Full papers (authored by researchers) and Short papers (authored by students).

A. FULL PAPERS

Normally, these ones are authored by researchers, but nothing prevents a graduate or postgraduate student from submitting a full-format paper, which will be treated with the same strictness than a researcher’s paper. Please note that this will be the only format eligible for publication on IEEE Xplore.

Full papers may have up to eight (8) pages, including references and acknowledgments. The kind of paper must be specified at the time of document uploading, in CMT system. Any document exceeding that limit will be rejected. Authors will have the option for submit, in separate files, additional details of their work, or data that support their experimental findings, but it will be entirely up to the reviewers to decide if they wish to consult this additional material. In the case of algorithms, and to promote reproducibility, we recommend authors to send attached documentation with source code of such algorithms. Reproducibility of results and easy availability of the code will be taken into account in evaluation process.

All submissions must be performed by means of MSR CMT system. No emails, nor other electronic means, will be accepted for this task. Since reviewing process will be double-blind, no visible data about authors or affiliations are allowed at this stage.

To write your manuscript, you must download an IEEE Conference Proceedings Template, available for Microsoft Word or LATEX. Links for downloading are found below, in this very page, under the paragraph Style Guidelines.

After date of submission deadline, List of Authors will be considered final, no changes in authorship of accepted papers will be allowed. The following structure is suggested for the articles. Should these sections are used, the paper will be more positively evaluated.

  • Title
  • Summary
  • Keywords (Index terms)
    1. Introduction
    2. Materials and methods, state of the art or previous work
    3. Proposal
    4. Tests and results
    5. Conclusions
  • References

Since submissions must be anonymous, data of affiliation and acknowledgments must be placed only in final version of the article (take into account this additional space, so that the subsequent insertion does not make the maximum pages number to be exceeded).

If your paper is written in spanish, you must provide the following data in english: Title, Abstract and Keywords, in submission web form, in their corresponding text boxes.

A.1 Reviewing criteria for full papers

  • Relevance for the Conference.
  • Contribution to academic debate.
  • Article structure.
