Paper and Presentation Types

With a minimum change to the ISARC history, we introduce different types of papers and presentations for ISARC 2021, intending to improve the conference’s quality and attendees’ experience.

  • Two types of papers
    • Scientific Papers
      • These are the regular “technical papers” as in previous ISARC.
      • It stresses stronger requirements on scientific contributions and the intellectual merits of the accepted papers.
      • Recommended length: 6~8 pages, including references.
    • Short Papers
      • To attract more industry attendance to ISARC, we introduce this new type of paper with less stringent requirements on scientific contributions.
      • This type of paper is more friendly for case study papers or industry submissions.
      • This is similar to extended abstracts or industry papers in other conferences.
      • Recommended length: no more than 4 pages, including references.
  • Four types of presentation
    • Presentation types are not necessarily connected with the above paper types.
    • The types are decided by the technical committee based on the reviewers’ recommendations
      • The ranking of all papers is based on the average paper ratings from the reviewers and the presentation types recommended by area chairs.
    • Keynote & Plenary talks
      • Each keynote talk is a 20-minute live presentation + a 10-minute Q&A.
      • Each plenary talk is a 10-minute live presentation + a 5-minute Q&A.
    • Parallel talks
      • Parallel track names are determined by the technical committee.
      • Each parallel talk is a 10-minute live presentation (or recorded video) + 5-minute Q&A.
