How to Submit to the FREENIX Refereed Track
HOW TO SUBMIT TO THE FREENIX REFEREED TRACKThe FREENIX Refereed track submission deadline is November 12, 2001.
You may submit either a complete paper, or a 2-5 page extended abstract or summary of your work to date. The program committee reads these submissions to determine which papers to accept for the conference; it is important that you include enough detail that program committee members can know what you are doing. In no event should you submit a description in excess of 14 pages including all figures, tables, and bibliography.
All submissions for the USENIX 2002 FREENIX Track will be electronic, in PostScript, PDF, or plain text, via this Web form.
Authors will be notified of receipt of submission via e-mail. If you do not receive notification by Friday, November 16, 2001, please contact: email@example.com.
A good paper should:
While summary submissions will not be final or complete, the qualities listed above should be evident in the summary submissions. Summary submissions should clearly detail where work is still to be done or explained.
Papers previously published by USENIX, especially those published in the FREENIX Refereed Track, may be useful to help determine what is appropriate, and to improve your paper. A list of papers previously published by USENIX is available in our Library of Proceedings.
Note: the USENIX Technical Conference, like most conferences and journals, requires that papers not be submitted simultaneously to more than one conference or publication, and that submitted papers not be previously or subsequently published elsewhere. Papers accompanied by non-disclosure agreement forms are not acceptable and will be returned to the author(s) unread. All submissions are held in the highest confidentiality prior to publication in the Proceedings, both as a matter of policy and in accord with the U.S. Copyright Act of 1976.
Authors will be notified of paper acceptance or rejection by January 22, 2002. Authors whose submissions are accepted are expected to produce a final written report for the proceedings. Each accepted paper will be shepherded by a member of the program committee. Shepherds will help authors through the writing process prior to final acceptance for publication. The final reports must be reviewed and accepted by the paper's shepherd by April 8, 2002. After shepherd approval, the reports must be submitted with the standard release forms to the USENIX publications office by April 16, 2002. If you would like to avoid future formatting changes, you may consult a predefined template which formats according to the USENIX guidelines: StarWriter 5.0, Troff, LaTeX and style file, Framemaker.
Final reports should be as polished as possible; higher quality submissions are often better received by the community. The papers should describe work that has been completed as of the time of their final submission. Your talk at the conference may describe not only what is in your paper but also the work completed between the time that the final paper is submitted and the conference is held.
If you have specific questions about submissions, send them to the program chair via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
