General Information

EPEC 2015 paper submission and review process:

The EPEC 2015 paper submission and review process uses a full paper review process. Authors who wish to participate in the conference will create documents consisting of a complete description of their ideas and applicable research results in a maximum of 6 pages (plus a maximum of 2 additional pages for an additional fee). Submit the paper AND the copyright form electronically. The full paper must be submitted for review by the (extended) deadline of April 22nd, 2015. If the paper is accepted, there will be an opportunity to modify the paper in response to the reviewer’s comments before the final submission deadline of July 27th, 2015.

Paper submissions will be reviewed by experts selected by the conference committee for their demonstrated knowledge of particular topics. The progress and results of the review process will be posted on the paper submission website, and authors will also be notified of the review results by email. The review process is being conducted entirely online. To make the review process easy for the reviewers, and to assure that the paper submissions will be readable through the online review system, we ask that authors submit paper documents that are formatted according to the Paper Kit instructions included here.
