1. Scientific Papers for Oral Presentation

DATE seeks submissions of original, unpublished scientific work in one of its four tracks (D, A, T, and E) and 32 topics; for a full track and topic list, see Tracks and Topics list.

Scientific papers can be submitted for either (1) formal oral presentation or for (2) interactive presentation. Oral presentations are given in 30-minute ("long") or 15-minute ("short") slots in the conference program in front of an audience, and require novel and complete research work supported by experimental results. (For Interactive Presentations, see Interactive Presentations.)

All manuscripts must be submitted for review electronically. The only accepted file format is PDF. Any other format and manuscripts received in hard-copy form will not be processed. Manuscripts for Oral Presentation should not exceed six (6) pages in length. To permit blind review, manuscripts should not include the author names nor affiliations. All manuscripts should be formatted as close as possible to the final format: A4 or letter pages, double column, single spaced, Times or equivalent font of minimum 10pt. Use of colors may enhance your figures and is encouraged. Detailed instructions for formatting your manuscript are included in the file (format.pdf). Templates are provided for MS-Word and LaTeX files at http://www.ieee.org/web/publications/pubservices/confpub/AuthorTools/con.... Manuscripts not in line with the above rules might be discarded.

The submission deadline for Scientific Papers is Sunday, September 09, 2012 23:59:59 CET. By this deadline at least a paper title, author list, and a PDF file need to be registered in the on-line submission system; this PDF file can be the complete manuscript, but an incomplete manuscript or even a short abstract is also permissible. The second ("extended") deadline is Friday, September 14, 2012 23:59:59 CET. By this second deadline, a full submission including a complete manuscript PDF needs to be uploaded in the on-line submission system. BOTH DEADLINES ARE HARD AND WILL NOT BE EXTENDED FURTHER.

Submissions need to be made on-line via the following URL:
https://www.softconf.com/date13/conference/

All submitted papers will be evaluated with regard to their suitability for the conference, originality, and technical soundness. The Program Committee reserves the right to reorient Oral-Presentation papers to Interactive-Presentation and vice versa, to obtain the most suitable presentation format. Submissions which are also under review or accepted by another conference, symposium, or journal will be rejected. The DATE conference will work cooperatively with others to check for these so-called "double-submissions".

The contact author of a submitted paper will be notified of acceptance or rejection of his/her paper by Friday, November 16, 2012. In case of acceptance, authors need to prepare a final, camera-ready manuscript by Sunday, December 16, 2012.

It is mandatory that authors of accepted presentations attend DATE 2013 to present their work at the conference and also that each paper is accompanied by at least one full conference registration fee payment at the speaker rate. In the case of no-shows, the conference organization may decide to remove the paper from the conference proceedings.
