ISRR 2017 Official Website

Paper Submission

All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format through the ISRR 2017 online submission system.

Paper Type

Papers for ISRR 2017 may be submitted in two types:

Long Format: We welcome papers of up to 16 pages, in Springer format (see below), that describe thought-provoking research ideas or directions for which there is already established implementation or evidence. Selected papers will be organized into topical panels for presentation, debate and discussion.

Blue Sky Ideas Format: In cooperation with the Computing Community Consortium (CCC), we encourage submissions to a special “Blue Sky Ideas” track. These are shorter (target length 4 to 6 pages) papers which describe visionary ideas, long term challenges, and opportunities in research that are outside of the current mainstream topics of the field and which will provoke discussion or debate.

Formatting Instructions

Submitted papers should follow the LaTeX format given by the template for the Springer SPAR series under the "Instructions for Author" tab in the "Proceedings and other Multi-Author Volumes" section. Papers may also use the LaTeX template available here. Papers may not exceed 16 pages.

Keywords: Specify 1 or more keywords that describe the paper. These will be entered in the submission form and should be noted at the beginning of the abstract, both on the paper PDF file as well as in the abstract textbox form in the submission system.
