Paper Categories


All papers must be original, unpublished, and not submitted for publication elsewhere. GAUSS 2019 offers two submission tracks:

  • Long: up to 8 pages (with reference)
  • Short: up to 4 pages (with reference)

Formatting Rules

Submissions must adhere to the IEEE Computer Society Format Guidelines as implemented by the following LaTeX/Word templates:

* LaTex Package (use bare_conf.tex) (ZIP)

* Word Template (DOCX)

Each paper must be submitted as a single Portable Document Format (PDF) file. All fonts must be embedded. We also strongly recommend you print the file and review it for integrity (fonts, symbols, equations etc.) before submitting it. A defective printing of your paper can undermine its chance of success. Please take a note of the following:

  • Submissions should be anonymous.
  • The first page must include the title of the paper, and a maximum 200-word abstract.
  • Please take into account that the abstract will be used by the reviewers to bid on papers. Thus, describe the paper goals clearly, as well as the means used to achieve them.
  • The first page is not a separate page, but is a part of the paper (i.e., it has technical material in it). Thus, this page counts toward the total page budget for the paper.
  • Pages should be numbered.
  • The use of color for figures and graphs is allowed only if the paper turns out to be readable if printed in grayscale.
  • Symbols and labels used in the graphs should be readable as printed, without requiring on-screen magnification.
  • Try to limit the file size to less than 15 MB.

Authors of accepted papers will be expected to supply electronic versions of their papers and are encouraged to supply source code and raw data to help others replicate and better understand their results.

The submission of a contribution implies that, if accepted for presentation, at least one of its proponents must register (paying the requested fee) and attend the conference for giving the presentation.


Accepted peer-reviewed papers will be included in a supplemental volume of the ISSRE conference proceedings, and published by the IEEE Computer Society on IEEE Xplore
