Detailed specifications for the submission content and format are provided below.
    2. The manuscript is to be submitted electronically through the website. This abstract must be submitted by July 21, 2024.
    3. The status of all submissions will be available on the APSIPA ASC 2024 website. The status page indicates successful receipt of a submission and electronic copyright form, whether the submission has passed formatting inspection, and whether the submission is accepted.
    4. 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 this website and authors will also be notified of the review results by email.

General Instructions
Use the LaTeX or MS Word templates in The Template.
Prepare your paper in full-size format, on A4 paper (210mm by 297mm). Write the paper in English.

We kindly ask authors to check your paper if all fonts in the PDF file of the manuscript are embedded and subset. It can be checked from Document Properties/Fonts in File menu of Adobe Acrobat.

Document Formatting
A. Paper Length
The length of the regular paper is limited to 4-6 pages (including everything). Please DO NOT put a page number on each page. Please DO NOT put a page number on each page.

B. Type Sizes and Typefaces
Follow the type sizes specified in Table I. As an aid in gauging type size, 1 point is about 0.35 mm. The size of the lowercase letter “j” will give the point size. Times New Roman is the preferred font.

C. Margins
top = 19mm, bottom = 43mm and left = right = 13mm. The column width is 8mm (3.45 in). The space between the two columns is 4mm (0.17 in). Paragraph indentation is 3.5 mm (0.14 in).

D. Style
The style of the paper is single-spaced two-column format like this sample. Left- and right-justify your columns. Use tables and figures to adjust column length. On the last page of your paper, adjust the lengths of the columns so that they are equal. Use automatic hyphenation and check spelling. Digitize or paste down figures.

E. The First Page
Center the title across both columns at the top of the first page, followed by authors' names and their affiliations. Long title should be typed on two lines without a blank line intervening. The two-column format should start with the abstract. Type the abstract at the beginning of the left column in the first page, leaving approximately 1 cm (0.39 in) from the title part. The abstract should be the same as that submitted electronically on the symposium website.

The review process will be performed from the electronic submission of your manuscript. To ensure that your document is compatible with the review system, please adhere to the following compatibility requirements:

File Format
Papers must be submitted in Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF) format.

Please make sure that you submit a valid PDF to the submission system. Adobe Acrobat is the preferred way of generating a PDF file, but there are many other options which produce quality PDFs as well.

PDF files:
  • must not have Adobe Document Protection or Document Security enabled,
  • must have 'A4' sized pages,
  • must be in first-page-first order, and
  • must have ALL FONTS embedded and subset.

ALL FONTS MUST be embedded in the PDF or PostScript file. There is no guarantee that the reviewers of the abstract have the same fonts used in the document. If fonts are not embedded in the final submission, you will be contacted by the secretariat and asked to submit a file that has all fonts embedded. Please refer to your PDF or PS file generation utility's user guide to find out how to embed all fonts.

Information for LaTeX users
Generating a PostScript file is straightforward for all LaTeX packages we are aware of. When preparing the proposal under LaTeX, it is preferable to use scalable fonts such as Type I, Computer Modern. However, quite good results can be obtained with the fonts defined in the style file recommended above (spconf.sty).

PDF files with Postscript Type 3 fonts are highly discouraged. PDF and PostScript files utilizing Type 3 fonts are typically produced by the LaTeX system and are lower-resolution bitmapped versions of the letters and figures. It is possible to perform a few simple changes to the configuration or command-line to produce files that use PostScript Type 1 fonts, which are a vector representation of the letters and figures.

For most installations of LaTeX, you can cause dvips to output Type 1 fonts instead of Type 3 fonts by including -Ppdf option to dvips. The resulting PDF file will reference the Type 1 Computer Modern fonts, rather than embedding the bitmapped Type 3 versions, which cause problems with printers.

You may also need to tell dvips to force letter sized paper with the option: -t letter.

Some LaTeX installations also include pdflatex, which produces acceptable PDF files as well.

Electronic Paper Submission
When you have your document file ready, gather the following information before entering the submission system:
  • Manuscript in PDF format
  • Affiliation, email address, and mailing address for each author
  • Paper title
The submission system will present an entry form to allow you to enter the paper title, paper topic, and author contact information.

ALL authors must be entered in the online form, and must appear in the online form in the same order in which the authors appear on the PDF.

After you submit this information, the system will display a page with the data that you entered so that you may verify its accuracy. If you need to change the data to fix a mistake, you can revise it any time before the deadline of paper submission. At the end of a successful upload, an email message will be sent to the corresponding authors' email addresses to confirm that the file has been uploaded. If you do not receive the email, we may not have successfully received your file upload. If you encounter trouble, contact the paper submission support at: apsipa2024@um.edu.mo.

Online Review Process
A committee of reviewers selected by the conference committee will review the manuscripts and rate them according to quality, relevence, and correctness. The conference technical committee will use these reviews to determine which papers will be accepted for presentation in the conference. The result of the technical committee's decision will be communicated to the submitting authors by email, along with any program committee comments, if any.

Monitor Your Submission Status
After you submit your document, you may monitor the status of your paper as it progresses through the submission and review process by using CMT website.

Notification of Acceptance
Authors will be notified of paper acceptance or non-acceptance by email.

The notification email may include comments from the reviewers and/or program committee members. The conference cannot guarantee that all of the reviewers will provide the level of detail desired by you. However, reviewers are encouraged to submit as detailed comments as possible.

Because of the short amount of time between paper acceptance decisions and the beginning of the publication process, APSIPA ASC 2024 is not able to allow for a two-way discourse between the authors and the reviewers of a paper. If there appears to be a logistical error in the reviewer comments, such as the reviewer commenting on the wrong paper, etc., please contact APSIPA ASC 2024 at apsipa2024@um.edu.mo.

Continuing in 2024 Publication in the Proceedings: All accepted submissions, with an author registered, and which are presented on-site, will be published in the proceedings (IEEE Xplore).

Required Author Registration
Be sure that at least one author registers to attend the conference using the online registration system available through the conference website. Each accepted paper being presented must have at least one author registered, with the payment received by the author registration deadline (see above) to avoid being withdrawn from the conference.
