The Third ACM International
Vehicular Ad Hoc Networks (VANET 2006)
Paper Submission Instructions
Submission Deadline Extended to June 5, 2006.
VANET invites submission of manuscripts that present
original research results. Submitted papers must be unpublished, and the same
or substantially similar papers must not be currently under review for any
other publication. Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an ACM
copyright release form. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must
present the paper at VANET 2006. The Proceedings of the workshop will be
published by ACM Press and distributed at the workshop; copies of the
Proceedings will also be available for sale from ACM after the workshop.
All submissions will be reviewed by the Program Committee
through a double-blind review process, where the identities of the
authors are withheld from the reviewers. Submissions will be judged on
originality, significance, interest, clarity, relevance, and correctness.
Before submitting your paper, please check the description of the scope in the Call for Papers.
If you are unsure whether your work falls within the scope of VANET, please
contact the Program Chairs at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Papers must be submitted electronically through the EDAS
system. The complete list of authors' names must be inserted when registering
the paper on the EDAS system. However, authors’ names can not be inserted in
the paper due to the double-blind
review process. In order to access the EDAS system you need to register first.
Authors should check if they already have a login on the EDAS system;
otherwise, they must create it before submitting the paper. If you are not
already registered to EDAS please follow the instructions on the EDAS
registration page, where you can login, or you can create a new EDAS
Formatting your Paper
Please be sure your paper is formatted properly for
submission. In particular, please note the following paper formatting
- Your submission must be in PDF format.
Whatever text processor or formatter you use to write your paper (LaTeX,
Microsoft Word, FrameMaker, etc.), please convert the output to PDF before
- Your submission must be correctly formatted to fit on
U.S. "Letter" size paper, which is
8.5 inches wide by 11 inches tall. Please be sure you have a
reasonable margin (such as 1 inch) on all edges (top, bottom, left, and
right) of each page.
- Paper submissions must be limited to 10 pages,
including all figures and references, and must include an abstract of 100 – 150
words. Either single-column or double-column format is fine for submissions.
- The font size used in the text of your submission must not
be smaller than 11 points.
- As described above, all papers will be judged through
double-blind reviewing, where the identities of the authors are withheld from
the reviewers. Papers must not reveal the authors' identities in
the paper or in the submitted PDF file. This means that before submission, you
must remove from the paper the authors' names, authors' affiliations,
acknowledgements of funding sources, etc. Also, be careful how you refer to
your own prior work in the paper. For example, do not describe your own prior
work with phrases like:
"In prior work, we presented a routing protocol that ..."
Instead, refer to your work in the third person, such as
"In prior work, Smith presented a routing protocol that ..."
- We must be able to print your paper once it is submitted.
Due to the large variety of systems available for formatting papers and
producing PDF, this is not always possible for some systems. To maximize the chances
that your paper will print correctly, please use only standard printer fonts
(e.g., Times Roman, Helvetica, etc.) or standard TeX Computer Modern fonts;
other fonts may be used but must be included in the PDF file. The use of
standard printer fonts is strongly preferred over TeX fonts, if possible.
- The paper must be able to print clearly on standard
black-and-white printers. Reviewers are not required to view your paper in
color, and the final version of all accepted papers will be published in only
black-and-white in the workshop Proceedings.
