Submission Guidelines

All papers must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another

or conference. The following paper categories are welcome:


Full papers: Submissions must be formatted using two-columns and may be at

12 pages in length, including all tables, figures, and appendices, but not

including references. You may include any number of pages for references.

Unsuccessful full paper submissions, where appropriate, will automatically

considered for publication as short papers.


Short papers: Authors with a contribution for which a full paper is not

appropriate may submit short papers of at most 6 pages, not including

references, with the same formatting guidelines as full papers. You may

any number of pages for references. Short papers may describe original or

unconventional ideas at a preliminary stage of development, negative

experimental validations, or original results that do not require a



Papers must be unpublished and must not be submitted or under review for

publication elsewhere. Technical Program Committee members and other experts

active in the field will review submitted papers to ensure high quality and

relevance to the conference program. Accepted papers will appear in the

conference proceedings to be published in IEEExplore. For accepted papers,

conference registration and attendance by at least one author to present the

paper is mandatory.


For guidelines regarding formatting, please refer to the IEEE Manuscript

Templates for Conference Proceedings

(https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html). All papers

be formatted using the two-column IEEE conference style with a font size of

points or greater. There is no need to anonymise submissions, since MASCOTS

does not use a double-blind reviewing process (only single-blind).


A selection of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version

their paper to a Special Issue in the Performance Evaluation journal (after
the conference).
