Papers must describe original work that has not been previously published or submitted elsewhere.
Submissions must be written in English and formatted according to the IEEE formatting instructions.
Perspective papers explore the history, successes, and challenges of requirements related practices and research agendas, and outline research roadmaps for the future.
Literature reviews are also included in this category and must distill novel knowledge, present new insights and not be merely compilative.
Of course, authors are allowed and encouraged to submit papers that build on their previously published work.
In order to prepare your submission for double-blind reviewing, please follow the instructions given below.
The goal of double-blind reviewing is to ensure that the reviewers can read and review your paper without having to know who any of the authors are, and hence avoid related bias.
It is not about making the authors’ identity undiscoverable.
If your instructor has specific requirements for the format of your research paper, check them before preparing your final draft.
