IEEE International Conference on Development and Learning, 2010

Types of Submissions

Submission to ICDL-2010 is closed.

ICDL 2010 will accept two types of submissions:

  1. Full six-page paper submissions: Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and will be selected for either an oral presentation or a featured poster presentation. Featured posters will have a 1 minute "teaser" presentation as part of the main conference session and will be showcased in the poster sessions. (Deadline: Mar 6, 2010)
  2. Two-page poster abstract submissions: To encourage late-breaking results or for work that is not sufficiently mature for a full paper, ICDL will accept 2-page abstracts. These submissions will NOT be included in the conference proceedings. Accepted abstracts will be presented during the evening poster sessions. (Deadline: May 27, 2010)

Submission Instructions

Abstracts should be entered through the online paper submission system.

Papers must conform to IEEE transactions formats. Paper templates are available for Microsoft Word and for both Unix LaTeX2e or Windows or Mac LaTeX2e.

Camera-ready final copies must pass a PDF compliance check. Authors will be required to use IEEE PDF eXpress, a free on-line tool, to verify that their submissions conform to the formatting requirements. Authors of accepted submissions will be sent instructions on how to use this tool.

Notes for Authors

In keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of the conference, all papers will receive reviews from experts in both computational disciplines and biological disciplines. Authors are strongly encouraged to ensure that their submissions are accessible to an interdisciplinary audience.
