This page provides instructions for submitting papers to the edition of the IEEE Int. Symposium on Defect and Fault Tolerance in VLSI and Nanotechnology Systems (DFT), . In an effort to respect the efforts of reviewers and in the interest of fairness to all prospective authors, we request that all submissions to DFT’ follow the formatting and submission rules detailed below. Submissions that violate these instructions may not be reviewed, at the discretion of the program chair, in order to maintain a review process that is fair to all potential authors. An example submission (formatted using the DFT’ submission format) that contains the submission and formatting guidelines can be downloaded as MS Word example or PDF example . The content of the document mirrors the submission instructions on this page.
Special Session papers must be submited through EasyChair as a regular submission.
All submissions that meet the criteria and fit the scope of the conference will be reviewed by at least three members of the Technical Program Committee. Submissions will be evaluated on the basis of originality, soundness, importance of contribution, quality of presentation, and appropriate comparison to related work. The Program Co-Chairs will make the final decisions about which submissions are accepted for presentation at the conference.
Papers must be submitted in printable PDF format and should contain a maximum of 6 pages (or 4 pages for short papers) of single-spaced two-column text, Times or equivalent font of minimum 10pt, including any appendixes and references. Use either the MS Word template or the LaTeX class available here: IEEE templates . If you are usign LaTeX, please specify
Submissions are managed by means of EasyChair. Please register or use your existing login at EasyChair to access the DFT area for submission .
Declare all the authors of the paper upfront. Addition/removal of authors once the paper is accepted will have to be approved by the program chair, since it potentially undermines the goal of eliminating conflicts for reviewer assignment.
By submitting a manuscript to DFT’ , the authors guarantee that the manuscript has not been previously published or accepted for publication in a substantially similar form in any conference, journal, or workshop. The only exceptions are (1) workshops without archived proceedings such as in the ACM/IEEE digital library (or where the authors chose not to have their paper appear in the archived proceedings), or (2) venues, such as IEEE CAL, where there is an explicit policy that such publication does not preclude longer conference submissions. These are not considered prior publications. Technical reports and papers posted on public social media sites, Web pages, or online repositories, such as arxiv.org , are not considered prior publications either. The authors also guarantee that no paper that contains significant overlap with the contributions of the submitted paper will be under review for any other conference, journal, or workshop during the DFT’ review period. Violation of any of these conditions will lead to rejection. As always, if you are in doubt, it is best to contact the program chair(s). Finally, we also note that the IEEE Plagiarism Policy covers a range of ethical issues concerning the misrepresentation of other works or one's own work.
