Regular Papers:

Regular papers should report on original research, submitted exclusively
to this conference. Submissions may not exceed ten (10) single-spaced
double-column pages. (Papers will be judged based on their quality and
not their length — short papers are welcome.) The title page,
bibliography and designated figure pages (containing only figures) are
not counted toward the ten pages. (Illustrative figures are encouraged.)
All necessary details to substantiate the main claims of the paper
should be included in a clearly marked appendix. Regular papers will be
allotted up to 10 pages in the proceedings.

Brief announcements:

SPAA also solicits brief announcements that raise issues of interest to
the SPAA community. Brief announcements may not exceed three pages and
their titles should start with ``Brief Announcement:''. Examples of good
brief announcements include: (i) papers previously published elsewhere
of interest to SPAA, (ii) work in progress, (iii) announcement of
tools/libraries, (iv) challenge problems posed to the community, (v)
corrections to earlier results. Brief announcements may also include
smaller results of interest.
All regular rejected papers automatically will be considered for brief
announcements. Titles of regular papers which do not want to be
considered for this option should start with ``Full Paper ONLY:''. Brief
announcements will be allotted up to 3 pages in the proceedings.

Paper Submissions:

Submitted manuscripts may not exceed ten (10) single-spaced
double-column pages for regular papers and three (3) single-spaced
double-column pages for brief announcements, using 10-point size font on
8.5x11 inch pages, not counting the title page, bibliography and
designated figure pages ). The title page should contain the title,
author names and affiliations, followed by a brief abstract. See (version 2.8,
May 2015)
for details, including the sig-alternate-05-2015.cls style file and a
sample file. Additional details may be added in a clearly marked
appendix that will be read at the discretion of the program committee.
Please indicate in the title of your manuscript whether this is a
regular paper or a brief announcement.

Regular papers submitted to SPAA may not be under simultaneous
consideration for a journal or any conference or workshop with published
proceedings (other than as a brief announcement for a previous conference).
Authors are encouraged to post full versions of their submissions in a
freely accessible on-line repository such as the arxiv, the ECCC, or the
Cryptology ePrint archive. We expect that authors of accepted regular
papers will make full versions of their papers, with proofs, available
by the camera-ready deadline. (This should be done in a manner
consistent with the ACM Copyright Policy.)
The deadline for ALL submissions is February 9.

Rebuttal Period:

There will be a rebuttal period during which the authors can point out
misunderstandings or comment on critical questions that the PC members
may have. It will take place on March 27-30.


Authors will be sent notification of acceptance or rejection by e-mail
on or before April 23. A camera-ready copy of each accepted abstract
must be prepared according to the ACM guidelines for inclusion in the
proceedings of the conference and must be received by the date to be
determined later.


Every regular paper is eligible for the best paper award. The program
committee may decline to make this award or may split the award among
multiple papers.
