Abstract/Technical Summary Format and Paper Submission Requirements
General Note: The selection-rejection decision for a paper is based on its originality, quality, relevance, and completeness.
TWO OPTIONS FOR PAPER SUBMISSION (Read carefully)
Two options are available for authors who wish to submit papers. Option 1, which rolled out last year and is designed to streamline the process, allows authors to submit an initial version of their paper in a format that is already appropriate for final submission, instead of submitting the traditional abstract/summary format. If their papers are selected, authors do not need to do anything further, but have the option of submitting a final revised paper, if they wish. Option 2 is the traditional process, followed in previous years, of submitting a 4-page Technical Summary for review, with the final paper being submitted later after notification of acceptance.
Please follow the instructions and templates available on www.scomminc.com/pp/pcm/sid.htm to help in the preparation and submission of the 4-page technical paper. If your paper is selected, this submission will be used as the final Symposium Digest paper unless a revised version is submitted by March 15, 2020.
Note that content-wise, the submission must contain the abstract and the information listed in the bullet points (1) – (7) below under Option 2.
The instructions below outline the submission requirements employed in previous years, and can be used instead of Option 1, above. If your paper is accepted, you will receive further instructions for filing your final submission by March 15, 2020. Below are the requirements for Option 2:
Page Headers: Please place the first author’s name and the title of the paper on the top of each page of the submission.
Abstract: Your submitted 35-50 word abstract, highlighting the key details of your paper, will be published in the Program if your paper is accepted. The abstracts will be edited to accommodate the program format.
Keywords: Include a minimum of three keywords.
Technical Summary: The summary must not exceed 4 pages in length. Material beyond four pages will not be considered in the evaluation of the paper.
(1) Include the names of all authors with their affiliations, addresses, telephone numbers, and e-mail addresses. Please underline the name of the presenter when there are two or more authors.
(2) Also indicate whether the presenter is a student.
(3) Objective and Background: Briefly describe the goals and intent of your project and provide background factors that led to the new results.
(4) Results: Describe the specific results that will be presented at the 2020 Display Week Symposium. Please provide a technical description of how the results were achieved. Sufficient detail (quantitative and/or graphical data) should be included so the Program Committee can properly evaluate your submission.
(5) Impact: Discuss the significance of your work and compare your findings with previously published work.
(6) References: List a few main references covering projects in related areas. As of this year, we are requesting that authors use the Vancouver citation style.
(7) Prior Publications: Generally, Symposium papers must be original contributions. If your organization has published or presented material on similar work in English, please explain how the present material differs. The only exception to this rule is that papers submitted to the Emerging Applications subcommittee need not be original.
SUBMISSION PROCESS FOR BOTH OPTIONS

(H) Indicate if you wish to have your paper considered for oral or poster presentation, if you have a preference.
(I) Indicate the closest matching symposium topic from the list included in this Call for Papers along with the appropriate special topic if appropriate.
(J) Attach a PDF of your technical summary.
(K) Click on submit.
If you need further assistance, please contact either Bill Klein at email@example.com or Samantha Tola at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for receipt of technical summaries/abstracts is December 1, 2019 (January 25, 2020, for Late-News Abstracts/Summaries). Notification of acceptance will be emailed by February 8, 2020 (February 26 for Late-News Abstracts/Summaries). Authors of accepted papers will be directed to an online “Author’s Kit” with instructions for the preparation of the paper to be published in the Symposium Digest. The paper shall consist of 4 pages, including all illustrations, and is due no later than March 15, 2020. Note: If a revised paper is not received by March 15, the initial summary and abstract submitted will be published in the Symposium Digest.
