A paper must accompany all presentations and tutorials. All papers, poster abstracts and PhD Colloquium papers will be peer reviewed. Below are templates (one for Word and one for LaTex) for preparing papers for WSC. Full papers must be 5 to 12 pages in length and must use one of these templates. Introductory tutorials, advanced tutorials, and panel session papers may be up to 15 pages in length. Read the descriptions of tracks and track coordinators.

Accepted papers will be published in the WSC conference proceedings which will be copyrighted and widely disseminated. The proceedings of the WSC are listed in the ACM and IEEE digital libraries.
