Submissions will be accepted
through December 1, 2023

Submission Guidelines

  • NEW at ISC 2024, accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion as fully open access in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

    IEEE Xplore
  • Upload your research paper in PDF format, up to 10 pages. Use the Double-column text using the single-spaced 10-point font on 8.5×11-inch pages. IEEE strongly encourages use of the conference manuscript templates provided on their website.
  • ISC 2024 will use a double-blind review process (see ISC High Performance Double-Blind Review Guidelines)
  • Papers submitted for the Research Papers track should not have been previously published or under review for a different venue

Note that a membership on a program committee does not inherently create a conflict of interest to submit a paper.

Review Process

  • Each paper is expected to receive a minimum of 3 to 4 reviews
  • Double-blind peer-review will be used
  • Papers will be evaluated based on novelty, fundamental insights, clarity of presentation, and potential for long-term impact
  • Reviewers will provide constructive, actionable feedback that can be used to improve the paper, whether it is eventually accepted or not

The Research Paper Committee reserves the right to reject incorrectly formatted papers.

Rebuttal phase (January 27-31,2024)

  • Initial reviewer comments will be made available to authors
  • Authors can respond to clarify misunderstandings and answer questions
  • Rebuttals will be submitted in written format and will have a tight deadline
  • Authors will receive additional instructions via email

Final decision (February 16, 2024)

  • All reviews and rebuttals will be considered by the paper’s track committee
  • Live reviewer discussions will occur during the research paper committee meeting
  • A consensus-driven approach will be used to select the strongest papers
  • Notification of the papers’ outcomes will be sent to authors after the program committee’s meeting
  • ISC 2024 is planned as an in-person conference from May 12 to May 16, 2024, in Hamburg, Germany. By submitting a research paper, the submitter agrees that one of the authors of the paper will present the work at ISC 2024 in Hamburg, Germany. For unforeseen circumstances that would prevent the chosen speaker from attending the event, the submitter/speaker should contact ISC organizers and the research paper chair as soon as possible to discuss different options.
  • The research paper sessions will be held from Monday, May 13, through Wednesday, May 15, 2024
  • Every paper presenter needs to submit a short, pre-recorded summary video of the paper prior to the conference
  • Presentation slides will be available within the event platform for registered attendees only
  • Paper presenters need to be registered ISC 2024 participants. For accepted papers, one author is eligible for a complimentary conference participation pass
  • Travel, accommodation, registration fees for other authors, and other such expenses will not be covered by the ISC organizers
