Paper Guidlines

Submitted Paper Format

Manuscripts can be submitted into one of the two following categories:
  • Regular Papers should describe original research (not submitted or published elsewhere) and be not more than 20 double-spaced pages including figures and tables using 11-point type.

  • Practical Experience Reports should describe an experience or a case study, such as the design and deployment of a system or actual failure and recovery field data. Practical Experience Reports should be between 5-12 double-spaced pages including figures and tables using 11-point type.
The title page (for both paper catagories) should include a 150-word abstract, five keywords, authors' names and addresses and include a line specifying whether the submission is a Regular Paper or a Practical Experience Report. The full mailing address, phone, fax and email address of the corresponding author should be specified. All submissions must be made electronically.

  • Papers submitted to PRDC 2007 should not be submitted or published elsewhere.
  • Also, it is expected that at least one author of an accepted paper should register and present their paper at the conference.
