DATESAbstract registration: 13 May 2012 (5:59:59pm PDT)
Paper submission: 20 May 2012 (5:59:59pm PDT)
Notification: 30 July 2012
Camera ready: 10 Aug 2012 (5:59:59pm PDT)
(Deadlines are hard.)
Papers must be submitted at the conference submission web site. A submission must be in English in PS/PDF format. A submission for a regular presentation must report on original research that has not previously appeared and has not been concurrently submitted to a journal or conference with published proceedings. Any overlap with a published or concurrently submitted paper must be clearly indicated.
Submitted papers must not exceed 10 pages on letter paper using 11 point font (Times-Roman or similar), single spaced with 13.2 point leading (baselineskip), with a text block of 6.5 inches wide by 9 inches tall. The page limit includes title and abstract but excludes references.Additional details may be included in a clearly-marked appendix that will be read at the discretion of the program committee. Submission templates for LaTeX and Word are available here: disctemplate.tex, disctemplate.docx. The templates are provided for convenience; authors may use other word processors or templates that meet the format guidelines above
A brief announcement submission must not exceed 3 pages in the same format. It is permissible for the material in brief announcements to be published in other conferences. Submissions not conforming to these rules will not be reviewed. If requested on the submission system, a regular submission can be also considered for publication as a brief announcement. This choice will not affect consideration of the paper as a regular submission.
Awards will be given to the best paper and the best student paper. A paper is eligible for the best student paper award if at least one of its authors is a full-time student at the time of submission.
Proposals for satellite workshops are welcome, and should be sent to the program chair by 13 May 2012.
The program will include keynote lectures, tutorials, regular presentations, and brief announcements. Workshops will be held on the days before and after DISC. Regular presentations of 25 minutes will be accompanied by papers of up to 15 pages in the proceedings. Brief announcements of 5 to 10 minutes will be accompanied by two-page abstracts in the proceedings.
