Submissions that are identical (or substantially similar) to versions that have been previously published, or accepted for publication, or that have been submitted in parallel to other conferences are not appropriate for RSS and violate our dual submission policy. Exceptions to this rule are the following:
- Submission is permitted of a short version of a paper that has been submitted to a journal, but has not yet been published in that journal. Authors must declare such dual-submissions either through the paper upload submission form, or via email to the program chairs. It is the authors’ responsibility to make sure that the journal in question allows dual concurrent submissions to conferences.
- Submission is permitted for papers presented or to be presented at conferences or workshops without proceedings, or with only abstracts published.
- It is acceptable to submit to RSS work that has been made available as a technical report (or similar, e.g. in arXiv) without citing it.
None of the above should be construed as overriding the requirements of other publishing venues. In addition, keep in mind that author anonymity to RSS reviewers might be compromised for authors availing themselves of exceptions 2 and 3.
