Revised Submissions

Revised submissions are due 15 August, 2012. Authors should reintroduce any content that was removed for anonymity at this point. Authors should also be sure that papers conform to the templates.

Final Templates

How to Submit

SST 2012 is now accepting 4-page Papers for consideration as oral presentations, and 1-page Abstracts as poster presentations. Templates are provided below. Please note, as this is a departure from previous SST conferences: 4-page papers will only be considered for oral presentations, and 1-page abstracts will be considered only for poster presentations. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, but accepted abstracts will not.

Both 4-page Papers and 1-page Abstracts will be evaluated double-blind by at least two reviewers.

Some users of Internet Explorer have experienced issues downloading the Word templates wherein the .dotx file is downloaded, but renamed improperly to a .zip file. If you are affected by this, simply changing the file extension back to .dotx should remedy this problem. If it does not, please contact us at for help.
