NOCS 2023 adopts a journal-integrated publication model. Accepted papers will be published in an IEEE Design & Test special issue. As a result, paper submissions follow a journal-style, two-stage review process where papers passing the first stage of reviews will be asked to revise their work based on reviewer comments within a short time frame of around three weeks. For details about the schedule, see the important dates listed below. Accepted articles will be presented at the respective NOCS conferences.
All papers must represent mature and original work, and not be published or submitted for publication
in other conferences and journals. A double-blind review process will be enforced. Authors must not
reveal their identity directly or indirectly. Papers must be in PDF format and should strictly follow
IEEE Design & Test style and formatting that can be found at
https://ieee-ceda.org/publication/ieee-design-test-dt/author-info, with an exemption of a
6,500-word limit and a maximum of 18 references for NOCS 2023 papers.
Below is a summary of requirements from IEEE Design & Test:
- A 100-word abstract.
- Article title should not exceed 9 words.
- No more than 6,500 words, including references and illustrations.
- No more than 18 references.
- Each figure and table is counted, on average, as 200 words.
