This year, for the first time, RAW will have two submission rounds
. An early submission deadline on November 3rd will be followed by a second submission at the end of January.
: the two submission rounds are strictly independent chances for submission. Not having submitted for the first round does not
prevent a second round submission.
Publication and ACM TRETS Special Issue
IEEE CS Press will publish the IPDPS symposium and workshop abstracts as a printed volume. Proceedings of the workshops are distributed at the conference and are submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library after the conference. We will also invite top papers from the workshop to extend their work and submit to the ACM TRETS special issue on RAW 2024.
All manuscripts will be reviewed by at least three members of the program committee, with a single-blind review process. Submissions should be a complete manuscript or, in special cases, may be a summary of relevant work. There are two types of manuscripts: 1) full papers (up to 6 pages) and 2) short papers (up to 4 pages). Both manuscripts should follow the IEEE conference style: single-spaced, double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5X11 inch pages. The page limits exclude references and both manuscripts can include up to 2 pages of references. A conformant LaTeX template is available here
Overleaf users can find the LaTeX template here
. A Microsoft Word template is available here
Papers are to be submitted through Linklings
. Please choose “Workshop: RAW 2024 Round 2". All papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format. Submitted papers should not have appeared in or be under submission for a different workshop, conference or journal. It is also expected that all accepted papers (full or short) will be presented at the workshop by one of the authors.
Reviewer Conflict Policy
During paper submission (in “Conflicts > My Conflicts”), all author(s) conflicts must be registered with all possible program committee members. Conflicts are defined as all relationships that would prevent a reviewer from objectively evaluating the submitted work. This includes, but is not limited to, having within the past 5 years, 1) co-authored a publication, or 2) shared a funding award, and 3) shared at least one institutional affiliation. Note: if a conflict is declared (or left undeclared) in an attempt to manipulate the review process, the submission may be rejected.
RAW 2024 will continue the experimental Artifact Evaluation (AE) initiated in RAW 2023. Authors of accepted papers at RAW 2024 can optionally participate in the AE process to formally describe supporting materials(code, data, models, workflows, results).
Artifacts are digital objects that were created by the authors as part of the research or experiments performed with the submitted work. Examples of artifacts are:
Software: models, source code, scripts, Makefiles, container images (like Docker files), etc.
Hardware: Verilog, VHDL, schematics, CAD tools, flows, etc.
Data: spreadsheets, databases, binary files, design sets, etc.
High-quality artifacts are as important as the manuscript itself. The goal of submitting artifacts promotes the availability and reproducibility of the experimental results and data such that other researchers can repeat experiments and replicate results with less effort.
Note that this submission is voluntary and will not influence the final decision regarding the papers. The goal is to help the authors validate experimental results from their accepted papers by an independent AE Committee (AEC) in a collaborative way while helping readers find articles with available (i.e., publicly accessible in an archival repository), functional (i.e., consistent, documented, and reusable), and validated (i.e., main results from the paper) artifacts. Each submitted artifact is evaluated by at least two members of the AEC. During the process, authors and evaluators are allowed to communicate anonymously with each other to overcome technical difficulties. Ideally, we hope to see all submitted artifacts successfully pass the artifact evaluation. More details on the AE process will follow.
Finally, we are seeking volunteers to take part of the AE Committee. If you are interested in taking part of this initiative please fill out this form
