Duplicate Submission Statement

A paper submitted to a conference will be considered to be a duplicate submission and rejected by that conference with no regard to the paper's scientific merit if there is substantial overlap in the technical content of the conference submission and any other work that is:

  • under review at another publication,
  • has been accepted by another publication, or
  • has appeared in another publication, at any time before the conference review process is complete.

In this context, a "publication" is any peer-reviewed scientific archive such as a conference, journal, or technical book. The determination of substantial overlap in the technical content will be made by the program committee chairs.
