14th IFAC (International Federation of Automatic Control) Symposium on System Identification, SYSID 2006, March 29-31


Regular and Invited Final Papers

The peer assessment of all regular and invited papers is now complete, with resulting acceptance/rejection decisions emailed to corresponding authors on November 8th, 2005.

In the case of accepted papers, final submissions must be uploaded by December 2nd, 2005 according to steps 1-3 detailed below.

Essential points regarding final paper submissions are:

  • As detailed in the acceptance emails, reviewer comments on submitted papers may be viewed by logging in using assigned PIN at the paper submission web site.
  • Authors are strongly encouraged to consider reviewer comments and, where possible, revise their initial submissions to accommodate them.
  • Following this revision, final submissions must be formatted according to the detailed instructions. In particular, they must be no more than 6 pages, and should be typeset in two column format, 10 point Times Roman font.
  • Format checking during upload of final paper submission is more rigorous than for initial paper submission. In the latter case, only page numbers were checked.
  • For final submissions, many other aspects such as consistency with margin, font embedding and paper size specifications will be checked. As such, it may well be the case that the format of your initial submission will require modification before it can be accepted as a final submission.
  • Regarding the above, the paper submission web site provides diagnostic tools should your paper fail any acceptance criterion.
  • Note also, that in order to provide the highest quality presentation of the final preprints, a hand checking of all submissions will be made by the CDROM publishers, who may require (and provide assistance) via email for further modifications of your final submission that are necessary for final acceptance.
  • Final paper submission is linked to registration in the following way. At least one author of a paper must have paid a full registration fee before the final submission is accepted for upload. Please consult the registration page for detailed instructions.
  • If a final paper submission is not uploaded by December 2nd, it will be deleted from the Symposium Program.
