Submissions


Authors are welcome to submit papers that relate to any topic within the realm of teaching of Computer Science or Information Systems. Papers should be 6-8 A4 pages long and should follow the ACM Proceedings format (If you require the MS Word template please send a request to sacla2012@ufs.ac.za). Submissions should be in PDF format with all fonts embedded in the document. All tables and figures should be included in the paper and should be in a format that allows for suitable rendering in monochrome.

Each paper will be anonymously reviewed by at least two reviewers. The program committee will consider the following criteria when evaluating submitted papers: originality of contribution; relevance to the conference; technical/scientific merit; and presentation and clarity.

The proceedings will have an ISBN and accepted papers are likely to qualify as subsidy earning publications. Authors will be expected to act as reviewers for SACLA 2012. At least one author must be willing to attend and present the paper at the conference.

The submitted paper must be anonymous, i.e. papers should exclude any information that can identify the author. Authors' names should be removed from the submission, with "Author" and year used in the bibliography and footnotes, instead of authors' name, paper title, etc. In addition, all identifying information in file properties should be removed. E.g. Microsoft Office documents (including Supplementary Files) should be saved by going to File and selecting Save As; clicking Tools (or Options in a Mac); clicking Security; selecting "Remove personal information from file properties on save"; and clicking Save.

Papers should be submitted as a PDF attachment to sacla2012@ufs.ac.za.
