Student Research Papers

CCSCE is a refereed conference. All the submitted student papers are subjected to a review by the conference committee.  Student authors of accepted papers are expected to register for the conference and present their work at the conference. Papers presented at the conference will not be included in the journal, but will be acknowledged in the conference program. On this page, you will find links to information and instructions for paper submission.

Doctoral students may consider submitting papers as a student, but these papers are not peer reviewed or published.  If you are looking for that, please submit your work as a faculty paper.

Paper Formatting Instructions

As papers will not be published, there are no formatting guidelines.  If you would like to practice how to format papers, you can find formatting instructions here.

Paper Submission Instructions

First, create an account on our conference submission and review system. Using this system, you can submit your student research paper for review. This process involves submitting information about your paper and yourself on-line, as well as uploading your paper. If you are submitting more than one paper, you can upload additional submissions, but do not need additional accounts. Please make sure of the following with regard to the paper you submit:

If you experience problems with this site, please email the papers chair for assistance.

Paper Resubmission Instructions

If you decide to resubmit your paper for any reason do not register the paper online again. You can use the conference submission system to upload a new copy of the paper. This must (and can!) be done before the paper submission deadline. Subsequent uploads will be handled on a case-by-case basis with the papers chair through the paper submission system. Do not email the updated paper to the chair, but feel free to contact him/her.

Paper Acceptance/Non-Acceptance

You will be notified of the status of your submission, typically in June or July depending on when the conference committee can meet.  If your paper has been accepted to the conference, at least one author must register for the conference and ultimately appear at the conference to present the paper.

Presenting the Paper

Accepted papers will be presented at the conference by at least one of the student authors.  Students will be provided 10-15 minutes to present their research.  Each conference room will be equipped with at least a computer projector and a laptop connection to the projector (types of connections will vary).  Please do not assume that there will be computers or laptops available.  For additional A/V facilities, please contact the conference chair(s).  We will try to accommodate all reasonable requests.
