Key documents for downloading

There are a number of different submission formats, please ensure that you use the correct format for your submission.

The most important distinction to make is between BLIND PEER REVIEWED (Refereed papers) and REVIEWED FOR SUITABILITY (Non-refereed papers).
All submissions to WCCE2013 will be reviewed by at least two reviewers; the difference is to do with the criteria applied to those reviews.

All submissions will use the WCCE2013 template and the styles prescribed within that document. Failure to comply with the template and the use of styles may result in non-acceptance.
