Submission Guidelines

The Authors should only submit original work that has not been published before and is not under submission to any other venue.

TMA 2020 has a double blind submission policy – author names and affiliations should not be included. The same guidelines for double-blind submission as used by the ACM IMC conference apply. Please consult ACM IMC 2019 for guidance on how to anonymize your paper.

Submissions must not exceed 8 pages in IEEE 2-column style, including references. Use the standard IEEE Transactions templates for Latex or MS Word found here.

If the paper is typeset in LaTeX, please use an unmodified version of the LaTeX template IEEEtran.cls version 1.8b, and use the preamble: \documentclass[10pt, conference, letterpaper]{IEEEtran}

Please do not use additional LaTeX commands or packages to override and change the default typesetting choices in the template, including line spacing, font sizes, margins, space between the columns, and font types. This implies that the manuscript must use 10 point Times font, two-column formatting, as well as all default margins and line spacing requirements as dictated by the original version of IEEEtran.cls version 1.8b.

If you are using Microsoft Word to format your paper, you should use an unmodified version of the Microsoft Word IEEE Transactions template (US letter size).

Regardless of the source of your paper formatting, you must submit your paper electronically, in Portable Document Format (PDF). Papers must print clearly and legibly, including all the figures, on standard black-and-white printers.

Submissions that do not comply with all requirements above will be rejected without further review.

Submission Website

Papers must be submitted at, by creating a personal account. The article metadata, including title, up-to-250-word abstract, and authors list, must be provided before the paper registration deadline.
