TAC 2020-One Paper Submission Template and Guidelines for Authors

TAC 2020-One Abstract Template

Complete technical papers must be submitted by July 16, 2021 using the online submission feature of this website available at http://www.tac2020.ca/abstract-submission.php. The Author's Release, Declaration and Understanding has been incorporated into the online submission process - all corresponding authors must select "Yes" in the Copyright Permission field or the paper will not be uploaded to the site. After uploading your paper, please complete the Update Secondary Authors page in order to identify the presenting author.

If the abstract in your final paper has been revised since your original submission, please be sure to also update the revised abstract during the paper uploading process (using the TAC 2020-One Abstract Template) to ensure your paper’s synopsis in the online conference app is correct.

The TAC 2020-One Toronto Technical Committee will review all papers for clarity, technical merit and relevance to the conference. The committee's goal is to inform corresponding authors of their paper's acceptance by the end of July. In cases where the reviewing team feels revisions are necessary, comments will be provided with revised papers being due by August 15, 2021.

All accepted papers, for which the corresponding author or one of the co-authors has registered for the conference by August 15, 2021, will appear in the published proceedings of the conference - each TAC 2020-One Toronto registrant will receive a digital version as part of their delegate registration.

To help authors ensure their paper meets the conference's presentation requirements, we have prepared a Paper Submission Template and Guidelines for Authors. All authors must follow this template to help ensure presentation uniformity in the conference proceedings - submissions that do not follow the prescribed formatting guidelines may be returned.

Final decisions regarding paper acceptance and the assigned session for submitted papers will rest with the Technical Committee. Questions regarding the paper review process, sessions and the technical program should be directed to the TAC 2020-One Toronto Technical Committee by e-mail at techcommittee@tac2020.ca.
