Paper Selection Process

Papers for oral and poster presentation are selected by the SpaceWire 2013 Technical Committee. Each paper is reviewed by three reviewers drawn randomly from the Technical Committee. The papers are scored in four different areas (relevance to aims of the conference, originality, innovativeness, and impact). The scores are summed for each area and for each reviewer to give a total score for the paper. Papers are then ranked according to their score, with a cut-off for oral presentation and for poster presentation, according to the number of presentations and posters that can be accommodated. The Conference Committee have the right to promote no more than four papers from poster to oral presentation to ensure a balanced agenda for the conference. Once the paper selection has been completed authors are informed and the conference programme published on the conference website.

Paper Submittal and Guidelines

Please use the following paper template to produce your paper - Full Paper Template (.doc file).

Please send your completed paper in both Word and pdf file formats by email to spacewire(at) with the subject title SpW2013 Paper##, where ## is your paper number which can be found on the conference programme page of this website.

All authors including those presenting a poster are required to submit a paper for inclusion in the proceedings. Failure to provide the required paper in the requested format on time will result in the paper being withdrawn from the conference programme.

The deadline for full paper submission is 26th March 2013.

Authors whose paper has been accepted into the poster session will present a poster in the poster session rather than give an oral presentation of their paper.
