Submission Guidelines

A double blind review process will be used for this year's AusDM. This means that author and referee names will only be known to the organisation committee, and author's names will only be made available after the paper review, ranking and acceptance process.

This requires that paper submissions must NOT include author names and affiliations, and must also not include acknowledgements referring to funding bodies.

The length of the submissions is not restricted, however, we encourage submissions of around 8 to 12 pages. Paper submission are required to follow the general style specified for papers in the Conferences in Research and Practice in Information Technology (CRPIT) series by the Australian Computer Society.

LaTeX is the suggested and preferred typesetter.

Please note that submissions that are not following the CRPIT style and are not formatted for double blind review will be rejected without being reviewed by the program committee.

When preparing your paper, please follow these steps:

  1. Download the style files from the CRPIT authors Web page:


  2. Set the author details to:

    Submitted for Blind Review

    For LaTeX, this corresponds to:

    \author{Submitted for Blind Review}

  3. Set the affiliation details to empty. For LaTeX, this corresponds to:


  4. It is possible to keep necessary self-citing references, however, make sure you refer to your own prior work in the same way as you refer to any prior work by other authors. For example, rather than writing:

    "As we have shown earlier (Smith 1999), this method is...",

    you should re-phrase this to, for example:

    "As has been shown earlier in (Smith 1999), this method is..."

    Authors should, however, exclude any references to their own previous work (such as technical reports) that is not fundamental to understanding the submitted paper. Such references can be added for the final camera-ready paper after successful acceptance.

  5. When submitting the PDF version of your paper, do NOT use your name as file name, rather use a name that is descriptive of your paper. For example, rather than submitting a paper named:


    use a file name such as:
