Submission Guidelines

At eSim 2022, we solicit two types of submissions:

  • Regular papers (eight pages)
  • Notes papers (four pages)

Notes papers are intended to discuss preliminary research results, present new research directions, describe new software or datasets. Notes papers are a new paper submission type to eSim to encourage young researchers and research teams entering this field of research to share their work and industry participants that may not be able to devote resources to a full paper. Notes papers will be assessed based on the novelty of ideas, potential for impact, and quality of presentation.

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not be currently under review for any other publication. Submissions must be single-spaced US Letter (8.5” x 11”) pages, including figures, tables, references and appendices. All submissions must follow the Word Template or LaTeX Template.
