======Information for Authors======
NEW FOR 2016: The length of Technical Papers is limited to 8 pages, but the References section will NOT count toward the page limit. Thus, authors should not feel pressure to omit references due to page limits.
NEW FOR 2016: Authors will have an opportunity to submit a "Rebuttal" after viewing the reviews of the Technical Paper submission, prior to the final acceptance decisions.
As in 2015, ASSETS will utilize a double-blind review process for Technical Papers, in which the authors must anonymize their paper submissions. For guidelines, please see <Technical Papers| http://assets16.sigaccess.org/technical_papers.html>
For information about other categories of submission, including Posters and Demo papers, the doctoral consortium, and the student research competition, please look for updates at <Information for Authors| http://assets16.sigaccess.org/call_for_papers.html>.
