In recent years, the ASC has published conference proceedings after the event, allowing papers to benefit from presentation and discussion at the conference. We regard this as an enhancement of the reviewing process.
We have, on each occasion, negotiated publication in a special issue of a high quality journal. We will continue this practice for the proceedings of the 2012 ASC/BIG conference.
Thus, our conference proceedings will be published in the major international peer-reviewed journal, Kybernetes.
We recommend that people who intend to submit papers for peer review plan on approximately 3,000 words for the final version to be conveyed to the conference committee after the conference. (The due date for submitting finished papers will be announced as we complete negotiations with Kybernetes.)
