Paper Length

Technical papers must be six pages in length, including all figures and the bibliography. Papers which are clearly overlength will not be reviewed. This includes papers where the margins and formatting are deemed to have been significantly altered from those laid down by this style guide.

Review papers are also welcome. The main body of review papers may not exceed the six page limit, but the total length may be up to eight pages including references.

Paper Policy

Double blind review: MIUA operates a double-blind review process. Your review submission must not identify you as the author. This means, in particular, that the author list should be replaced by the words “MIUA YYYY Submission # NNN”. The provided LaTeX command \miuareviewcopy does this automatically. In addition, acknowledgements should not be included in the review copy. Please read Section 1.4 of the example paper [PDF] for detailed instructions on how to preserve anonymity.
