The program committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its general accessibility to the VEE audience. Papers will be judged on significance, originality, relevance, correctness, and clarity. The abstract and introduction must be written so that they can be understood by an audience with varied expertise. The paper should clearly identify what has been accomplished, why it is significant, and how it compares with previous work. Papers in new areas or novel approaches to existing areas are especially encouraged. It is acceptable for papers in new areas to contain fewer quantitative evaluations and comparisons than those in more established areas. Suggestions on how to prepare a good submission can be found here and here.
