Submission procedure

All contributions are submitted electronically. Use the submission form to submit your paper. Please download and use following LaTeX style.

Some remarks to the provided style:

  • Headings and Abstract

    The heading must contain the title, full name, and address of the author(s), thesis supervisor, abstract of about 100-200 words.
  • Categories and Subject Descriptors

    Define category and subject descriptors according to ACM Computing Classification System.
  • Keywords

    Please specify 5 to 10 keywords.
  • Equations

    You may want to display math equations in three distinct styles: inline, numbered or non-numbered display (we recommend the numbered style). Please make sure that your equations are clearly formulated and described.
  • Figures and tables

    Figures and tables cannot be split across pages, the best placement for them is typically the top or the bottom of the page nearest their initial cite. To ensure this proper "floating" placement of figures/table, use the environment figure/table to enclose the figure and its caption.
  • References

    Please use BibTeX to automatically produce the bibliography. If possible use abbreviations like: Proceedings -- Proc., International -- Int., Conference -- Conf., Journal -- J.
  • Selected papers by the author

    This section is used for thesis extended abstracts. Please write down all publications which are related to your thesis.

Publishing procedure

All contributions are web-published. A contribution is published without unnecessary delay right after it has been accepted. Contributions are published on the fly in the current issue. It is at the discretion of the Editor in chief to determine, when the current issue is closed and a subsequent new one is open. There will 2 issues in a year but it is left up to the Editor-in-chief to adjust periodicity of the Bulletin to actual needs. It is the policy of the Bulletin to offer a free access to all its articles on the web. Moreover, the publisher will seek opportunities to promote as wide as possible access and/or indexing of the articles. All the past issues remain accessible on the web as part of the web portal of the Bulletin. Closed issues will be made available also in a printable form, free for downloading and printing by anyone interested.

Peer reviewing of journal articles

In all cases of journal articles accepted for publication, there is a strict peer reviewing process in place. It is, however, adjusted to the special types of articles that are solicited by this journal. We offer publishing extended abstracts on the Bulletin's associated web portal of dissertations before the thesis is defended. This preliminary publishing is a specific service to the academic community. Extended abstracts of theses is the primary type of article in the Bulletin. Each extended abstract will by annotated by identifying the thesis supervisor, who is the primary reviewing peer. His/her recommendation is a necessary condition for publication. Supervisor stands for the Editorial Board in a role of a reviewer. Other peers involved in reviewing are the thesis reviewers and ultimately, the defense committee. Only the successful outcome of the dissertation defense is considered sufficient for the acceptance decision. As soon as we learn about successful defense, the extended abstract gains the status of accepted paper and will be included in the forthcoming issue. The accepted paper will be annotated with the date of successful defense and name of the institution where the defense took place.

Publication ethics and publication malpractice statement

The Editorial Board does not tolerate plagiarism or other unethical behaviour and will remove any manuscript that does not meet these standards. Only papers that have not been published as copyrighted material elswhere in the same form, in any language, may be submitted. The authors confirm that their paper is their own, that is has not been copied or plagiarized, in whole or in part, from other works. Authors should cite publication that have been influential in determing the nature of the reported work. Manuscripts found to contain plagiarized content will be rejected and the authors of such manuscripts may face additional penalties. If a case of plagiarism is discovered after a manuscript has been published, the journal will publish a correction that identifies plagiarized content and gives credit to the actual source. Because plagiarism can sometimes occur unintentionally, for example, when authors cite a source that itself contains plagiarized content, all authors are strongly encouraged to make use of automated plagiarism screening tools to detect problems prior to submission. It is the responsibility of the author to indicate any conflict of interest with regard to funding or sponsorship of the research reported in the article, as well as the name and nature of the relationship with the funder/sponsor. The text of such disclosures should appear in the Acknowledgments section of the paper. By submitting a manuscript, the author(s) concur that the copyright will be transferred to Bulletin if the manuscript is accepted for publication. Reviewers and editors are required to declare any and all potential conflicts of interest. Problems are addressed by the Bulletin Editor in Chief who is committed to providing swift resolutions to disputes.
