Submission Instructions

  • Step 1: Login and enter CIVIL @ DSAA 2024 in EasyChair. Website:
  • Step 2: Select your role as "author". From the top menu, click the "New Submission" button.
  • Step 3: Enter your paper information and then use the "Submit" button at the bottom of the form.

Paper Length, Formatting, and Reviewing

  • The length of each paper submitted should be no more than 10 pages, and formatted following the standard 2-column U.S. letter style of IEEE Conference template. See the IEEE Proceedings Author Guidelines for further information and instructions.
  • All submissions will be blind reviewed by the Program Committee on the basis of technical quality, relevance to the conference's topics of interest, originality, significance, and clarity. Author names and affiliations must not appear in the submissions, and bibliographic references must be adjusted to preserve author anonymity. Submissions failing to comply with paper formatting and authors anonymity will be rejected without reviews.
  • Because of the double-blind review process, non-anonymous papers that have been issued as technical reports or similar cannot be considered for DSAA'2024. An exception to this rule applies to arXiv papers that were published in arXiv at least a month prior to DSAA'2024 submission deadline. Authors can submit these arXiv papers to DSAA provided that the submitted paper's title and abstract are different from the one appearing in arXiv.

Important Policies

Reproducibility & supplementary

The advancement of data science depends heavily on reproducibility. We strongly recommend that the authors release their code and data to the public. Authors can provide an optional two (2) page supplement at the end of their submitted paper (it needs to be in the same PDF file). This supplement can only be used to include:
  • (i) information necessary for reproducing the experimental results reported in the paper (e.g., various algorithmic and model parameters and configurations, hyper-parameter search spaces, details related to dataset filtering and train/test splits, software versions, detailed hardware configuration, etc.).
  • (ii) any data, pseudo-code and proofs that due to space limitations, could not be included in the main manuscript.


The list of authors at the time of submission is final and cannot be changed.

Dual submissions

DSAA is an archival publication venue as such submissions that have been previously published, accepted, or are currently under-review at peer-review publication venues (i.e., journals, conferences, workshops with published proceedings, etc.) are not permitted. DSAA has a strict no dual submission policy.

Conflicts of interest (COI)

COIs must be declared at the time of submission. COIs include employment at the same institution at the time of submission or in the past three years, collaborations during the past three years, advisor/advisee relationships, plus family and close friends.


At least one author of each accepted poster paper must register in full and attend the conference to present the poster. No-show posters will be removed from the IEEE Xplore proceedings.

AI Generated Text

The use of artificial intelligence (AI)-generated text in an article shall be disclosed in the acknowledgements section of any paper submitted to an IEEE Conference or Periodical. The sections of the paper that use AI-generated text shall have a citation to the AI system used to generate the text.
