Paper Submission

Papers must be formatted according to the instructions in the SLT 2021 Paper Kit.

Paper Kit (opens in a new window)

Please read the entire paper kit carefully to verify that your paper document is formatted correctly and that you have all the information you need before starting your paper submission. The paper kit contains detailed instructions on formatting your document and completing the submission process, as well as a description of how the review process works and how to prepare for your presentation at the conference if your paper is accepted.


The paper submission deadline is 14 August 2020 and the paper revision deadline is 21 August, 2020. Note that the authors will not be able to change the title of their submission, list of authors and the submission track after 14 August, 2020. The authors can revise technical contents of the manuscript (including abstract) until 21 August, 2020. All deadlines will be observed based on ‘Anywhere on Earth’ (AoE) time.

The review procedure for SLT 2021 will be double-blind. Authors must NOT submit their paper to arXiv, ResearchGate or other public platforms that reveal authors' identity during the review process. The anonymity period will be from 14 August, 2020 to the announcement of acceptance decisions.

During the anonymity period, you may not make a non-anonymized version of your paper available online to the general community (for example, via a preprint server). Versions of the paper include papers having essentially the same scientific content but possibly differing in minor details (including title and structure) and/or in length.

If you have posted a non-anonymized version of your paper online before the start of the anonymity period, you may submit an anonymized version to the conference. You may not update the non-anonymized version during the anonymity period, and we ask you not to advertise it on social media or take other actions that would further compromise double-blind reviewing during the anonymity period.
