Anyone may submit a paper for inclusion in the HHC 2011 Proceedings. You need not attend the conference to submit a paper.
Papers may be about anything related to the use or design of programmable handheld computing devices, especially (but not limited to) those made by Hewlett-Packard. Papers in previous HHC Proceedings have been primarily about techniques (hardware, software, and implementation issues); system design; specific applications (from serious work to leisurely pastimes); evaluation of HP designs; emulators; and collectors’ information.
Each page must have a blank 1-inch margin on the edge that we will hole-punch (left edge on odd-numbered pages, and right edge on even-numbered pages). Also leave a 1-inch margin at the bottom of the paper; the HHC Conference Committee will add the appropriate footer, which includes the Proceedings page number, the date, and the HHC 2011 logo (see below). Pages must be formatted for “letter” size paper (8.5 inches wide, 11 inches long).
The Conference Proceedings are produced in black and white. If your paper contains any color pages, then you must, at your own expense, produce enough copies of those pages for inclusion in every copy of the Proceedings. We must have them in hand by the evening before the Conference, in time for the traditional Proceedings Stuffing Party.
No paper has ever been edited or rejected for any of our past conferences. All papers submitted to HHC 2011 should be original, unpublished work. Any paper that has been previously published in equivalent or substantially similar form by any other conference or in any other journal may be rejected. This is not an absolute rule and any paper that meets the goal of the Conference will be considered. Copyrights to others must be respected.
Submissions are treated as confidential communications during the review process, so submission does not constitute public disclosure of any ideas therein. Submissions should contain no information or materials that will be proprietary or confidential at the time of publication (September 24, 2011), and should cite no publications that are proprietary or confidential at the time of publication.
To submit your paper, just email it to Richard Nelson before September 17.
