We welcome contributions through research papers and industrial reports/case studies on applications in form of regular papers of up to 7 pages, double-column IEEE style, which will be presented in plenary presentations and poster sessions. In addition, we welcome short research papers & industry reports of 4 pages which will be presented in informal poster sessions. Accepted submissions include:

  • regular research papers (7 pages IEEE style, formal presentation)
  • regular industry & application reports (7 pages IEEE style, formal presentation)
  • short research papers (4 pages IEEE style, poster presentation)
  • short industry & application reports (max. 4 pages IEEE style, poster presentation)

General Guidelines (Draft Papers)

Prospective authors are invited to submit their draft paper (between 1 to 7 pages, standard 2 column IEEE style) by March 23, 2009 (file size limitation: 5.0 MB). Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for presentation or publication elsewhere.

Different to practice at other WORLDCOMP'09 conference, DMIN'09 uses an online conference management and paper submission system, to which the draft papers must be submitted online, in IEEE-format and exclusively as a PDF-file. Please follow the formatting instructions for the draft paper:

    • Paper Size: US Letter format (8.5" x 11") or A4 (210 X 297 mm)
    • Paper Length: Maximum 7 pages, including figures, tables & references
    • Paper formatting: double column, single spaced, 10pt font.
    • Margins: Left, Right, and Bottom: 0.75" (19mm). The top margin must be 0.75" in (19 mm), except for the title page where it must be 1" (25 mm).
    • Do not number your manuscript pages.
    • The first page must include:
      • Title of the paper
      • Name, affiliation, postal address, E-mail address, telephone number, and fax number for each author
      • Underline the name of the author who will be presenting the paper (if accepted) - This will not be required for the camera ready version! 
      • a maximum of 5 keywords - This will not be required for the camera ready version! 

Violations of any of the above paper specifications may result in rejection of your paper!

You may download preliminary information on the IEEE style below. Please consider, that although these files are IEEE information for submissions to the WCCI'06 conference, they are also the requirement for the DMIN'09. This information may be updated for the final camera ready submission to the WORLDCOMP online paper collection system.

Online Submission of the Draft Paper

To submit your paper please visit the online conference system for DMIN'09 hosted by conference master. Please submit papers as soon as possible to ensure early feedback (deadline: March 23, 2009). Please click on the button below to access to the DMIN conference management system:


If your submission belongs to a special session, please select the appropriate track within the submission system!

The submission system is closed now.

Review Process

Papers will be evaluated for originality, significance, clarity, and soundness. Each paper will be refereed by two researchers in the topical area. To reflect upon feedback from last year we will extend the constructive feedback given within the review. Please consult the pages for the Review Process for additional Information.

We particularly encourage submissions of industrial applications and case studies from practitioners. To reflect the requirements of an application or project centric case study presentation, these will be subject to different review criteria. In particular, they will not be evaluated using predominantly theoretical research criteria of originality etc., but will take general interest and presentation stronger into consideration. The camera-ready papers will be reviewed by one person.

Final Papers - Registration and Submission

The final camera ready papers will have to be submitted via WORLDCOMP's online paper collecting system combined with a registration process. The camera-ready paper has to be uploaded to the WORLDCOMP conferences publication site (NOT the DMIN’09 paper submission system that was used for collecting your draft papers) and the registration fee must be received by WORLDCOMP as indicated on the WORLDCOMP website by May 12, 2009. Please be advised that your paper will NOT be published in the proceedings nor indexed at ISI etc. should none of the authors be registered by the registration deadline.

Author instructions and links to important websites are provided by the notification of acceptance.
