Plagiarism & Re-use

Plagiarism and Excessive Re-use of Earlier Material

The content of any submissions should be original (see General Guidelines page) and must not be submitted simultaneously for consideration towards publication in any other conference or journal. All submissions will be checked for plagiarism using IEEE CrossCheck. Possible violations will be reported to IEEE for further investigation. Reuse of material previously published by the authors is possible under the conditions that the authors fully disclose (cite) the reference and clearly highlight the innovative contribution in the SA2020 submission as well as the significance of this contribution.

The decision to deem any work plagiarized is going to be made based on an in-depth examination of both the submitted paper and sources that have similar text. Keep in mind that if the overlap with previous publications of the same authors is too excessive, reviewers and PC members may find the contribution not original and significant enough.
