Review and Acceptance Process

DVCon US 2023 will use 2-stage review process.  After the TPC reviews the submitted abstracts, authors may receive a Preliminary Acceptance.  This is an invitation to submit a full paper for review.  The TPC will review the Final submitted full paper to determine if the submission will be accepted for presentation at DVCon.

Abstract submissions are double-blind, please remove the author information.

All other submissions should include the author information.

Because of the delayed submission deadline for DVCon U.S. 2024, extensions will not be provided at any point during the submission process. If the guidelines/deadlines are not followed, DVCon will remove your submission

Speaker Policy

All speakers are expected to present in person.

If the presenter can’t present in person, the speaker is responsible for finding an alternative speaker that can present in person (should be a co-author).

  • If no co-authors can present in person and thus an alternative speaker can not be found, then it is up to the committee to determine if the presentation will remain in the program.

Pre-recorded videos will NOT be played onsite. The pre-recorded videos are for quality assurance purposes, for the Accellera archives, and/or in the case that DVCon U.S. moves virtual.

  • Pre-recorded videos are required for all authors.
  • Pre-recorded videos are optional for tutorial, workshop, and panel speakers.
