IEEE Space Mission Challenges for Information Technology - IEEE Space Computing Conference
Caltech, Pasadena, CA, USA - 18-21 July 2023


The SMC-IT/SCC 2023 Technical Committee is seeking four kinds of submissions at this time: full papers, presentations, posters, and mini-workshop proposals.

Full papers with presentation (both SMC-IT and SCC)

SMC-IT/SCC 2023 will again use a single-pass, full-paper review process. Full papers can be up to 10 pages in length and require a verbal presentation. For full papers submitted to SCC, a separate abstract (between four paragraphs and one page in length) *must* be submitted first, which will be used by the PC to identify the appropriate reviewers efficiently. Authors of full papers must submit a final version of their paper of up to 10 pages at the outset, plus references.

All papers accepted for SMC-IT/SCC 2023 will be published in the IEEE conference proceedings, indexed in the IEEE Xplore database. Note that IEEE has a "Podium and Publish" policy for conferences, which means that no manuscript will be published in IEEE Xplore without first being presented at the conference. Some selected papers may be invited to appear in a special issue of a reputable journal in the field.

Poster submissions (both SMC-IT and SCC)

Proposals for posters can be up to 2 pages in length. Poster authors or teams will be given multiple opportunities to discuss their work with interested attendees in poster sessions. Successful poster proposals will receive further guidance on the exact size and format for their posters. We particularly encourage college students to participate and submit original paper and poster contributions.

Presentations without accompanying papers (only SCC)

Authors of presentations which will not have a corresponding paper need to submit a 1-page abstract, which will allow the conference organizers to determine if the proposed presentation is germane for the conference, determine which track/session the proposed presentation belongs and ensure the author is in contact with the track/session chair for feedback prior to the final submission. All presentation-only abstract submissions must be submitted by the initial abstract submission deadline.

All accepted presentations will be distributed to the conference attendees, with the consent of the author and their organization, but will not be published in the IEEE Xplore database.

Mini-workshop submissions (only SMC-IT)

SMC-IT 2023 will continue the highly successful mini-workshop session format to explore specific emerging technology themes in greater depth. Each mini-workshop typically runs as one track for one day, or one or two half days, and may incorporate invited and/or contributed papers.

To propose a mini-workshop topic, please submit a 1-2 page abstract including the theme, scope, and goals of your workshop idea, as well as any potential speakers already identified. Please also indicate whether you prefer a full-day, or one or two half-day time-slots.

Other Submissions (both SMC-IT and SCC)

The SMC-IT/SCC committee is also planning on holding an "Unclassified, US Persons Only” session and a “Classified Session” hosted by the Aerospace Corporation. If you are interested in submitting a presentation for either of these sessions, please contact the chairs at:

All submissions to both tracks (SMC-IT and SCC) are handled via the links below.
