1. INFOCOMP publishes original scientific and technological papers in English. The papers should be related to Computer Science.

2. The papers should be submitted in PDF format without authors’ informations using the JEMS system ( of the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). Login and password are necessary and they can be obtained on-line in the JEMS system.

3. The papers should follow the INFOCOMP format: Paper Letter (21.5x28.0cm), 1.1 line spacing, Times New Roman 10, justified text, with superior, inferior, left and right margins of 2.5 cm.

Figures and tables may occupy the page width, if necessary. The figure and table titles should be numerated and centralized below them.

7. The references should be numerated and listed in alphabetical order. Ex: [5] Hougardy, S. Even pairs and the strong perfect graph conjecture, Discrete Math. .154, p.277-288, 1996. Citations should be made based on the number of the reference. “In [5], it was proved that...” is an example of citation.

8. Footnotes may be accepted, when strongly necessary, for explanations that cannot be included in the text, such as: (a) name of the research institution; (b) support organizations and other financial supports; (c) reference to the publication as part of M.Sc. or PhD thesis; (d) personal communication.

9. The authors give the right of publishing and formatting the articles upon submission.

10. Non compliance with these rules will result in the non acceptance of the paper.

11. Publications in the INFOCOMP are free of charge.
