Policy on Multiple Submissions:

RSS will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review for publication in a book, journal, proceedings, or other archival medium, nor will it accept papers that have been published or accepted for publication in any archival medium. Authors are also expected not to submit their papers elsewhere during the RSS reviewing period. These restrictions apply only to journals and conferences, not to workshops and similar specialized presentations with a limited audience and without archival proceedings.
