Paper Submission


Submission of papers and/or creation of accounts is done through EasyChair Conference System.

The link for paper submission is the following:

Prospective authors are invited to electronically submit full regular papers of their work. English is the working language of the Conference. Papers are limited to six (6) pages. Up to two (2) additional pages can be accepted, but additional page fees must be paid with registration.

Authors must adhere to the IEEE Conference written paper format. The author must submit the draft version of the paper for review before the due submission deadline. IEEE is very strict about the requirements for PDF files for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library. We strongly recommend to use the set of templates in MS Word and LaTeX format provided by IEEE. Please use them to create your paper, but don't modify the style nor the format under any circumstances:

Submit only original work, not previously published or copyrighted. Prospective authors are expected to submit only their own original works. The Conference will be using the CrossCheck automated screening system to help verify originality of papers. Submitted works may be compared to over 20 million articles in databases worldwide. Papers that violate IEEE's publication principles may be summarily rejected. If the violation is deemed severe, then disciplinary actions may also be taken by IEEE.



Technical papers accepted for the Conference after the peer review process may be published in the final technical program, and may be indexed in IEEE Xplore and EI Compendex, subject to final approval by the Conference Technical Committee. Authors wishing to publish a technical paper must agree to items below:

A. The first author should be a young engineer or a graduating MSc student

B. Adhere to the Conference written paper format

English is the working language of the Conference. Papers are limited to six (A4) sized pages. Up to 2 additional pages can be accepted.

Templates for written papers are available in:

Due to unavoidable differences between computer programs, authors may detect very slight differences between these templates. Papers following any of these templates, and conforming to IEEE PDF requirements, will be acceptable.

Papers must be converted to IEEE Xplore-compliant PDF format. Information about proper PDF format is detailed in this document. Authors are encouraged to use the free IEEE PDF eXpress system to convert their files. Use the code ID: 40578X when accessing the IEEE PDF eXpress system.

C. Sign and submit copyright to IEEE

Signing and submission will be performed electronically through the online submission system, when final versions of papers are submitted.
