Paper Submission


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

The link for abstract/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.



Please prepare the final version of your paper by taking in due consideration the comments and the suggestions of the reviewers. Your final version might have to be checked to ensure that the critical comments were addressed and that the recommended changes were made. In addition, please note that the final version should fundamentally correspond in length and contents to the submitted version, except for parts that might be added or modified to comply with the reviewers' suggestions. Please do not alter the final version in ways that make it weaker than that accepted by the YEF-ECE program committee.

Please leave the header and footer of every page in blank.

IEEE takes plagiarism very serious. Please clearly indicate reused material by using quotation marks or indententations, providing a full reference to the original material. Obtain written permission from the publisher or, if the reused material has not been published, obtain written permission from the original author.

For the paper's inclusion in the conference program, YEF-ECE policy requires that at least one of the authors of your paper must have paid the registration fee.

Note that for the manuscript to be included in the program and in the proceedings of the conference to be sent to IEEE Xplore, you must fulfil the following four conditions:
1. Upload of final version (IEEE Xplore-compliant PDF format) before the deadline of June 26, 2021. Log into the manuscript submission website ( and upload the final version.
2. Transfer of copyright to IEEE. Soon you will receive an email with instructions how to fulfil the electronic copyright form. This is mandatory to have the paper accepted in IEEE Xplore.
3. Registration of one of the authors. This needs to be done *BEFORE* June 26, 2021.
4. Present the paper at the conference, in the scheduled session.

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 (Letter) 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: 52297X when accessing the IEEE PDF eXpress system.

C. Sign and submit copyright to IEEE
