Instructions for Authors

Your contributions, presenting original work, are expected in the form of regular papers, special session papers, by the deadline of 15 July 2018.

Proposals from potential Special Session organisers are also expected by 15 May 2018, addressing more specific topics within the general scope of the Symposium.

All papers must be submitted in the final format to be published in the Symposium proceedings and IEEE Xplore®. They must not exceed 4 pages (A4 size) with all illustrations and references included. The size of the PDF file submitted should not exceed 2MBytes.

Papers submitted for review must clearly state:

The purpose of the work
How and to what extent it advances the state-of-the-art
Specific results and their impact

The degree to which the paper deals with the above issues is fundamental to a successful review and selection of the paper. The most frequent cause of rejections of submitted papers is a lack of new results. Only work that has not been previously published at the time of the Symposium will be considered. Duplicated submissions to concurrent Symposiums must be avoided.

All papers must conform to IEEE Formatting Guidelines. Please, check the Symposium website for additional information.
