Paper Submissions and Publications

Paper Submission

The organizers seek original, novel and innovative papers containing experimental results and theories. Papers addressing topics related to the conference themes should be submitted electronically via PaperPlaza in the indicated format and length below. You can also submit a video as a supplementary material along with your manuscript, for instance to demonstrate your experimental results.

All contributed papers will get through a peer-review process. A manuscript will be reviewed by at least two referees, who will leave review comments. When the paper is finally accepted in oral or poster presentation, the author should submit a revised final version that reflects reviewers’ comments. All accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings on IEEE Xplore.

The contents of the manuscripts should not be submitted simultaneously for any other else publications in conference or journal. All submissions will be checked by the iThenticate tool for plagiarism and self-plagiarism. In case of plagiarism or self-plagiarism, all results will be reported to IEEE for further investigation.
