How to submit

All papers must conform exactly to the IEEE conference paper template, with the exception of a six-page limit being applied (rather than five). The template can be downloaded from here: IEEE Template.

Publishing of two papers per full registration, or one paper per student registration, is included in the fee. A student can publish one additional paper by paying the $200 extra fee. 

Papers need to be submitted via the electronic submission system by:

  1. visiting the submission site for the conference
  2. registering as a new user
  3. creating a new submission.

Your submission will be peer reviewed by two reviewers and you will be advised of the outcome in due course.

At least one author of each accepted paper must register for the full conference. Papers will not be sent to the IEEE Xplore digital library unless presented by an author.

Day registrations are only available to those who do not have an accepted paper.
