Author guidelines

In order to guide the reviewing process, all authors who intend to submit a paper must first submit the title, abstract (max. 200 words) and author information of their paper. Abstracts are used only to point out your interest to submit a full paper and to allow us to initiate the search for possible reviewers early in time. Papers must describe original work that has not been previously published or submitted elsewhere. Reviewers will check for plagiarism in all submissions using the iThenticate tool. Submissions must be written in English and formatted according to the IEEE formatting instructions. The proceedings will be published in IEEE eXplore, and approved by IEEE Computer Society. There is a possibility that selected papers will be considered for a special issue journal. The details of the special issue journal will be announced later.

The papers can have up to 8 pages in length (7 pages for the paper body and 1 page for references). Papers that exceed the length specification (see above categories) or are not formatted correctly will be desk-rejected without review. Please note that only full paper submissions will be peer reviewed. Abstract-only submissions will be discarded without further notice after the submission deadline. At least one author of each accepted paper must register to and attend the conference in order to present their paper.
