Camera-ready submission

  • Address as much of reviewers feedback as possible and proof-read your manuscript.
  • Add IEEE copyright notice (see instructions below).
  • Validate your PDF using IEEE PDF eXpress site (see instructions below). The site will embed validation tags inside your PDF. Without these tags, the paper will not be included in IEEEXplore.
  • Submit your validated PDF to EasyChair.
  • Sign copyright release form when required (instructions from IEEE will be e-mailed to all corresponding authors).

The appropriate copyright notice is to appear at the bottom of the first page of each paper according to the guidelines set forth in the Cataloguing/Copyright Instructions for an IEEE Conference Proceeding. The copyright notice should appear about 1 cm below the left column, and should be aligned to the left with the same left margin as the column.

The copyright notice to be added depends on the circumstances as follows:

For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright

For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: : 978-1-7281-4187-9/19/$31.00 ©2019 Crown

For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 978-1-7281-4187-9/19/$31.00 ©2019 European Union

For all other papers, the copyright notice is: 978-1-7281-4187-9/19/$31.00 ©2019 IEEE

You may want to first prepare your PDF and then add the copyright notice separately using a PDF editing programme.

If you using LaTeX with IEEEtran document class, this may help:

  • Add the following code before the \maketitle command

\IEEEpubid{\makebox[\columnwidth]{978-1-7281-4187-9/19/\$31.0\textcopyright{}2019 IEEE \hfill}

\hspace{\columnsep}\makebox[\columnwidth]{ }}

  • Add the following code after the \maketitle command
  • Make sure you use the appropriate IEEE copyright notice string, as explained above.

Paper Submission

Please format your paper according to the IEEE Conference Format. Templates in LaTeX and Word (A4) format are available here .

This conference uses EasyChair to manage paper submissions: please click here to access the submission page. We ask that you only submit full manuscripts (with a maximum of six pages in length). Upon submission, you will shortly receive an acknowledgement email along with a paper submission ID number. Please use this ID number in any future correspondence.
Submitted manuscripts are subject to a peer review process. After review, authors of papers will be notified via email, see key dates above. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to either present their paper via a 20 minute oral presentation (15-minute presentation, 5-minute open Q&A session) or a poster presentation.
In order for a paper to be presented orally or in a poster session, at least one author must register and attend the conference. The paper will not be published in the conference proceedings otherwise. Those presenting in the poster session are asked to be present during the session.
