Paper selection process

The authors are asked to submit an extended abstract (EA) prior to the date of EA submission (see dedicated list of important dates). The EA will be submitted through the conference web site (the paper submission site will be open on 25.3.2015). After submission, the authors will be assigned an identification number, which will be used for further communication as well as for identification of the payment of the conference fee.

The extended abstract shall use the same template as the final paper. It shall however have the length of 1 to 2 pages. The extended abstract shall include the following major issues:

  • Title
  • Authors and affiliations

    • Motivation / Problem area
    • State of the art in research/practice

The authors are further expected to submit full paper until the date of final paper submission. The paper must follow the IEEE author’s guidelines and templates. As for the extended abstracts, the conference web site will be used for paper submission.

The organizers aim to include selected papers in IEEE conference proceedings. If successful, this proceeding will be published after the conference. The authors would be contacted by the editors with further details.
