Paper Submission Instructions

Authors are invited to submit full or short papers for presentation at the conference. Full papers (no more than 8 camera-ready pages, 10pt font in IEEE two-column format) should present novel perspectives within the general scope of the conference. Short papers are an opportunity to present preliminary or interim results and are limited to 4 camera-ready pages in length. Short papers will be presented in a poster format and published in the proceedings. Only original papers that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere can be submitted. Papers in excess of page limits shall not be considered for review or publication. All papers must include title, complete contact information for all authors, abstract, and keywords on the cover page.

A best paper will be selected based on the quality of research and results, as well as on the quality of presentation by the primary author.

Please format your submission using the guidelines provided in sample_manuscript.pdf. The guidelines are implemented in the following templates:

  • Template for Microsoft Word users is here
  • Template for LaTex users (Unix) is here (use "bare_conf.tex")
  • Template for LaTex users (Windows/Macintosh) is here (use "bare_conf.tex")

Authors are required to submit their papers through the EDAS web site ( in three steps:

  1. Creation of a personal account on EDAS (if you are new to EDAS)
  2. Registration of the paper (requiring a short abstract of up to 150 words)
  3. Upload of the paper, in PDF format only

Authors can always reload their manuscripts before the deadline. The newly uploaded manuscript will overwrite the existing one. For help with EDAS please contact the EDAS Administrator (

Authors should also be aware of the following conditions:

  • It is a requirement that all authors listed in the submitted paper are also listed in EDAS. Note that the author section of EDAS will be "locked" at the conference submission deadline. After the conference submission deadline, the list of authors can only be modified by sending a request to the Program Chairs, who will decide on a case-by-case basis based on the reasons provided. This policy is to ensure that conflict-of-interest can be properly enforced during review. It also avoids situations where an author submits a paper without informing his/her co-authors. If a paper's author list in the submitted version does not match that in EDAS, the paper may not be reviewed.

  • The authors of accepted papers must guarantee that their paper will be presented at the conference. At least one author of each accepted paper must be registered in order for that paper to appear in the proceedings and to be scheduled for presentation.

  • The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.
