Authors are invited to submit papers of original material that isn't currently under review in any other conference or journal.
Submission should be written in english with a maximum paper length of 10 printed pages, standard IEEE 2-columns format.

Standard IEEE Transactions templates for Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats can be found at: conferences_events/ conferences/publishing/templates.html.

The authors whose papers are accepted for a Poster session are invited to download the Poster Layout here.

Paper submission should be processed via EDAS platform, via the link:
All submitted papers will be reviewed by experts in the fields based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality and clarity.

Accepted and presented papers will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore. They will also be submitted to SCOPUS, ISI, DBLP and other leading indexing services.
Papers of a particular merit may be recommended for a special issue in an international journal. Best Papers awards and prizes will be given too.
