Authors should prepare an Abstract (1 - 2 pages) that clearly indicates the originality of the contribution and the relevance of the work. The Abstract should include the title of the paper, names and affiliations of the authors, an abstract, keywords, an introduction describing the nature of the problem, a description of the contribution, the results achieved and their applicability.

As an alternative to the traditional abstract, it is possible to submit a Graphical Abstract. Read the paragraph below for further information.

When the first review process has been completed, authors receive a notification of either acceptance or rejection of the submission. If the abstract has been accepted, the authors can prepare a full paper.
The format for the full paper is identical to the format for the abstract except for the number of pages: the full paper has a required minimum length of five (5) pages and a maximum of six (6) pages.
Full Papers will be reviewed by the Technical Program Committee. All contributions will be peer-reviewed and acceptance will be based on quality, originality and relevance. Authors of accepted full papers must submit the final paper version according to the deadline, register for the workshop, and attend to present their papers. The maximum length for final papers is 6 pages.

Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

  • Choose a visually appealing image that represents your research topic and use it as the central focus of your graphical abstract.
  • Use a pleasing colour scheme of up to 5 colours.
  • Use clear, concise language to describe your research question, methodology, and main findings in a way that is easy for non-experts to understand.
  • Make sure that the word count does not exceed 80 words.

  • Check for clarity by having colleagues or peers review your graphical abstract before submission.

Abstract / Full / Final Paper Templates

The purpose of a conference template is to provide a consistent format for papers appearing in the conference proceedings. IEEE strongly encourages use of the conference manuscript templates provided below.

IEEE conference templates contain guidance text for composing and formatting conference papers. Please ensure that all guidance text is removed from your conference paper prior to submission to the conference. Failure to remove template text from your paper may result in your paper not being published.
