Paper submission

The submission procedure

By the first deadline (December 5th, 2017) extended deadline (January 30th, 2018) the authors are invited to submit contributions in the form of either (including figures):

  • an abstract of 2 A4 pages, or
  • a full paper of 4-5 A4 pages.

In both cases the submitted manuscript needs to contain enough information for The Program Committee (TPC) and reviewers to judge on the originality and quality of the work.

The abstracts and full papers need to be uploaded via SMAGRIMET Conference Management System.

The manuscript (abstract) submission starts on October 4th, 2017. During the uploading process the authors will be asked to categorize their manuscripts in terms of the conference topics and application tracks. The authors may also indicate their preferences regarding the presentation format (oral or poster presentation) upon submission. The final decision about the presentation format is however done by TPC.

After abstract acceptance, authors will be asked to submit an updated, final version of their manuscript according to reviewers’ comments until March 5th, 2018. The authors that have submitted the abstract may choose between merely updating the abstract, or extending it to a full paper of 4-5 A4 pages if desired.  The final submissions are subject to brief review.

Note: Before final paper submission it is highly recommended, and mandatory if one chooses to publish his paper in IEEE Xplore, to check compliance of the manuscript files by using the PDF eXpress® tool, with the conference Id : 43875X.
Using PDFeXpress® pdf files can also be directly created. PDFeXpress for this conference is available after January 8th, 2018.
Abstracts are not to be checked with PDFeXpress, this procedure is only needed for final papers.

In all the cases, the paper templates provided below should be used.

Please also consider the following rules which apply for registration:

  • Each accepted paper needs to be linked to a registered person before the registration deadline
  • It is not allowed to link more than two papers to the same person

Note that to have the paper published in the conference proceedings the registration fee needs to be paid and the conference attended. If the paper is not presented at the conference it may be excluded by TPC from further distribution.



Note that these templates are basically standard 2-column A4 IEEE conference templates and they can also be found here.
