PAPER SUBMISSION

Manuscript guidelines as well as instructions on how to submit electronically are available HERE.

Papers must not exceed four A4 pages with all illustrations and references included.
All submissions must be received by 10 April, 2017
. (NEW DEADLINE: 18 APRIL) 


Papers submitted for review must clearly state:

• The purpose of the work
• How and to what extent it advances the state-of-the-art
• Specific results and their impact


Only work that has not been previously published or submitted elsewhere will be considered.
Submission of a paper for review and subsequent acceptance is considered as a commitment that the work will not be publicly available prior to the conference.
After selection of papers, the authors will be informed about the decision of the Technical Program Committee by e-mail by June 2, 2017.
At the same time, the complete program will be published on this website.
An oral presentation will be given at the Conference for each accepted paper. No-shows will result in the exclusion of the papers from the Conference Proceedings and the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
For each paper independently, at least one co-author is required to register for the Conference (one registration-one paper policy).
Registration fees and deadlines will be soon available.
