Paper submission (Symposium)

Paper Submission Guidelines

Papers must be written in English. Research Papers, Practical Experience Reports, and Tool Papers should be no longer than 10 pages, following the IEEE two-column format for conference proceedings. All necessary details to substantiate the main claims of the paper should be included in a clearly marked appendix. Authors are requested to first register their submissions and then submit their manuscripts in PDF format at the Easychair page.

Camera Ready Submission / Author Kit

For the accepted papers to be included in the proceedings, the camera-ready version must be submitted by using the recommended format. The final PDF has to conform to the requirements for publishing on IEEE Xplore. In addition, the IEEE copyright form has to be submitted and at least one author of the paper must register to the conference at a full rate. The registration must cover any over-length page charge. All the steps listed above must be completed by 16 July 2017.

Please note that we will not be able to include your paper in the conference proceedings or in IEEE Xplore if you do not follow the instructions below. The conference organizer also reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if it is not presented at the conference.
