Submission of camera-ready papers: July 10,2018


Please note that you have to create a new account for submission regardless of the past conferences.

*The deadlines of full papers and Ph. D. research proposals are extended.

For a camera-ready paper, you must submit the following files: the final manuscript, source file (including figures, tables, and etc.), and copyright. Please note that the manuscript and copyright form should be uploaded in PDF file while the source file can be uploaded in Microsoft Word or LaTeX. These files must be submitted by July 10, 2018. For the copyright form, please validate the information you provide in the form and ensure that none of the boxes at the end of the form is ticked erroneously.

The suggested page limit is 6 pages. The main reason to reduce the page limit to 6 page is that most authors want to submit their extended version to special issues or other journals after conference. However, we allow papers up to 8 pages. Please note the instructions for the special issues which strictly asks that “extended and improved versions of conference papers (at least 50% of new results should be presented, the text cannot be the same even for the first 50% with reused results,  the same requirements for figures, tables, etc no the same as in the proceedings)”
