Instruction for Authors

 

The preliminary conference program is now available - PROGRAM

Please note:  QWED Workshop has been cancelled.

Dear Authors,

 

Your final paper must be uploaded to TPMS by 23:59:59 GMT on 4th April 2016.

Papers will not be accepted after this date! The final paper submission site will open not later than 15th March.

The use of the publication template is mandatory for acceptance of your publication into IEEE Xplore. Before submiitting the final paper, please make sure that:

  • you have chosen the correct files and settings for an A4 page size and conference paper.
  • the pdf file is IEEE Xplore-compatible and has been checked with IEEE PDF eXpress service.

                               

MIKON/IRS formatting requirements:

Please follow strictly the templates from http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html

Note that many review submissions had the title of the paper incorrectly formatted as "bold italic". The correct format is non-bold, non-italic and uses the "paper title" style in MS Word. Please ensure that the Paper Title has the correct format before you attempt to upload the paper.
