SUBMISSIONS GUIDELINES

Warning on Plagiarism

Papers will be reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.

Notice on Required Registration Fees

To be published in the IEEE PIMRC 2017 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the FULL (member or non-member) rate and must present the paper at the conference. Some papers will be presented as posters. Nonrefundable registration fees, and over-length charges if applicable (cf. below), must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one FULL registration is valid for up to 3 papers ALL belonging to the Regular Tracks 1 to 4. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE PIMRC 2017 Conference Proceedings and submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore®.

Submission Format

Authors are required to make sure that the PDF file and the EDAS registration page of a submitted paper have the same list of authors, title, and abstract (minor wording differences in the abstract are ok). Failure to comply with this rule may lead to the withdrawal of your paper from the review process. Please note that the authors list of an accepted paper CANNOT be changed in the final manuscript.

All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of seven (7) printed double-column pages (10-point font) including figures. Authors of accepted papers with camera-ready versions exceeding 5 pages will be requested to pay mandatory over-length charges per extra page in excess of five (5) up to seven (7), for their papers to be published in the IEEE PIMRC 2017 Conference Proceedings and submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore®.

Standard IEEE conference templates for LaTeX formats are found here.

You can also use the sample template for Microsoft Word in US Letter format.

Only PDF files generated by Acrobat 5 or later versions will be accepted for both the review processing and final publication steps. Camera-ready versions  of accepted papers must be certified by PDFeXpress.

Both review versions of submitted papers and camera-ready versions of accepted papers should not embed bookmarks, form fields, or URL links, neither contain page numbers, headers, footers, or PDF annotations. Paper pages should be in US Letter format with left and right margins of at least 1 in, a top and bottom margins of at least 0.75 in and 1 in, respectively, and a gutter of 0.1 in between columns.
