Manuscript Submission



Before you submit your paper, please ensure that:

1. The paper is written in accordance to the IEEE double-column format. Paper templates are available HERE.

2. The number of pages is TWO (up to FIVE). Overlength page charges will apply for paper length in excess of TWO pages during registration later.

3. The paper should include the abstract, introduction, results with the appropriate illustrations, conclusion, and references.


When you are ready to submit your paper, you may do so via EDAS:

1. Click the "Click here to submit your paper" tab at the top of this page.

2. You will be prompted to enter your email address/EDAS ID and password.

3. You should see three track options: Invited, Regular, and Special Session. Choose one track to submit your paper. Upon clicking, you should then see the web form for registering your paper submission. Fill in the form:

a. Enter title and abstract of the paper. Your paper title should NOT be in all upper or all lower-case.

b. Check the box "Add yourself as author" if you are indeed an author of the paper. You can add other authors later and you can change the order of authors.

c. Check the box "Participate in Student Paper Awards" if you intend to do so. Make sure that you fulfil the eligibility criteria.

d. Enter relevant keywords (up to 6) for your paper.

e. For regular and invited paper submissions, select the topic from the list of topics that best classify your paper. For special sessions, choose the topic for which you have prepared your paper.

f. Once you have all the information filled in, click on the "Submit" button at the bottom of the page. This will lead to a page that acknowledges your paper's registration and allows you to add authors. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to you.

4. After registering your paper submission, you must upload your actual paper in PDF. The PDF version of the paper to be uploaded into EDAS must be IEEE Xplore-compatible. You may use PDF eXpress to convert the files or to validate that the PDF file which you are uploading is Xplore-compatible.

5. Log-in to IEEE PDF eXpress site or by clicking on the icon below and enter the Conference ID: 43430X, your email address, and password. For new users, you may also create a new account by selecting "New Users - Click here" at the login page. For previous users of PDF eXpress, you may enter the same password that was used for previous conferences. Verify that your contact information is valid.

6. To upload your paper right after registering your submission, simply follow the EDAS instructions on the acknowledgement page. Alternatively, you can upload your paper later from your EDAS homepage. From there, you can upload your paper by clicking on the icon in the line that shows your paper's listing or via ftp, as per instructions on that page.

7. After you return to your EDAS homepage, you will see your uploaded paper. If you click on the paper number, you will see the paper details. If you click on the paper under "Manuscript", you will see the PDF version that you have uploaded.

8. From your EDAS homepage, you can see the status of your paper. Initially, when you are registered but yet to upload your paper, EDAS will highlight the paper with white color as pending, to show that no version of your paper PDF file has been uploaded yet. After your paper has been uploaded, the color indicating the status will change to yellow, and a confirmation e-mail will be sent to all authors.

9. You may still come back and edit your record / paper file another time before the submission deadline. To revise your submission, go to your EDAS homepage. Upload the new PDF version the same way which you have done for the previous version. Please do not register and submit a new version as if it were a separate new paper, since this will duplicate the paper registration records.
