Author Notification/Copyright Agreement

Notifications are sent only to the presenting author.

A copyright agreement form must be completed if your paper is accepted.

Invited and Contributed Speakers who are submitting a paper for inclusion in IEEE Xplore will be provided with the IEEE Electronic Copyright Form (eCF) during the paper submission process. Invited Speakers who are submitting a virtual presentation only will be provided with the IEEE Consent and Release Form.

These forms allow IEEE the right to use, distribute, publish, exhibit, digitize, broadcast, reproduce, and archive, in any format or medium, whether now known or hereafter developed any materials, including written, audio and visual works. One of these forms is required by each speaker in order to present at the virtual conference.

Technical papers received outside the electronic submission site will not be accepted. Revisions will only be accepted up until the paper submission deadline.


Electronic Submission

Authors are asked to provide vital pieces of information, including, but not limited to the paper title, presentation type, and a 45-word abstract, as well as all authors’ contact information. This information must be completed in its entirety; failure to do so may inhibit your ability to successfully complete your submission.


Paper Rejections

Adherence to the instructions for preparation of the abstract and summary is imperative. Any of the following conditions may result in rejection of the paper:
1. Failure to submit the paper electronically by the submission deadline.
2. Failure to submit the 45-word abstract.
3. Failure to complete a copyright agreement.
4. Paper summary exceeds the two-page limit.
 
*The IEEE Xplore proceedings will contain only papers presented at the conference.
