Submission Guidelines

Submitted manuscripts should be structured as technical papers and may not exceed ten (10) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5×11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including figures, tables, and references. See IEEE style templates at this page for details.


Electronic submissions must be in the form of a readable PDF file. Manuscripts must be received by the published paper submission deadline. All manuscripts will be reviewed by the Program Committee and evaluated on originality, the relevance of the problem to the conference theme, technical strength, rigor in analysis, quality of results, and organization and clarity of presentation of the paper.


Authors are highly encouraged to list the key contributions of their paper. This should be in a separate paragraph in the introduction to the paper. Please note that the review process is “single-blind” (i.e., authors can list their names on the paper). This year we are introducing a two-phase review process, by which the first round of reviews along with an initial decision will be made available to the authors by August 25th. As part of this initial decision, papers will be either accepted or rejected or recommended for a second round. Authors of papers recommended for a second round will be given a little over 3 weeks to revise and resubmit the paper, in order to address the comments and suggestions made by the program committee. The revisions will undergo a second round of review before the final notification on those papers by the end of September.


Submitted papers must represent original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines will be rejected without review and further action may be taken, including (but not limited to) notifications sent to the heads of the institutions of the authors and sponsors of the conference. Submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be considered.

  • Authors must register their paper and submit an abstract, typically a paragraph or two, by June 7, 2019 June 21, 2019.

  • Authors must then submit full versions of registered papers by June 14, 2019 June 28, 2019.

  • All deadlines are the end of day ANYWHERE ON EARTH.
