Accepted full papers will be submitted to IEEEXplore (indexed in WoS and Scopus).

Abstract-only submissions are ideal for presenting preliminary results or sharing ideas. Please note, abstract-only submissions will only appear in the Conference Proceedings (including assigned ISBN), but will NOT be submitted to IEEEXplore.

Format of Full Paper

for both, the initial submission and for final full papers.

Authors are required to submit the full paper in the PDF format.
The PDF file must not contain page numbering or any headers and footers. The size of the pages must be set to “A4”.
The page limit for submissions in 8 pages for the initial submission and 6 pages for the final version. Please note, the submissions over 6 page limit (up to a maximum limit of 8 pages), lead to an additional charge of EUR 80 per page.

Authors have the option to select a preference for presentation format (lecture or poster presentation), although the organizers will make a final decision based on an effective overall programme design.

Peer-review will be based on abstract only.
