    Submissions Guidelines and PROCEEDINGS

    Manuscripts should be prepared in 10-point font using the IEEE 8.5" x 11" two-column format. All papers should be in PDF format, and submitted electronically at Paper Submission Link

    https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=23457 .

    A full paper must not exceed the stated length (including all figures, tables and references).

    Submitted papers must present original unpublished research that is not currently under review for any other conference or journal. Papers not following these guidelines may be rejected without review.

    Also submissions received after the due date, exceeding length limit, or not appropriately structured may also not be considered.

    Authors may contact the Program Chair for further information or clarification.
    All submissions are blind peer-reviewed by at least three reviewers.

    Accepted papers will appear in the Conference Proceedings, be submitted to IEEE Xplore for inclusion. Submitted papers must include original work, and must not be under consideration for another conference or journal.

    Submission of regular papers must not exceed 8 pages and must follow the IEEE paper format.

    Authors of accepted papers are expected to present their work at the conference.

    Double-Blind Peer Review Guidelines

    IINTEC 2017 uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity or affiliation.

    Information to help prepare the Blinded Manuscript:

    Besides the obvious need to remove names and affiliations under the title within the manuscript, there are other steps that need to be taken to ensure the manuscript is correctly prepared for double-blind peer review. To assist with this process the key items that need to be observed are as follows:

  • Use the third person to refer to work the Authors have previously undertaken, e.g. replace any phrases like “as we have shown before” with “… has been shown before [Anonymous, 2007]”.
  • Make sure figures do not contain any affiliation related identifier
  • Do not eliminate essential self-references or other references but limit self-references only to papers that are relevant for those reviewing the submitted paper.
  • Cite papers published by the Author in the text as follows: ‘[Anonymous, 2007]’.
  • For blinding in the reference list: ‘[Anonymous 2007] Details omitted for double-blind reviewing.’
  • Remove references to funding source
  • Do not include acknowledgments.
  • Remove any identifying information, including author names, from file names and ensure document properties are also anonymized.
