The papers are limited to six (6) pages, without incurring extra page charges. The paper may be extended to eight (8) pages. In such a case, extra page charges Rs. 500 per page will be applied. To enable blind review, the author list should be omitted from the main document. Previously published papers or papers currently under review for other conferences/journals should NOT be submitted and will not be considered. We will follow the plagiarism policy of IEEE. All submitted papers will be subjected to a "similarity test". Papers achieving a high similarity score will be examined and those that are deemed unacceptable will be rejected without a formal review.

Manuscript Template:

Authors are strongly encouraged to use the latest templates for typesetting as provided on the IEEE Website.

Paper Template
Paper Publication:

Every accepted paper MUST have at least one author registered to the conference by the time the camera-ready paper is submitted; and at least one of the authors is also expected to attend the conference and present the paper. Papers not presented at the conference will not be included in the final program or in the digital proceedings.

All registered and presented papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore

The manuscript as a single PDF is to be submitted online through Easychair.

Authors of the accepted papers will be informed by email.
