Paper Submission Guides

All Submissions

For an accepted paper to be listed in the technical program, one of the authors of the paper must be registered by May 31, 2023. In the event that this is not possible due to funding or visa issues, another registered attendee must be identified to serve as presenter prior to May 31, 2023.

The language of the symposium is English. Each document that you submit (one-page abstract or two-page summary) should be formatted exactly as indicated in the corresponding template. (The templates are already written with the correct formatting, so replacing the text in the templates with your own text is an easy way to use the templates.) Please do not include page numbers on your submitted documents.

A signed (electronically) IEEE copyright form or URSI Publication Agreement must accompany all submissions. Papers submitted without copyright forms will be rejected. Instructions for electronically signing and submitting copyright forms can be found under "Steps for Submission" below.

Papers that are not presented at the conference (i.e. no-show papers) will be excluded from IEEE Xplore (they will be removed from the proceedings before the proceedings are submitted to IEEE Xplore).
