Instructions for Authors

Prospective authors are invited to electronically submit their papers in English, not exceeding six (6) pages using the IEEE format. All papers, including the ones for special sessions and workshops should adhere to the guidelines described here and will be included in IEEE Xplore.

Papers must describe original and unpublished work on the topics of the Conference. Submissions will be judged on suitability, originality, significance, correctness, validation, thoroughness, replicability, and clarity. Submitted papers will be peer-reviewed by at least 2 experts in the field. Final versions of accepted papers must take into account reviewers comments.

Papers may be presented orally or as posters, as determined by the Technical Program Chairs. Decisions on presentation format will be based on the nature rather than the quality of the work. There will be no distinction in the proceedings between full papers presented orally and as posters. Accepted papers will also be included in the Conference Proceedings and will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore.

All submissions must be in A4-sized PDF. All fonts and subsets must be embedded. Detailed examples about paper formatting are available in the LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates below. When using these files, please double-check the paper size in your page setup to make sure you are using the A4-size paper layout. The LaTeX environment files specify suitable margins, page layout, text, and a bibliography style.

Paper Submission

The paper submission of MMSP 2020 is handled by ConfTool conference management tool. In order to submit your contribution, you will need to create a user account in the ConfTool system. You can find ConfTool’s instructions for Submitting Authors here. If you already have a user account, you can log in with your username and password under “Registered Users”.

No show policy

Accepted papers MUST be presented at the conference by one of the authors, or, if none of the authors are able to attend, by a qualified proxy, approved at least two weeks in advance of the conference dates by the TPC co-chairs. In case a paper is not presented at the workshop, it shall be deemed a “no-show.” For the poster session, in case there is no speaker in front of a poster, this implies a “no-show” (one of the authors should be present at the beginning and for most of entire poster session, for the introduction of the paper and answering questions). No-show papers will not appear on IEEE Xplore following the IEEE No-Show Policy. Exceptions to this policy will be made by the MMSP 2020 Technical Program Chairs only if there is evidence that the no-show occurred because of unanticipated events beyond the control of the authors, and that every option available to the authors to present the paper was exhausted.
