Step-by-step instructions for authors:
(STEP 1) Prepare a 50-word abstract and a draft paper. Please use a short, succinct title and try to limit your title to one line of text. Do not add qualifying phrases that describe methods, tools, materials, applications, context, etc. These more properly belong in the abstract, not in the title itself. (STEP 2) Submit your 50-word Abstract and draft paper via the conference website form here, selecting the target session for your paper. Session names appear under “AES Focused Sessions” or “CAS Focused Sessions” in the CFP. (STEP 3) If your submission is accepted for presentation/paper publication, you will receive an “Acceptance Number” Refer to this number on ALL future correspondence to us. Consider this your paper number.
Register and present paper:
(STEP 4) Register your paper presenter for the conference (must be one of the co-authors). We must receive one full conference registration for each selected paper. (Authors with multiple accepted papers may register up to 2 additional co-authored papers that they are presenting at the additional paper fee). To be published in our proceedings and to be submitted to IEEE Xplore, a qualified presenter must appear in person and present the paper. “No-shows” will not be published.
