The Academic Stream of the conference is for those who wish to publish peer-reviewed papers in the conference proceedings.
Presentation and paper submission types
- Oral presentation: These are traditional, stand-and-deliver presentations scheduled during the parallel sessions of the conference program, accompanied by either Full or Short papers that have undergone peer review, and if accepted and registered will be included in the conference proceedings.
- Full papers for oral presentation are 6 to 8 double-column pages in standard IEEE double-column format and are allocated a 20-minute time slot, with the presenter being allowed to speak for 14 minutes and the remaining 6 minutes reserved for audience questions and changeover.
- Short papers for oral presentation are 4 to 5 double-column pages in standard IEEE double-column format and are allocated a 15-minute time slot, with the presenter being allowed to speak for 10 minutes and the remaining 5 minutes reserved for audience questions and changeover.
- Poster: A poster is a printed, visual display of the presenter’s work that will be shown in the Posters & Exhibitions area of the conference venue. Presenters are expected to station themselves by their posters and engage in dialogue with conference delegates about their work during a designated poster session. Academic posters are accompanied by either Short or Work-in-progress papers that have undergone peer review, and if accepted and registered will be included in the conference proceedings.
- Short papers for poster presentation are 4 to 5 double-column pages in standard IEEE double-column format.
- Work-in-progress papers for poster presentation are 2 to 3 double-column pages in standard IEEE double-column format.
- Doctoral colloquium: Work-in-progress papers whose first or sole author is a doctoral student or candidate may also be submitted for the doctoral colloquium. This is a forum in which a group of doctoral students/candidates will each be given the opportunity to briefly speak about their research or proposed research before engaging in a moderated discussion with one another and with the audience.
- Work-in-progress papers for doctoral colloquium are 2 to 3 double-column pages in standard IEEE double-column format.
Paper review criteria
Paper template and guidelines
- Use of any other IEEE templates is not acceptable as there are subtle differences between those templates and the conference template that will affect the consistency in appearance of papers published in the proceedings.
- Do not change the paper size or margins in the template.
- The headers and footers must remain empty. (They should not contain page numbers or anything else!)
- Formatting of the paper must be done using the predefined MS-Word styles in the template, rather than manually. The paper must use all the predefined font styles, sizes, etc. as per the template.
- Basic examples of citations and references are included in the template. For more comprehensive information on citations and references, see the IEEE Reference Guide. Note that where there are conflicts between the template and the IEEE Reference Guide, the Reference Guide prevails.
- Page lengths must fall within the ranges listed below (inclusive of any tables, figures, references, and appendices):
- Full paper: 6 to 8 pages
- Short paper: 4 to 5 pages
- Work-in-progress paper: 2 pages
Papers should be saved in PDF format and submitted via the conference’s online submission system (link coming soon). Please note that submissions cannot be accepted via email.
