Submission Guidelines

Initial Submission (closed)

When you are ready with your paper, please submit your PDF-formatted paper through ICWT 2017 EasyChair paper submission.

Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers of 4 to 6 pages (including tables, figures and references) in the IEEE Conference template. All submissions should be written in English. Please prepare your A4 paper in accordance to IEEE guidelines at http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html

It is important to note that submitting a file to IEEE PDF eXpress is only for creation of a compliant PDF file, you MUST still submit your final paper through your EasyChair account.

You can download the form, fill and sign it, then scan the signed form into a PDF file, name the PDF file with the paper number (for example, yy-copyrightform.PDF, yy is the number of paper).
