Initial Full Paper Preparation

Please submit your paper through EDAS

Authors are invited to submit a full paper reporting original research of theoretical or applied nature using the online submission system. Shorter submissions may be automatically rejected. A submission implies the willingness to register and present the work if the paper is accepted for presentation at the symposium.

The maximum length of each paper is 8 pages without exceptions. However, all the paper material (including text, figures, tables, acknowledgment, etc.), except the bibliography/references, has to appear in the first 6 pages. Papers violating this condition will be rejected without review.

For your convenience, the Conference Paper templates in various formats are available through the following link:
