    We suggest that you use Firefox or Chrome instead of Internet Explorer, to prevent copyright upload issues to IEEE.
  • For the purpose of "review", all regular and invited papers are limited to eight (8) pages. PaperPlaza will not permit longer papers to be uploaded. The decision regarding the acceptance of each paper is at the discretion of the conference's Technical Program Committee.
  • For "publication" in the conference proceedings, all accepted and invited papers are limited to six (6) pages. Authors may upload longer manuscript up to a maximum of eight (8) pages total. However, each page in excess of six will incur an additional charge of 175 USD.
  • If the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors listed on the paper must attend the conference and present the paper according to the scheduling decided by the conference's Technical Program Committee.
  • In the event that the presenter is unable to attend the conference for any reason, it is his/her responsibility to insure that the paper is presented by a qualified colleague.
  • At least one of the authors listed on the paper must register for the CDC 2014 to upload the final manuscript.
  • Student registrants may upload one final paper.
  • Regular registrants may upload up to three final papers.
  • Additional papers can be uploaded for 200 USD each.
  • All submissions will be tested for similarity and overlap with prior published material using the iThenticate tool. Results of such overlap will be made available to the Program Committee for evaluation. In case of possible violations of the IEEE ethics rules in publishing, the case will be investigated by a committee that reports to the VP for Publications.
