Paper Submission

Submission Guideliness:

The length of the paper is limited to a maximum of 6 pages (including references) in the prescribed two-column format. Papers that are over the page limit and are not according to the prescribed format will be automatically rejected without further review. Papers submitted at ICET 2014 must be original and not be published or under review at any other venue. The papers should not contain any plagiarized material. ICET 2014 will follow the IEEE policies for the plagiarism cases.

Papers should be submitted through the Easy Chair Conference System . Each paper must be in PDF format, written in English and conform to the IEEE format available at IEEE Format.

The proceedings of the conference will be available through IEEE Xplore .


Preparing the Camera Ready Version
All papers must follow the IEEE ICET 2014 Conference Paper format guidelines and authors are advised to use the IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings, available at IEEE Format.

Verifying the Paper:

IEEE ICET 2014 has registered to use IEEE PDF eXpress to generate and verify the format of all papers submitted. IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to IEEE Conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).

Steps for checking or converting PDFs using IEEE PDF Express:
  1. Create your manuscript(s).
  2. Proofread and check layout of manuscript (it is highly recommended that this be done BEFORE going to IEEE PDF eXpress).
  3. Create IEEE PDF eXpress account.
  4. Upload source file(s) for Conversion; and/or PDFs for Checking (conference ID is 34900XP ).
  5. Use IEEE PDF eXpress to attain IEEE Xplore compatible PDF(s). The site contains extensive instructions, resources, helpful hints and access to technical support.
  6. Submit final, IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF(s) per the instructions found below.
  7. Upload source file(s) for Conversion; and/or PDFs for Checking. Uploading a paper to IEEE PDF eXpress is not the same as submitting the paper to the conference for review. The checked PDF paper still needs to be submitted by the normal means.
