Instructions for authors
Papers will be reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are viewed very seriously and the IEEE will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice. IEEE Web Page on Plagiarism IEEE Web Page on Double Submission IMPORTANT NOTE: To be published in the IEEE WiSPNET 2016 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the FULL (IEEE member or non-member) author rate and must present the paper at the conference. Some papers might be presented as posters. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE-formatted publication-ready version of the paper along with any overlength charges for each camera-ready manuscript in excess of five (5) pages up to a maximum of seven (7). Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE WiSPNET 2016 Conference Proceedings and submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore®. SUBMISSION DETAILS: At the time of submission, the authors are required to make sure that the PDF file and the Easychair registration page of a paper have the same list of authors. That is, please enter all authors in Easychair during the submission process. Failure to comply with this rule may lead to the withdrawal of your paper from the review process. Also, the author list of an accepted paper CANNOT be changed in the final manuscript. Papers can be submitted with the aid of the link here. All submissions should be written in English with a minimum and maximum paper length of four (4) and seven (7) printed pages (10-point font), respectively, including figures. Camera-ready versions of accepted papers exceeding five (5) pages will be allowed pending payment of overlength charges. Standard IEEE conference templates for LaTeX formats are found here. You can also use the sample template for Microsoft Word: US letter Only PDF files will be accepted both for the review process and camera-ready submissions. Manuscripts should not contain page numbers, embedded links or notes, scanned images, headers, or footers.
