Instructions for Authors of Accepted Papers

Publication Policy

Once the Conference has been held, papers will be sent to IEEE CPO, and based on their decision, could be indexed for IEEE Xplore® Digital Library and EI Compendex. In order to participate in the conference all of the three following requirements must be satisfied:

  • Submit all correct publication materials
  • Pay at least one regular registration
  • Present the work at the conference

Authors who are unable to attend and present their work must pay attention to special instructions in either 3.B or 3.C.

1. Submit correct publication materials

English is the working language of the Conference. Each full registration includes up to two papers. An additional 3rd paper can be handed in but further fees apply. In general, papers are limited to six (6) pages. Up to two (2) additional pages can be accepted, but additional page fees (3500 RUB per page) must be paid at registration. A paper uploaded file should not exceed the limit of 4 MB in PDF format.

Authors must adhere to the IEEE Conference written paper format. The author must submit the final version of manuscript and sign online the IEEE Copyright Form before the due submission deadline. These are submitted through the IES Submit system, which is entered from the conference website.

IEEE is very strict about the requirements for PDF files for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library. Later the IES PCT system will perform more checks on your final version, and authors of wrongly formatted papers will be contacted.

IEEE provides a set of templates in MS Word and LaTeX format. Please use them to create your paper, but don't modify the style nor the format under any circumstances:

Submit only original work, not previously published or copyrighted. Prospective authors are expected to submit only their own original works. The Conference will be using the CrossCheck automated screening system to help verify originality of papers. Submitted works may be compared to over 20 million articles in databases worldwide. Papers that violate IEEE's publication principles may be summarily rejected. If the violation is deemed severe, then disciplinary actions may also be taken by IEEE.

2. Pay full registration fee

According to the Conference Registration Policy, each accepted ICPS 2018 paper must have at least one registration in one of the following categories in order to be included in the conference proceedings: IES Member, IEEE Member or Full.

An author must pay a full, regular registration fee before 31 March, 2018.

Reduced registration fees (i.e. student registration, guest registration etc.) are not considered regular, and will NOT be accepted for publication. Each full, regular registration entitles an author to publish up two (2) papers. A third paper can be published with an extra paper charge of 26000 RUB. Papers are limited to six (6) pages. Up to two (2) additional pages can be accepted, but further fees (3500 RUB per page) must be paid.

3. Present the work

Presentation is defined as one of the following:

A. By author: Ideally, the primary author or one of the co-authors will attend the conference and present their contribution. This is the classical way of participating in conferences, and authors gain the greatest professional benefits.

B. By colleague: If the primary author any of the co-authors cannot attend, then a qualified colleague may present the paper. A qualified colleague is one who is familiar with the technical field, and is capable of discussing the issues. The primary author or co-authors would miss the technical interaction, but fulfill professional obligations. NOTE: A full regular registration must be paid even if the qualified colleague is an author of another (different) paper in the conference.

C. Absent authors: If the author or qualified colleague cannot attend the conference, then the author must notify the General Chairs and Local Committee before 31 March, 2018. The absent author must submit his/her work as a poster to the Local Committee by post or express mail service no later than 15 April, 2018. The conference program committee will review the presentation, and then the poster will be presented in one of the Poster or Interactive Dialog Sessions. In case the presentation is considered non acceptable, then the paper will be considered NOT PRESENTED. NOTE: A full regular registration fee must be paid, and absent authors may submit only two (2) papers per regular fee.

No-Show policy: The organizing committee reserves the right to exclude a paper from proceedings and from distribution at IEEE Xplore after the conference, if the paper is not presented at the conference. This means, papers that do not meet all three requirements (A, B or C) will be noted as No-show after the conference, and will not be indexed for either IEEE Xplore® Digital Library or EI Compendex. No registration refund will be given in any case.

According to the above policy, the IEEE 1st International Conference on Industrial Cyber-Physical Systems ICPS 2018 will publish and distribute, at the conference, the Conference Proceedings with copyrighted content. All final papers will be submitted to the IEEE content library for publication, BUT No-show papers will NOT be accessible from IEEE Xplore® Digital Library. No-show papers are copyrighted, and cannot be re-published without permission from the IEEE.
