Author Guidelines

Full papers and technical contributions should be prepared using the IEEE conference template available at: IEEE Conference Templates (Letter template).

Full papers may present contributions on several manners:

  • Concluded scientific works presenting algorithms, concepts, new devices or techniques
  • On-going works presenting new ideas with preliminary results, addressing important problems, describing systems´ implementations, etc.
  • Surveys with a critical vision of a specific area, also including a complete revision of the state-of-the-art
  • Tutorials deeply covering a specific topic, from a theoretical or practical point of view

Technical communications are contributions typically shorter than full papers that may present: abstracts of concluded Master and PhD Thesis, results obtained from undergraduation final projects, independent works, reports about research projects (concluded or not), industry communications, books and conferences reviews, etc.

There is not a limitation on the number of pages for full papers. Technical communications should be restricted to the maximum of 5 pages.

It is the policy of the journal that papers extending previously published conference papers are acceptable, as long as the journal submission provides a significant contribution beyond the conference paper, and the overlap is described clearly at the beginning of the journal submission.
