Paper Submission Guidelines

  • During BTAS 2018 review process, the paper should not be submitted to or be under review in other conferences, workshops, journals. Submitted papers may be checked with a plagiarism detection tool.
  • Simultaneous submission to arxiv is allowed.
  • Submissions may be up to eight pages in IEEE conference format, excluding references. There is no limit on bibliography pages. Note that papers longer than six pages in the published proceedings will incur a page charge, up to two extra pages (bibliography pages will not incur an extra charge).
  • Authors can submit one supplementary file. The size should not exceed 100 MB (maximum allowable by CMT) and can be in doc, pdf or zip format.
  • Papers accepted at the conference must be presented by one of the authors, and at least one of the authors must register before the paper registration deadline. Each author registration applies towards only one paper. If an accepted paper is not registered and/or not presented at the conference, it will be withdrawn from the proceedings and from IEEE Xplore. BTAS 2018 reserves the right to exclude a paper from publication if the paper is not presented (no-show) at the conference.
  • Authors may not delegate presentation of their paper to a non-author in attendance.
  • Authors are required by IEEE to transfer copyrights for any papers placed in Xplore. This is performed at the time final versions are submitted for production. If a paper is withdrawn from the proceedings, copyright will revert to the authors.
