Registration and Submission Procedure
Step 1: Choose Format of Presentation
We offer the following modes for your presentation:
1. oral presentation with slides (15 minutes talk plus 5 minutes discussion)
2. interactive presentation at a poster session
The review process for both modes of presentation is identical, and papers of both categories will be published on IEEExplore. You can specify your preference in the submission system.
As we are already assembling the program, please register your presentation preference as soon as possible. Please note that the Program Chairs may have to override your given presentation preference in order to optimize the program schedule, and you will be informed as soon as possible if this happens. You have to print and bring the posters for the poster sessions yourself. A0 posters fit both horizontally and vertically on the walls provided.
