Full Paper Submission

Full paper describing work not previously published or presented must strictly conform to the IEEE conference format. Here you can download the IEEE template for the full papers in .doc format. Full paper length could not exceed four pages.

Also IEEE copyright form (one for each paper) must be filled and signed.
Here you can download the IEEE copyright form in .doc format.

Both full paper and copyright form must be converted in PDF file format. IEEE is very strict about the requirements for converting application files to full-text PDF for inclusion in IEEE Xplore®. Please follow the detailed instructions in "IEEE PDF File Preparation Guide for IEEE Xplore®", which describes the essential steps in distilling PDFs that meet IEEE requirements.

For PDF converting, we recommend doPDF free creator.

Please use the IEEE PDF eXpress site to validate your paper.

IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to check PDFs that have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility.

First-time IEEE PDF eXpress users should do the following:
1. Log in to the IEEE PDF eXpress site.
2. Select the "New Users - Click here" link.
3. Enter the following:
· 42750XP for the Conference ID
· your email address
· a password
4. Continue to enter information as prompted.
An Online confirmation will be displayed and an email confirmation will be sent verifying your account setup.
Previous users of PDF eXpress need to follow the above steps, but should enter the same password that was used for previous conferences. Verify that your contact information is valid.

IEEE PDF eXpress is not a manuscript-collection system and does not replace the conference's submission system. Once authors verify that they have IEEE Xplore-compatible versions of their manuscripts, they will still need to upload the files to the Conference Management System.

Full papers must be provided both in .doc and .pdf formats. A full paper proposal and signed copyright form have to be packed together in one ZIP file and electronically submitted through the SIELA 2018 Conference Management System no later than the deadline
(30 May 2018). Full papers must be submitted as a New Contribution in the SIELA 2018 Conference Management System. Papers witch are not submitted true the Conference Management System will not be further processed!

Full papers will be published in the symposium proceedings and submitted to the IEEE Xplore® system.
