PAPER INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE AUTHORS
The Conference languages are Bulgarian and English. All papers published in the IEEE library are in English.
The authors must submit their four-page paper before the paper submission deadline. The papers must not exceed 4 pages, including all tables, figures and references (A4, double column, 10 pt).
Download the Paper template in DOC format.
After the review process is complete (carried out by two independent reviewers), the authors should send the final version of their accepted paper both as a PDF and a DOC file in a ZIP archive to the Conference email.
IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service delivered by IEEE for participating conferences, allowing their authors to convert DOC files to PDF. All authors are strongly encouraged to use it, in order to make their papers Xplore compliant.
First-time IEEE PDF eXpress users should do the following:
1. Go to the IEEE PDF eXpress site after 07.10.2019.
2. Click the "New Users - Click here" link.
3. Enter the following:
- Conference ID: 48729X
- Email Address: your email address
- Confirm Email Address: your email address
- Choose a password: your password
An Online confirmation will be displayed and an email confirmation will be sent verifying your account setup.
4. Continue to enter information as prompted.
5. Upload your DOC file to IEEE PDF eXpress and download the converted PDF version (in a couple of minutes).
6. The new PDF file should contain the phrase "Certified by IEEE PDF eXpress at [date_and_time_of_conversion]" in the Document properties Application field
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 send the files to the Conference email.
The papers that are not formatted according to the above templates and/or are not submitted by the deadline will not be included in the proceedings.
The available presentation poster area is in format A0 (840x1188).
The title of the paper, the authors, the main problems, scientific achievements and conclusions have to be explained in the poster using legible size text, equations, graphics and pictures.
Authors are encouraged to use the Poster template, available for download in either DOC or PDF format.
Each paper should be reported personally by one of the authors.
For the oral presentations it is suggested that presenters use MS PowerPoint. A multimedia projector is available.
During the poster sessions the authors have to present their work very shortly in front of the conference audience: 2-5 slides, within 1-2 minutes. The questions and discussions will be continued at the poster panels.
The accepted papers will be included in the program and abstracts booklet, and given to all conference participants. The presented papers will be written on compact dicks (CD) and sent to the authors after the conclusion of the conference.
All accepted and presented papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings and submitted to the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, Scopus and Web of Science databases.
