IEEE Xplore option

Accepted papers presented at the conference can be published in the IEEE Xplore subject to compliance of the manuscript with the IEEE format and copyright requirements. If you want to exploit this opportunity, please, select the corresponding option during the online submission.



Papers should be up to 3-page long (including figures and references). Minimum 2 pages are required for publication in IEEE Xplore. Each paper should contain an abstract, a brief conclusion and a main body where the technical content and the novelty of the work are clearly presented. 
For invited speakers only, who are not interested in publishing their work on IEEE Xplore, a brief abstract is also acceptable.
Please note that the maximum allowed file size is 4 MB.

The use of the following templates is mandatory:

Paper prepared in any environment should be converted to a single PDF not exceeding 4MB and the use of IEEE PDF eXpress is strongly recommended (a link to this online conversion resource will be provided at the submission stage). Should you opt to use other PDF conversion tools, make sure that all the fonts are embedded in your PDF file. Authors are also encouraged to adhere to other IEEE PDF requirements, a summary of which can be found here, or use the IEEE PDF job options currently available for Acrobat versions 5 to 9.

Authors wishing to exploit the IEEE Xplore publication opportunity must prepare the PDF file using IEEE PDF eXpress (a link to this online resource will be provided at the submission stage). Failure to do so may result in your paper being withheld from publishing in IEEE Xplore Proceedings.

Short abstracts of accepted papers published in the web version of the program can contain links to any supporting materials, including pictures and video files. We encourage the participants to prepare short video previews of their presentation and make them available in advance.



When you are ready, login to the site, go to "Participant profile" and then to "Submission" and upload your paper.



A signed (electronically) copyright form must accompany all submissions. Papers submitted without copyright forms will be rejected.The following two options are possible:

1) In case you choose the IEEE Xplore option, you have to sign (electronically) the IEEE Copyright Form. After uploading your paper, the system will show a summary page, in which you can find the link to the IEEE Electronic Copyright system, which will walk you through electronically signing the appropriate IEEE copyright form.

2) In case you choose the METAMORPHOSE VI option, the corresponding copyright form will be automatically generated by the submission system. After uploading your paper, the system will show a summary page, in which you can download the submitted METAMORPHOSE VI copyright form. In this case, no further actions are needed by the author.

Please note that we reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from the proceedings submitted to IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.



All submitted papers will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. The reviewers and the TPC members are encouraged to give constructive comments and suggestions to the authors. After the TPC will make the decision, the authors will see the review comments and recommendations on their personal web pages (upon login). The authors of accepted papers will have a possibility to make updates of their papers based on the review comments and suggestions.
