Initial Full Paper Preparation

Please submit your paper through EDAS

Authors are invited to submit a full paper (4-6 pages) reporting original research of theoretical or applied nature using the online submission system. Shorter submissions may be automatically rejected. A submission implies a willingness to register and present the work if the paper is accepted for presentation at the symposium.

Manuscripts will be reviewed by the Technical Program Committee. Authors of accepted papers must submit the final paper version according to the deadline, register for the symposium, and attend to present their paper(s). The maximum length for final papers is 6 pages without exceptions.

For your convenience, the Conference Paper templates in various formats are available through the following link:

Register Online Here

Please read carefully the following information concerning the registration procedure that is presented in the Author Instructions, especially if you are the prospective presenter of an accepted paper or if you need to guarantee inclusion of your accepted paper in the proceedings. An accepted paper will be published in the proceedings only if the full-fee registration payment for one of the authors is received and correctly processed by 9 June 2019 - no exceptions. In addition, the author must attend the conference and present the paper. Papers that are not presented will not be published. No exceptions.

Only member or non-member fees are allowed to cover the publication of an accepted paper. To qualify for member rates, the membership number must be provided in the registration form. Student registration fees do NOT guarantee the publication of an accepted paper. If the author registering to cover the paper publication is a student, he/she has to pay the appropriate member or non-member fee. Members to whom the society bylaws grant special discounts (e.g., Students, Life members of the IEEE) cannot use the discounted rates to cover the publication of an accepted paper, they have to pay the member fee.

One author registration will cover the publication expenses of only ONE accepted paper. To the same registration could be associated only to ONE further paper by paying an additional fee of $50 USD. Further accepted papers for the same author will require the payment of additional registration. In the case no registration has been received and correctly processed to cover the paper publication, the conference organizers will contact the authors before the paper is removed from the proceedings.

You will be required to enter your registration code prior to uploading your paper. If you need to register by bank transfer, please contact Brianna Angelakis, M&N 2019 Conference Manager.
