CDC 2013 Submission and Registration Policies
  • All papers submitted to the CDC 2013, whether for review or publication upon acceptance, must be written in English and formatted in the standard two-column format provided on PaperPlaza.
  • In their initial submission form, manuscripts may be up to eight (8) pages long. PaperPlaza will not permit longer papers to be uploaded. The decision regarding the acceptance of each paper is at the discretion of the conference's Technical Program Committee.
  • At final submission time for accepted papers, the regular length for manuscripts is limited to six (6) pages. At that time, papers up to eight (8) pages long may be submitted upon payment of over-length page charges of 175 EUR for each page in excess of six.
  • If a paper is accepted, at least one of the authors listed on the paper must attend the conference and present the paper according to the scheduling decided by the conference's Technical Program Committee.
  • In the event that the presenter is unable to attend the conference for any reason, it is his/her responsibility to ensure that the paper is presented by a qualified colleague.
  • At least one of the authors listed on the paper must register for the CDC 2013 to upload the final manuscript.
  • Student registrants may upload one final paper.
  • Regular registrants may upload up to three final papers.
  • Additional papers can be uploaded for 200 EUR each.
  • All submissions will be tested for similarity and overlap with prior published material using the iThenticate tool. Results of such overlap will be made available to the Program Committee for evaluation. In case of possible violations of the IEEE ethics rules in publishing, the case will be investigated by a committee that reports to the IEEE CSS VP for Publications.
