Authors must submit their manuscript electronically by email to this address. Manuscripts should be within the fields of interest of the IEEE TECHNOLOGY AND ENGINEERING MANAGEMENT SOCIETY and should report on previously unpublished material. E-TEMS 2016 Call for Papers includes a detailed list of topics on which the conference program has been organized.
Authors should pay particular attention to documenting their work in relationship to the known literature.
All authors are advised to be familiar with IEEE guidelines before submitting their manuscript, including the IEEE Policy on Plagiarism and on Double Submission. The Technical Program Committee will verify the originality of submitted manuscripts by using CrossCheck, which is an antiplagiarism software, comparing submitted papers with previously published work worldwide. Manuscripts that violate IEEE’s publication principles will be immediately rejected. If the violation is deemed severe, then disciplinary actions may also be taken by IEEE.
The Scientific Committee invites high quality papers to be presented at this premier international event. Submissions should contribute to a substantial, original and previously unpublished research in the topics of the conference. This includes, but is not limited to:
Verification and validation papers that evaluate the application of solutions
Paper Format, Length, Template
Submitted manuscripts for IEEE E-TEMS2016 should be in Word Document, double column format with a maximum length of nine (9) pages including figures and references. Each accepted paper will require the payment of a regular (no student) registration fee and at least one author to be available to present the paper. Total file size for each submission cannot exceed 10 MB.
The review committee is available to provide feedback on abstracts and paper ideas. Papers will be selected in a double blind refereeing process based on the submitted full papers. Final papers should have no more than 7.000 words (all inclusive) and should be in the correct IEEE format. The paper should clearly describe its purpose and relevance, reference to existing theories and related works, research methods used and major results. Papers are expected to show the following structure: (i) Introduction, (ii) Relation to existing theories and work, (iii) Research approach, (iv) Findings, (v) Conclusion, and (vi) References.
Review criteria will be (a) whether and (b) how the paper extends the existing body of knowledge in engineering, technology and innovation as its contribution, and (c) therefore its relevance for the conference topics, (d) the scientific quality of the research approach and (e) the clarity of presentation. Papers will only be accepted for review on the condition that the material is original, that it has not been copyrighted, published, presented or is currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Based on the recommendations of the reviewers, the editorial committee will allocate submissions for oral presentation of papers and/or for poster presentations of notes. Speakers will be allocated 20 minutes for presentation and discussion of their paper. The official language of the conference is English.
The IEEE E-TEMS 2016 conference will publish one paper per presenting author only.
The formats and templates information is the standard conference template on the IEEE web at http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html (Microsoft Word, US Letter). Each author listed on page one of the manuscript is encouraged, also, to add a brief 100 word biography about themselves at the end of the manuscript, following the References section. Submissions must be in Microsoft Word. The open source editor LyX is suggested for best LaTeX quality with the minimum editing effort thanks to its very easy and effective visual interface. Stunning graphics can be obtained using Inkscape, an open source Scalable Vector Graphics software. You may use LyX, Inkscape, OpenOffice, Jabref (a useful tool for managing bibliographic material) and other Open Source software through a cloud server: RollApp. Templates prepared by IEEE, and some other useful information, can be found on the link above for the IEEE web. Authors must adhere to the IEEE Conference written paper format referenced above. They must submit a draft version of their paper for review before the due submission deadline (see "Important dates"). In order to avoid potential problems during last few days before a deadline, all Authors are strongly encouraged to submit their papers well in advance. All papers must be submitted to the email address given at the conference website.
IEEE is very strict about the requirements for PDF files for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, but formal control is needed only during final submission of accepted papers; therefore, IEEE PDF eXpress® service is not available for draft version of papers, but will be in place for use for the final submission of papers. Please use the template noted above to create your paper, without modifying style and/or format.
Accepted papers that are copyrighted to IEEE and presented at the conference by at least one of the authors will be eligible for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, once it meets the requirements of an IEEE quality review.
During paper submission, authors could be required to insert some personal information (CV or Bio, photo, expertise, etc.): this information will be used to improve the review process and later for registration purpose and for some other functions strictly related to conference management (CV or Bio will be used by Session Chair to introduce you before presentation, photo for preparing your badge and program etc.). All these data will be managed in term of laws.
