Submit the final camera-ready version of your accepted papers via online no later than Mar. 31, 2020. All papers should be re-submitted after completing the PDF check and copyright transfer even if you have no further revision from the original version.

Registration

Before the final paper submission, you have to finish a full, non-student registration by at least one of the authors in order to have your paper be included in the symposium sessions and symposium proceedings. The full registration fee covers up to two papers. Please make sure to check the registration ID (5-digit number) issued in the full registration as "Order ID", which is needed for the final paper submission. The registration page will be open on March 2nd, 2020.

Final paper submission

You must submit the final camera-ready version of your accepted papers (it must be IEEE Xplore compliant) to EDAS no later than Mar. 31, 2020. All papers should be re-submitted after completing the PDF check and copyright transfer even if you have no further revision from the original version.

Paper information update

Please update the paper information (the items: "Student", "IEEE Xplore", "Registration code") on EDAS. For the confirmation of the full registration by the authors, please make sure to input the order ID (5-digit number) issued in the full registration to "Registration code" in the paper information page on EDAS. The order ID (registration ID) for student registration is not acceptable. If the organization committee does not confirm the full registration by at least one of the authors, your paper will be excluded in the proceedings and IEEE Xplore.
