Manuscript guidelines are available on the submission page. An accepted paper will be published in the proceedings only if the registration form and the full- fee payment for one of the authors is received and correctly processed by July 23, 2018.

Only member or non-member fees are allowed to cover the publication of an accepted paper. Student registration fees cannot be used to guarantee the publication of an accepted paper. If the author registering to cover the paper publication is a student, he or she has to pay the appropriate member or non-member fee. Members to whom the society bylaws grant special discounts (e.g., 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 (1) paper. For each additional accepted paper covered by the same registration, a $100 USD printing contribution will be charged per paper. 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.

Registration includes: 
Lunches, coffee breaks, conference dinner banquet, one (1) copy of the proceedings file, special and regular sessions AND/OR the Plugfest for those companies that have registered with the Plugfest committee (depending which registration you select).
