Paper Submission Guidelines
PAPERS PUBLISHING POLICY
- Papers of authors that are accepted and presented at the conference will be submitted to be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
IEEE POLICY ANNOUNCEMENT
- To be published in the IEEE ICSOS 2022 Conference Proceedings and the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, at least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference a full rate as ComSoc Member, IEEE/Sister Society Member or Non-Member and the paper must be presented at the conference. Nonrefundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to three (3) papers. Please, do not share your registration confirmation code with anyone else. Although the code enables submission of up to three papers, it can only be used once, by you, to create an author account. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE ICSOS 2022 Conference Proceedings and will be submitted for publication in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
- Student and Life Member registration is not valid as an author registration.
- Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously, and the IEEE Communications society will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.
PAPER SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
- Papers must be in English.
- The maximum paper length is ten pages (the minimum is three pages). All figures, tables, references, etc. are included in the page limit.
- Papers must be submitted in Portable Document Format (PDF) format.
- You may use the IEEE Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings. Templates for both Microsoft Word and LaTeX may found at http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html
- You are not required to use PDF eXpress to check your document.
- Authors will use the EDAS Paper Processing System to submit their papers.
- Only original papers that have not been published or submitted for publication elsewhere will be considered.
- The IEEE Copyright Form must be submitted with each paper to be published. This can be done through the EDAS system by clicking in the plus symbol next to the “Copyright form”, where the copyright form can be signed electronically, downloaded and submitted.
- During the initial paper submission process via EDAS, the authors are required to make sure the PDF file and EDAS registration page of a paper have the same title and authors. Be certain to include all authors in EDAS during the submission process. Once reviewed, the listing of authors connected to the paper cannot be changed in the final manuscript.
- Please, refer to these instructions for online presentations.
A computer, an LCD projector, a microphone and a laser pointer will be provided. There will be two ways of doing your presentation: with your own laptop connected to the LCD projector (we cannot guarantee the compatibility), or uploading your presentation to a server provided by ICSOS. The access method will be notified. To avoid any delay, we strongly recommend uploading the presentation to the ICSOS server, even if you plan to use your own computer. Presenters should arrive at their session at least 20 minutes earlier than the start time of the session, introduce themselves and hand in a brief biography to the session chair before the session starts. Presenters are requested to verify that the presentation displays correctly before the session. This will help ensure that your presentation will proceed smoothly. Please, be sure to be seated at the presenters’ seats located at the side of the stage 5 minutes prior to the start of the session. There is no rehearsal room reserved. Please, make sure in advance that your file works correctly in the oral presentation room. Each lecture presentation is allocated 15 minutes (20 minutes for invited speakers). You should spend no more than 12 minutes for presentation of the problem, the background, the innovative approach, the new results and the comparative evaluation. An additional 3 minutes should be available for discussion with the attendees. The session chairs have been instructed to terminate overrunning presentations in order to ensure that every presenter has the same amount of time. If you exceed your time, you risk missing the chance for questions or even completing your presentation. So, please practice the timing in advance! The presenter should prepare a reasonable number of slides so as not to exceed the 12-minute time. Typically, one slide is presented in one to two minutes. Additional slides could be prepared to support possible answers to attendees’ questions. Each slide should not be crowded by text and graphics. Too much text should be avoided. Graphics help in communications, are more understandable, and point out the basic ideas. Use large fonts so they can be read without a major effort; typically, 18-20-point fonts should be used. Presentation should be clearly structured. Begin with a title page. The index of the presentation should outline the presentation. The basic problem should be clearly stated, as well as the application area. Background and previous work should be summarized to provide a prospective for the results presented in the paper. The innovative approach should be clearly stated. The application of the approach to the application problem should be described, by pointing out the main features and characteristics, the problems and the solutions. The results should be clearly outlined and evaluated. Appropriate comparison with previous results should be presented. Conclusions should summarize the work performed and point out the main innovation and results. Future work and developments could also be sketched.
PAPER DEADLINE SUBMISSION
- Please, submit your final manuscript by 15 February, 2022 using the EDAS system.

The IEEE ICSOS 2022 will give 1 Best Paper Award and 4 Student Paper Awards to recognize outstanding contributions from the pool of accepted papers. A student paper is defined as a paper whose primary author was a student at the time of submission. To be eligible for the award selection process, accepted full papers must be submitted by the 10th of March 2022. It should be noted that late submitted papers and invited papers will not be considered for the awards.
The best papers will be selected based on the scores given by at least 3 reviewers from the TPC members. If there are several papers with the same score, the TPC chairs will further evaluate the papers’ potential impacts to the community, the applicability of technical solutions, and novelty of the obtained results to decide the award winners. The winner of the Best Paper Award will receive a certificate and a cash prize of $300. Each winner of the Student Paper Award will receive a certificate and a cash prize of $200.
