For Authors

IECON2012 is announced to be a big success and therefore become one of the world biggest Industrial Electronics events for the year 2012

We would like to inform all IECON 2012 authors that IECON2012 received more than 1360 papers submitted for publications in one of the announced 66 Special Sessions or in one of the 12 highly reputed Technical Tracks. Moreover, IECON2012 received 30 highly qualified proposals for tutorials from well-known world experts.

Big thanks to all who have submitted their papers; and to all who have submitted tutorial proposals to the conference. Congratulations for the high quality of your work. You have contributed to raise significantly the high quality of the conference content by submitting world class up to date materials.

IECON2012 is very happy to announce that 10 tutorials accepted for presentation will be offered free to all IECON 2012 attendees.

IECON2012 is also very happy to announce that a bit more than 1000 papers have been accepted for presentation at the conference.

Publication policy

Conference papers will be indexed for IEEE Xplore and EI Compendex only if all three of the following requirements are satisfied: submit all publication materials, pay at least one regular registration, and present the work at the conference. Authors who are unable to attend and present their work must pay attention to special instructions in either C2 or C3.

A. Submit publication materials

The author must submit their final manuscript, after cheking the format using PDF eXpress accessible here below, through the paper submission system using the available button accessible at the end of this page.

B. Pay full registration fee

An author must pay a full, regular registration fees before September 1st, 2012.

Reduced registration fees (i.e. retired registration, student registration, etc) are not considered regular, and will NOT be accepted for paper publication.

* Note: Please see registration tables for more details  

C. Present the work

Presentation is defined as one of the following:

  1. By author: Ideally, the primary author or one of the co-authors will attend the conference and present their contribution. This is the classical way of participating in conferences, and authors gain the greatest professional benefits.
  2. By colleague: If the primary author any of the co-authors cannot attend, then a qualified colleague may present the paper. A qualified colleague is one who is familiar with the technical field, and is capable of discussing the issues. The primary author or co-authors would miss the technical interaction, but fulfill professional obligations. NOTE: A full regular registration must be paid even if the qualified colleague is an author of another (different) paper in the conference.
  3. Absent authors: If the author or qualified colleague cannot attend the conference, then the author must notify the General Chairs and Local Committee before 5 September, 2012. The absent author must submit his/her work as a poster to the Local Committee by post or express mail service no later than 20 September, 2012. The conference program committee will review the presentation, and then the poster will be presented in one of the Interactive Dialogue Sessions. In case the presentation is considered non acceptable, then the paper will be considered NOT PRESENTED.

NOTE: A full regular registration fee must be paid, and absent authors may submit only one (1) paper per regular fee. Papers that do not meet all three requirements (A, B, and C) will be removed after the conference, and will not be indexed for either IEEEXplore or EI Compendex. No registration refund will be given in any case.

According to the above policy, the IECON 2012 will publish and distribute at the conference a Conference Proceedings with copyrighted content.

All final papers will be included in the IEEE content library, BUT no-show papers will NOT be accessible from IEEE Xplore.

No-show papers are copyrighted, however, cannot be re-published without permission from the IEEE.

Manuscript Submission

Technical papers accepted for the Conference may be published in the final technical program, and may be indexed in IEEE Xplore and EI Compendex, subject to final approval by the Conference Technical Committee. Authors wishing to publish a technical paper must agree to items (A-C) below:

A. Adhere to the Conference written paper format

English is the working language of the Conference. Papers are limited to six (A4) sized pages. Up to 2 additional pages can be accepted, but additional page fees must be paid at registration.

Templates for written papers are available in Word, PDF, and LaTeX formats. Due to unavoidable differences between computer programs, authors may detect very slight differences between these three templates. Papers following any of these three templates, and conforming to IEEE PDF requirements, will be acceptable.

Electronic File Requirements (is an obligation to all authors)

Complete works are to be submitted electronically, with file size limited to 2 MB. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings, and included in the IEEE Xplore® online digital library and EI Compendex database.

IEEE is very strict about the requirements for converting application files or PostScript files to full-text PDF for inclusion in IEEE Xplore®. Please follow the detailed instructions in "IEEE PDF File Preparation Guide for IEEE Xplore®", which describes the essential steps in distilling PDFs that meet IEEE requirements.

The most important issue is to make sure that all fonts used in the paper are embedded, especially for papers from Asia and Europe. The "IEEE PDF File Preparation Guide for IEEE Xplore®" details the process to ensure that all fonts used are embedded and subsetted. Failure to embed and subset fonts is the biggest obstacle to PDF compliance with IEEE Xplore®. Papers failing to meet IEEE Xplore® PDF requirements may be rejected.

B. Sign and submit copyright to IEEE

Signing and submission will be performed electronically through the online submission system, when final versions of papers are submitted.

C. Submit only original work

Prospective authors are expected to submit only their own original works. The Conference will be using the CrossCheck automated screening system to help verify originality of manuscripts. Submitted works may be compared to over 20 million articles in databases worldwide. Manuscripts that violate IEEE's publication principles may be summarily rejected. If the violation is deemed severe, then disciplinary actions may also be taken by IEEE.
