For Authors

Submission Requirements


English is the working language of ISIE 2010.


Final papers are to be submitted electronically, with file size limited to 2 MB.

The ISIE 2010 organizing committee will check if authors have complied with reviewers request, in case this is not true the paper will be rejected.

Please be aware that inclusion of your paper in the conference proceedings is only possible if the following 4 items are submitted before the 8 April 2010 deadline (Early Registration):

  1. final version the paper in IEEE Xplore-compliant format
  2. web-based IEEE Copyright form
  3. biography of the presenter (no more than 50 words)
  4. regular registration with payment

A Authors should pay one Regular Registration to submit up to 2 papers. An additional fee is required to submit a third paper. Authors submitting 4 papers need to pay two registration fees. Student Registration is only valid for Student Forum papers.

Papers that are not presented at the conference will not be included in the proceedings and in IEEE Explore and the registration will not be refunded.

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.

Please register at IEEE PDF eXpress™  and use as conference id ISIE2010x to check your pdf file or to convert it into an acceptable pdf file.
