Author Instructions

Submission Preparation

The symposium caters to both practitioners and academics. For this purpose, the format of the submissions is divided into two categories, with different submission requirements. Tutorial, workshop and special session submissions adhere to the following directions as well. Please carefully read the Author Instructions listed here to ensure an accurate submission.

Practitioner Submissions

  • These are short papers presenting practical ideas, real cases, and practical achievements.
  • For this category, authors should submit an extended abstract of at least 200 words total.
  • The descriptive abstract should summarize the scope of the paper and the primary results and findings, emphasizing new advances, theories and/or applications so that the program committee will be able to understand the originality and the value of the work.
  • The abstract for practitioners must include a descriptive outline of the proposed paper.

Academic Submissions

  • These are long manuscripts addressing novel ideas, theoretical issues, technology, methodology, and applications.
  • For this category, authors should submit either the full manuscript (up to 8 pages in length), or, alternatively, an extended abstract of at least four (4) pages.
  • A clear statement of contribution is required.
  • The papers should also include an introduction, background, theory, a discussion of the validation and results, and a literature survey.

Submissions of both categories – Submit your work through EDAS

All papers and abstracts should be submitted electronically to the EDAS IEEE ISSE 2022 submission portal here. To simplify abstract slotting to Tracks, authors will be limited to selecting one Topic area only from the listing on the Call for Papers. If the abstract does not fit any of the topic areas listed, there will be an “other” option.

Submissions shorter than the minimum listed for their respective categories will be automatically rejected. The work should summarize the scope of the paper and explicitly include the primary results and findings, emphasizing new advances, theories and/or applications so that the program committee will be able to understand the originality and the value of the work. A submission implies willingness to register and present the work if the extended or descriptive abstract is accepted for presentation at the symposium.

Manuscripts will be reviewed by the Technical Program Committee. All authors of accepted extended abstracts must submit the full paper version by August 30, 2022, register for the symposium, and attend to present their papers. The maximum length for final papers is 8 pages without exceptions.

For your convenience, the Style Manual and Conference Paper Templates from IEEE in various formats are linked here. Please refer to both of these when preparing your manuscript.

*The maximum length for final papers is 8 pages without exceptions.

**Accepted Papers will be included in the IEEE Xplore digital library and indexed by EI/Compendex.
