IEEE Policies

As ISPACS2018 is technically co-sponsor by IEEE, IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the symposium (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the symposium.

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 IEEE will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.

Student Travel Support Program

Students are encouraged to submit the papers to this conference. Students with valid student ID issued by own university or institute are eligible to apply this program.
We possibly provide travel support for selected applicants (based on the paper quality judge by reviewers).
