ETHICAL STANDARDS AND PLAGIARISM

In accordance with academic and professional protocols and the IEEE requirements, SIBCON Conference can not accept a paper if it is not the author's original work, has been published before, or is currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. The article must not contain any libelous or unlawful statements or in any way infringe the rights of others. All authors must declare they have read and agreed to the content of the submitted paper.

IEEE defines plagiarism as the use of someone else's prior ideas, processes, results, or words without explicitly acknowledging the original author and source. Plagiarism in any form is unacceptable and is considered a serious breach of professional conduct, with potentially severe ethical and legal consequences.

If an author is found to have committed plagiarism sanctions may be applied by IEEE. Individuals whose names are placed on the IEEE Prohibited Author List will not be allowed to organize or lead any IEEE sponsored activities such as invited conference sessions, distinguished lectureship, editorship of IEEE publications, paper reviewer for IEEE etc.

Conference SIBCON uses the CrossCheck plagiarism screening service to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. CrossCheck site is a multipublisher initiative to screen published and submitted content for originality.

 

Guidelines for Oral Presentations

One author registration can cover up to two papers. One of the authors must give a presentation of the paper at the conference.

A paper not presented takes away a slot from another author and creates a hole in the session, which can inconvenience both the audience and organizers. Therefore, as prescribed by the IEEE regulations, no-show papers will not appear in the Conference Proceedings published at IEEE Xplore nor be considered for publication in the special issues after conference.

Please note that the overall time available for your presentation is limited to 15 minutes of which 10 minutes are allowed for the 
actual presentation and 5 minutes for discussion. You should plan your presentation carefully. You should select your vocabulary to 
address as wide an audience as possible and avoid unfamiliar abbreviations or expressions. Your oral presentation should be performed to answer the following questions:

Why was the project undertaken?
What was done?
What was learned?
What does it mean?

Remember, the three rules for an effective presentation are:

  • Tell them what you are going to say (spend a few moments introducing your topic and what you intend to speak about).
  • Tell them (deliver your talk, including the methods, results and conclusions)
  • Tell them what you said (summarize the most important points of your lecture).

Please remember that the responsibility of having your paper ready for Presentation at the scheduled time is primarily in your 
hands as the presenter. Check the readability, completeness and order of your slides before your presentation. Arrive well in advance of the session, and acquaint yourself with the operation of the podium and location of the equipment. Conference staff will be present to assist you. There are no scheduled breaks in the agenda so it is mandatory that the presentations be loaded before the beginning of each session.

Be careful to speak in accordance with the sequence of your slides. Avoid making major modifications to your transparencies during your presentation. Do not use more than 1 slide per minute. Please stay within the time limit allocated for your presentation.
