Papers must be written in accordance to the instructions at Transactions-template-and-instructions-on-how-to-create-your-article.doc or another format.

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers of their original research contributions describing new results, original ideas, and applications on relevant topics. The abstracts should be sent in English, via webform, in PDF file, length of 4–6 А4 (21х29.7 cm) pages (with margins at 2.5 cm, 10-point Times New Roman or similar fonts, and single spaced). The manuscripts should contain the following information: paper title, keywords, state-of-the-art in the field of interest, problem statement and objective, description of the contribution (novelty, research methodology), results achieved and their further development and applicability, references, author(s) data (name, title, affiliation, full mailing address, phone and fax numbers, e-mail address), and corresponding author name.

Paper will be accepted only by electronic submission. At least one of the authors of each accepted paper must register as a full participant of the conference and present paper personally to have the paper published in the proceedings and be scheduled for presentation.

Authors also should adhere strictly to the format instructions. The organizing committee reserves the right to reject accepted papers of the author(s) that do not fully comply IEEE Conference requirements:

  • author is not following ethical standards and plagiarism terms;
  • paper has not been presented;
  • registration fee has not been paid in time;
  • paper is not strictly following to formatting requirements.

Original papers not being submitted to journals or other conferences will be considered. All submitted papers will be evaluated according to its originality, significance, correctness, presentation and relevance. We encourage authors to present novel ideas, critique of existing work, and practical studies and experiments.

Electronic Copyright Form (eCF)

Each author whose paper has been accpeted for publication will recieve email from IEEE regarding eCF (from copyrights@ieee.org with subject "Copyright Pending Notice for Article: ...title of your paper..."). This email will provide the authors with a link to the online eCF wizard, as well as a unique login name and password to access their own copyright forms. When an author completes the online copyright transfer process and submits the form, he/she will receive an automated confirmation email letting him/her know that the transfer has been completed successfully.

Please use the link in the email invitation sent earlier in order to access your eCF, and complete the entire form. If you have any difficulty accessing the eCF site, please contact the IPR Office at copyrights@ieee.org

Blind Review Process

SIBCON will utilize a blind review process. Submitted papers (for both regular and special sessions) are subject to a blind reviewed process handled by an international technical program committee. It creates anonymity for both authors and reviewers. Reviewers will not be apprised of the authors' names or institutions in the submitted manuscript; such information will be deleted from manuscript before submission. The blind review process is adopted in majority IEEE conferences.

A blind review process greatly assists in the elimination of any perception of bias for or against an author or institution based on "name" recognition, country, gender, etc. This helps assure authors that:

  • submitted papers are judged equally;
  • submitted papers are judged and not the author(s) and/or their affiliation(s)

Paper presentation

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.

Publication

The International Program Committee will make the selection of papers. Papers will be reviewed for the technical merit and content. Only original, unpublished contributions will be considered.

An author of an accepted paper must be registered at full rate (member or non-member of the IEEE or REV) prior to uploading the camera-ready version.

The maximum length of the camera-ready version is 6 pages. Accepted and presented papers will be included in the IEEExplore Digital Library. The conference proceedings will be published in English, containing all conference manuscripts, and will be distributed among the conference participants, leading libraries, and international scientific centers. The Proceedings are indexed in IEEE Xplore.

IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference. Papers excluded from further distribution will be archived at IEEE but will not be indexed or appear in IEEE Xplore.

Notifications of paper acceptance and the preliminary program will be sent to the first author in January 2019.

Deadline for paper submission is December 4, 2018
