Contributed full paper will be presented as an oral presentation or a poster presentation. The type of presentation will be determined by the Conference Editorial Board based on factors such as the reviewer’s suggestions and topic of the paper. Invited Session Papers will be presented in an oral session.
At least one author of the paper must be registered at the appropriate full conference rate (Member, Non-member, Student member, Student non-member) in order to upload the final paper. If complete payment of a registration fee is not received, authors will not be able to proceed with uploading their final manuscript. While any author of the paper may be registered, only the designated "corresponding author" may upload the final paper. Once a manuscript has been uploaded, the registration fees cannot be refunded. Please be sure that the attending author completes payment and uploads the final paper. This means that he/she must be the "corresponding author".
EMBS enforces a "no show" policy. Any accepted paper included in the final program is expected to have at least one author to attend and present the paper at the conference. Authors of the accepted papers included in the final program who do not attend the Conference will be subscribed to a "No Show List", compiled by the Society. The "no-show" papers will be removed from the Master DVD and noted as "Author unavailable for presentation" prior to submitting to IEEE for inclusion in Xplore. The "No Show List" will also be made available to all EMBS conference organizers, who can reject submissions from these authors in the following two years, based on their past negative impact on an EMBS conference.
The no show form must be completed and submitted by the corresponding author of any paper that has been included in the IECBES2018 program but the corresponding author or any co-authors are no longer able to attend and present the paper in the conference. If we do not receive the completed no show form, and you do not attend IECBES2018 and present your paper, you will be subscribed to the Society no show list.
To help you prepare your paper for submission, be sure your paper is formatted according to the Conference Paper Requirements (pay special attention to margins, 2-column format, do not put header/footer/page numbers). At the time of submission, the manuscript must be IEEE PDF compliant. It is best that you use the system's built in PDF conversion tool, please go to here for IEEE pdf compliant, conference code: 43004x. The non-IEEE pdf compliant papers will not be included in the submission for IEEE Xplore. If your manuscript is prepared in: MS-Word, then you can simply upload the doc/docx file, if you are on a slow connection, it may be better if you compress your file into a "zip" file before uploading it.
NOTE : ONLY ZIP COMPRESSION IS SUPPORTED, IF YOU UPLOAD THE FILE USING OTHER COMPRESSION TECHNIQUES SUCH AS GZ, TAR, RAR ETC., IT WILL NOT BE CONVERTED.
At the time of submission, after you have filled in all the required information about title, authors, abstract, etc., you will be asked to upload the manuscript. If you upload a MS-Word file, it will be converted to compliant PDF. If there are margin problems, then you will be asked to download and check the margin problem before you can submit the file. If there are no problems with your file, you can simply click on Submit button to complete the submission.
Each Corresponding Author (the author that submits the paper, will attend the conference to present the paper and is responsible for communicating with the Conference Organizers and the paper's co-authors) is limited to two (2) submissions for the conference. Final papers are limited to six (6) pages. This payment will be required after author notification of acceptance, at the time of final paper submission. Authors should only submit originally written, unpublished work to IECBES2018. All papers must be written in English.
IECBES2018 has a two-step submission process. The Initial Submission will first be checked for IEEE compliancy and will be for review purposes and stamped for confidentiality. If your paper is accepted, you will be required to complete a Final Submission which will appear in the conference proceedings. If your paper is accepted, you will be required to upload your final paper by the Final Paper Submission Deadline.
