Guidelines for Authors

Prospective authors are invited to submit novel, unpublished, and complete research contributions. Each submitted scientific paper should be a complete PDF manuscript, up to six (6) pages (inclusive of all figures, tables, and bibliography) in a standard IEEE format. The IEEE template can be found here. Papers not compliant with the IEEE template or exceeding the page limit will be returned without review.

A submitted scientific paper can be accepted for oral presentation or for poster presentation.

ETS fully complies with the IEEE publication policies regarding double submissions, plagiarism, etc. Authors unfamiliar with the IEEE official rules regarding double submissions and IEEE ethics are advised to read the Publication Guidelines section of the IEEE PSPB Operations Manual that can be found here.

A submission of a scientific paper is considered a commitment that, upon acceptance, authors will submit their camera-ready version for inclusion in the formal Proceedings and will present the paper (or the poster) at the symposium. Each accepted contribution must have at least one full paid registration by the time the camera ready paper is submitted for inclusion in the proceedings. ETS reserves the right to remove from IEEE Xplore papers and posters not presented at the symposium.

Camera-ready Submissions

Important information about the Camera-ready Submissions can be found here.

Key Dates

Paper Submission Deadline: December 4, 2017 December 12, 2017
Notification of acceptance: February 13, 2018
Camera-ready manuscript: March 18, 2018

Submission Website

Submissions should be made electronically as a single PDF file here.


ETS'18 will produce electronic formal Proceedings including all scientific papers, with ISBN number to be indexed in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library and other bibliographical search engines.

Scientific papers accepted for oral presentation require a final 6-page manuscript for inclusion in the formal Proceedings while scientific papers accepted for poster presentation require a final 2-page manuscript for inclusion in the formal Proceedings.

Best Paper Award

The Best Paper Award of ETS'18 will be presented at ETS'19.
