Submission Guidelines

Authors should only submit original work that has not been published before and is not under submission to any other venue. Submissions must not exceed 8 pages in IEEE 2-column style, including references. Use the standard IEEE Transactions templates for Latex or Microsoft Word formats found here. If the paper is typeset in LaTeX, please use an unmodified version of the LaTeX template IEEEtran.cls version 1.8b, and use the preamble:

\documentclass[10pt, conference, letterpaper]{IEEEtran}


Submissions that do not comply with these requirements will be rejected without review.

Do not use additional LaTeX commands or packages to override and change the default typesetting choices in the template, including line spacing, font sizes, margins, space between the columns, and font types. This implies that the manuscript must use 10 point Times font, two-column formatting, as well as all default margins and line spacing requirements as dictated by the original version of IEEEtran.cls version 1.8b.

If you are using Microsoft Word to format your paper, you should use an unmodified version of the Microsoft Word IEEE Transactions template (US letter size). Regardless of the source of your paper formatting, you must submit your paper in the Adobe PDF format.

The paper must print clearly and legibly, including all the figures, on standard black-and-white printers.
