Final Paper Submission

Author Deadlines

Abstract Submission Deadline: January 22, 2018
Acceptance Notification: February 19, 2018
Final Paper Submission Deadline: May 21, 2018

Authors whose work has been accepted for the 2018 IFCS have been notified. Authors should now prepare final papers for incorporation into the 2018 IFCS Proceedings in accordance with the following:

Your full paper in PDF format must be submitted no later than 21 May 2018 23:59 (UTC-0700).

It is required that all PDF submissions be IEEE Xplore compliant. If your file does not meet Xplore compliance, it cannot be published and will not be included in the 2018 IFCS Proceedings and the IEEE Xplore system. To help you meet this requirement, you must FIRST check to ensure that your PDF file is compliant by using the IEEE PDF eXpress system BEFORE you submit your paper to the conference final submission web site.

NOTE: checking your PDF file for compliance and submitting your final paper for publication are two separate procedures.

The code for PDF eXpress is 40042X.
