Technical Paper Submission Information

The submission and review of technical papers for IEEE SoutheastCon 2013 will be handled by the conference's paper submission and review system, accessible from the IEEE SoutheastCon 2013 website. The submitted papers must contain original work and not have been previously published or presented elsewhere. All full-length reviewed papers accepted for IEEE SoutheastCon 2013 will be published in the IEEE SoutheastCon 2013 proceedings on CD and IEEE Xplore. Hardcopy conference proceedings can be ordered for additional fee. At least one author must pre-register for the conference, paying the full registration fee, in order to have their paper included on CD and IEEE Xplore. During the acceptance process, the corresponding author will identify the presenter of the paper. A total of 6 double-column printed pages are allowed for each full-length reviewed paper. A page charge of $100.00 will be applied for each extra page (up to 2 pages for full-length reviewed papers) exceeding the 6-page limit (8 pages maximum). An author can submit multiple papers. All submissions must comply with International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regulations, and IEEE policies.

Paper Format and Template

SoutheastCon 2013 adopts IEEE standard conference proceedings format. All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of eight (8) printed pages (10-point font) including figures. Papers exceed 8 pages will not be reviewed. Papers have to be submitted in PDF format. Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings for Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats are found at

Technical Presentation Format

Full-length papers may be presented in one of two technical presentation formats: an oral presentation format, or a poster-session format. Authors should indicate preference for either the oral presentation format or the poster- session format at the time of paper submission. Author preference for oral or poster presentation format will be honored when possible. However, conference organizers cannot guarantee any presentation format and reserve the right to set the presentations based on facilities and schedules constraints. Notification of final presentation formats will be through publication of the advance technical program schedule on February 22, 2013.

Copyright Information

Submission of a paper, an abstract or other material to IEEE SoutheastCon 2013 represents the author's agreement to allow IEEE to publish the paper, abstract, or other materials in any written or electronic format for distribution to all interested parties in perpetuity with or without compensation to IEEE and without compensation to the author. The parties understand that the author is granting a nonexclusive license and all copyrights remain the property of the author. A copyright form must be signed by the author for each accepted paper or abstract to be published in the conference proceedings.

Conference Registration

Advance conference registration for IEEE members will be $450 per person, which includes one paper registration; the registration fee for a non- IEEE member is $565. Any additional papers registered under the same author will be charged at $150 per paper. For each paper, at least one author must pay the full non- student registration rate. For example, an IEEE member author of 2 papers would pay an advance registration fee of $450+ $150 additional paper fee = $600. Co-authors are not required to pay additional paper fees; student co-authors may register at the student rate.

Plagiarism and Double Submission

Papers are reviewed on the assumption that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (multiple submissions). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.
