Authors' Deadlines

  • 1 April 2016: Submission of full drafts of proposed papers to the respective technical committee identified above.
  • 1 June 2016: Notification of acceptance or rejection by the respective technical committees.
  • 1 July 2016: Authors to receive instructions for submission of final conference manuscripts.
  • 1 August 2016: Deadline for submission of final conference manuscripts to ScholarOne Manuscripts.

General Requirements:

All authors must submit a draft of the proposed paper for evaluation by the sponsoring Technical Committee. Abstracts or digests alone will not be considered. Drafts should identify all authors of the proposed paper, and provide an e-mail address for the corresponding author. All correspondence will be conducted via e-mail. Authors are responsible for assuring that e-mail sent to the corresponding author will NOT be blocked by a spam filter.

At least one author must register to attend the conference, and pay the full conference registration fee prior to submitting each final manuscript. IEEE student members, IEEE Life Members, and unemployed attendees must select a full conference registration to qualify to submit papers. Authors are limited to submitting no more than five (5) manuscripts against each full registration. All papers included in the Annual Meeting main technical program and actually presented as scheduled will be archived in IEEE Xplore, and will be eligible for review for publication in IAS Transactions or IAS Magazine in accordance with the traditions of the sponsoring technical committees.

Final manuscripts for the Conference Record will be submitted electronically via the IAS ScholarOne Manuscripts site. The submitting author must execute an IEEE Copyright Transfer at the time of manuscript submission. All submissions will be screened for similarity to previously published material. Authors of papers sponsored for presentation by the Power System Engineering Power System Protection, Energy Systems, Codes and Standards, and Metals Industry and Mining Industry Committees will be reviewed for possible publication in IEEE Transactions on Industry Application or IEEE Industry Applications Magazine, and authors will receive feedback from this review following the 2016 IAS Annual Meeting. Authors of papers sponsored for presentation by the Industrial Automation and Control, Electrostatic Processes, and Industrial Lighting and Display Committees may request review for publication following presentation at the 2016 IAS Annual Meeting.

Please note that not all IAS Technical Committees hold sessions at the IAS Annual Meeting every year. If a committee is not listed in this call for papers, you should contact the appropriate IAS Technical Committee or Department Chair for more information.

Student Activities and Program:

Students are encouraged to participate in the Annual Meeting, and are welcome to submit papers to the technical committees following the guidelines given above or for the Student Program being organized by the IAS Chapters and Membership Department (CMD). It is not necessary or expected that student presentations organized by CMD will be accompanied by formal manuscripts. Student papers presented at the CMD organized sessions are not archived in Xplore, and are not eligible for publication in IAS Transactions or IAS Magazine.

Zucker Travel Grants are available to provide financial support for selected students attending the Annual Meeting; for further information, visit http://ias.ieee.org/chapters-membership/chapter-promotion-programs,-awards-and-contests.html.
