Manuscript is Prepared for Blind Submission
IEEE TechSym 2011 accepts only blind submissions. The author(s) should ensure that their names or associated identities do not appear anywhere through the contants manuscript. Author affiliations are to be replaced with the Paper ID generated during the submission to hide identity of the author(s) from the reviewers and ensure perfect double-blind unbiased review. View sample blind manuscript here. Noncompliance will lead to outright rejection without review according to Editorial Policies.

How to obtain Paper ID for Blind Submission?
The Paper ID must be included in the manuscript before uploading it on the portal. To acquire the Paper ID when creating a new submission, the authors should click the submit button on the same page where they will provide the title, abstract and subject areas. Note that authors do not need to upload the manuscript to acquire the ID. Authors will be re-directed to the author console, where they will find their Paper ID. This ID must be entered in the manuscript (in the space provided below the title), which can then be uploaded by editing the paper submission from the author console.

Manuscript limits
All Final Manuscript should have a page length up to 6 pages (letter size, single space, Times Roman of font size 10, two columns format), including figures, tables and references using the template for IEEE TechSym 2011.
