Submission Types

The SIES2018 conference is seeking three kinds of submissions:

·     Regular Papers
The SIES2018 conference is seeking submissions of 8 to 10 double-column pages reporting on novel and significant contributions to the field of industrial communication systems.

 Prospective authors are encouraged to submit a pdf version of their papers through the SIES2018 submission system. The submitted material (in English language) must be unpublished and not under review elsewhere. Submissions MUST include e-mail addresses and fax/phone numbers of the corresponding author.


·     Work-in-Progress (WIP) sessions
These sessions are intended for presentation of recent ideas and on-going works up to 4 double-column pages, describing research that has not yet produced the results required for a regular paper, but that due to its novelty and potential impact deserves to be shared with the community at an early stage. WIP submissions should be prepared according to the same guidelines as regular papers, and should be submitted through their own WIP electronic submission system. Accepted WIP papers will be published in the conference proceedings.
Authors of accepted WiP paper will give a 5 minute oral presentation at the WiP sessions, and will also present an A0 poster during the poster sessions.

·     Posters

Along with full research papers, SIES 2018 solicits submissions of poster abstracts whose contribution will be publicly presented during the conference. The poster session will provide a forum for researchers to present their work in progress and to receive feedback from experts attending the conference.

The areas of interest for poster abstracts are the same as for full research papers.
