SUBMISSION CATEGORIES for all tracks include full papers (up to 8 pages), short papers (up to 4 pages), and poster papers (up to 4 pages). The papers must be written in English, carefully proofread, and formatted to IEEE Manuscript Template. Full papers and short papers will be scheduled for oral presentation (25 min full papers, 15 min short papers). Posters/demos will have to be displayed by the authors during the poster session and will also require 1 min fast-forward slide presentation. All three categories of papers will participate in the competition for the Best Paper awards.

CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS with all accepted papers will be published by Conference Publishing Services as well as submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library, IEEE Computer Society Digital Library and reference databases of all major referencing indices including EI Compendex, Scopus, SCI, etc. (e.g., SCIScopus).

SPECIAL ISSUES of the following JOURNALS will consider for publications extended versions of all accepted FULL papers:

The extended journal papers, with at least 30% of new content and preferably different titles, will be required in October-November 2018.
