Preparation of Full Papers

Papers must be submitted electronically. Hard Deadline for Paper Submission is 15th Dec. 2017 (Deadline Over). Prior to preparing your paper for electronic submission, please read the paper preparation and submission guidelines below. A paper template and sample paper are available on the website at:

I. Papers Must Clearly State

  • The purpose of the work
  • The manner and degree to which it advances the art
  • Specific new results that have been obtained and their significance

The degree to which the paper deals with these issues will strongly affect whether the paper is accepted. The most common cause of rejection of submitted papers is a lack of specific results.  Only work  that  has  not  been  previously published at the time of the conference will be considered. Paper acceptance will be based solely on the information provided on the four page paper submitted. Promises of upcoming results will be ignored.

II. Electronic Submission

Only electronic submissions will be accepted. Do not email files or mail hard copies to the conference office. In order for your paper to receive a full review, the following information MUST be entered on the website along with your submission:

  • Title of paper
  • Name, complete mailing address and phone, and email of first author
  • Names, affiliations, city, state, country of additional authors
  • Person to whom correspondence should be sent, if other than the first author

  • Excessive photo reduction of figures and poor legibility will negatively impact acceptance
  • Please avoid the use of special international fonts

IV. 50 Word Web Page Abstract

This abstract is a brief synopsis (50 words) of your paper. Accepted 50-word abstracts will be used in preparing the CONECCT web pages. The abstract should be prepared and inserted into the appropriate text box marked Summary for the 50-word abstract on the submission website. DO NOT INCLUDE the 50-word abstract as a separate page with your submission.

Notification of Acceptance

Authors of accepted papers will be notified by 25th Jan. 2018. The accepted paper will be get peer reviewed inputs. It is mandatory for authors to extend their papers as per review / reviewer expectations and inputs received. Publication in the conference proceedings in no way precludes later publication of a fuller account of the work in another journal, but NO PUBLICATION is acceptable before the conference. The paper must be presented at the conference by one of the listed authors.

Student Presentation of Papers Encouraged

Papers presented by students and based on their own work will be considered for the Best Student Paper Award. The paper must be identified as a student paper at the time of submission. The award is based on both the paper and the presentation which must be given by the student. The award will be announced and presented at the closing ceremony of CONECCT 2018.

Manuscript Submission on EDAS

Dear Authors,

This is a gentle reminder that you need to upload a manuscript (up-to 6 pages) on the EDAS portal before the hard deadline (Dec. 15th 2017).

In case you have confusion due to term “Abstract Submission”, let me clarify that (if you follow the submission guidelines) what we call abstract here is a short paper for peer review process. This short paper may get extended by 20-30% at later stage, depending on reviewer’s inputs. This extended version in final form is called camera ready paper, which goes on IEEE Xplore.

At this stage you are expected to submit a short paper (up-to 6 pages) before submission deadline. Please upload your manuscripts well in time to avoid last minute hassles.

You may please ask us for assistance in case of any doubts regarding submissions.
