Full papers or abstracts must be submitted via email to submit@ieeespmb.org for review on or before stated conference deadline. Upon acceptance, authors must fill out and submit an IEEE copyright form. Accepted authors must attend the conference and present their work before it will be published in IEEE Xplore. At least one unique conference registration is required per accepted paper or poster.

Please note that you present only one paper or poster. If you are an author on multiple submissions, you must arrange to have these presented by a co-author.

Also, please note that since there is only one poster session, an author can present only one poster. If you have multiple poster submissions, you must have a co-author present the poster. Failure to attend the conference and present the paper or poster will result in removal from the conference record.

Requirements for a poster submission begin with the submission of an abstract that follows these formats:

  • Single column layout

The funding acknowledgement must be included as a footnote at the bottom of the first page.

Upon acceptance of an abstract, applicants must attach a one-page copy of their poster at the end of the approved abstract. This PDF file will need to be resubmitted prior to the conference (after notification of acceptance).
