All papers must be submitted in the final format to be published in the conference proceedings and to be submitted for inclusion to IEEE Xplore. They must not exceed 4 pages (A4 size) with all illustrations and references included. The size of the PDF file submitted should not exceed 2MBytes.
Papers submitted for review must clearly state:
- The purpose of the work
- How and to what extent it advances the state-of-the-art
- Specific results and their impact
The degree to which the paper deals with the above issues is fundamental to a successful review and selection of the paper. The most frequent cause of rejections of submitted papers is a lack of new results. Duplicated submissions to concurrent conferences must be avoided.
Video Submission Instructions
In view of the COVID-19 pandemic, ICECS 2020 has been moved to a fully virtual conference. We have opted for a format where each contributed presentation will take the form of a pre-recorded video, available during the original dates of the conference and on-demand after the conference concludes.
We request you to prepare and upload a video of your presentation, comprised of a brief introduction with webcam, if desired, followed by voice over slides for your presentation. This will be posted on the ICECS 2020 on-demand virtual platform. Please note that the file must be a video file in MP4 format (more details below). Please do not try to upload PowerPoint or PDF files.
Our recommended approach to record a compatible video from content displayed on your computer screen and voice recorded via the computer microphone, is to record the presentation using Zoom, available to users on most platforms and in most countries:
Instructions for recording your presentation with Zoom:
For Authors located in China who are unable to access Zoom for free, use of the free software OBS, which allows also to capture simultaneously yourself while speaking and your slides: https://obsproject.com/
In order for videos to be verified by the technical program committee, there is considerable urgency in preparing and uploading your video. Accordingly, we ask you that you please finalize your video no later than October 17th. This is a HARD DEADLINE. Presentations will not be accepted after this date.
Guidelines for preparing your video:
- Poster Session: 5 minutes (You will also need to upload a PDF of your poster)
- Lecture Session: 12 Minutes
- Focused Session: 15 Minutes
File size: 250MB max
Video file format: mp4
Dimensions: Minimum height 720 pixels, aspect ratio: 16:9
Please note the final specifications will be checked at the time of submission and files not compliant may not be uploaded.
Please be sure the video includes the title of the paper, the authors, and a mention to ICECS 2020. We have included a slide template to be used for the first slide of your presentation.
Uploading your video (Deadline: October 17th)
Upload instructions and submission links will be shared shortly.
As a reminder, videos that are not received by the deadline will be considered no-shows in accordance with the non-presented paper policy.
We hope to make ICECS 2020 a success despite the difficult situation and this virtual conference format. We thank you for your cooperation in this endeavor.
