Types of Submissions

Authors are invited to submit high-quality technical papers reporting original work, neither previously published nor currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Authors can consider two types of submissions:

  • Regular Papers (limited to 8 double - column pages and preferably for oral presentation)
  • Work-in-Progress - WiP - (limited to 4 double- column pages, including oral or poster presentation)

Manuscripts must be submitted electronically in PDF format, according to the instructions published in the conference web site. Both kind of papers will follow a peer review process to decide acceptance. All the accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings and regular papers presented at the conference will be submitted to IEEE Digital Xplore for later reference.

The papers found any violation of the above conditions shall be withdrawn from IEEE Digital Xplore library at anytime.

Recommendation for authors to send technically extended version of conference papers to IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement (TIM)

It is possible to submit technically extended versions of in-situ presented IPIN2017 conference papers to TIM as a regular issue paper.

It is important to note that all submissions shall be within the SCOPE of TIM (please see http://ieee-ims.org/publications/scope-transactions). Submissions will follow a standard peer review process managed by TIM.

The manuscript must be submitted electronically using the web-based submission system (please, see there instruction for authors). The manuscript must be technically extended beyond the scope of the proceedings paper (in terms of the overall technical content and research results). At the time of submission, the authors must upload a separate file to explain how the paper is a technically extended version of the proceedings paper. The proceedings paper MUST be clearly referred to in the text and listed as one of the references. Finally, a PDF copy of the proceedings paper must be uploaded too.
