After reading the IOS Press Instructions, please note these answers to the FAQ. 

1. (Important!) Your paper settings in MS Word must be for A4 paper, not US Letter Size. If you normally use Letter Size, please be sure your final documents are correct. Paper size affects pagination and, in many cases, compliance with the maximum page limit.

2. Use single-column format only. Justify left and right margins for a neat appearance. Carefully note the publisher’s required margins.

3. Papers should include a brief abstract and keywords. (This abstract is not the same 600-word “Abstract” submitted during the Call for Abstracts).

4. Use high-resolution versions of images, following the publisher’s instructions.

5. The Proceedings will be printed in black & white. Be sure to submit all images in black & white. In your descriptions, do not refer to colors in illustrations.

6. Do not paginate your paper or include any other header or footer info. We will assign this information.

7. If English is not your native language, please have your paper proofread by a native speaker, preferably one who is familiar with the described technology. All papers will be returned that are not in proper format or proper language.

When you are ready to submit your full paper, click HERE to update your abstract submission and upload the file with your full paper. 

We apologize in advance, but deadline for receipt of papers is not flexible. Time must be allowed for editing and production.
