It is IEEE Industrial Electronics Society (IES) policy to peer review full papers only. Each paper is normally reviewed by 3 reviewers but no decision is made unless the paper receives at least (minimum) 2 consistent reviews. The reviewers are providing scores to a range of parameters, grouped in two areas: one related to the readability of the paper (English, structure, figures, clarity, etc.) and the other set of parameters related to its technical content (contributions to knowledge, logical descriptions, applications, how convincing the results are, references, etc.). To read further about criteria for paper submission, please visit here.
You may submit as many papers as you wish, however, a maximum of two will be covered by one registration fee. For more than two papers, there will be additional fees (the exact amount has not been finalised yet). You may potentially be co-author of 10 papers, but if the principal organiser of each paper has registered them, you would not need to.
Student registrations alone are not sufficient to cover a paper entirely, a full registration is needed. Each full registration will cover maximum 2 papers. The only exception is for papers in the Student Forum, which can be covered by a significantly reduced student fee but only if all the authors of the paper are students.
In the first instance we would recommend making sure of the following:
The above recommendation is the most common problem. Without knowing what the exact problem is, we are unable to advise. Please contact your IT Services for further support if required.
If you would like to bring a guest with you to Edinburgh during the conference we will be able to add them to your visa letter which would state that they are welcome to join you for sightseeing tours (for example). However, we cannot provide them with their own visa letter if they are not attending the whole conference.
In the first instance please check your junk folder in your email - it may be stored there. If there is nothing, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll be able to check your paper status for you.
No, all registrations need to be done per person.
If you are unable to present your paper at the conference please make alternative plans for presenting your paper. This may involve asking your friend of colleague to present the paper on your behalf. The paper is included in the conference memory stick proceedings but we will have to follow the rules and send to IEEE Xplore only the papers which will be presented at the conference.
The submission system for submitting new papers for ISIE 2017 has now closed. Please visit our Final Submission Instructions page for information on submitting the final version of your accepted paper.
