Authors must adhere to the IEEE conference written paper format and they must submit the draft version of the paper for review before the due submission deadlines (see dates below). These are submitted through the PaperCept submission system (see link above). IEEE is very strict about the requirements for PDF files for inclusion in the
IEEE Xplore® Digital Library
. We strongly recommend using the set of templates in MS Word and LaTeX format provided by IEEE (see link above). Letter page size is preferred, and A4 can also be used. Please use them to create your paper, but don’t modify the style or the format under any circumstances.
Submit only original work, not previously published or copyrighted. Prospective authors are expected to submit only their original works. The conference will be using the CrossCheck automated screening system to help verify the originality of papers. Submitted works may be compared to over 20 million articles in databases worldwide. Papers that violate IEEE’s publication principles may be summarily rejected. If the violation is deemed severe, then disciplinary actions may also be taken by IEEE. For further details please have a look into the
Conference Authors @ IEEE Author Center
Accepted and presented papers will be copyrighted to IEEE and published in conference proceedings, which will be eligible for inclusion in the
IEEE Xplore® Digital Library
, once it meets the requirements of an IEEE quality review. It will then be customarily indexed by EI Compendex.
Prospective authors are invited to submit full-length papers electronically through the conference website. Papers (6 pages) should be concise but contain sufficient details and references to allow critical review. Papers will be reviewed by at least two referees for technical merit and content.
Special Sessions Papers
Special Sessions provide a focused discussion of new and innovative topics. Special Session proposers should download the special session proposal template and submit the completed proposal to the Special Sessions Chairs. Special Session organizers should collect at least six papers. All submitted papers undergo the same review process, and submission to proposed sessions is not a guarantee of acceptance.
These contributions are intended to promote contributions from industries on technology development, innovations, and implementations, which will facilitate collaboration between industrial and academic members of the SMC community. All submitted industrial papers undergo the same review process as regular papers via submission page.
Workshop and Tutorial Papers
These contributions are intended to promote contributions from applied research and applications, including work in progress, and facilitate increased collaboration between industrial and academic members of the SMC community.
BMI Workshop Papers
The IEEE SMC 12th Workshop on Brain-Machine Interface (BMI) Systems will be held
from October 9-12 as part of IEEE SMC 2022, the flagship annual conference of the IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society. The goal of the Workshop is to provide a forum for scientists to present research results, facilitate the interaction and intellectual exchange between researchers, developers and consumers of BMI technology. We invite contributions reporting the latest advances, innovations and applications in BMIs. The BMI Workshop is organized by the IEEE SMC Technical Committee on Brain-Machine Interface Systems. Participation is free to all registered SMC 2022 attendees.
