Author's Instructions

The submission and review of technical papers for 13th International Symposium HONET-ICT 2016 will be handled by the conference's paper submission and review system (EasyChairTM), accessible from the website. The submitted papers must contain original work and not have been previously published or presented elsewhere. All full-length reviewed papers accepted and presented at HONET-ICT 2016 will be published in the conference proceedings on CD and IEEE Xplore. Hardcopy conference proceedings will contain only program and abstracts and can be ordered for additional fee. At least one author must pre-register for the conference and present the paper, paying the full registration fee, in order to have their paper included on CD and IEEE Xplore. During the acceptance process, the corresponding author should identify the presenter of the paper. A total of 5 double-column printed pages are allowed for each full-length reviewed paper. A page charge of $100.00 will be applied for each extra page (up to 2 extra pages for full-length reviewed papers) exceeding the 5-page limit (7 pages maximum). Authors can submit multiple papers but one registration covers 2 papers. All submissions must comply with International Traffic in Arms Regulations (ITAR), U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) regulations, and IEEE Standards and Policies. Papers failing to comply with these policies will be dropped from the conference and publication.
