Paper Submission Instructions (for final camera-ready version)
Steps for submission of final versions of accepted papers:
1. Revise your paper as appropriate based on the review comments.
2. Carefully proof-read your submission.
3. Latex and MS-Word templates are basically the same compared to initial submission. Templates can be accessed here ([Latex] [MS-Word]). The main difference in LaTeX with respect to initial submission is the incorporation of the instruction \icbfinalcopy
4. Check that your final pdf passes the PDF eXpress format check. The conference ID for PDF eXpress is icb2013x. If you are a new user to PDF eXpress, you will need to create an account.
5. Upload your final version, which has passed the PDF eXpress format check, at the ICB-2013 CMT site by March 29.
6. One or more of the authors of the paper must register for the conference and make plans to present the paper.More details can be found here
Paper Submission Instructions
1. In order to submit a manuscript for review, an account at the CMT site must be created for each author.
2. Prospective authors should submit full length papers (up to 8 pages, the 7th and 8th pages will incur a cost of 80€ per page in the final version) in IEEE format. Submitted papers should not have been published, accepted or under review elsewhere. All papers will be subjected to a double blind review process.
3. Submissions must be anonymous, i.e., the submitted paper must not divulge the identity of the authors (see below).
4. Authors are required by IEEE to transfer copyrights for any papers placed in Xplore. This is performed at the time final versions are submitted for production. If a paper is withdrawn from the proceedings, copyright will revert to the authors.
5. At the time of submission of the Final Manuscript at least one author for each accepted paper must register to the Conference at Standard Registration rate, otherwise the paper will not be included in the Conference Program.
6. ICB-2013 reserves the right to exclude a paper from publication (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented (no-show) at the Conference.
8. The paper submission website will be open in this link: ICB-2013 Paper Submission Site [Link].
