Preparing Draft of Manuscript
Use the manuscript template in .doc for your manuscript to prepare your draft for either an oral or poster presentation. The suggested length of a paper that accompanies a platform presentation is 6 pages, and there is a 10 page limit. The suggested length of a paper that accompanies a poster presentation is 4 pages, and there is a 6 page limit.

Be sure to read the instructions for creating your source file for submission to the IRPS Final Submission site. The IRPS submission site will convert your source file to an IEEE Xplore compliant file.

A mentor has been assigned to any accepted paper/poster in order to support authors in writing an excellent final manuscript. Mentor will send soon to authors of accepted papers/posters comments collected during the paper evaluation phase. Please submit a draft of your paper to your mentor by January 19, 2018. Mentor will provide you with his feedback in due time (see the 2018 Key Dates below).

Author Registration for Symposium – See Key Dates table below for registration deadline.
In order for a manuscript to be published in the symposium proceedings, it is required that the presenting author register for and attend the symposium to deliver the oral or poster presentation. It is strongly recommended that the paper’s first author be the presenter, although a co-author may serve in this role if the first author is unavailable. Once again, see the Key Dates table below for the registration deadline.
