Authors' Deadlines:

  • 1 April 2017:         Submission of full drafts of proposed papers to the respective technical committee identified above.
  • 1 June 2017:         Notification of acceptance or rejection by the respective technical committees.
  • 1 July 2017:          Authors to receive instructions for submission of final conference manuscripts
  • 31 July 2017:      Deadline for submission of final conference manuscripts to ScholarOne Manuscripts

 

General Requirements:


Authors must submit a draft of the proposed paper for evaluation by the sponsoring Technical Committee. Abstracts or digests alone will not be considered. One author must be designated as the corresponding author, and an e-mail address must be provided for that person. All correspondence will be conducted via e-mail. Authors are responsible for assuring that e-mail sent to the corresponding author will NOT be blocked by a spam filter.
 

At least one author must register to attend the conference, and pay the full conference registration fee prior to submitting each final manuscript. IEEE student members, IEEE Life Members, and unemployed attendees must select a full conference registration to qualify to submit papers. Authors are limited to submitting no more than five (5) manuscripts against each full registration.  Papers in the main technical program will be archived in IEEE Xplore. Papers that are scheduled for presentation but not actually presented will not be archived in Xplore. All papers will be scanned for plagiarism in CrossCheck.

Final manuscripts for the Conference Record will be submitted electronically via the IAS ScholarOne Manuscripts site. The submitting author must execute an IEEE Copyright Transfer at the time of manuscript submission.

  • All papers sponsored for presentation by the Power System Engineering Power System Protection, Energy Systems, Codes and Standards, and Metals Industry and Mining Industry Committees will be reviewed for possible publication in IEEE Transactions on Industry Application or IEEE Industry Applications Magazine, and authors will receive feedback from this review following the 2017 IAS Annual Meeting.

  • Authors of papers sponsored for presentation by the Industrial Automation and Control, Electrostatic Processes, and Industrial Lighting and Display Committees may request that their paper(s) be reviewed for publication following presentation at the 2017 IAS Annual Meeting. 

Please note that not all IAS Technical Committees hold sessions at the IAS Annual Meeting every year. If a committee is not listed in this call for papers, you should contact the appropriate IAS Technical Committee or Department Chair for more information. The 2017 Energy Conversion Congress and Exposition will take place in Cincinnati at the same time as the IAS Annual Meeting, and there may be additional opportunities to present papers at ECCE.

Student Activities and Program:

Students are encouraged to participate in the Annual Meeting, and are welcome to submit papers for the Student Program being organized by the IAS Chapters and Membership Department. It is not necessary or expected that student presentations will be accompanied by formal manuscripts. Student papers are not included in the Annual Meeting Conference Record or archived in Xplore, and are not eligible for publication in IAS Transactions or IAS Magazine. 

Zucker Travel Grants are available to provide financial support for selected students attending the Annual Meeting; for further information, visit http://ias.ieee.org/chapters-membership/chapter-promotion-programs,-awards-and-contests.html.
