Instructions for Paper Submission 


Papers submitted to the 15th Intelligent Autonomous Systems conference must describe original research. Submitted papers will undergo a single-blind peer-review process; the IEEE anti-plagiarism policy will be applied in the review process. Regarding overlap with works previously published by the same authors, the IEEE policy will be applied: “For submissions that have overlaps with previously published papers by the same authors (or with papers simultaneously submitted elsewhere), the IEEE rules are that the submission should cite the prior work, and clearly state how the submitted work is different from the previous publication or simultaneous submission. We don’t have hard and fast rules for how much overlap with prior publications is too much. Somewhere in the neighborhood of 35% or more (of previously-published material) is a rough limit, although each submission has to be judged on its own merit. Note that overlaps with prior workshop papers (by the same authors) are usually not considered problematic, since IEEE supports the evolutionary publication paradigm of workshop papers being improved to conference papers, which are then improved to journal papers.”
