Author registration

Authors will be asked to submit a final manuscript (maximum 5 pages) after their submitted abstract has been accepted by the reviewers. The conference proceedings will only contain papers that are presented in the conference. Therefore, at least one author must register for full rate until the extended deadline on July 22, 2013 (=camera ready submission deadline). Students, submitting papers, must also register for full rate.
One full registration can cover up to two papers. Failure to register before the deadline will result in withdrawal of the paper from the conference program and the proceedings. Any paper included in the conference program, but not being presented at the conference according to the published schedule will not appear in the official proceedings in IEEE Xplore.
