Conference papers will be indexed for IEEE Xplore and EI Compendex only if all three of the following requirements are satisfied: submit all publication materials, pay full registration fee, and present the work at the conference. Authors who are unable to attend and present their work must pay attention to special instructions in either C2 or C3.
A. Submit publication materials
The author must submit the final version of manuscript and IEEE Copyright form before the 6 September deadline. These are submitted through the paper submission system, which is entered from the conference website.
B. Pay full registration fee
An author must pay a full, regular registration fee before 6 September. Reduced registration fees (i.e. retired registration, student registration, etc) are not considered regular, and will NOT be accepted for publication. NOTE: Each full, regular registration entitles an author to publish up to two (2) papers. Additional papers and overlength papers are subject to additional fees
C. Present the work
Presentation is defined as one of the following:
1) By author: Ideally, the primary author will attend the conference and present their contribution. This is the classical way of participating in conferences, and authors gain the greatest professional benefits.
2) By colleague: If the primary author cannot attend, then a qualified colleague may present the paper. A qualified colleague is one who is familiar with the technical field, and is capable of discussing the issues. The primary author misses the technical interaction, but fulfils professional obligations. NOTE: A full regular registration must be paid.
3) Absent authors: If the author or qualified colleague cannot attend the conference, then the author must notify the Technical Program Chairs before 6 September. The absent author must also email a PowerPoint presentation with audio clips, no later than 1 October, to the Technical Program Co-Chair, John Y. Hung, [j.y.hung at ieee.org].
The conference program committee will review the presentation for quality. Acceptable presentations will be included in the conference media. If the presentation is considered unacceptable, then the paper will be considered as NOT PRESENTED.
NOTE: A full regular registration fee must be paid, and absent authors may submit only one (1) paper per regular fee. Papers that do not meet all three requirements (A, B, and C) will be removed after the conference, and will not be indexed for either IEEE Xplore or EI Compendex. No registration refund will be given in any case
According to the above policy, IECON-2010 will publish and distribute at the conference a Conference Proceedings with copyrighted content. All final papers will be included in the IEEE content library, BUT "not presented'' papers will NOT be accessible from IEEE Xplore. "Not presented'' papers are copyrighted, however, and cannot be re-published without permission from IEEE.
