Paper Submission

Paper Submission Process

To submit papers, visit https://edas.info/index.php and submit a paper for the conference labeled WTS 2015. (You will need to create a new account if you do not already have one). Submitted papers should not exceed 5000 words, including an abstract (less than 200 words). To facilitate the blind review process, authors' names and affiliation should not be listed in the papers submitted for initial review.

All manuscripts should follow IEEE Author Guidelines for 8.5" x 11" manuscripts as listed at: Sample Template

Poster papers should be submitted directly to Dr. Izabella Lokshina at Izabella.Lokshina@oneonta.com: The following information is necessary when submitting a poster paper: (1) the title of the paper, (2) the names and affiliations of the authors; and (3) an abstract. Only the abstract of an accepted poster paper will be published in the conference proceedings.

Review Process

All submissions will be refereed blindly. Criteria for paper evaluation include relevance for the conference, importance of the topic, soundness/quality of analysis and evidence, organization, contribution to theory and practice, overall quality of the paper.

WTS 2015 encourages early submissions (prior to the official cut-off submission date), especially relevant to authors who would need a visa invitation letter. Please notify the Program Chairs when you have submitted your paper that you would appreciate an early review and notification of acceptance.

Publication Process

At least one listed author on the final paper must register for and attend WTS 2015 to present the paper and have it published in the Conference Proceedings.

Authors of accepted papers will be asked to submit a final copy of the paper following the IEEE PDF Requirements for Creating PDF Document for IEEE Xplore®. Directions and templates are available at http://www.pdf-express.org/frhelpnologin.asp.

All accepted and published authors will also need to complete and submit an IEEE Copyright Form. The IEEE Copyright Form is available at http://www.ieee.org/web/publications/rights/copyrightmain.html.

Some selected high quality papers from WTS 2015 will be considered for publication in the International Journal of Interdisciplinary Telecommunications & Networking, IGI Global publisher, pending their successful extension and an expedited review process.
