ICCE 2016 | Article instructions | Template


Remember there are two possible article lengths to contribute to ICCE, if you are unsure what to choose, please read this page beforehand.

Guidelines

(1) Prepare your article

You can write the article using the word template or the Latex template. Please read the template carefully before writing, especially if you are not used to contribute to ICCE.

(2) Format your paper

Remember papers will only be accepted in PDF format

(3) Prepare the abstract

Prepare a text-only abstract of approximately 35-50 words (no more than 300 characters). Paste this abstract into the appropriate box in the online submission form.

(4) Choose a submission topic

Select the conference topic group and primary topic that most closely matches the subject area of the paper. Optionally, select further topics. The primary topic selection will be used to match reviewers to your paper so it is important to make a careful selection.

(5) Submit the paper

The submission system is called EDAS. If you are unfamiliar with EDAS, please read this.
Use the online paper submission system to create an account and upload your paper. Be sure that you receive an email confirmation that your paper has been received. If not, log in to your paper submission account to verify both your email address and your papers. Be sure to use a reliable email account that you can access when the notifications are sent.

(6)Create the camera-ready paper

You will be notified by email if your paper is accepted. Upon acceptance, create a digest-ready paper and upload to the paper submission system, following the instructions in your acceptance email.

Additional Guidelines

Commercial references (such as Product Names, Brands, or Part Numbers) are not permitted in the body of the paper, summary, or abstract. Instead, use generic descriptions in the paper and place product names footnotes. Please see the abstract and footnote in the example paper for an illustration of this. Commercial presentation opportunities are available during sponsored events at the conference.

Authors submitting papers for oral presentation at ICCE should be able to communicate effectively in English. Individuals presenting papers at the conference should be able to effectively deliver the paper in English to an international audience - authors who are unable to do so themselves, should make an effort to find alternative speakers who can effectively present their paper.

Only those who personally write the paper are to be listed as authors. Submissions listing more than five authors will have the additional names deleted. The efforts of persons who contributed to the project described, or who otherwise helped the author(s) should be recognized in the place as explained in the template

Poster Guidelines

PRESENTING YOUR POSTER AT ICCE

Congratulations on having your paper accepted for presentation in the Poster Session category at the International Conference
on Consumer Electronics. Please read carefully the instructions for Poster Session authors outlined below. When making up
your poster, please remember that your message must be legible and clearly stated.

· The session chair will be there to show you to your poster board. Attach your material to the 4-foot high by 8-foot
wide (1.22m x 2.44m) poster board (landscape format). Pushpins will be available for this purpose.  At least one author must be
present the entire session to explain your work and answer questions. A major advantage of this type of presentation is
interchange between conference attendees and authors. Please remove your poster at the end of the session.
· Make sure that your texts can easily be read from a distance of about 2 meters or 7 feet.
· The heading should have letters at least 1 1/2 inches or 38 mm high (150 pt), giving the title of the paper, the
authors and their affiliations.
· Lettering for text and illustrations should be at least 3/8 inches or 10 mm high (40 pt), intermediate headings
should be somewhat larger (e.g., 70 pt).
· Subdivide your poster into logical sections (and sheets of paper) depending on the content, and map them to the poster
board. You might organize your poster into, e.g., 4 columns of a width corresponding to A2 in landscape format, with
sufficient space in between. Use whatever paper size you want within every column but no less than. The title
of the poster may best go across all columns, and use the whole width of the board.
·  Avoid putting too much material on the poster.
· Each of the sections (sheets of paper) should be numbered in sequence with 1- or 2-inch high numbers to guide the
reader through your poster presentation. 
· Make sure the poster sessions attendants understand the subject and get the message of your poster quickly and easily.
Therefore:
· Be clear: state the problems and the proposed solutions and results in a clear and concise way
· Be short: Use few words, prefer bulleted lists over paragraphs of text. Concentrate on what is essential. Details can be
mentioned orally.
· A picture is worth a thousand words: Use photographs, diagrams and other figures, and prefer diagrams over tiring
tables.
· The introduction/background should contain 3 to 5 brief sentences outlining information necessary to understand the
paper and why the work was done.
· The central topic of the presentation should be clearly stated in as few words as possible.
· Outline your work briefly. Provide details only for the highlights of your work.
· Results should be presented pictorially where possible (graphs, charts or schematics). You also may want to provide an
interpretation of the results below each panel.
· The conclusions should be stated briefly in large type. Many viewers read this first, hence it should be easy to
understand.
· A six-foot tabletop will be made available during your poster session. 
· The design of an effective poster is a rigorous test of your ability to communicate your work. A good poster requires
considerable effort and attention to detail.
