Instructions for Authors

PDF version of paper designators


Once the notification letters are sent to authors of accepted papers, Congress Publication Chairs will forward email addresses to the IEEE CPS staff editor who, in turn, will directly contact authors for instructions to upload camera-ready manuscripts. As in the past, there will be six volumes to be produced for 2020 IEEE World Congress on Services. Publication Chairs assigned to compile and produce each volume are:
Zhongjie Wang: IEEE CLOUD, IEEE ICWS, IEEE SCC volumes
Katsunori Oyama will supervise the proceedings compilation and production work as Senior Publication Chair in 2020.

Publication Chairs may contact you for questions and resolving issues like correct registration (see below for paper designators).

Authors and speakers please review the presentation policy page to make a corresponding plan. All authors/speakers will present their work remotely this year after the Congress Steering Committee made a final decision to convert the Congress into the digital-only format. Authors/speakers will be instructed to prepare prerecorded presentation material for uploading 2-3 weeks before the Congress date following the guidelines to be given by IEEE CPS staff at a later date.Please visit the registration page to properly register your technical contribution.

Authors/speakers wishing to remotely participate in the Congress must follow the presentation policy and the presentation format/material guidelines, to be posted at a later date.

Authors must strictly follow the naming convention (i.e. designators) to clearly label each paper as follows when submitting camera ready manuscripts to IEEE CPS. Full author instructions with the camera-ready submission link will be sent directly to authors by IEEE CPS. The August 3 registration deadline is firm. After August 3, unregistered papers will be removed from the final paper list and proceedings.

It is the Congress policy that authors are not allowed to modify the paper title, add/remove authors, or take other actions that may cause confusion and deviate from the original intent of the submission. Such changes must be submitted to the program chair(s) of the corresponding conference for written approval, with the assigned publication chair fully informed. Failing to do so will result in removal of the paper in question.
