IEEE Publication Policies

IST 2018 Follows IEEE Publications Policies

Attendance Policy

At least one author from the submission must be registered at the conference and present at the conference.

Plagiarism and Dual Submissions

By submitting a manuscript to IST 2018, the authors guarantee that it has not been previously published (or accepted for publication) in substantially similar form. Furthermore, no paper which contains significant overlap with the contributions of the current paper is either under review at the moment of submission or will be submitted during the IST 2018 review period to any of the following: another conference, a workshop, or a journal.

Please note that IST 2018 will also process manuscripts through IEEE’s plagiarism check software to identify and eliminate plagiarism. This includes excessive self-duplication and dependence on earlier published works, as well as duplicated and unattributed content. IST 2018 asks that your paper’s content be original, previously unpublished, non-confidential and without commercial content.

Publication No Show Policy

Papers will be published in the conference proceedings only if at least one of the authors is officially registered and the paper presented. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

Authorization to publish

IEEE assumes that material presented at its conferences or submitted to its publications is properly available for general dissemination to the audiences these activities are organized to serve. It is the responsibility of the authors, not IEEE, to determine whether disclosure of their material requires the prior consent of other parties and, if so, to obtain it. In order to ensure that the authors are aware of their responsibilities, signed IEEE Copyright Forms must be collected for all papers accepted for publication.


IEEE reserves the right to withhold publishing of proceedings or papers that do not meet the IEEE quality standards.
