  • IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if none of the authors attends the conference to present their paper.

Conflicts of interest

During submission of a research paper, the submission site will request information about conflicts of interest of the paper’s authors with program committee (PC) members. It is the full responsibility of all authors of a paper to identify all and only their potential conflict-of-interest PC members, according to the following definition:

A paper author has a conflict of interest with a PC member when and only when one or more of the following conditions holds:

  • The PC member is a co-author of the paper.
  • The PC member has been a co-worker in the same company or university within the past two years.
  • The PC member has been a collaborator within the past two years.
  • The PC member is or was the author’s primary thesis advisor, no matter how long ago.
  • The author is or was the PC member’s primary thesis advisor, no matter how long ago.
