Plagiarism

Papers will be reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.

Review process

ICUWB 2017 welcomes the submission of application papers with preference to the topics listed in the call for papers. All submitted papers will undergo a thorough review process; each paper will be refereed by at least three experts in the field based on relevance, originality, significance, quality and clarity.

ICUWB 2017 follows a single-blind review process. Authors are required to include their names and affiliations in their papers as illustrated in the sample templates. Your PDF file must not include paper id, page number & conference name.

Publication

Invited and submitted papers published on the ICUWB 2017 must meet established IEEE standards and requirements. These apply to post-conference distribution of the Conference proceedings as well, including submission to IEEE Xplore. Standards and requirements include, but are not limited to, the following:

Each student registration covers one (1) paper submission.
