Submission Guidelines

Papers are 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). Serious action will be taken against any author who engages in either practice. Follow these links to learn more:

PLEASE NOTE: To be published in the UCET 2020 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions. To check the accepted paper compatibility with IEEE Xplore®, the authors must validate using PDF eXpress.

During the initial paper submission process via EDAS, it is the authors' responsibility to ensure that the author list and the paper title of the submitted pdf file is an exact match to the author list and paper title on the EDAS registration page.  In particular, the EDAS registration page must include all co-authors, not just the submitting author. Failure to comply with this rule might result in your paper being withdrawn from the review process. Please be aware that the author list of an accepted paper can NOT be changed in the final manuscript.

All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of four (4) printed pages (10-point font) including figures in the standard IEEE two-column conference format.


Important Information for Paper Validation

To check the paper compatibility with IEEE Xplore®, please use the IEEE PDF eXpress site.
First-time users should do the following:
1. Select the New Users
2. Enter the following:

your email address,
a password
Continue to enter information as prompted.
An Online confirmation will be displayed and an email confirmation will be sent verifying your account setup.
Submit your original files (Word/LaTeX) and an IEEE compatible PDF will be created for you. You can then use it on EDAS. 

Student Paper Competition

As part of the UCET 2020, we are also organizing the Best Student Paper Competition (SPC) with gift vouchers as awards. Upon acceptance of the papers that are written by the IEEE student members as first authors, an opportunity will be provided for the papers to be considered for the SPC.
