The technical program committee of the symposium will decide whether an extended abstract is selected for full paper (oral), or poster presentation. Both types of papers will be included in the CD-ROM Proceedings and in IEEE Xplore.
Preparation and Submission of Camera-Ready Papers (Oral Presentation)
Paper FormattingExamples: PDF Version | ps Version
The paper heading should include the paper title and author names set across the full page width. The complete affiliations of the authors (with email addresses) should be set as symbol-tagged footnotes in the first column of the paper (In MS-Word, please use Endnote instead of footnote). Please adhere strictly to the 2-column 10-point font format in the body of the paper. The full paper must not exceed eight letter-sized pages in length. Pages should be without page numbers.
With these margins, the column width is approximately 3.3inches (8.4cm).
LaTeX2e users are encouraged to use the style file sis_conf.sty.
