Submission of Papers

To present at EITT 2019, an active SICET membership is required. One of the benefits for an active SICET membership is to join AECT membership at a 50% rate. The cost for SICET/AECT dual membership is lower than the sole AECT regular membership.

A paper should be prepared according to the proceedings template, which can be obtained at IEEE Conferences Templates page.

It must be 4-6 pages in length, including an abstract, references, and tables/figures. Submissions should represent original and substantive research results. We will not accept any paper which, at the time of submission, is under review for or has already been published (or accepted for publication) in another conference or journal. Authors should submit their manuscripts in PDF format to EITT2019 via the EasyChair submission system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=eitt2019). Each paper submitted to EITT2019 will be carefully evaluated based on its originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression.

Publication Information

The proceedings of EITT2019 will collect selected papers through a standard peer-review process. The organizer of the conference will collaborate with Conference Publishing Services (CPS) to publish the EITT2019 proceedings. (CPS website: https://www.computer.org/web/cs-cps/)

  • CPS will provide full communication and assistance to authors and organizer throughout publication process;
  • All accepted papers (up to six pages in the Proceedings format) of the conference proceedings will be submitted to Xplore and, upon acceptance, submitted for indexing in EI (Compendex).
  • Only papers that are presented by an author at the conference will be submitted for inclusion in the above digital libraries.
  • Voiding Self-Plagiarism Suspicion. To encourage presentations and participation at AECT-SICET 2019 conference (Oct. 21-24) and EITT 2019 conference (Oct. 27-31), we have scheduled both conferences close to each other. Although you are allowed to present the same study at both conferences, we suggest that, when you do, you make an effort to write them in different angles. This will make it more interesting for your audience who may be at both of your presentations. More importantly, EITT proceedings will only accept papers less than 25% overlapping rate with the published journal articles, conference proceedings, and any other formats of publications.
