Submission Guidelines

CEWIT2017 is primarily interested in serving as a venue for the discussion of technical contributions highlighting end-to-end technical solutions, applications, and systems, even if available only in prototype form. Therefore, we strongly encourage authors to submit abstracts describing their contributions in an application-oriented context. 
Abstracts will be evaluated by conference program committee members and external reviewers. Submissions will be judged on validity, originality, technical strength, practical significance, quality of presentation, and relevance to the conference topics. We encourage submissions from a variety of fields where in-depth application-centric ideas addressing important challenges related to the conference theme are discussed. Authors of accepted oral presentations may submit a full paper to be included in the conference proceedings.
In addition to the oral presentations, we encourage participation in the poster session to present on-going research and innovative application projects. A judging panel of industry and academic experts will evaluate the posters and determine the winners of Best Poster and Best Student Poster Awards.  
Submissions will be accepted electronically in Spring 2017. Submission guidelines and other information will also be provided on the conference website at this time. 

Important Dates

August 1, 2017: Abstract submission deadline
