FULL-PAPER SUBMISSION

You can only upload your final manuscript using the Conference Paper Management System by following the instructions after you login into your personal account. The final submission should be with 4-6 pages. For papers with more than 6 pages, the author needs to pay USD 200 per page for the extra pages to be in the conference proceedings.

At least one author will register and attend the Conference to present the paper.

Full Paper Templates

The full paper should be a PDF file using A4 size papers. The templates and instructions for MS Word and LaTex can be found on the IEEE – Manuscript Template for Conference Proceedings page.

Authors must submit their final version of camera-ready papers electronically in PDF format through the Papercept system no later than 23:59:59 (Server time in PaperPlaza) on 20 Oct. 2017. Before submitting the final version, authors are expected to revise their paper taking into account the feedback from the reviewers. Only final submissions will be included in the conference proceedings and in IEEE Xplore. At least one of the authors listed on the paper contribution MUST BE registered for the conference when the final version is uploaded (Registration). A single regular conference registration can be used to upload two contributions. A single student conference registration can be used to upload one contribution.

Quick Summary for Final Paper Submission:

Please note that the corresponding author only can submit the final paper.

For the final paper submission, you are asked to upload the following files.

  1. A PDF file of your paper (max 2MB)
  2. A single PowerPoint slide for the ROBIO2017 Digest (ROBIO 2017 Digest Template)

Note that a unique key code issued after completing the registration is needed for uploading each contribution. Before uploading, please check your PDF file for IEEE Xplore compliance.
You are recommended to finish your uploads at least 3 hours before the deadline to avoid the traffic jam in network.


(Optional) Short Video

If your paper is accompanied by a short video (max. 10MB), please do not use special codecs (coders/decoders) in order to provide as much portability across platforms as possible. Using MPEG-1 or MPEG-4 video formats is strongly recommended. Accepted video contributions will be included in the conference proceedings and also in IEEE Xplore. There, the video will appear as an enhanced object next to the PDF of the summarizing text (a sort of short paper). If your paper features a video attachment, please prepare the following two plain text files:

(1) Summary.txt file (max 1 KB). Describe in five sentences or less the contents or value of the video. This file helps IEEE Xplore users to make downloading decisions.

(2) ReadMe.txt file (max 10 KB). This file must include the following three sections:

(a) Description: An overall description of the objects and what the audience can expect to gain by downloading them;

(b) Player Information: Provide the minimum version of the player software that is required to play the submitted files. Include the name of the software, the version number, and any special requirements for the player;

(c) Contact Information: The author should provide contact information in case users have questions regarding the extended material. IEEE will not provide any technical support.

Note that both of the above files should be in plain text format and have a .txt extension. They are needed by IEEE in order to include the video in IEEE Xplore.


iThenticate Similarity Index

As stated in the submission guidelines, contributed manuscripts will be checked for plagiarism and related violations. For this purpose the iThenticate tool provides the editorial board with a similarity report for each contribution. These reports are merely a tool to facilitate the search for sources containing similar text to other documents. The generated similarity index is calculated out of all scores against documents in the CrossCheck database. A high similarity index does not necessarily imply plagiarism. The decision whether or not a submission violates the rules for plagiarism is made after careful examination of both the submitted manuscript and other sources containing similar text passages.
