*The above are accepted papers and posters. We have sent mails to the accepted papers/posters and rejected papers. Hope you have received the mail, if not please check your spam/clutter folder.


Poster Size and Instruction:

One poster board will be allocated for each presentation. The maximum size for the posters is 33 inches (height) by 23 inches (width) [A1 sized paper approx.].

Each poster should be defended by at-least one of the authors in person during the respective poster session slot as given in the program schedule. The title of your poster should be written across the top of the poster, clearly visible from a distance of 5 feet. The remaining contents of the poster should be clearly visible from a distance of 2-3 feet. Below the tile, include the names of the authors and their affiliations. A brief introduction should appear at the upper left of the poster, below the title and authors’ details. The conclusions should appear at the lower right. Methods and results can fill the remaining space. It is a good idea to present the contents of the poster in a logical progression through your poster – this will help the viewers.

Presenters should refrain from using more than 1 font style.

Camera Ready Paper (accepted papers and posters) Submission Guidelines:

(Download as PDF)

Important Date: Authors should submit their camera-ready paper(s) after (i) modifications (if any suggestions from reviewers), (ii) PDF eXpress check for IEEE Xplore compatibility, (iii) duly filled Copyright form signed and scanned and (iv) Registration of at least one of the authors by November 21, 2016. Please see the instructions below.

  1. Copyright transfer agreements, one per paper, not per author, should be completed. Please download the copyright form from the link mentioned below, fill the form legibly, sign it and send a scanned version of this filled form to indicon16@gmail.com – this copyright form should be sent separately and DO NOT attach this with the camera-ready version of your manuscript. Please name the scanned copyright form with the manuscript number given by EasyChair (for example, if your manuscript number is 10, then please name the scanned file as 10-copyright.pdf) before emailing it to us.

IMPORTANT: The IEEE Copyright Form (downloadable from http://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/rights/copyrightmain.html OR from the Call for Papers page of INDICON 2016 website) must be completed.

  1. The authors should add the copyright notice to their papers (selected papers and posters) before creating camera-ready PDFs (see Section A “Before Creating a PDF” below).
  1. The authors should use the IEEE PDF eXpress site to validate their papers (see Section B “Using IEEE PDF eXpress” below).
  1. Provide IEEE Xplore®-compatible PDFs to INDICON 2016.

IMPORTANT: Any changes made to PDF after IEEE PDF eXpress Conversion or PDF Checking may invalidate Xplore compatibility. This includes headers, page numbers, copyright notice, watermarks, etc. If any of these elements are desired, they should be added to the document before a PDF is created.

Section A. Before Creating a PDF

Add the copyright notice to the bottom of the first page (in the center) of your source document:

  • For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright.
  • For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: 978-1-5090-3646-2/16/$31.00 ©2016 Crown.
  • For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 978-1-5090-3646-2/16/$31.00 ©2016 European Union.
  • For all other papers the copyright notice is: 978-1-5090-3646-2/16/$31.00 ©2016 IEEE.

Proof read your source document thoroughly to confirm that it will require no revision.

Section B. Using IEEE PDF eXpress

INDICON 2016 has been registered for use of IEEE PDF eXpress®. All INDICON conference articles submitted for inclusion in INDICON Proceedings and IEEE Xplore must adhere to the IEEE Xplore PDF specification for compatibility.

IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).

Steps for submission (please follow the steps in order):

  1. Create your manuscript(s) (revise if any comments from reviewers).
  2. Proof read and check the layout of the manuscript which is mentioned in the Call for Papers page of INDICON 2016 website (it is highly recommended that this is done BEFORE going to IEEE PDF eXpress).
  3. Create IEEE PDF eXpress account (see “Procedure” below).
  4. Upload source file(s) for Conversion; and/or PDF(s) for Checking.
  5. Use IEEE PDF eXpress to attain IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF(s). The site contains extensive instructions, resources, helpful hints, and access to technical support.
  6. Submit final, IEEE Xplore®-compatible PDF(s) to INDICON 2016 via EasyChair – please login to your EasyChair account and update your existing submission with this IEEE Xplore compatible PDF.
