Manuscript Submission – 4 page papers

Paper format

Papers are limited to 4 pages with an additional fee for up to four extra pages; however, the essential reviewed content must be limited to only four pages. The additional pages can only be used for supplementary figures (overflow figures are not allowed), pseudo code, screen shots, blue prints of instrumentation, and appendices. While reviewers will be asked to comment on the adequacy of the additional material, decisions to accept or reject papers will be based on the content of the main text. In short, authors are responsible to have a clear concise and self-contained manuscript within the allowed 4 pages for evaluation. Each paper should include an (i) abstract, (ii) introduction, (iii) a brief review of the previous research, (iv) approach, and (v) results and discussion. The abstract should have a clear concise summary of items (ii) and (v) for the demanding review process and general readers. The authors must clearly express specific biological or medical questions in their introduction and express their novel contributions either in section (ii) or (iii). Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
