  • Full Paper – present high-quality research contributions, including experiments, analysis, or system papers, as well as descriptions of application results. Each submission can have up to 8 pages incl. references.
  • Short Paper – present late-breaking results, work in progress, follow-up extensions, application case studies, or evaluations of existing methods. Each submission can have up to 4 pages incl. references.

All submissions must be original works that have not been published previously in any conference proceedings, magazine, journal, or edited book. The review process will be double blind, therefore we ask authors to take specific care to anonymize their submissions reasonably. Concurrent submissions are strictly forbidden. Submission of papers implies the intention to register and present the related content at the conference. The scientific international Program Committee will carefully review the submissions. Excellent content and presentation as demonstrated in the submission are mandatory for acceptance (acceptance rate 2022: 29%). Accepted submissions will be presented in English (as a talk or a poster) by the authors at the conference. As last year, proceedings of all papers presented at the conference will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements. All submissions must be formatted by following the IEEE 8.5” x 11” two-column format.

The use of artificial intelligence (AI)–generated text in an article shall be disclosed in the acknowledgements section of any paper submitted to an IEEE Conference or Periodical. The sections of the paper that use AI-generated text shall have a citation to the AI system used to generate the text.
