Guidelines for submission:

  1. Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers by the deadline 19th June 2016 for publication in the IEEE CAST-2016 Conference Proceedings.
  2. It is required that the manuscript follows the standard IEEE camera-ready format (IEEE standard format, double column, 10-point font).   Submissions must include title, author and affiliation with email address, abstract and keywords. The IEEE templates in Microsoft Word and LaTeX format can be found at : Please ensure that your submissions can be displayed and printed without further processing using only standard tools and postscript printers. All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of Six (6) printed pages including figures. Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process.
  3. CAST-2016 will offer a variety of publication formats, including full papers, short papers and posters. All papers will be subjected to peer review by the Technical Program Committee. The Technical Program Committee reserves the right to determine whether a submitted paper is accepted for presentation as a long paper, short paper, or poster. All accepted papers and posters will be published in the proceedings. Full papers will be receiving longer presentation time during the conference as compared to the short papers. There will be a best paper award for each track, which is selected out of the presented full papers based on the evaluation by the Technical Program Committee. The winners will be declared during the conference.
  4. Paper submission SHOULD NOT be intended to get reviews from the Technical Committee for the sole purpose of improving on the quality of the paper.
  5. Authors should submit their papers online. CAST-2016 uses EasyChair for submission of papers and review process. Unregistered authors should first create an account on EasyChair to log in.
  6. All submitted papers will be subjected to a "Similarity (plagiarism) Test" by Turnitin plagiarism checker. Papers achieving a high similarity score will be examined and those that are deemed unacceptable will be rejected without a formal review.
  7. Paper clearing the similarity test will undergo a full paper review.
  8. Acceptance of papers will be communicated to authors via email.
  9. To ensure appropriate consideration of conflicts of interest during the review process, the CAST-2016 prohibits changes in the list of authors of a paper once a paper has been submitted for review, during the review process, or final publication (if accepted).
  10. Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore Digital Library, provided that: 
  • The final version of the accepted paper is prepared strictly as per IEEE format and has gone through PDF eXpress check;
  • IEEE Copyright form is signed;
  • At least one author of the accepted paper must register at the conference by paying the appropriate registration fees;
  • IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference, including IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, if the paper is not presented by the author at the conference
