Prospective authors are invited to submit novel, unpublished, and complete research contributions. Each submitted scientific paper should be a complete PDF manuscript, up to six (6) pages (inclusive of all figures, tables, and bibliography) in a standard IEEE format. The IEEE template can be found here. Papers not compliant with the IEEE template or exceeding the page limit will be returned without review.
A submitted scientific paper can be accepted for oral presentation or for poster presentation.
DDECS fully complies with the IEEE publication policies regarding double submissions, plagiarism, etc. Authors unfamiliar with the IEEE official rules regarding double submissions and IEEE ethics are advised to read the Publication Guidelines section of the IEEE PSPB Operations Manual that can be found here.
A submission of a scientific paper is considered a commitment that, upon acceptance, authors will submit their camera-ready version for inclusion in the formal Proceedings and will present the paper (or the poster) at the symposium. Each accepted contribution must have at least one full paid registration by the time the camera ready paper is submitted for inclusion in the proceedings. DDECS reserves the right to remove from IEEE Xplore papers and posters not presented at the symposium.
