• Each accepted paper must be presented by one of the authors, and at least one full registration per paper is required. Papers that are not presented will be withdrawn from the proceedings and from IEEE Xplore.
  • It is IEEE policy that WIFS accepts only original research papers, which are not already published or submitted elsewhere (including journals, conferences and workshops). Double submissions will be rejected immediately.
  • Authors are required by IEEE to transfer copyrights for any papers to be published in the conference proceedings. This is performed at the time when the camera ready version is submitted for production. If a paper is withdrawn from the proceedings, copyright is returned to the authors.
  • Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore subject to meeting IEEE Xplore‚Äôs scope and quality requirements.

Submission Instructions

  • Regular paper submissions can be up to 6 double-column pages including references.
  • Authors must submit their papers following the IEEE conference template, which is available here.
  • All papers must be submitted electronically in the PDF format.
  • Your paper may be accompanied by supplementary materials, but keep in mind that the reviewers are not required to take them into consideration. The main 6-page manuscript should describe and validate your contribution in a self-sufficient manner.
  • The methodology and the results presented in the paper must be reproducible by independent researchers from the community. Reviewers will be asked to assess reproducibility.
  • The author list at submission time is final and cannot be changed.
  • The review process is single-blind, i.e., the identity of the reviewers is not known to the authors, but manuscripts may contain author names, affiliations, and other identifying features (e.g., grant numbers, references to own prior work in first-person form).
