Tutorials

For TUTORIAL topics in the general technical area of industrial applications of electrical energy, please send outlines and presenter details to: Dr Joe Sottile by 1 May 2013, jsottile@ieee.org.

Authors' Deadlines

  • 1 March 2013: Submission of full drafts of proposed papers to the respective technical committee identified above.
  • 1 May 2013: Notification of acceptance or rejection by the respective technical committees.
  • 1 June 2013: Authors to receive instructions for submission of final conference manuscripts.
  • 1 July 2013: Deadline for submission of final conference manuscripts to ScholarOne Manuscripts.

General Abstract & Digest Requirements

All authors must submit a draft of the proposed paper for evaluation by the responsible Technical Committee. Abstracts or digests alone will not be considered. The draft should identify all authors of the proposed paper, and provide an e-mail address for the corresponding author. All correspondence will be conducted via e-mail. Authors are responsible for assuring that e-mail sent to the corresponding author will NOT be blocked by a spam filter.

Final submission of manuscripts will be done electronically via the IAS ScholarOne Manuscripts site. The submitting author must execute an IEEE Copyright Transfer at the time of manuscript submission. Papers may be screened for similarity to previously published material. Authors of papers sponsored for presentation by the Power System Engineering Power System Protection, Energy Systems, Codes and Standards, and Mining Industry Committees will be automatically be reviewed for possible publication in IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications or IEEE Industry Applications Magazine, and authors will receive feedback from this review following the 2013 IAS Annual Meeting. Authors of papers sponsored for presentation by the Industrial Automation and Control, Electrostatic Processes, Industrial Lighting and Displays, Appliance Industry, or Metals Industry Committee will have the option to submit revised manuscripts for review for publication following presentation at the 2013 IAS Annual Meeting.

At least one author must register to attend the conference, and pay the required conference registration fee, prior to submitting each final manuscript. Student registrants may not submit papers, but students may be listed as coauthors on papers submitted by other conference registrants. Papers that are not actually presented at the conference will not be eligible for publication by IAS.

Please note that not all IAS Technical Committees hold sessions at the IAS Annual Meeting. If a committee is not listed in this call for papers, you should contact the appropriate IAS Technical Committee or Department Chair for more information.
