Important Information

The Conference Proceedings will be included in the IEEE Interactive Electronic Library (IEL) as part of IEEE Xplore. All authors who have been accepted must register for the conference and attend the conference to present their paper. Authors who do not attend the conference to present their papers, or arrange for a co-author or knowledgeable colleague to present their paper in the absence of the primary author, will not have their paper published in the IEEE IEL and IEEE Xplore, per IEEE policy.

IEEE reserves the right to exclude a submission from distribution after the conference, including exclusion from IEEE Xplore, if the submission does not meet IEEE standards for scope and/or quality. Articles excluded from further distribution shall be archived by IEEE but shall not be indexed or appear on IEEE Xplore.

ACCEPTED PAPERS

1. Register Online

You MUST register before uploading your final paper. Papers will be included in the proceedings only if at least one author has registered and paid the registration fee by May 12, 2017. One full IEEE member or non-member registration (student registrations do not apply for this) covers only one (1) paper. To guarantee inclusion in the proceedings of more than one (1) paper, the author must pay a EUR €50 surcharge for each paper in excess. If an author has more than 3 accepted papers, an additional full registration will be required for the 4th paper (5th and 6th papers would then each incur the EUR €50 surcharge). You will be required to enter your registration code prior to uploading your paper. If you need to register by bank transfer, please contact Eric Benoit (civemsa2017@univ-smb.fr), CIVEMSA 2017 Registration Manager.

NO PAPER WILL BE PUBLISHED WITHOUT THE AUTHOR'S COMPLETED REGISTRATION AND PAYMENT.
