ITI 2009 - Instructions for Authors

General Specifications

Keynote Papers /Contributed Papers /Student Papers /Poster Abstracts
(“contributions”) should be written in English.

Conference contributions will be reviewed by two independent referees.

At least one author of each accepted contribution is required to register and to present the contribution at the Conference.

Registration fee must be paid (by April 27, 2009) for each publication to be approved. The only exception is when a SOLE author has two acceptances; only one registration fee would be required.

Presenters who do not attend the Conference will not receive any Proceedings (not even a CD-ROM); unless cancelation/justification is received at least
21 days before the Conference starts. In the latter case the author will
receive a CD-ROM by mail.  

Upon submission of the paper, it is automatically understood that necessary approvals for the publication have been granted to the Conference Organizers. 


DO NOT use password protection in submitted contributions.

Make sure not to include headers and footers in your contribution. Especially, make sure it is not page numbered. Correct headers and footers will be inserted during the printing process.

DO NOT USE national characters or two-byte characters within the title, abstract, nor in the author information subtitles of your contribution (to facilitate indexing and searching using international character set).

The proceedings will be reviewed and printed in BLACK AND WHITE only. However, all participants will also receive a CD-ROM, so it is acceptable to use color in your contributions. Please note that it is your responsibility to ensure that your contribution is still readable in black and white, as the proceedings will form the primary record of the conference in libraries, etc.

Preparation of the Contributions

Keynote Paper may exceed six (6) printed (A4) pages, including Abstract, Keywords and References.

Instructions are derived from those provided by the IEEE Computer Society Press (with their permission). Files instruct.TEX, instruct.doc, instruct.pdf, and serve also as samples of the requested paper layout.

All accepted papers will be included in IEEE Xplore database, one of the most comprehensive interdisciplinary engineering databases in the world. Since the papers will be archived in the IEEE Xplore® System, your file should comply with the IEEE rules.

IEEE is very strict about the requirements for converting application files or PostScript files to full-text PDF. ALL ITI AUTHORS should follow the instructions in "IEEE PDF File Preparation Guide for IEEE Xplore" that describes the essential steps in distilling PDFs that meet the IEEE requirements.

IEEE PDF eXpress is a free, online service that allow conference authors to either convert their documents into compatible PDFs or to submit their own PDFs for compatibility testing. In order to prepare your PDF for ITI 2009 submission, follow the instructions for Using IEEE's PDF eXpress.
