ITI 2010 - Instructions for Authors


General Specifications

ITI 2010 adopted a two-step submission process. The Initial Submission is for review purposes and stamped for confidentiality. The Final Submission will appear in the conference proceedings. If your paper is accepted, you will be required to upload your final paper by the Final Paper Submission Deadline.


Authors should only submit originally written, unpublished work to ITI 2010.

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.

Student authors may be eligible to take part in ITI Student Paper Competition.


Registration fee must be paid (by April 26, 2010) 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.


Before you begin the submission process be sure your paper is formatted according to the Conference Paper Requirements. We have arranged for a manuscript creation/test site, IEEE PDF eXpress. Your paper will be rejected if it is not compliant with the conference format style.
