Paper Submission Site

Author Responsibilities


As creators of the work, authors have a number of responsibilities when submitting their paper or manuscript to ICITR. They must warrant:


That the papers they submit are their own original work

That no portion of their paper (including, but not limited to, graphics and figures) has been previously published unless written consent from the previous publisher have been obtained prior to submission

That the authors listed on the paper accurately reflect those persons who actually did the work and contributed to the paper in a meaningful way

That they have identified and acknowledged all sources used in the creation of their paper or manuscript, including any graphics, images, tables, and figures, and also including any persons who do not meet the criteria for authorship

Blind Review Instructions


Reviewing for the ICITR Conference is blind to the identities of the authors. The first page, on which the paper body begins, should include the title, abstract, content areas, and ID number (if available), but not names or affiliations of the authors. The references should include all published literature relevant to the paper. Acknowledgments of funding or assistance should also be omitted. Submissions should not contain pointers to supplemental material on the web.

When referring to one’s own work, use the third person, rather than the first person. For example, say “Previously, Newell (1996) showed that…,” rather than “In our previous work (Newell 1996) we showed that…” Try to avoid including any information that would identify the authors or their affiliations. Such information may be added to the final camera-ready version for publication.

Review Process


For papers that are accepted for review, Program Committee (PC) members will be matched to submissions based on research expertise and interest. Authors will have a limited opportunity to respond to initial reviews. This author feedback will then be taken into account in the final recommendations and reviews may be changed accordingly. Program chairs will make all final decisions during the process.

Publication


Accepted papers will be allocated six (6) pages in the conference proceedings; up to two (2) additional pages may be used at a cost to the authors of Rs. 5000/= per page. Final papers found to exceed page limits and or otherwise violating the instructions to authors will not be included in the proceedings. Authors will be required to transfer copyright of their paper to ICITR. Accepted papers will be available via the online schedule at the conference. The published archival versions of the papers will be made available in the ICITR Digital Library and in Google Scholar after the conference. IEEE Technical Sponsorship is pending for approval.

Preparing Camera Ready Paper




Please edit your manuscript by incorporating all reviewers' comments and use IEEE conference paper format.

Please note that organizers reserve the right to reject your paper if you don't modify your paper accordingly.

The final camera-ready paper submission must be limited to 6 pages.

It is strictly required to IEEE format and referencing style. The latest IEEE template could be found at: https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html

The papers which do not follow IEEE template will not be accepted by IEEE Xplore and cannot be published.

Please DO NOT include page numbers in the final manuscript submission.
