Paper Submission

All papers must be formatted according to the instructions below, for which you should use one of the provided paper templates. Papers are limited to four pages of technical content, with an optional fifth page that can only include references. Note that all accepted papers must be presented at the workshop by a registered author in order to be included in the published proceedings.

All contributions (regular papers and papers in special sessions) must be submitted using the EDAS online system by 26 January 2018 6 February 2018.

Paper submission is closed. Thank you for your submissions.

  • If you are submitting a paper to a special session, please select the name of the special session as the review topic on the EDAS submission page.
  • Papers whose first author is a student are eligible for a best student paper award. If you’d like to be considered for such an award, please indicate so on EDAS.

Formatting Guidelines

Please use one of these paper kits to format your paper:


  • Papers are limited to four pages of technical content, with an optional fifth page that can only include references.
  • The EDAS submission system only accepts PDF documents.
  • Please use the “US Letter” paper format (not A4). The text must be contained within the margins indicated in this document:
    Download the SSP18 margin format guidelines. The provided templates adhere to these margins.
  • Do not use a font size smaller than 9 points, including figure captions. For the main body of the document, 10 point font size is preferred.
  • Do not include any page numbers or headers and footers.
  • If you use MS Word, please use the most current version, which will help reduce Word-to-PDF conversion issues such as embedded fonts, bookmarks, etc.
  • All fonts must be embedded into the document. If you generate figures with MATLAB and export them using the “File/Export” menu, MATLAB will produce pdfs without embedded fonts. In order to include your fonts in the exported figures, use the following MATLAB command:

Presentation Guidelines

All papers (in special and regular sessions) are presented as posters. The size of each poster board is 140 cm (55 inches) tall and 100 cm (39 inches) wide. The recommended poster format is A0 in portrait orientation. Push tacks or velcro adhesive will be provided at the conference to mount your poster to the board.

All poster sessions are 1.5 hours long. Please check the technical program for the precise timing of your session. You should plan to be present in front of your poster during the entire session. It is important to remember that any paper which is not presented, in person, at the conference, will not be included in the official proceedings as archived on IEEE Xplore.
