Policy for paper submission and presentation of accepted papers:

  • During ICB-2018 review process, the paper should not be submitted to or be under review in other conferences, workshops, journals, or any other open access archiving servers. Submitted papers may be checked with a plagiarism detection tool.
  • Papers accepted at the conference must be presented by one of the authors, and at least one of the authors must register at the standard registration rate before the paper registration deadline. Each author registration applies towards only one paper. If an accepted paper is not registered and/or not presented at the conference, it will be withdrawn from the proceedings and from IEEE Xplore. ICB-2018 reserves the right to exclude a paper from publication if the paper is not presented (no-show) at the conference.
  • Authors may not delegate presentation of their paper to a non-author in attendance.
  • Authors are required by IEEE to transfer copyrights for any papers placed in Xplore. This is performed at the time final versions are submitted for production. If a paper is withdrawn from the proceedings, copyright will revert to the authors.

Instructions for Paper Submission

Prospective authors should submit full length papers (up to 8 pages – the 7th and 8th pages will incur a cost of AUD$150 per page in the final version) in IEEE format. Submitted papers should not have been published, accepted or under review elsewhere. All papers will be subjected to a double blind review process. Papers accepted and presented at ICB-2018 will be published by IEEE and will appear in IEEE Xplore.

Instructions for anonymizing your submission (for double blind review process):

  • Simultaneous submission to arxiv is allowed.
  • Remove author names, affiliations, email addresses, etc. from the paper
  • Remove personal acknowledgments
  • When reporting experiments on data collected in your lab, consider stating this as “This experiment was conducted using data acquired in our labs”. Do not state this as “This experiment was conducted using data that was collected in our labs at Mars University”
  • When citing your own work, ensure that the narrative does not divulge your identity.

For example, assume that you have the following bibliographic item co-authored by you:
[1] A. Alice and B. Trudy, “On Anonymizing Papers: A Case Study,” 2006.
When citing your own work, consider using the following statement:
“The work by Alice and Trudy [1] demonstrates the possibility of generating anonymous papers.”
“The notion of anonymous papers has received considerable attention in the literature [1],[2],[3].”
However, do not state the following:
“Our previous work [1] showed that generating anonymous papers is possible.”
