Author Guidelines

Paper Formatting

The manuscript is written in Microsoft Word (in .doc or .docx, both acceptable), single space, Arial 10pt. The main text format is single columns on A4 paper. The page margin is 2.5 cm for all left, right, top, and bottom sides. Unless stated in the template, keep the paper format as simple as possible. A maximum of 25 pages is expected.

Organization of manuscript

Authors are suggested to present their articles in the section structure:

  • Introduction
  • Related Works
  • Proposed Method/Algorithm
  • Results and Discussion
  • Conclusion.
The Abstract should be 150 to 200 words in length. The Abstract should be informative and completely self-explanatory, provides short background, a clear statement of the problem, the proposed approach or solution, and points out major findings and conclusions.

The Introduction should provide a clear background, a clear statement of the problem, the relevant literature on the subject, the proposed approach or solution, and the new value of research, and should emphasize the novelty of the work. It should be understandable to colleagues from a broad range of scientific disciplines. The related review should be put in the "Introduction" section shortly and concisely to explain the difference (“gap”) between the manuscript with other papers.

The "(Proposed) Method" should describe the step of research and justification of how to get the data correctly, while the "Results and Discussion" section is the place to explain results in-depth and elaborate on the meaning of results. Please put your research in context. Therefore, always link your findings with previous works or published results of other researchers.

Tables and figures are presented in the center of the page and numbered consecutively with proper captions. All tables and figures must be cited in the manuscript

Equations should be written using native MS Word Equation or MathType. Do not use images for any equation, as the quality will be degraded during the production of the PDF version. The equation should be numbered consecutively. The number is put on the right side. Do not forget to explain any variables or parameters in the first use, especially under the equation.


Organization and citation of the bibliography use IEEE style in numbers, just like in [1, 2] or [3-7]. The terms in foreign languages are written italic. All references should be appeared and be cited properly in the text. Each citation should be written in the order of appearance in the text.

The main references are international journals and proceedings. All references should be to the most pertinent and up-to-date sources. Avoid unreliable internet websites (Wikipedia/blogs/news) as references.

Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors must check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
