Preparation of Abstracts

The 2014 IEDM abstract deadline is now closed.

Abstracts must be submitted electronically. PRIOR to preparing your abstract for electronic submission, please read the abstract preparation and submission guidelines below.

At the bottom of this page are links to templates, samples of good IEDM abstracts and a “How To Write For IEDM” link. Because our requirements differ from those of other conferences, we have prepared these guides to help you better understand what the IEDM is seeking.

Read all the following instructions before submitting your pdf file.

Abstracts for review must clearly state:

  • The purpose of the work;
  • The manner and degree to which it advances the art;
  • Specific new results that have been obtained and their significance.

THE DEGREE TO WHICH THE ABSTRACT DEALS WITH THESE ISSUES WILL STRONGLY AFFECT WHETHER THE PAPER IS ACCEPTED. The most common cause of rejection of submitted papers is a lack of specific results. Only work that has not been previously published at the time of the conference will be considered. Paper acceptance will be based solely on the information provided on the 3-page abstract submitted. Promises of upcoming results will be ignored.
