Preparation of Papers

Papers must be submitted electronically by August 31, 2020. Deadline for submission of Late News papers is  October 2, 2020.

PRIOR to preparing your paper for electronic submission, please read the paper preparation and submission guidelines described below.

Please use the IEDM paper template provided to ensure that your submission meets the requirements.

Papers for review must clearly state:

  • The purpose of the work;
  • The manner and degree to which it advances the art accompanied by proper references;
  • Specific new results that have been obtained with clear experimental conditions and their significance.

The degree to which papers deal 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 4-page abstract submitted. Promises of upcoming results will be ignored.

Paper Preparation Instructions

Before submitting your paper for review, you must submit the source file to the IEEE PDF Express site to create the Xplore compliant PDF.  Once you have approved the Xplore compliant pdf, you will then upload that file to the IEDM submission site.
