The ICIT 2021 paper submission and review processes will be entirely electronic and will be conducted online using EDAS as described below:
To make the review process easy for reviewers, and to assure that submitted papers and final manuscripts are readable through the online review system, authors are asked to submit papers that are formatted according to the instructions given below. Submitted paper formatting is identical to final manuscript formatting. Papers not conforming to the required format will be rejected without review. Similarly, final manuscripts not conforming to the required format will not appear in the proceedings.
Please make sure that you put the conference name (ICIT 2021) and the paper number, assigned by the online submission system, on all correspondence. Additional inquiries regarding submission of papers should be directed to:
Dr. Ahmad Al-Thunibat, Al-Zaytoonah University of Jordan A.Thunibat@zuj.edu.jo
Authors are required to complete the procedures in the following list before the specified deadlines. Detailed guidelines for each of these procedures are provided below.
Papers should be formatted for standard A4 size paper using IEEE conference proceedings templates:
Word Template: Conference-template-A4
Latex Template: ICIT-Conference-LaTeX-template
For more information, refer to http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html
Use the following guidelines when preparing your paper:
You are allowed a total of 6 pages: This is the maximum number of pages that will be accepted, including all figures, tables, and references. Although not encouraged, authors can have papers longer than 6 pages, but not exceeding 8 pages. Each of the extra two pages will incur a fee. Any paper that exceeds the 8-page limit will be rejected without review.
All papers must be in English.
Papers should be formatted for standard A4 size (210 x 297 mm) paper. All printed material including text, illustrations, and charts, must be kept within the print area. The top, bottom, left, and right margins and the space between the two columns must be as set in the templates and not changed.
To achieve the best viewing experience for the review process and the conference proceedings, Times-Roman font must be used. If a font face is used that is not recognized by the submission system, your paper will not be reproduced correctly. Use font sizes as used in the template.
The title should be centered and in 24-points size. Do not use LaTeX math notation (e.g., $x_y$) in the title; the title must adhere to the Unicode character set. Also try to avoid uncommon acronyms in the title.
The authors’ name(s) should appear below the title with capital and small letters. The authors’ affiliation(s) should appear below the names with capital and small letters. The order of the authors on the document should exactly match in number and order the authors typed into the online submission form.
Each paper should contain an abstract of 75 to 150 words that appears at the beginning of the paper. Use the same text that is submitted electronically during the on-line submission process
Enter 4 to 6 keywords separated by semicolons. Keywords may be selected from the IEEE keyword list found at:
Major headings appear centered in the column. Subheadings appear in italic capital and small letters. They start at the left margin of the column. All text must be fully justified with single-line spacing. All paragraphs within a section should be indented.
Illustrations must appear within the designated margins. They may span the two columns. If possible, position illustrations at the top or bottom of columns, rather than in the middle. Caption and number every illustration. Figures and tables should be numbered consecutively and separately from each other. The illustration number should be an Arabic number for figures and a Roman number for tables followed by a period, e.g. Figure 1. or TABLE I. The caption itself should not be in bold and should be centered below the figure or above the table.All halftone illustrations must be clear in black and white. Color illustrations will appear in the electronic version of the proceedings, but the printed version will be produced in black and white. Therefore, make sure that your illustrations are acceptable when printed in black and white.
Number equations consecutively with Arabic numbers in parentheses placed at the right hand margin of each column.
List all references at the end of the paper. The references should be numbered in order of appearance in the document. Refer to IEEE conference proceedings template for more details.
Use footnotes sparingly (or not at all) and place them at the bottom of the column on the page on which they are referenced. Use 8-point type, single-spaced. To help your readers, avoid using footnotes altogether and include necessary peripheral observations in the text (within parentheses, if you prefer, as in this sentence).
Please do not paginate your proposal. We will add appropriate page numbers to accepted papers when the conference proceedings are assembled.
Papers must be submitted in Adobe’s Portable Document Format (PDF).
The conference is required to ensure that documents follow this specification. Simplified requirements for creating PDF files for IEEE Xplore are enumerated in:
The filename of the document file is not important since the submission system will rename the file but please make sure that you use .pdf extension for the file. After you submit the paper, please make a note of your paper number and use it in all your correspondence.
Authors will be permitted to submit a document file up to 4 MB (megabyte) in size. To request an exception, please contact the conference contact person listed above.
The following description outlines how to submit your paper electronically
When you have your document file ready, gather the following information before entering the submission system: Document file, Name, affiliation, address, and e-mail address of each author, Paper title, Text file containing paper abstract in ASCII text format (for copying and pasting into web page form).
Please obtain a username and password from the on-line submission system EDAS. This can be done in one of two ways:
Your submitted paper will be checked for errors and you will be notified if you need to re-submit your paper. If your submission passes the initial inspection, it will be entered into the review process. Depending on the subject of your paper, the Track Chairs will assign your technical paper to a committee of reviewers (not fewer than three reviewers). The reviewers will review your paper and will rate it according to contribution, quality, relevance, originality, and clarity of presentation. The conference Technical Program Committee will use these reviews to determine which papers will be accepted for presentation during the conference.
The Technical Program Committee’s decision will be posted on the website by the “Authors Notifications” deadline. Authors can login using their username and password and check the status of their paper and the reviewer comments. The review result, along with reviewer comments if any, will also be communicated to the submitting authors by email.
If your paper is accepted by the review process for presentation and publication at ICIT 2021, you should prepare your final manuscript for submission. This will be substantially the same as the submitted paper but must take into account reviewers’ comments. The ICIT 2021 Technical Program Committee reserves the right to reject a final manuscript if the reviewers’ comments are not adequately addressed.
When preparing your final manuscript, use the same formatting specifications described above. Final manuscripts not conforming with the required format will not appear in the proceedings.
ICIT 2021 papers will be submitted for publications in IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Therefore, all final manuscript files must adhere to the IEEE Xplore PDF specifications for compatibility. If your final manuscript file is not IEEE Xplore-compliant then it will be automatically withdrawn from presentation and publication.
More details on creating IEEE Xplore-compliant PDF files can be found under “File Format” discussed in Step 1 above.
In order to facilitate the process of creating and verifying PDF files, ICIT 2021 has registered for use of the IEEE tool: IEEE PDF eXpress Plus . This is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compliant PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore-compliance (PDF check function).
In order to verify that your final paper is IEEE Xplore-compliant please follow the steps below.
Go to the IEEE PDF eXpress Plus site and log-in as follows. The following procedure should be used by first-time and returning users (TO-DO: review this procedure).
Note : Uploading a paper to IEEE PDF eXpress Plus is NOT the same as submitting the final paper for publication. You will still need to submit the checked PDF of your final paper through EDAS. Please refer to the ICIT 2021 online final paper submission guidelines below.
You are required to submit the IEEE Xplore-compliant PDF file of your final manuscript by the “Final Submission and Author Registration” deadline. No extensions will be granted beyond the deadline. Kindly note that one of the authors must register (see Step 8 ) to enable submission of the final manuscript. Failure to meet the deadline will result in an automatic withdrawal of your paper from presentation and publication.
Please follow the steps below to submit your final paper electronically:
Similar to the paper submission, your final manuscript will be checked to ensure that it meets all formatting and compatibility requirements to be included in a visually pleasing and IEEE Xplore-compliant proceedings. If we encounter errors in the appearance or compatibility of your document file, you will be contacted by email.
Every ICIT 2021 paper accepted for presentation and publication must have attached to it an IEEE Copyright transfer form. You are required to submit the IEEE Copyright transfer form by the “Final Submission and Author Registrations deadline. No extensions will be granted beyond the deadline. Failure to submit the IEEE Copyright transfer form by the deadline will result in an automatic withdrawal of your paper for presentation and publication.
Please follow the steps below to submit your IEEE Copyright transfer form electronically:
The final version of your accepted paper will appear in the conference proceedings provided that at least one of the authors register. This must be carried out on or before the “Final Submission and Author Registration” deadline. Registration fees and instructions for registration are available under the Registration page.
