Information for Authors

Proceedings

Proceedings will be published as a Springer volume. The conference proceedings will be available in SpringerLink.

Submissions

Authors should prepare a manuscript of no more than 12 pages, including results, figures, and references, using the Springer Verlag contributed book style in LaTeX (SVMult) or MS Word.

Authors should submit a PDF file through the EasyChair submission link that will be provided later. If accepted, the final version of the submission will include either the LaTeX source or MS Word, with all figures, and the generated PDF.

If the manuscript is meant for a special session, the title you enter into the EasyChair system must have the name of the special session at the beginning (session_title: paper_title). For instance, if you are submitting a paper entitled "An Image Processing Algorithm to Detect Defects in Optical Fibers" to a special session on "Image and Signal Processing", the title you enter into the EasyChair system should be: "IMAGE AND SIGNAL PROCESSING: An Image Processing Algorithm to Detect Defects in Optical Fibers". In addition, please submit your contribution to the organizer of the Special Session.

Submissions

We strongly encourage students to submit papers under the mentorship of their faculty advisors. Special best paper awards will be presented at the conference banquet to recognize the accomplishments of students. To qualify, a student or a group of students must be the primary author(s) of the paper. The papers will be judged based on both manuscript content and presentation quality.

Event Speakers

Information will be available after the paper reviews are completed.

How to Get to Halifax

  • Halifax has one international airport, the award-winning Stanfield International Airport, located just 30mins from the downtown core.
  • Halifax Stanfield offers roughly 150 weekly flights from Toronto, 70 from montreal and 85 from Ottawa. With daily flights from Boston, New York, Newark, Philadelphia and Orlando.
  • Halifax Stanfield International Airport is also the only airport in Atlantic Canada to offer U.S pre-clearance, making travel that much easier.
  • HALIFAX AIRPORT SHUTTLE: Maritime Bus offers the Halifax Airport Shuttle, making it even easier to get to and from the airport stress-free.
