Q. How is the copyright on the manuscripts submitted to SCIS 2016 handled?
A. SCIS 2016 is organized as a domestic conference under the statutes of the IEICE. In accordance with IEICE rules, authors of submitted manuscripts are required to transfer the copyright on these works to the IEICE. Please refer to the IEICE Provisions on Copyright for details.
Q. Is the collection of presentation manuscripts included in the registration fee?
A. Yes, a USB key containing the presentation manuscripts and the online abstracts is provided to participants as part of their conference fee.
Q. Should the fees be paid in advance?
A. Yes, please use the online registration system and complete your payment by the registration deadline. If you encounter problems with the registration procedure or the payment system, please contact us.
Q. Can I resubmit my manuscript to an international conference or a journal?
Submissions to this symposium are not peer-reviewed, and we do not publish any formal proceedings. Therefore, submitting the same results to an international conference or a journal would presumably not count as a double submission according to the policies of most venues. Regarding copyright issues, please refer to the IEICE Provisions on Copyright.
Q. If I submit a manuscript, when is it made public?
The submitted online abstracts will appear on this website on the first day of SCIS 2016 (Jan. 19, 2016). The collection of presentation manuscripts, distributed to SCIS 2016 participants in the form of a USB key, will also be issued on the same day.
