Covering Expenses for Paper Presentation & Publication

Please read carefully the following information concerning the registration procedure that is presented in the Author Instructions, especially if you are the prospective presenter of an accepted paper or if you need to guarantee inclusion of your accepted paper in the proceedings. An accepted paper will be published in the program and proceedings only if the full-fee registration payment for one of the authors is received and correctly processed by February 8, 2019 – no exceptions. In addition, the author must attend the conference and present the paper. Papers that are not presented will not be published. No exceptions.

Only an author registration at the full IEEE member or non-member rate are allowed to cover the presentation & publication of an accepted paper. To qualify for IEEE member rates, the membership number must be provided in the registration form. The student registration rates do NOT qualify for the publication of an accepted paper. If the author registering to cover the paper publication is a student, he/she has to pay the appropriate IEEE member or non-member fee. IEEE Members (e.g., Students, Life Members of the IEEE) cannot use the discounted rates to cover the publication of an accepted paper and will have to pay the full author registration fee.

One author registration will cover the publication expenses of only ONE accepted paper. Authors presenting up to 2 additional papers without a co-author registered at the full author rate are required to pay a surcharge of $100 USD for each additional paper. Authors presenting more than 3 papers must pay an additional full author registration fee for the 4th paper, $100 USD for the 5th, etc. For each additional accepted paper associated to the same registration, a $100 USD fee will be charged. In the case no registration has been received and correctly processed to cover the paper publication, the conference organizers will contact the authors before the paper is removed from the proceedings.

IEEE holds an annual programming competition called IEEExtreme. This is a global challenge in which teams of IEEE Student members compete in a 24-hour time span against each other to solve a set of programming problems. Multiple programming languages are allowed, and you use this platform: https://csacademy.com/ieeextreme-practice/. This competition is 24 hours straight, though it’s broken up into different tasks. Members can bring as many computers as they want, google all they want, etc. Each team can have a maximum of 3 members, and different teams cannot work together.

When?

20 October 2018 00:00:00 UTC, which means 19 October 2018 07:00:00 PM for us here in Memphis.

Where?

Currently, CBU and UofM IEEE are in the process of reserving an exact location. Everyone who fills out the google form below will be updated to the location of the event as soon as it is finalized.

Who can compete?

Teams of up to three collegiate students who are current IEEE student members. A local college or university may form multiple teams.

What could I win?

Fame: Unlimited bragging rights and an item for your resume.

Fortune: The Grand Prize is a trip to the IEEE conference of your choice, anywhere in the world.

For more information, go to ieeextreme.org.

As stated before, this competition is global, however it must be proctored by a professional IEEE member. CBU IEEE and UofM IEEE are planning to host this year’s competition for the teams in the Memphis area, and we will have more details to follow.
