Instructions for Authors

Papers published in Proceedings of the IEEE provide a survey, review, or tutorial treatment of important technical developments in electronics, electrical and computer engineering, and computer science.

  • Reviews critically examine a technology, tracing its progress from its inception to the present—and perhaps into the future.
  • Surveys comprehensively view a technology—its applications, issues, ramifications, and potential.
  • Tutorial papers explain a technology and may give practical information for implementing it. These papers are written for the purpose of informing non-specialist engineers about a particular technology.

Preparing Your Paper for the Proceedings

If the paper is unsolicited, please submit a four to six page proposal before submitting the full-length paper. See Instructions for Preparing Your Regular Paper Proposal.

If the paper has been invited, or a regular paper proposal has already been approved, see Instructions for Preparing Your Paper.

Criteria for Papers:

  • Papers must be accessible to the non-specialist reader as well as experts in the area.
  • Papers should always contain adequate motivational, background, and tutorial information.
  • Papers must offer new perspectives and insights.
