Preparing Special Features

Proceedings of the IEEE also publishes two special features, Point of View and Scanning Our Past.

Point of View

The Point of View feature allows authors to explore topics of personal interest and of interest to members of the IEEE community. This format provides a forum for both information exchange and discussion of important topics. The scope of this section ranges from opinions on the importance of particular new concepts or discoveries to discussion of educational and professional trends to personal positions and predictions on various technical topics.

Submission Guidelines

  • Point of View articles are usually between 1,500 and 3,000 words long.
  • Illustrations, graphics and images are welcome. References should be limited.
  • Authors can use either MS-Word or LaTeX for preparing the paper. For review purposes, a MS-Word or a PDF file is required.
  • Submissions should be sent to the Proceedings Editorial Office.

Scanning Our Past

The Scanning Our Past feature explores the history of technology and the people associated with it. Since papers in the Proceedings are read largely by engineers and technologists, historical papers should be accessible to technical professionals seeking social, political, economic, cultural, or technical contexts for the causes, processes, or consequences of technological change.

Submission Guidelines

  • Scanning Our Past articles are usually between 4,000 to 8,000 words long.
  • Illustrations, graphics and images are welcome. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission from copyright holders for reproducing illustrations, graphics, and images.
  • Authors can use either MS-Word or LaTeX for preparing the paper. For review purposes, a MS-Word or a PDF file is required.
