In addition to full-length regular papers, ATC 2018 welcomes Work-in-Progress
(WiP) papers showing innovative and original research in the areas of smart world.
Submissions from both industry and academia are strongly encouraged.
WiP papers are expected to report on early or ongoing research activities.
The WiP session will provide a forum to discuss novel ideas and emerging results,
presenting innovative applications and tools, and bring about novel research
questions, approaches, and directions.
WiP papers may be no more than 6 pages in length, or at most 2 additional pages
with the pages overlength charge, including figures, tables, and references.
WiP papers are expected to present early or ongoing research activities.
Novel approaches and preliminary results are especially appreciated.
The submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by members of the SmartWorld 2018
Technical Program Committee. All selected papers will be orally presented in a
special conference session. At least one author of each accepted paper must
register and attend the conference to present the work. The accepted papers will
be published in the conference proceedings by IEEE, and will be included in the
Digital Library in IEEE Xplore.
