The IEEE Smart World Congress (SmartWorld 2019) will provide a forum for both academia and industry
professionals to present their latest research findings in different aspects of smart world. In addition to fulllength regular papers, SmartWorld 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.
Paper submission deadline: 26 April, 2019
Notification of acceptance: 10 May, 2019
Camera-ready submission: 19 May, 2019
WiP papers should be no more than 4 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 the SmartWorld 2019 TPC members. 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.
Authors are requested to submit original, unpublished manuscripts in standard IEEE proceedings format in
PDF. All submissions must be typeset in double-column IEEE format, with all fonts embedded. Submitted
papers must include the contact information of all the authors. Please make sure you use the latest version
of the templates to prepare your submissions. Due to the short interval between the notification of
acceptance and the camera-ready deadline, we strongly encourage authors to follow the camera-ready
formatting guidelines as close as possible.
The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates for conferences can be found at IEEE Manuscript Templates
for Conference Proceedings at https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html. Submissions
