Authors are expected to submit only their own original works that is currently not under review somewhere else. The conference will verify the originality of manuscripts by comparing them with millions of other articles in databases worldwide. Manuscripts that violate IEEE’s publication principles may be rejected. If the violation is deemed severe, then disciplinary actions may also be taken by IEEE.


Final manuscripts of accepted papers must be submitted via ICAT 2022 Paper Submission System before the deadline. Only PDF files will be accepted.

IEEE maintains strict formatting standards for all manuscripts published in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library.

All PDFs to be included in IEEE Xplore® should be validated through PDF eXpress for Xplore compatibility.
