Conference Guides for [IEEE-CIS, INNS] conferences : Although this guide was initially set up for IJCNN2019, and was used for IEEE WCCI 2020, hopefully some of the basic information may still help [organising committee members, authors] up to 2023-2025 (assuming a half-life of links and process information of 3-5 years?). The Authors' and Publications menus have been combined, allowing authors to see the Publications Chair perspective as well. I am no longer keeping this up to date. Bill Howell, 11Dec2020

IEEE Publication Form

"Officially" the IEEE Conference Application (see above) must have been accepted (or at least submitted) before the Publication Form can be submitted, but I suggest that you don't wait. Prepare it early, and leave it in "Edit Mode" so that you aren't messing with it if deadlines get compressed.

I've done it again - I didn't realize that I could correct the contact on the conference application, and saw an error in the title of the Publication name. I hadn't intended to SUBMIT the Publication application, but that seems to have been done automatically or something.

Could you please "re-open" BOTH the Conference application and Publication application so that I can correct these?

Sorry about that.

Mr. Bill Howell
