Paper Submission

Papers will be selected in a double-blind refereeing process based on the submitted full papers.
Final papers should have no more than 7.000 words (max. 9 pages all inclusive) and should be in the correct format (template available below).
The paper should clearly describe its purpose and relevance, reference to existing theories and related works, research methods used and major results. Papers are expected to show the following structure: (i) Introduction, (ii) Relation to existing theories and work, (iii) Research approach, (iv) Findings, (v) Conclusion, and (vi) References.

Reviewing Process

Papers will only be accepted for review on the condition that the material is original, that it has not been copyrighted, published, presented or is currently submitted for consideration elsewhere.

Please see our ICE 2024 Author's Kit for detailed instructions about all relevant dates, correct submission of needed documents, and Conference Proceedings.

Review criteria will be:

  • The quality of the contribution to the existing body of knowledge in engineering, technology and innovation.
  • The relevance of the article in regard to the conference topics.
  • The scientific/innovation quality of the approach described in the article.
  • The redaction quality and clarity.

Based on the recommendations of the reviewers, the editorial committee will allocate submissions for oral presentation of papers and/or for poster presentations.

All accepted, compliant and plagiarism-free papers will be submitted for publication in the digital conference proceedings to be available via IEEE Xplore® (with ISBN Number and DOI for the paper), only if at least one author pays a full registration fee before the deadline and is presented by an author at the conference.

Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore and other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. All A&I providers can be found here: http://ieeeauthorcenter.ieee.org/when-your-article-is-published/abstracting-indexing-ai-databases/ and include amongst others Scopus and Web of Science

Authors of approved and selected papers will be invited to publish in special issues organized by prestigious indexed International Journals, subject to the international scientific rules for referee (list to be available soon).

Paper Presentation

Oral Presentation

Speakers will be allocated 20 minutes for presentation and discussion of their paper. The official language of the conference is English.

PAPERS NOT PRESENTED AT THE CONFERENCE WILL NOT BE INCLUDED IN THE CONFERENCE PROCEEDINGS.

Special Sessions Submission

The ICE 2024 Organising Committee invites proposals for conference special sessions focused on specific topics related to the MDTWeek. Conference special sessions should explain the means for soliciting and selecting contributions, proposing an independent review committee. Proposals should be submitted until 1st of March 2024.

For a position of larger visibility in the Conference and respective Committee, please submit your proposal to organize and to be chair for a "track" of sessions under the scope of one of the major ICE/IEEE ITMC 2024 conference areas. One "track" is constituted by at least 3 sessions in research sub-areas of the "track".

Please fill out the Special Session template and send your proposal to mdtweek@digit-madeira.pt with the subject "Special Session Proposal".
