Call For Papers

ICIN 2023 solicits original, unpublished work not currently under review by other conferences or journals. Papers submitted to ICIN 2023 will be assessed based on originality, technical soundness, clarity and interest to a wide audience. All submissions must be written in English and must use standard IEEE two-column conference template, available for download from the IEEE website: https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html

Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process and all submissions must be done electronically through EDAS using the following link: https://edas.info/N29708

Technical papers can be of two types: full papers or short papers, up to 8 pages and 5 pages respectively, including tables, figures and references. We also call for demo papers of up to 3 pages.

At least one author is required to register, at the full rate, to present accepted papers at the conference and for the paper to appear in the conference proceedings.

ICIN 2023 is  is technically co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE ComSoc
All accepted and presented papers will be published in IEEE Xplore
