Page Limit

For the first submission, a manuscript in US Letter format can be of 6-8 pages.
For the final submission, a manuscript should be of 6 pages, with 2 additional pages allowed but at an extra charge.


Every accepted paper will need one associated full registration (even for a student paper) for being included in the conference technical program and proceedings.
We will soon publish the conference registration fee table, follow us on the social media accounts to stay up-to date.


As it is mandatory for any IEEE conference, we will implement a strict “No Show No Publication” policy, meaning that accepted papers that are not presented at the conference will not be published afterwards in IEEE Xplore. Such presentations must be done on-site, so participants and authors can talk and interchange their experiences and views. Face-to-face technical discussions are a precious element of quality of our conference.

All the papers submitted through Papercept (Contributed Papers and Workshop Papers) will be peer reviewed and all of the accepted papers, if they are presented at IV2019, will be published in IEEE Xplore.



IV is historically a single-track meeting dominated by poster presentations to maximize interaction between attendees. Oral presentations will only make up about 15% of the accepted papers. Oral presenters will be asked to also take part in a poster session. Full details regarding poster dimensions will be released after final acceptance notification.
