Submission Guidelines (Paper for Review)
Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers for publication in the ICDRET'2018 Conference Proceedings and for presentation at the Conference.

Authors must submit their manuscripts using EasyChair Conference Management System (Click here for the link) on or before December 31, 2017 . All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed for technical content and scope by a technical program committee.

All submissions should be written in English with a maximum page length of FIVE (5) printed pages for the full and TWO (2) pages for the short papers. Papers should be in PDF format, two columns, (minimum 10-point font) or greater and compliant with other IEEE manuscript guidelines. Standard IEEE conference templates for LaTeX and Microsoft Word formats can be used to write technical papers and are found here.

Conference content will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

Important IEEE Policy Announcement
The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE Communications society will take action against any author who engages in either practice.

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not currently under review for any other publication. Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an IEEE copyright release form and present their paper at the conference.

If you have any questions regarding the submission of manuscripts, please contact Dr. Anup Thapa (General Secretary) at anup.thapa@ku.edu.np.
