Paper Submission Guidelines

In order for the 2018 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium Proceedings to be published in a timely manner, it is important that authors follow the submission instructions to the best of their ability. Conference attendees will receive electronic access to the conference proceedings containing all papers presented at the conference as part of their full registration fee.

As the Proceedings is a record of the 2018 IEEE International Ultrasonics Symposium, only those papers which are actually presented and defended at the Symposium by the author during either an oral or a poster session will be accepted for publication in the Proceedings. In the event that an author is unable to personally present the paper, she/he MUST be represented in either the poster or oral session by an individual who is qualified to discuss the technical material in the paper and who will remain in attendance for the full session in which the paper is presented. All the session chairs will be recording the presenters attendance, both oral and poster, and sending the results to the Proceedings Editor.

All presenters, both oral and poster, are encouraged to publish in the conference proceedings. Full paper submissions are limited to four (4) single-side pages in the required two-column format. Invited papers can be up to ten (10) pages in length. For all papers: two (2) extra pages may be used at an excess page charge of $125/page. Payments for excess page charge are part of the paper submission process.

Instructions for the generation of the conference papers can be found at the IEEE Proceedings Author Tools Box at the following website: Here you will find Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings, IEEE Citation Reference, and IEEE Keyword Guidelines.

Part of the paper submission process involves standard conversion to PDF, and the authors will be given the opportunity to approve the converted files before the completion of the submission process. As part of the submission process, the author will have to indicate that they have read and conformed to the IEEE Proceedings formatting standards. Authors may risk having their paper not included in the proceedings if there is excessive deviations from the IEEE format standards. Our publication schedule will not allow the authors to make changes to their manuscripts after the deadline. If the papers deviate from the standard format they will be removed from publication.

IMPORTANT- Please notice that after you have proofread your paper, you should click the button, Submit My Paper, you will then receive an automatic confirmation email containing your paper ID (the same ID number as your submitted abstract). If you do not receive such an email, your paper has not been transmitted and you should login to the system to complete your submission. Once you have received your confirmation number for your submission, you will not be able to modify/edit your paper. If you find you must modify your submitted paper before the submission deadline, you will need to contact the Proceedings Editor (knakamur (@) to reopen your record. Once you do this, you must repeat the entire process and get a new confirmation Email.
