Submission Instructions:
To submit an abstract, please click on SUBMIT ABSTRACT at left (via website, which is visible if menu is expanded.). All details and instructions are included there. Abstracts should be a minimum of 250 words, including sufficient detail to demonstrate the purpose of the paper, any preliminary results, and expected results for the final paper.

If your paper is accepted for presentation, you will be required to register for the workshop prior to uploading your final manuscript.  Preference will be given to full papers outlining applied cognitive technologies or novel simulations of such technology for intelligent aerospace communication systems.

Final papers can be prepared and submitted following five easy steps:

Step 1 – Prepare Your Paper

Paper must be written in English using the available Microsoft Word template.  Formatting may not be altered.
4 pages are required per paper in standard IEEE format, using the IEEE two-column format paper template (CCAAW template). 


Step 2 – Add Copyright information to the first page of the paper

The appropriate copyright notice is to appear on the bottom of the first page of each paper according to the guidelines set forth for an IEEE Conference Publication.  One form per paper, not per author.

  • For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright
  • For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: 978-1-5386-3988-7/17/$31.00 ©2017 Crown
  • For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 978-1-5386-3988-7/17/$31.00 ©2017 European Union
  • For all other papers the copyright notice is: 978-1-5386-3988-7/17/$31.00 ©2017 IEEE 


Step 3 – Check Your Paper

Use IEEE PDF eXpress site to verify the PDF file of the paper for IEEE-compliance before submission.  Papers that are not IEEE-compliant will not be included in the proceedings nor published.  See instructions below on how to create your account.

Creating your PDF eXpress Account

Log in to the IEEE PDF eXpress

First-time users should do the following:

      • Select the New Users – Click Here link.
      • Enter the following:
        • 41241X for the Conference ID
        • your email address
        • a password
      • Continue to enter information as prompted.
      • An Online confirmation will be displayed and an email confirmation will be sent verifying your account setup.

Previous users of PDF eXpress need to follow the above steps, but should enter the same password that was used for previous conferences. Verify that your contact information is valid.    

Step 4 – Sign the Copyright Form for each paper 

Authors need to submit an electronic IEEE Copyright Form (eCF) to complete their publishing agreement with IEEE.  

Submit Copyright

The Copyright Web Site will walk you intuitively through the process that will ensure the author signs the correct copyright form.  A PDF copyright document will be created and stored on the IEEE file system.  The author will have the ability to download the document and also receive attached copy of copyright form via email.

Step 5 – Upload Your Final paper

The final paper should be uploaded to the Openconf site.

IEEE requires all publications to be submitted to a plagiarism detection process prior to being uploaded to Xplore to ensure originality of the content. This will be done by CCAAW.
