The steps required to finalize the upload process of papers are described in the following paragraphs:

Proceed with registration

As a first step, you must register for the conference.

PLEASE NOTE that any accepted paper included in the final program is expected to have at least one author attending and presenting the paper at the conference.

Authors of the accepted papers included in the final program who do not attend the Conference will be subscribed to a “No Show List”. The “No Show List” will also be made available to the following SMACD conference organizers, who can reject submissions from these authors in the following years, based on their past negative impact on the conference.

Camera-ready paper submission

While preparing the final version of your paper, please, make sure to read the reviews of your paper and take into account the reviewers' recommendations for revising it. Each accepted manuscript should not exceed four (4) IEEE style pages.
