Initial Full Paper Preparation

Submit your Full Paper through EDAS

Authors are invited to submit a Full Paper ( up to 4 pages, minimum 2 pages) reporting original research of theoretical or applied nature using the online submission system, EDAS. Shorter submissions will be automatically rejected.  Please note there has been a a change in formatting from previous years. The minimum abstract length is now 2 pages and maximum is 4 pages. Submissions in both formats are acceptable. The initial submission should summarize the scope of the final paper and explicitly include the primary results and findings, emphasizing new advances, theories and/or applications so that the program committee will be able to understand the originality and the value of the work. A submission implies willingness to register and present the work if the paper is accepted for presentation at the conference.

Manuscripts will be reviewed by the Technical Program Committee. Authors of accepted full papers must submit the final paper version according to the deadline, register for the workshop, and attend to present their papers. The maximum length for final papers is 4 pages without exceptions.

For your convenience, the IEEE Style Manual and Conference Paper Templates in various formats are available here.

*The maximum length for final papers is 4 pages without exceptions.

**High-quality papers that are accepted and presented will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore digital library and indexed by EI/Compendex.

Open Posters

“Open Poster” papers will not be in the proceedings, but participants will have to give the IEEE Inertial Sensors 2018 organizers the title and register for the conference.

The deadline for submitting your Open Poster is Thursday, March 1st, 2018. Please email your submissions to

Please submit the PDF version of the ACTUAL poster that you intend to display at the Symposium. Although the poster dimensions (40" x 30") are quite large, we ask that you submit the scaled down version in PDF so it is visible on screen for review as well as distribution to all attendees.

Although the accepted Open Posters are not published in the symposium proceedings, the final version of your submitted poster on or before March 1st will be distributed via email shortly before the Symposium.

The purpose of the Open Poster Session is to further encourage information dissemination and discussion by sharing of: (a) preliminary research that will interest the participants but could not be submitted to the Symposium earlier; (b) research that has been previously presented, but in a venue generally not attended by the symposium  participants; or (c) research, education and/or commercialization initiatives and ideas that are valuable to the Symposium participants but are not included in the formal program. Open posters that incorporate infomercial and/or advertising will be excluded. Open Posters are scrutinized for appropriateness based on the above listed criteria and will be reviewed by the Symposium Chair.

Please keep in mind the following:

  • The final dimensions of your poster should be no larger than 40 inches high by 30 inches wide.
  • Your poster MUST be in portrait style. NOT landscape.
  • The title of your paper should appear at the top of your poster in CAPITAL letters. This lettering should be at least 1 inch high. Below the title, place the authors' names and affiliations.
  • Make your poster as self-explanatory as possible, so that you will have time for in-depth technical discussions.

Please note that authors of accepted Open Posters will be expected to participate in the Open Poster Session on Tuesday evening, March 27, right after the regular poster session during the reception. You must register for the symposium before March 1. Registration Coming Soon

The “Open Poster” session to encourage participants to discuss informally very recent results, works in progress, and results recently presented elsewhere.
