The ConTEL proceedings will be published in hardcopy and electronically in IEEE Xplore®, and submitted for indexing in INSPEC. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., remove it from IEEE Xplore®) if the paper is not presented at the conference.
At least one author of each accepted paper must register before the Author/Early Registration deadline at the Member or Non-member rate. One author registration is valid for one (1) paper.
Authors of multiple papers: Each additional paper by the same author has to be registered under Additional paper category. One author can register up to 2 additional papers.
Please refer to the Registration page for complete information.
Authors of the best accepted papers will be invited to submit an extended version for possible journal publication after the conference.
