Submission and Registration Policies

All papers submitted to the CDC 2023, whether for review or publication upon acceptance, must be written in English and formatted in the standard 2-column format provided on PaperPlaza. Submission site opens in January 2023.

For the purpose of “review”, all regular and invited papers are limited to eight (8) pages. PaperPlaza will not permit longer papers to be uploaded. The decision regarding the acceptance of each paper is at the discretion of the conference’s Technical Program Committee.

For “publication” in the conference proceedings, all accepted and invited papers are limited to six (6) pages. Authors may upload longer manuscript up to a maximum of eight (8) pages total. However, each page in excess of six will incur an additional overlength page charge.

If the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors listed on the paper must attend the conference and present the paper according to the scheduling decided by the conference’s Technical Program Committee.

In the event that the presenter is unable to attend the conference for any reason, it is his/her responsibility to insure that the paper is presented by a qualified colleague.

At least one of the authors listed on the paper must register for the CDC 2023 to upload the final manuscript.

Student registrants may upload one final paper.

Regular registrants may upload up to three final papers.

Additional papers can be uploaded with an overlength page charge.

All submissions will be tested for similarity and overlap with prior published material using the iThenticate tool. Results of such overlap will be made available to the Program Committee for evaluation. In case of possible violations of the IEEE ethics rules in publishing, the case will be investigated by a committee that reports to the VP for Publications.

Large Language Model (LLM) Policy

Please note that manuscripts generated by large-scale language models (LLMs) such as ChatGPT are prohibited as submissions to CDC 2023. We will allow papers for which LLMs are used for light-editing of the authors' original text, such as for spelling and grammar corrections.

When submission, the authors will be asked to confirm/certify that their submission represents the personal writing of and preparation by the authors, and was not generated by any large-scale language model, such as ChatGPT or similar.
