Instructions for Authors and submission



All UComms papers must be written in English, follow the IEEE 2 column format, not exceed 4 pages (plus references) and be submitted electronically in PDF format via the online submission portal. Links to LaTeX and Word templates can be found at the bottom of the page.
Papers submitted to UComms will undergo a strict peer-review process. Manuscripts will be reviewed by three reviewers, who will give detailed comments and — if the submission gets accepted — the authors submit a revised version that takes into account this feedback.

Accepted and presented papers will be made available in the proceedings and submitted to IEEE XPlore. Selected papers will be invited for expansion to be submitted for consideration for inclusion in a Special Collection in the IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering.


Plagiarism and excessive re-use of earlier material

Content of any submissions should be original and must not be submitted for consideration in any other conferences or journals. Submissions will be checked against (self-)plagiarism using the iThenticate tool provided by IEEE. Possible violations will be reported to IEEE for further investigation.


"Off-the-record" option for authors

UComms provides authors the option to submit "off-the-record" publications. This is intended for the cases where cutting-edge developments may be subject to sensitivities of a commercial nature (or others). Off-the-record contributions will not be published in the proceedings or IEEEXplore but must still go through the regular submission and review. During the conference, delegates will be asked not to take pictures or any recored element of the presentation.
