Online Review Process

The Technical Committee will visually inspect your full paper to assure that the document is readable and meets all formatting requirements to be included in a visually pleasing and consistent proceedings publication for EPEC 2015. If your paper passes inspection, it will be entered into the review process. A committee of reviewers selected by the conference committee will review the documents and rate them according to quality, relevance, and correctness. The conference technical committee will use these reviews to determine which papers will be accepted for presentation in the conference. The result of the technical committee’s decision will be communicated to the submitting authors by email, along with any reviewer comments, if any.

After you submit your document, you may monitor the status of your paper as it progresses through the submission and review process by going to the ‘My Paper’ area of the EDAS website available at:

Notification of Acceptance

Authors will be notified of paper acceptance or non-acceptance by email as close as possible to the published author notification date of June 19th, 2015.

The notification email will include comments from the reviewers. The conference cannot guarantee that all of the reviewers will provide the level of comment desired by you. However, reviewers are encouraged to submit detailed comments.

Because of the short amount of time between paper acceptance decisions and the beginning of the publication process, EPEC 2015 is not able to allow for a two-way discourse between the authors and the reviewers of a paper. If there appears to be a logistical error in the reviewer comments, such as the reviewer commenting on the wrong paper, etc., please contact EPEC 2015 Technical Committee Chair.

You will have an opportunity to modify your paper in response to the reviewer’s comments.  Information on using IEEE PDF eXpress to prepare an IEEE Xplore compatible PDF file has been provided to authors of accepted papers in the acceptance email.  Instructions for adding the copyright notice to the paper are available here: Copyright notice for papers submitted to EPEC 2015 rev 1.  The final paper submission deadline is July 27th, 2015.

Required Author Registration

Be sure that at least one author registers to attend the conference using the online registration system available through the conference website. Each paper must have at least one author registered, with the payment received by the author registration deadline (see above) to avoid being withdrawn from the conference.
