ICETE 2018 will have several invited keynote speakers, who are
internationally recognized experts in their areas. Their names are not
yet confirmed.  


Authors should submit a paper in English, carefully checked for
correct grammar and spelling, addressing one or several of the
conference areas or topics. Each paper should clearly indicate the
nature of its technical/scientific contribution, and the problems,
domains or environments to which it is applicable. To facilitate the
double-blind paper evaluation method, authors are kindly requested to
produce and provide the paper WITHOUT any reference to any of the
authors, including the authors’ personal details, the acknowledgments
section of the paper and any other reference that may disclose the
authors’ identity.

Only original papers should be submitted. Authors are advised to read
INSTICC's ethical norms regarding plagiarism and self-plagiarism
thoroughly before submitting and must make sure that their submissions
do not substantially overlap work which has been published elsewhere
or simultaneously submitted to a journal or another conference with
proceedings. Papers that contain any form of plagiarism will be
rejected without reviews.

Authors can submit their work in the form of a Regular Paper,
representing completed and validated research, or as a Position
Paper. A position paper presents results that are preliminary or that
simply require fewer pages to describe. A position paper may be a
short report and discussion of ideas, facts, situations, methods,
procedures or results of scientific research (theoretical or
experimental) on one of the conference topics.

All papers must be submitted through the online submission platform
PRIMORIS and should follow the instructions and templates that can be
found under Guidelines and Templates. After the paper submission has
been successfully completed, authors will receive an automatic
confirmation e-mail.

Authors of registered papers (including posters) must guarantee that
their papers will be presented at the conference. Papers which are not
presented will be excluded from the SCITEPRESS digital library and
will not be selected for any post publication.


All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings,
under an ISBN reference, on paper and on CD-ROM support.

SCITEPRESS is a member of CrossRef ( and
every paper on our digital library is given a DOI (Digital Object

All papers presented at the conference venue will be available at the
SCITEPRESS Digital Library.

It is planned to publish a short list of revised and extended versions
of presented papers with Springer in a CCIS Series book (final
approval pending).

The proceedings will be submitted for indexation by Thomson Reuters
Conference Proceedings Citation Index (CPCI/ISI), INSPEC, DBLP, EI
(Elsevier Engineering Village Index) and Scopus.
