Remember that papers are limited to six pages, excluding the references section.

Electronic IEEE Copyright Form

We have set up an Electronic IEEE Copyright Form (eCF) for the 2016 XXI Symposium on Signal Processing, Images and Artificial Vision (STSIVA). This will be the only Copyright Form accepted by the symposium.

The eCF has effectively accomplished the goal of digitally transferring ownership rights of the intellectual property to IEEE, and has also saved significant amounts of time and effort on the part of IEEE authors, volunteers and staff.

In your author console in STSIVA’s CMT website, you will find a link “Submit IEEE Copyright Form”. You have to follow the instructions provided to complete the eCF.
