Call for Papers / WiP

    Last Update
  • 13/Dec/2022

IPIN solicits submission of high quality technical papers reporting original work not previously published, nor currently submitted for consideration elsewhere. Papers are submitted as one of two types (Note that your decision is final, i.e., papers cannot be transferred between the two tracks. However, authors of rejected regular papers will get the opportunity to resubmit their paper as a WiP paper for a second round with an quick turn-around review process):

  • Call for Regular Papers: limited to 6 IEEE format pages (including references), for oral presentation. Note that, prospective authors are invited to submit 6-page, original and unpublished full papers (IEEE format). After acceptance and successful revision, a full paper may be up to 8 pages long. However, please note that papers longer than 6 pages will incur additional page fees (per page) at the time of registration and final submission of the work. Please do not submit any paper longer than 6 pages for initial review (Download CFP flyer )

    Program Committee/TPCs: Joaquín Torres Sospedra, University of Minho, Portugal; Tobias Feigl, Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (GER); Stefan Knauth, Hochschule für Technik Stuttgart (GER); Christopher Mutschler, Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (GER)

  • Call for Work-in-Progress (WiP) Papers: between 5-16 single-column CEUR-WS format pages, for poster presentation (Download CFP flyer )

    Program Committee/Editors: Susanna Kaiser, German Aerospace Center (GER); Norbert Franke, Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (GER); Christopher Mutschler, Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (GER)

Paper submission

Manuscripts must be submitted on the IPIN 2023 submission page according to the following instructions and the deadlines shown in the side box. Deadlines are intended at 23:59 AoE.

Manuscripts are submitted according to the instructions for authors. Papers undergo a single-blind review process by at least two reviewers.

Accepted regular papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore® Digital Library. Note that proceedings will be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore® and indexing. Note that the IPIN Conference cannot guarantee inclusion in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library or indexing. Note that IEEE cannot guarantee that entries will be included in any particular database.

Accepted WiP papers will be submitted to, which is currently indexed by Scopus, Ei Compendex, and DBLP. Best papers are awarded during the conference.
