* Journal Special Issues
Selected papers presented at the IEEE Cybermatics Congress 2021 will be invited to consider submission (after significant extension) to the special issue in the following SCI-indexed journals:
  • IEEE Network Magazine
  • IEEE Internet of Things Journal
  • Information Fusion
  • MDPI Electronics
  • MDPI Sensors
  • Future Generation Computer Systems
  • International Journal of Intelligent Systems
  • Mobile Information Systems

* Submission and Publication Information
All papers need to be submitted electronically through the conference website with PDF format. Submitted papers must not substantially overlap with papers that have been published or that are simultaneously submitted to a journal or a conference with proceedings. A submission is limited to 8 pages for main conference regular papers, 6 pages for workshop papers or short papers in the IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Format with Portable Document Format (.pdf). A submission can have at most 4 additional pages with the pages overlength charge if accepted. Papers must be clearly presented in English, including tables, figures, references and appendices. Papers will be selected based on their originality, significance, relevance, and clarity of presentation assessed by at least three reviewers. Submission of a paper should be regarded as a commitment that, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will register and present the work, with either online or offline presentation. IEEE CPSCom 2021 reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from the digital library and indexing services), if the paper is not presented at the conference. Accepted and presented papers will be submitted in the IEEE for indexing. Distinguished papers presented at the conference, after further revision, will be published in special issues of high quality international journals. Two or three outstanding papers will be selected to receive the Best Paper Awards.
