Further considerations

  • I understand that mandatory page charges will apply to papers exceeding 6 pages.
  • I understand that previously published work will be rejected. I certify that this paper has not been published in another journal or conference record.
  • I understand that simultaneous submissions will result in rejection. I certify that this paper is not currently under consideration by any other journal or conference publication.
  • To qualify for review, revised or extended versions of papers presented in conferences, workshops, or other symposiums should include significant improvements. The title and abstract of paper should be different and at least 30% of content should be modified with new ideas and improvements. In this case, submissions should indicate clearly at which conference (or workshop, symposium) the manuscripts have been presented. Also the original conference paper needs to be submitted to the Transactions of the KIEE. Violation of this standard may cause ethical problems of dual publication. Each author bears the full responsibility for any legal issues.
