All papers which were accepted, registered (fulfilling the exceptional and one-time registration guidelines for I²MTC 2023), and provided presentations as per the presentation guidelines (slides & posters) for I²MTC 2023, and which subsequently will appear in the I²MTC 2023 proceedings in IEEE Xplore, are eligible to submit an extended version to the I²MTC 2023 Special Section in IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement (TIM).
Special Section of IEEE I2MTC in IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement
Papers of the I²MTC 2023 Special Section of IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement, intended to promote results presented at I²MTC 2023, will be published online as they are accepted, and the Special Section’s Table of Content will be published at the end of the year.
All papers which were accepted, registered, and presented at I²MTC 2023, and which will appear in the I²MTC 2023 proceedings in IEEE Xplore, are eligible to submit an extended version to the I²MTC 2023 Special Section in IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement (TIM). Each manuscript shall be within the scope of the TIM (click to see Scope of Transactions) and based on a paper published in the I²MTC 2023 Proceedings. Moreover, the manuscript MUST be technically extended beyond the scope of the proceedings paper, in terms of the overall TECHNICAL content and research results.
Important Note About Scope
Every year, a portion of submitted papers to the I²MTC special section in TIM are rejected immediately, without going to review, because they do not frame their writing in the context of Instrumentation and Measurement. To avoid this happening to your paper, please carefully and completely follow the 2-point description under the Important Note here.
TIM’s Special Section submission dates: July 17 - 31, 2023
Please note that the submission date will NOT be extended.
Preparation for Manuscript Submission
Please carefully follow the instructions under the “Paper Submission Instructions” heading of IEEE TIM’s Special Section Author Guide.
Notice: The I²MTC 2023 paper identifier should be put in the upper right-hand corner of every document to be submitted.
Extended Version of Proceedings Paper
If you are submitting an extended version of a previously-published proceedings paper, you must additionally perform the following tasks:
The paper identifier number (157. . .) should be noted in the top right corner of all documents.
All documents should be in PDF format.
- Upload a Cover Letter, explaining that the paper is an extended version of a previously-published proceedings paper. It should include the conference paper title and the extended manuscript title.
- If any co-authors present in the proceedings version have been removed in the journal version, the reason for the removal must be explained in the Cover Letter. Additionally, the removed co-authors must sign the same Cover Letter, stating that they agree to be removed from the journal version. If co-authors have been added, please list the author’s name and their contribution to the extended version.
- Upload a document with item type "List of Extensions" that explains exactly what has been extended from the proceedings version. Please note that TIM only considers "Technical Extensions"; i.e., the extension must present new technical thing(s), not just more explanation, etc.
- Upload a copy of the proceedings paper with item type "Copy of Proceedings Papers".
- Cite and refer to your proceedings paper in the extended journal version. Additionally, in the introduction, add a sentence which declares that this paper is an extension of the proceedings paper, or makes reuse of the proceedings paper, or some language similar to that.
- It is the responsibility of the author(s) to obtain permission to re-use and re-print materials from the proceedings paper and this permission must be obtained ahead of time from its publisher. The author(s) is (are) solely responsible for this and any other copyright permission-related requirements and issues. As per IEEE rules, if the proceedings paper was copyrighted by the IEEE, this permission is not required.
