Submitting a full paper

Check very carefully that all the information you have provided is correct.

Here is a checklist of what you should have provided and how to submit your full paper:

  • Access the online submission system. Please contact us if you need a reminder of your username and password
  • Click on the number of the paper you wish to submit
  • Check the title is still correct
  • Browse to upload your full paper PDF
  • Ensure a biography of the presenting author is entered
  • Ensure all authors are listed on the final page
  • Ensure affiliations are correct. This is for the organisation you represent, e.g. London Power Associates Ltd. It is not for professional affiliations e.g. The Institution of Engineering and Technology
  • Click finish to complete. You will then receive a confirmation email


If we do not receive your full paper by 20 November 2015 we will assume you no longer wish to participate in the conference and will be removed from the programme.


Reviewing of a full paper

All full papers are subject to review by the Technical Programme Committee.

You will receive a confirmation after this review has been completed to confirm your place in the programme.


Accepted papers

Each paper must have at least one author registered by 22 January 2016, to avoid the paper being withdrawn from the conference proceedings.

Authors may only register against a maximum of two papers. Authors presenting more than two papers must pay the additional paper fee.

The author must be present at the conference to present the submission either orally or by poster presentation or the paper will not be published.

Each paper should be the authors’ original work and previously unpublished in the form submitted.
