Submitting an abstract
Before submission, make sure that the following material is ready:

- Preferred topic area chosen from the conference scope (the Technical Programme Committee reserves the right to change the authors' choice of topic area)
Once you have the material and information listed above, you can proceed with the electronic submission of your paper.
The online submission system for abstracts will be open until Friday 17 May 2013. If you have difficulties in submitting your abstract, please try to shorten its filename.
- The working language of the conference is English, which will be used for all printed material, presentations and discussion
- The abstract template is a Microsoft Word file. Please save this template file to your PC’s hard drive and use it when you prepare your abstract
- If you are submitting more than one abstract you can use the same email address and password for each abstract
- Abstracts are required for all submissions. Abstracts must be submitted using the template form provided
- Each abstract must fit within the abstract template and use the Times New Roman or Times font, size 10
- Length - up to a maximum of two A4 pages (you may include diagrams)
- Special characters - When inserting special characters in text use the ‘Insert Symbol’ function (avoid code-numbers for the symbols)
It is essential that authors make sure all fonts are embedded and .pdf files are submitted unlocked. If files are submitted in ‘read only’ format or with security we may be unable to publish your paper.
On submission of your abstract the corresponding author will receive a confirmation of the receipt of the abstract. Your abstract will then be presented to the Technical Programme Committee for consideration.
Processing and publication of personal data
The personal information we receive from delegates will also be required after the conference. This is in order to render an account of the conclusions arrived at during the conference, for statistical purposes, and for the dispatch of information on relevant conferences in the future.
Personal data will be stored by The IET for future mailings and information on forthcoming conferences. Personal data may also, in certain cases, be released to other companies participating in the conference for the distribution of information and offers directly from them.
Each paper must have at least one author registered by Monday 9 September 2013, to avoid the paper being withdrawn from the conference proceedings. Authors presenting two or more 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.

The IET guarantees successful authors widespread exposure of their work, including inclusion on IEEE Xplore and potential publication of a special issue containing best papers from the conference.
It is with regret that we inform you that the IET, under the current UK, EU and US laws, is now prevented from providing any paid-for services to any person or legal entity based in Iran. This is because of severe restrictions placed on banking services which prohibits the IET from accepting from, or making payments to, any individual or organisation based within Iran via the Iranian Banking infrastructure or by any other mechanism.
As a result of this it is no longer possible for the IET to take registrations for this conference from any person or legal entity based in Iran.
Should you have any question regarding this matter please email: email@example.com.
