Initial Author Instructions

Author Registration

  • Each paper must be covered by a full Non-Student IEEE member or Non-Member registration fee.
  • Student Registration and Daily Registration fees do not cover paper publication.
  • Each full registration fee can cover up to 2 paper.
  • You must be listed as an author on a paper for the registration fee to cover the said paper.
  • Each registrant may represent no more than 2 papers.

Submission and Paper Specification Information

The organizing committee IEEE FLEPS Conference invites authors to submit papers for presentation at the IEEE FLEPS Conference. Submitting authors can choose between two options, resulting in a different publication outlet, if the paper is accepted:

OPTION A: Publication in the Proceedings of the IEEE FLEPS Conference, or

OPTION B: Publication in IEEE Sensors Letters

For either option, the deadline for submission remains the same as posted on the IEEE FLEPS website/Call for Papers (March 5, 2023). In either case, we expect to make the final decisions on all papers submitted by the regular submission through either option, by April 21, 2023. Please note that authors may not submit the same 3 – 4 page abstract to BOTH the FLEPS Conference site and to IEEE Sensors Letters, as this will violate the IEEE’s self-plagiarism clause and the authors will likely be subjected to serious consequences. Below are details of either option to aid decision and plan appropriate action.

OPTION A: Publication in the Proceedings of the IEEE FLEPS Conference:

  • ALL submissions must be made on-line via the following link:
  • Email submissions will NOT be accepted.
  • If you are making multiple submissions, you only need to create one web account. Use the same account (User name & Password) for any additional submissions.
  • If you need to resubmit your paper, it may be done up until the submission deadline.
  • Author information may not be changed after the initial paper submission paper passes
  • The submission will be reviewed by the conference Technical Program Committee and decisions made through the regular conference peer review process.

Paper Specifications

Use our conference paper  template (OPTION A) to meet formatting requirements below. Your paper must comply with the following specifications:

  • Paper Length: 4 pages (max) – 3 pages of text (max) + 1 page of references (max)
  • Paper Size: US Letter (8.5″ x 11″)
  • Fonts: Embed ALL fonts in your PDF file. Avoid the use of Type 3 fonts.
  • File Format: Adobe PDF (.pdf)
  • Allowed File Size: 2.0Mb
  • Do NOT page number your paper
  • Do NOT apply security settings to your PDF file

Note: Deviations from the above paper specifications will result in rejection of your submission.


OPTION B: Publication in IEEE Sensors Letters:

Authors whose papers are focused specifically on the topic of sensors, sensor systems, sensor interfaces, sensor applications, sensor materials and manufacturing processes within the context of flexible electronics and sensors may consider submitting such work directly to IEEE Sensors Letters journal. When submitting such papers, please use the following link and use the following template of IEEE Sensors Letters journal. During the submission, please choose “IEEE FLEPS” as the article type from the dropdown list. This will allow us to rapidly identify these special papers and quickly activate the regular peer review process for IEEE Sensors Letters so that it will be completed in time for the decisions on the final program. Papers that are submitted to IEEE Sensors Letters, but not selecting this option, will not be considered for the IEEE FLEPS Conference and will likely be reviewed and published (if accepted) through the normal journal review process. 

If authors opt for OPTION B, and their paper is rejected by IEEE Sensors Letters, they will be able to submit the abstract to IEEE FLEPS as a late submission. The deadline for late submissions will be set to a date after the initial program decision deadline. This will still allow such papers to be included in the IEEE FLEPS conference program (as is the case for OPTION A), if the quality of the work is reviewed to be acceptable by the conference technical program committee.
