*** It is important to read ALL of the information below carefully before submitting your paper.***

(This is ONLY for the CONFERENCE papers, not the Workshops Papers)

In order for your paper to be in the conference proceedings and IEEE Xplore you need to complete these four steps:

     Read the reviews and follow the reviewers' recommendations for revising your final paper.

2.  When you are done with revising, please print out your paper and proofread it. It is advisable to review IEEE formatting requirements.

3. Register for the conference with payment.
  When you are done with the registration, you will be given a Registration Code, which will be needed to upload your paper to EDAS.

It is imperative that the same author must upload the paper(s), review, and approved PDFs, and submit copyright form. (Only one e-mail address can be identified to a registration code).

If you are registering by fax, please allow 3 working days to receive your Registration Code.

Please Do Not Share Your Registration Confirmation Code With Anyone Else.

Although the code enables submission of up to three papers, it can be used only once, by you, to create one author account for these submissions.

The organizers of IEEE HEALTHCOM 2010, as well as our attendees, expect accepted papers to be presented at the conference. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

4. Upload your camera-ready paper to EDAS using the EDAS paper upload form.

5. Approve your PDF file

6. Submit your copyright transfer


PLEASE NOTE: To be published in the IEEE HEALTHCOM 2010 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the FULL (member or non-member) rate and present the paper at the conference. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper.  For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 papers. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE HEALTHCOM 2010 Conference Proceedings.  Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE HEALTHCOM 2010 Conference Proceedings and in IEEE Xplore®.

It is important for all IEEE authors to recognize that plagiarism in any form, at any level, is unacceptable and is considered a serious breach of professional conduct, with potentially severe ethical and legal consequences.

The full paper is due on Friday, May 28, 2010 by midnight EST. Use the same EDAS account you used when submitting the first version.

Each lecture style session room will be set with an LCD projector, a microphone and a laser pointer. Please bring your own laptop.
Each lecture style presentation is allocated 20 minutes. You should spend about 17 minutes for presentation of the problem, the background, the innovative approach, the new results and the comparative evaluation. An additional 3 minutes should be available for discussion with the attendees.
Sign the register to show that you have presented your paper.
The presenter should prepare a reasonable number of illustrations - in a Power Point file, so as not to exceed the 17 minute time. Typically, one (1) illustration is presented in three (3) minutes. Additional illustrations could be prepared to support possible answers to attendees' questions.
Each illustration should not be crowded by text and graphics. Too much text should be avoided:
Illustrations should support the presentation; they should not be simply read by the presenter.
Graphics help in communications, are more understandable, and point out the basic ideas.
Use large fonts so they can be read without a major effort; typically 18-20 point fonts should be used.
Presentation should be clearly structured.
Begin with a title page.
The index of the presentation should outline the presentation.
The basic problem should be clearly stated, as well as the application area.
Background and previous work should be summarized to provide a prospective for the results presented in the paper.
The innovative approach should be clearly stated.
The application of the approach to the application problem should be described, by pointing out the main features and characteristics, the problems and the solutions.
The results should be clearly outlined and evaluated.
Appropriate comparison with previous results should be presented.
Conclusions should summarize the work performed and point out the main innovation and results.
Future work and developments could also be sketched.
