It only requires an email address and there is no cost, anyone can sign up at htto://edas.info.   All submitted papers for review are full papers not abstracts.

You will be notified if your paper is accepted. Once accepted please check the final version with PDFeXpress Plus account 45533X(web https://www.pdf-express.org/). This tool will check possible formatting errors for Xplore.  (if you have not used PDF eXpress before start with the New User click).

All authors are advised to be familiar with IEEE guidelines before submitting their manuscript, including the IEEE Policy on Plagiarism and on Double Submission. The Technical Program Committee will verify the originality of submitted manuscripts by using CrossCheck, which is an antiplagiarism software, comparing submitted papers with previously published work worldwide.
