Authors should refrain from submitting multiple papers on the same topic.

2016 IEEE Jack Keil Wolf ISIT Student Paper Award

If you wish to have your paper considered for this student paper award, then you are required to indicate this by choosing the appropriate category at the time of paper submission on the EDAS paper-submission website. Please also add the following text as the first sentence of the abstract: “To be considered for the 2016 IEEE Jack Keil Wolf ISIT Student Paper Award.”

Requirements for eligibility:

  1. One or more authors of the paper must be students.
  2. The principal author of the paper must be a student.
  3. The principal author of the paper must present the paper at ISIT 2016.

To be classified as a student, an author must be registered as a student at an educational institution at the time of paper submission. An author is classified as the principal author of a paper if all non-student authors certify that that author is the principal author.

Guidelines for Page Length and Format

Authors are encouraged to use LaTex to format their final manuscripts, using the standard IEEE conference specifications:

Manuscripts should use font size no smaller than 10 points, and have reasonable margins on all 4 sides of the text. The top and bottom margins should be at least 0.5 inches to leave room for page numbers. All fonts should be embedded in the PDF file.

The paper is limited to 5 pages in standard IEEE conference format. Manuscripts longer than 5 pages will be rejected without review. If full proofs cannot be accommodated due to space limitations, authors are encouraged to post a publicly accessible complete paper elsewhere and to provide a specific reference.

Please make sure that the submitted PDF documents:

  1. have no more than FIVE pages,
  2. have all used fonts embedded and subset,
  3. have no content written in the margins, and
  4. have page numbers omitted.
