## Step 1 Revise your paper: Similarity, plagiarism and self-plagiarism

Since IC_ASET will be submitted to IEEE Xplore which policy requires all IEEE content to be screened for possible plagiarism, IC_ASET 2018 has access to the CrossCheck database and has scanned all submitted papers.
Read more about the CrossCheck initiative to prevent scholarly and professional plagiarism at

http://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/rights/crosscheckmain.html#sect5

Similarity scores and scan reports are generated by an external provider and not by the conference. Please check the on-line report to understand how the similarity score was determined and which sections of your paper may need changes. Note that to be submitted to IEEE Xplore, the overall similarity rate of a paper should not exceed 30 percent, and the similarity rate to a single source should not exceed 10 percent. The score and report are provided to assist you in revising your manuscript, if necessary. The conference will not be able to provide you a score or a report for the revised manuscript.

You have to remove, replace, rewrite, redraw the content (text, figures, tables)  if any, from already published sources.  (See your similarity report sent with reviews)

Nothing is to be done on reference section. Anyhow, full sentences or paragraphs highlighted in the plagiarism report is to be removed or rewritten using new sentences.

## Step 2: Paper Formatting

* Paper submissions should be complete manuscripts.

Note: The standard page limit for each paper is 6 pages.

* Pages MUST NOT be numbered. The title and the author list of an accepted paper can only be changed, in the final manuscript, upon approval from the IC_ASET’2018 Chairs.

* Papers must be in the IEEE proceedings two-column format (A4 size). Please use this link for:

Word template: A4 (DOC, 56 KB)

* Papers with formatting that does not exactly follow the template will not be accepted by IEEE Xplore and cannot be published.

The appropriate Copyright Clearance Code notice is to appear as a footnote on the bottom of the first page of each paper according to the guidelines set forth in the Cataloging/Copyright Instructions for an IEEE Conference Proceeding. Detailed instructions can be found at: http://www.ieee.org/portal/pages/about/documentation/copyright/cfrmlink.html.

• For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright.
• For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: 978-1-5386-4449-2/18/$31.00 ©2018 Crown. • For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 978-1-5386-4449-2/18/$31.00 ©2018 European Union.
• For all other papers the copyright notice is: 978-1-5386-4449-2/18/$31.00 ©2018 IEEE. #### For MS Word users: In the MS Word template you may replace the text in the existing footnote where it says “Identify applicable sponsor/s here. If no sponsors, delete this text box (sponsors).” with the appropriate Copyright Clearance Code (CCC) notice. Here the Word template with a CCC code. #### For LaTeX users: • Use the conference document class from the IEEEtran package. • Add the CCC notice in the \IEEEpubid{} command. Copy this code instead of the one available in the template: \IEEEoverridecommandlockouts \IEEEpubid{\makebox[\columnwidth] { X-X-XXXX-XXXXX/XX/\$XX.XX~\copyright~2018 IEEE \hfill}
\hspace{\columnsep}\makebox[\columnwidth]{ }}


Where X-X-XXXX-XXXX-X/XX/\$XX.XX~\copyright~2018 IEEE should be substituted by the appropriate CCC indicated above. For example: \IEEEoverridecommandlockouts \IEEEpubid{\makebox[\columnwidth] { 978-1-5386-4449-2/18/\$31.00~\copyright~2018 IEEE \hfill}
\hspace{\columnsep}\makebox[\columnwidth]{ }}


• Add the sponsors, if needed, in the \thanks{} command of the authors definition.

## Step 3: IEEE Xplore-compliant Paper Approval

Final Papers for IC_ASET’2018 must be IEEE Xplore-compliant. For this aim, we have set up a PDF eXpress Plus page ( http://www.pdf-express.org/plus/) for you to upload your paper for approval.

If the paper conforms to all guidelines, you will receive an email with a watermarked PDF back from PDF eXpressPlus.

If you have not used PDF eXpress before, you will need to create an account first.

You will also need the IC_ASET’2018 conference ID 43443XP for IEEE PDF eXpressPlus.

Use IEEE PDF eXpress to check if your PDF file is Xplore-compliant, OR, else, you can use this site to convert your source files into an IEEE Xplore-compliant PDF file (e.g., for LaTeX users, create a zip file that includes dvi and your eps figure files all together, and then upload the zip file for the system to convert into a compliant PDF file; for MSWord users, upload the Word file and let it convert and return a compliant PDF

## Step 4: IEEE Copyright Form

IEEE policy requires that, prior to publication, all authors or their employers must transfer to the IEEE any copyright they hold for their individual papers. Transferring copyright is a necessary requirement for publication, except for material in the public domain or which is reprinted with permission from a previously published, copyrighted publication.

After the above steps have been completed, please upload a copy of the PDF you get from PDF eXpress Plus to Easychair.

After submission of the camera-ready on Easychair, you need the following files for registration :
