All submissions are processed electronically via the PaperCept paper management system. All papers will be peer reviewed. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the digital conference proceedings and made available on IEEE Xplore.



Papers must be submitted electronically for peer review through PaperCept by 22 February 2017. In PaperCept, click on the MED 2017 link “Submit a Contribution to MED 2017” and follow the steps. NOTE: If you do not have a PIN, you must register one first. The paper format must follow IEEE conference paper submission rules (two-columns, 10 point, Times New Roman, US letter size). Templates are available from the following links: LaTeX or MS-Word. You can either submit your paper in PDF format or else use PaperCept itself for compliant PDF conversion from LaTeX and MS Word documents.

The maximum number of pages per paper is six, including illustrations and references. Please note that pages over this limit will incur extra-page fees at the time of final submission and that in any case not more than a maximum of eight pages in total is permitted. All papers will be peer reviewed and acceptance notified by 17 April 2017.


Final versions of accepted papers are to be uploaded electronically by 5 May 2017. The submission of a paper implies that at least one of the authors will register and present the paper at the conference.

Thus, in order to be able to upload your final paper, one of the authors needs to register beforehand
When registering, please ensure that all the relevant information on the final paper(s) to be uploaded is entered correctly in the registration form. Within 24 hours of payment, typically just after midnight CET, registrants will receive a separate email containing codes that are required by PaperCept to enable final paper uploads.

One full registration can cover up to two final paper uploads. One student registration covers only one final paper upload. Additional charges apply if these limits are exceeded.


By 22 February 2017 Invited Session organisers must submit a Summary Statement describing: (1) the motivation and relevance of the proposed invited session, (2)  invited paper titles and (3) author names. This is to be uploaded electronically.

In addition, by the same deadline, all authors listed in the proposal must also submit FULL versions of their invited papers electronically. Each such paper must be marked as “Invited Session Paper” clearly indicating the title of the Invited Session, and submitted in the Invited Session Paper category on PaperCept. All the submitted invited papers will be peer-reviewed.



Proposals for tutorials or workshops should contain the title of the session, the list of speakers, and extended summaries (2000 words) of the presentations. Proposals for review must be uploaded electronically and also sent by email to the Tutorial and Workshop Chair by 22 February 2017.
