About SICE 2014

The SICE Annual Conference 2014, organized by the Society of Instrument and Control Engineers (SICE), will be held Tuesday through Friday, September 9-12, 2014, at Hokkaido University, Sapporo, JAPAN. The SICE Annual Conference 2014 is an international conference covering a broad range of fields from measurement and control to system analysis and design, from theory to application, and from software to hardware. The technical program of SICE 2014 will consist of plenary and invited talks, tutorial courses, and workshops, as well as oral sessions. The official language of the conference is English. Novel interdisciplinary challenges transferable between plural fields are especially welcome. The technical program will include Plenary and Invited Talks, Tutorial Courses, and Workshops, as well as Oral Sessions. All submissions must be written in English.

Paper Submission

The SICE Annual Conference 2014 accepts two types of submissions for review.
Both types of papers should be written in English, and will be included in the conference proceedings.

Regular paper: Full papers (6-8 pages in conference format) must be submitted for review. The accepted papers will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Normal length for the final manuscript of the regular paper is 6 pages. Papers exceeding 6 pages may be submitted upon payment of overlength page charges. A maximum of 2 extra pages above 6 pages are permitted.

Position paper: Extended abstracts (2 pages of A4, 800-1000 words) must be submitted for review. Full papers (4-6 pages in conference format) will be required for final camera-ready submissions. This category is provided for authors who want to present a timely review of research, a case study, and so on. This type of paper will not be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Normal length for the final manuscript of the position paper is 4 pages. Up to 2 extra pages are allowed without overlength page charges.

The detailed submission policy is found on REGISTRATION & SUBMISSION page.

Organized Session Submission

The goal of organized sessions is to provide focused discussions on a new topic or innovative applications of a new approach. Each session consists of 5-6 papers which will be reviewed via the normal review process. Both regular and position papers can be included in a session. For session proposals, it is recommended to include a brief statement of the session focus, together with the submission of the individual papers. For further instruction, please see REGISTRATION & SUBMISSION page.

Tutorials and Workshops
