Information for authors

Information for authors of accepted papers

All accepted papers (full and short) will be presented in the technical sessions (oral presentation, 20 min). All accepted papers will be included into the conference proceedings on USB (given that the registration fee is paid). Presented full papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore and indexed by Ei.

If your submission is a full paper (5-6 pages), then please revise your paper according to reviewer comments (attached to the acceptance email) and upload the final paper. Detailed instructions are available below. The upload of your final paper is due on May 05, 2024.

IMPORTANT: The upload can only start after ALL submitted full papers have been reviewed and the authors notified (probably at the beginning of April). For this reason, PLEASE WAIT FOR AN EXTRA NOTICE FROM MARSS2024 PUBLICATION CHAIRS! They will inform you immediately as soon as you can start uploading your final paper.

If your submission is a short paper (1-3 pages), then you do not need to revise and upload your paper. The submitted paper will be included into the USB conference proceedings as it is. Consequently, you can ignore the information below on how to upload the final paper.

MARSS2024 policy requires thatat least one of the authors must register for the conference and pay the registration fee by April 30, 2024.

We encourage you to refer to MARSS2024 website periodically for further updates and news about the conference

How to validate your final Full Paper for IEEE Xplore® digital library

The paper must strictly follow the IEEE format (Word/LaTeX) to be submitted to the IEEE Xplore® digital library. PDF eXpress is a free service offered by IEEE to validate submitted manuscripts. It is mandatory to use PDF eXpress to validate your own PDF file for IEEE-Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function). The PDF files that were not validated by PDF eXpress will NOT be accepted by IEEE for the IEEE Xplore® digital library. Be aware that the validation process adds a special tag to your final PDF metadata, and the manuscript cannot be modified after the validation has been successfully completed.

To sum up, please create your IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF file in the following way:

  1. Proofread and check layout of manuscript BEFORE applying PDF eXpress.
  2. Go to the PDF eXpress web site.
  3. Create a new account by clicking on “New Users – Click Here” link OR Enter the same password that was used for previous conferences.
  4. Enter the Conference ID: 61851X
  5. Continue to enter information as prompted.
  6. Through your created PDF eXpress account, upload your PDF file for validating.
  7. If your PDF is successful, download the validated PDF. This will be the file to upload to EasyChair Proceedings.
  8. Technical support via email is available if you experience trouble in creating your PDF: pdfsupport(at)
