  • This year, we highly encourage authors to make their research results - including systems, benchmarks, or tools - freely available in order to gain research and design productivity within the FPL community. We further encourage authors to present working demo systems or tools in conjunction with the PhD-Forum.

    Authors are invited to submit original and unpublished contributions as 6 page papers in IEEE double column format to be considered as regular papers (up to two extra pages are permitted if necessary). Submissions accepted as posters will have 4 pages and extended abstracts for PhD forum contributions appear with 2 pages in the proceedings. All contributions must be submitted electronically in PDF format here. The conference proceedings will be published at IEEE Xplore.

    Papers should be prepared using the following guidelines and templates:

  • Latex template
  • Microsoft Word template

  • FPL2012 Poster Formatting Instructions

    Our poster boards can host posters up to 96x138 cm (portrait). This is a bit more than the page size A0. There is no official template and you can take the corporate layout from your institution, if you want.
    We recommend to only emphasize the key ideas and achieved results on the poster without using too much text.

    Each accepted paper MUST have at least one author with a paid registration for the manuscript to be included and published in the proceedings; an author is also expected to attend and present the paper at the conference.

    FPL's PhD forum is intended as a venue for PhD students to present their work and receive feedback from other researchers. Papers accepted to the PhD forum (two pages) will be published in the conference proceedings and presented at a special poster session during the conference. Contributions to the forum based on preliminary results or work in progress are particularly encouraged.
