TIM Special Issue


Authors of accepted papers at SAS 2014 have the option to expand their papers and submit them to the Special Issue Section in the IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement (TIM).


Special issue manuscript may ONLY be uploaded in the period of May 15-May 30, 2014. Please DO NOT try to submit your papers earlier, since the SAS Special Issue folder in Allentrack will not be available.


1. The paper must be TECHNICALLY extended beyond the scope of the paper that may have appeared in the conference or workshop proceedings (if any), and must be inside the scope of the IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement. The fact that the paper has been presented at the symposium does not, by itself, guarantee that the paper is inside the scope of the Transactions!

2. At the time of submission, May 15, 2014-May 30, 2014, the authors must provide detailed information (in a separate file to be uploaded as part of the submission process) regarding how the paper is a technically extended version of the proceedings paper.

3. The proceedings paper MUST be clearly referred to in the text and listed as one of the references in the special-issue paper.

4. A PDF copy of the proceedings paper must be submitted at the time of special-issue paper submission.

5. It is the responsibility of the author(s) to obtain permission to re-use and re-print materials from the proceedings paper and this permission must be obtained ahead of time from its publisher. An acknowledgement and permission statement required by the proceedings paper publisher must be properly incorporated in the Special Issue paper. The author(s) is (are) solely responsible for this and any other copyright permission-related requirements and issues. If the proceedings paper was copyrighted by the IEEE, this permission is not required.

6. When uploading your manuscript click on "Special Issue Manuscript" in the "Manuscript Upload Instructions" page of the Allentrack System.  Then, in page #1 of "Submit Manuscript" you must choose your specific Special Issue.  Subsequently, in the same page and in the "Files to Upload" section you MUST upload two files; one containing a detailed explanation of how the paper is TECHNICALLY extended beyond the scope of the proceedings paper and another which is a PDF copy of the Conference/Workshop Proceedings paper.  To this end, you must put the number "2" in the small box in front of "Extension Beyond Proceedings & Copy of Proceedings" (if any was published) so that the system allows you to upload these two files. Consequently, these two files will be available to the reviewers. Failure to submit a detailed explanation of the TECHNICAL extension and a PDF copy of the Proceedings paper will result in the immediate return of the manuscript to the author(s) as an unacceptable submission.
