Technical Paper Submission

IEEE SoutheastCon 2022 will distinguish regular papers from posters; a regular paper appears as a complete work in the proceedings and is presented in a technical session at the conference, whereas a poster is pub-lished as a two-page extended abstract and presented as a poster.  At least one author for each accepted paper/poster must register as an author for, attend, and present the work at IEEE SoutheastCon 2022. All paper submissions will be checked for plagiarism and fully peer reviewed (targeting at least 3 reviews per paper).

Eta Kappa Nu Student Authored Paper

Starting with IEEE SoutheastCon 2022, IEEE Eta Kappa Nu will distinguish best student authored technical paper during the awards ceremony.  In order to qualify, award will be made to the student author with outstanding achievement in writing and presenting original research at a professional level.  As part of the selection process, authors will be required to physically present their selected paper during the technical presentation portion of SoutheastCon.

Paper Format and Template

Please submit papers in “final form” so that all revisions (if any) are minor. Once accepted, we will ask that you finalize the paper’s format for publication (adding copyright information and submitting through PDFXpress).

  • SoutheastCon 2022 adopts IEEE standard conference proceedings format.
  • All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of eight (8) printed pages (10-point font) including figures.  Papers of 9-10 pages will be accepted with the payment of additional page charges.
  • Papers exceeding ten (10) pages will be subject to immediate rejection.
  • Papers have to be submitted in PDF format.

Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings for Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats are found on the IEEE Manuscript Template page (

All submitted papers will be checked for plagiarism in addition to being peer reviewed (with a target of three reviews per paper). Authors of submitted papers may be called upon to help review other submissions. Only papers accepted and actually presented at SoutheastCon 2022 will be included in the final electronic proceedings and indexed as IEEE publications. The conference proceedings will be submitted to the IEEE Xplore® digital library.


Submission of a paper, an abstract or other material to IEEE SoutheastCon 2022 represents the author’s agreement to allow IEEE to publish the paper, abstract, or other materials in any written or electronic format for distribution to all interested parties in perpetuity with or without compensation to IEEE and without compensation to the author. The parties understand that the author is granting a nonexclusive license and all copyrights remain the property of the author. A e-copyright form must be electronically signed by the author for each accepted paper or abstract to be published in the conference proceedings.

IEEE SoutheastCon 2022 will be held as a HYBRID conference.  Authors will have a choice of submitting for the in-person conference in Mobile or for the virtual on-line conference to be held March 26-27, 2022. All accepted authors will have access to the published papers (proceedings) but only those who attend in-person will see the in-person presentations and participate in the session Q&As. Posters will be accepted ONLY for in-person presentation. All authors and attendees will have access to the virtual conference.

Papers are reviewed on the assumption that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (multiple submissions). These matters are taken very seriously, and the IEEE will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.

See the IEEE Web Pages on Intellectual Property Rights, Plagiarism and Multiple Submissions for further guidance:

To be published in the IEEE SoutheastCon 2022 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore, at least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the Technical Program Committee Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full conference registration must be accompanied by extra paper charges per additional paper.

Questions of a general nature should be directed to the Technical Program Chair,
