The conference committee has decided to submit the proceedings for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore library. Please be advised that your article will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore database if the following conditions are met:
- your article topic is within the IEEE Xplore Database scope, i.e. it concerns broadly understood engineering,
- the article will receive at least two positive reviews (the review process is ongoing),
- the copyright form is filled and sent (more information about this soon),
- the paper passes the anti-plagiarism check.
The publication in the IEEE Xplore Database is optional for the papers presented at the conference, all of them will either way be published in the Proceedings of PTZE 2018 with an ISBN number. Your article will then be properly prepared and sent to the IEEE Xplore Database to be considered there for publication.
Copyright forms will be collected using the electronic system. Links will be provided soon.
