Instructions & Templates

Dear authors,

Please, read the general information about the Forum proceedings before preparing your submission. Pay attention that when submitting forum paper you do not need to submit the abstract (and vice versa).

This year the submission process will be done in two steps:


  • Prepare your contribution. If you want to submit Forum Paper, pay attention that it should be prepared according to IEEE Proceedings format, so use .doc or .tex Paper Template. If you want to submit an abstract, please use .doc or .tex Abstract Template.
  • Please, keep in mind that all abstracts and forum papers should be prepared in English. The size of the forum paper should be 4 full A4 pages. The size of the abstract should be from 1 to 3 A4 pages.
  • The authors of Forum Papers should download and sign the IEEE Copyright Form (one form per forum paper, not per author). Please use '2017 IEEE International Young Scientists Forum on Applied Physics and Engineering' in the IEEE publication title field. This form should be uploaded at the submission stage.
  • Submit your contribution. To do so, log in to the YSF site, then use the left menu "Submission" link, which will direct you to the uploading page. Fill in all the necessary information and upload your forum paper manuscript and copyright form or your abstract. If you are using .doc template, upload .doc file. If you are using .tex template, upload generated .pdf file.
  • Note that if you need to make corrections in your submission before the deadline, you do not need to re-submit your materials. Just use the "Edit submission" button after logging in instead.


  • Receive confirmation of your contribution acceptance or corrections to be done to be accepted. If you submitted abstracts, that's all for you.
  • If you submitted Forum Paper, after confirmation you will be requested to convert the final accepted paper to .pdf using IEEE PDF eXpress Plus site. For that log in to the IEEE PDF eXpress Plus page (create an account if you do not have one yet) and use 41873xp as the Conference ID. Convert your final .doc file into .pdf format (the number of attempts for one paper ID is limited to 20) or check your final .pdf for IEEE eligibility (the number of attempts for one paper ID is limited to 10).
  • Upload your final converted .pdf file to the conference website before Sept 10, 2017.

All contributions will undergo reviewing process by Technical Programm Committee involving experts in the field.
