Application Packet for IEEE CIS Technically Co-Sponsored Conferences

The application packet must be submitted by the conference general chair to the CIS Vice President for Conferences before applying to the IEEE for technical co-sponsorship.

The General Chair must indicate if he/she applies for technical co-sponsorship with or without proceedings acquisition. Applying for proceedings acquisition means that the IEEE will acquire the technical content of the event, taking copyright of the papers. These papers will be published in IEEE Xplore.

The application packet must contain:

  • A draft cfp for the conference that would be used for advertising the conference in pdf format

  • The proposal including:

      • Justification for IEEE CIS support

      • Statistics for the conference for the last 2 years: numbers of submissions and acceptance rates

      • List of committee members, highlighting those that are CIS members

      • Name of at least one IEEE CIS Technical Committee or Task Force close to the subject of the conference

      • Any other information that you wish to draw to the attention of the committee.
