 – Further guidelines for paper preparation and submission are given in the Submission Guidelines tab of this page.

 – Accepted papers should meet the following guidelines:

  • Aiming to be indexed, papers must be accepted and presented in an oral session during the SCLA 2021 Conference.
  • The official conference language is English; so, the conference presentations will be in English.

 – All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of six (6) printed pages (10-point font) including figures (template).

 – When preparing your manuscript, please pay also attention to the following:

    • Only the maximum number of up 5 co-authors per article will be allowed.
    • If your paper has been prepared using Microsoft Word, please ensure that you have used the most current version which will help reduce word-to-pdf conversion issues such as embedded fonts, bookmarks, etc.
    • No page numbers and no headers/footers


Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and not sent for a conference on the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE SCLA conference will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.
