Call for Papers

The Program Committee of ISIT 2010 encourages interested authors to submit previously unpublished contributions from a broad range of topics related to information theory. In addition to new results in areas that form the core of information theory, researchers in related fields and experts working on novel applications of information theory are highly encouraged to submit contributions. Final papers will be five pages in length.

Important Dates

Paper Submission: January 13, 2010, 11:56 PM UTC -12 hours (Midnight at International Date Line)
Notification of Acceptance: April 1, 2010
Final Manuscript Submission: April 30, 2010
Author Registration: April 30, 2010

Invitation Letters for Authors of Accepted Papers

If your paper has been accepted, you may request an official acceptance notification letter. The letter will be sent by email in PDF format to any author of any accepted paper.

Style Files and Templates

IEEE conference specifications (standard letter-size format).

Final Manuscript

Authors are encouraged to use LaTeX to format their final manuscripts, as described above. Authors using other means to prepare their manuscripts should attempt to duplicate the style of the example as closely as possible. Limited revisions to accepted papers will be allowed. In general, changes should be limited to areas in which improvement was recommended by the reviewers. Changes to the title and author list are not allowed except for extraordinary circumstances. The time period allowed for revision to accepted papers is very short and the schedule will be held strictly, so if you decide to make revisions to your paper, be sure it is finished during the paper revision time period. Page limit for final submissions is set, again, to FIVE PAGES.

Accepted papers MUST be presented at the conference by one of the authors. The presenter MUST register for the conference prior to the deadline given for author registration (with a maximum of three papers per author registration). Failure to register before the deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of the paper from the conference proceedings and program.

Additionally, ISIT 2010 requires that each accepted paper be presented in-person at the conference site according to the published schedule. Any paper accepted into the technical program, but not represented on-site will be withdrawn from the official proceedings archived on IEEEXplore.

Electronic Paper Submission

In preparation for the initial submission process, authors must gather the following information:

  • Document file in PDF format;
  • Affiliation, email address and mailing address for every author;
  • Paper title;
  • Text file containing paper abstract in ASCII format (for copying and pasting into web page form).

ALL authors must be entered on the online form, and must appear in the same order in which they appear on their submitted manuscript.

After you submit this information, the system will display a page with the data that you entered so that you may verify its accuracy. If you need to change the data to fix a mistake, you may use the back button on your browser to return to the information entry form. Once you approve of the data that you have entered, you must select your document file for upload at the bottom of the verification page. When you click on the button labeled 'Continue' at the bottom of this page, the server will check the filename extension to make sure it matches the submission criteria, then your browser will upload your file to our server. Depending on the size of your file and your internet connection speed, this upload may take a few minutes. At the end of a successful upload, you will see a confirmation page displaying the paper number that is assigned to you, and an email message will be sent to the corresponding authors' email addresses to confirm that the file has been uploaded. If you do not see the confirmation page after uploading your file and do not receive an email acknowledgement regarding the paper, we may not have successfully received your file upload.

IEEE Copyright Transfer Form

The confirmation page that is displayed after uploading your document file will also generate an IEEE copyright form for your paper that you MUST print, sign, and fax to us. We will also accepted emailed versions in PDF or JPEG format, but they must be scans. The IEEE does not accept electronically signed copyright transfer forms. Our fax number will also be provided in the submission system. The copyright form must be received by us before the paper submission deadline. In the event your paper is not accepted, the form becomes null and void.

Online Review Process

If a paper does not meet specifications, it may be returned without review. A committee of reviewers selected by the tecnical program committee will review the documents and rate them according to quality, relevance, and correctness. The program committee will use these reviews to determine which papers will be accepted for presentation in the conference. The result of the committee's decision will be communicated to the submitting authors by email, along with reviewer comments, if any. Because of the short amount of time between paper acceptance decisions and the beginning of the publication process, ISIT 2010 is not able to allow for a two-way discourse between the authors and the reviewers of a paper.


The IEEE Information Theory Society and the Technical Program Committee of ISIT 2010 encourage authors to post preprints of their submitted papers on the arXiv preprint server at the time of submission. For information on this recommendation and on how to post articles, please visit the ITSoc website.


Presentation time is critical. Each accepted paper is allocated 20 minutes for oral sessions. We recommend that presentation of your slides should take about 17-18 minutes, leaving 2-3 minutes for introduction, summary, and questions from the audience. A computer-driven slideshow for use with a data projector is recommended for your talk at ISIT. All presentation rooms will be equipped with a computer, a data projector, a microphone (for large rooms), a lectern, and a pointing device.


Accepted papers will be published in full (up to five pages in length) on Flash drives, and will also be made available on IEEEXplore.
