Important registration information

All registrations are handled through the EDAS Conference and Journal Management System. If you don’t have any EDAS account yet, please create an account associated with an email address under which the conference organizers will be able to contact you.

Deadline for author registration: July 31, 2018
All other attendees like co-authors (if there is already a paid full registration for their paper) and non-authors may still register at any time after this date at their suitable fees.


  • In order to pay your registration fee, please go to the home page of your EDAS account and proceed through registrations available next to your submitted paper
  • In order to appear in the program and the proceedings, each paper requires at least one paid "Full Conference" registration at full (member or non-member), undiscounted (= non-student / non-"IEEE Life Member") rate, together with the camera-ready paper submission from one of the authors by July 31, 2018.
    Registrations that fulfill this requirement are marked in yellow in the table below.
  • For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration of the author as described above is valid for up to 3 papers. Student or IEEE Life Member registration will not be counted towards this requirement.
  • The paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference. There must be a paid registration under the presenter's name. If someone else will be paying the fees for the presenter, the one who pays should use his own account and use the EDAS feature to "register others".
