Submission Guidelines

The CEWIT2012 conference is primarily interested in serving as a venue for the discussion of technical contributions highlighting end-to-end technical solutions, applications and systems, even if available only in prototype form. Therefore, we strongly encourage authors to submit abstracts (up to two pages) describing their contributions in an application-oriented context.

Abstracts will be evaluated by conference program committee members and external reviewers. Submissions will be judged on validity, originality, technical strength, practical significance, quality of presentation, and relevance to the conference topics. We encourage submissions from a variety of fields where in-depth application-centric ideas addressing important challenges related to the conference theme are discussed.

Please submit your abstract electronically at Authors of accepted abstracts will be required to submit a full paper to be included in the conference proceedings. Please follow the formatting instructions provided on our website.

CEWIT2012 will be held at SUNY Korea, located on the Songdo Global University Campus (SGUC) in the Incheon Free Economic Zone (IFEZ), Incheon City, which is one hour west of Seoul. Through mutual efforts between Stony Brook University, a flagship campus of the State University of New York (SUNY) system, and the Republic of Korea, SUNY Korea was established to bring American-style education to Asia. The recently opened SGUC offers state-of-the-art facilities designed by world-renowned architects. For more information about SUNY Korea, SGUC, and the City of Songdo, please visit,, and

The CEWIT2012 conference is technically sponsored by the IEEE. Peer reviewed conference papers will be included in the IEEE Xplore online database and cited in EI.
