The ISCAS2021 paper submission and review process is being conducted in a manner substantially similar to previous ISCAS editions, including the double-blind review policy introduced at ISCAS 2020.
Prospective authors are invited to submit full length papers consisting of a complete description of their ideas and applicable research results in a maximum of 5 pages, of which 4 are for technical content including text, figures and references (if any), and with one additional optional 5th page containing only references. Paper not respecting this format (for instance longer, or the optional 5th page containing content other than references) may be returned to authors without review. Additionally, first-submission manuscripts will be checked to comply with the double-blind review policy. Failing to observe this policy may also result in papers not entering the review process.
Note: If your paper does not meet IEEE Xplore requirements (as outlined in the Paper Specifications section), it cannot be included in the Proceedings.

All authors MUST adhere to the following guidelines to conceal their identity:

In order to be eligible, the paper must have a student as principal (first) author, who must also attend the conference to present it.
The selection of the Best Demos will be made by a panel of judges on the basis of creativity, innovation, and visitor experience.
