Author Guidelines & Resources


Dear Authors:

Please read on if you have been notified that your paper has been accepted for publication by the IEEE in the proceedings of the 4th Interdisciplinary Engineering Education Conference (IEDEC2014) to be held 3 March 2014 in Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, California.

Each accepted IEDEC paper requires one full conference registration before Jan 15th 2014, to ensure inclusion in the conference program. Accepted papers must be presented in person at the conference in order to be indexed and appear in IEEE Xplore. This policy will be strictly applied.

Please click here to register.

Your final, publication ready manuscript is due on Jan. 18th, 2014. You must submit the final version of your paper as well as the IEEE copyright form to START system. Please follow the procedure in the acceptance email sent to you and use your pass codes to login to the IEDEC START site, and submit the final materials. Please contact the START administration if you run into any problem with your submission. For any further information please contact Paul Wesling, Publications Chair, by email at, or phone 1-408-331-0114.

Instructions for preparing your paper are embedded in the WORD Template and the Format Sheet. Please download and print them, for reference. Please follow the paper templates as close as possible as violating the formating might result in rejection of your paper.

Contact with your Session Chair

As IEDEC approaches, you may need to get in touch with your Session Chair. You can download a current listing of Session Chairs which should be available soon.

Page Limits:

IEDEC is published only on CD-ROM and the recommended length of papers is minimum 4 (four) pages, and maximum 10 (ten) pages, including all figures, tables, and references. The new WORD Template allows more information to be placed on each page, so we expect most papers to be from 4 to 8 pages. Extra pages over 8 and up to a maximum total of 10 pages will be charged at $200/page. So for example an author of a paper with 10 pages total will pay a US$400 fee. Papers over 10 pages in length may result in a request to rewrite/condense the paper.

Payment for extra pages should be received by IEDEC prior to Jan. 18th, 2014. Payment should be made (in US dollars) to the ISQED. If you are registering for the conference with credit card, you can request IEDEC to charge your credit card for extra pages as well. Otherwise if you are paying by check please send the payment to the following address:

PO Box 607
