The SICE Annual Conference 2018 accepts two types of submissions for review. Both types of papers should be written in English.
Papers (6–8 pages in conference format) should be submitted for review. The accepted papers will be included both in the conference proceedings and in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Normal length for the final manuscript of the regular papers is 6 pages; up to 2 extra pages are permitted upon payment of overlength page charges.
Extended abstracts (2–4 pages in conference format) should be submitted for review. This category is provided for authors who want to present a timely review of research, a case study, and so on. The final manuscript of the position papers should be 2–6 pages. The accepted position papers will be included in the conference proceedings but will NOT be included in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
Both types of manuscripts must be submitted electronically using PaperCept. Only PDF files will be accepted. In accordance with the IEEE Policy, all regular papers will be tested for similarity and overlap with prior published material using the iThenticate tool at the initial submission. The checking results will be used for the paper evaluation. At the final submission, the similarity checking will be performed for all submissions including position papers.

SICE Journal of Control, Measurement, and System Integration (JCMSI) will publish a special issue entitled “Special Issue on SICE Annual Conference 2018” in 2018. Please see the details on the web site of JCMSI (CFP URL: http://www.sice.jp/info/info_press/press_20180112-2.html).
The goal of organized sessions is to provide focused discussions on a new topic or innovative applications of a new approach. Each session consists of 6 papers, which will be reviewed via the normal review process. Both regular and position papers can be included in a session. For session proposals, it is recommended to include a brief statement of the session focus, together with the submission of the individual papers.
The proposals for the organized sessions must be accompanied with the following information:
- Session title;
- Session description;
- Session organizers (name, affiliation, contact information);
- Session chair;

The proposals must be submitted through PaperCept by the due date. The proposals are reviewed by the SICE2018 program committee. Please note that not all proposals may be accepted due to limitation of session slots. For the accepted proposals, the organizers are responsible for moderation of the session at SICE2018. Deadline of the paper submission is the same as those of regular sessions, and the accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings.
The invited session identification code can be found in the manuscript data shown in the acknowledgement letter. This code is needed for the submission of an organized session paper.
Workshops & Tutorials
The theme of workshops should focus on active areas of research and technology, in order to provide stimulating ideas for on-going and future topics. Tutorials should provide introduction on established fields of research and technology. We encourage state of the art programs with high level of interest, impact, creativity, and innovation that will attract a broad audience. Workshops and tutorials focusing on academia-industry partnership and technology transfer are also welcome.
The workshops and tutorials will be held at 13:00–17:30 on September 11, 2018, at Nara Kasugano International Forum, Nara, JAPAN. The proposals for workshops or tutorials must be accompanied with the following information:

- Main Organizer (one person only, address, phone, and email);
- Co-organizers (address and email);
- Statement of objectives;
- Intended audience;
- List of speakers;
- List of topics.
The proposals must be submitted through PaperCept by the due date. Upon approval the organizers will be asked to produce and maintain a dedicated workshop/tutorial webpage which shall be used to disseminate updated information on the workshop/tutorial and also to raise interest from potential additional presenters and participants. The organizers will also be required to collect and integrate workshop/tutorial abstract (A4 size, 1page) in due time for the production of the SICE 2018 handout.
