You can then return to the EDAS log-in page ( and change your assigned password to one that is easier to remember. To do this, click on the My Profile tab, and then click on change your password. Be sure to record your username, password and ID number for later reference.

Preparation of the initial 1-page paper

Prospective Authors are invited to submit 1-page poster or live-demo abstracts, presenting cutting-edge research related to the theory and/or clinical validation of wearable, ingestible and implantable sensors and systems. This 1-page paper will be not included in the IEEE Proceedings, but authors are welcome to extend it for a full paper.

Authors of accepted abstracts are:

  • Required to present their work in the form of a poster;
  • Given additional space along with a poster board if they have live demo to present for their works;
  • Given the opportunity to highlight their work in a 2-min oral presentation during the Rapid Fire Sessions.

This session requires a different paper template compared to a 4-page paper. All submissions must be in US Letter page size format. Please follow the page margins strictly – thus, it is highly recommended that you use the downloadable MS-Word template. Click Here

Your paper must comply with the following instructions:

  • Both your initial and final submissions must be in double-column format.
  • Do not put your own page numbers or running headers/footers in the manuscript.
  • Write it in English.
  • Only the corresponding author can upload the final paper — but any of the co-authors can register for the conference.
  • The corresponding author is required to complete the registration process and pay the registration fee prior to uploading his/her final paper. If the corresponding author cannot attend the conference, then a co-author must arrange to attend and present the paper in their place BEFORE the final submission is uploaded and should update the system to reflect the change in corresponding author, complete registration payment and upload the final paper. Otherwise the paper should be withdrawn.
  • The corresponding author will need to verify and update (if needed) the final submission information before they are able to upload the final paper. If the corresponding author finds out that he/she cannot attend the conference AFTER the final submission is uploaded, a co-author must arrange to attend and present the paper in their place, notify the conference of the change and update the paper submission system to reflect the change in corresponding author. Registration for corresponding authors is non-refundable.

  6. Initial Full Paper is used to refer to the PDF form of your full paper. You can also upload the paper by clicking the My Papers tab at the top of the screen, and then select the upload icon on the same row as the name of your paper.
