Why submit?

In addition to being able to present your research as either an oral paper or poster, as a successful author, the IET guarantees that your paper will be published and made available to the world’s leading research scientists and engineers via the following publications / databases:

IET Conference Proceedings

Your paper will be published in the official conference proceedings which is identified by an International Standard Book Number and recognised as a commercial publication.

All conference delegates receive a free copy as part of their registration fee.


IET Inspec

IET Inspec is a major indexing database and incredibly valuable source for scientists, engineers and information professionals around the world.

The Inspec database contains nearly 12 million bibliographic abstracts and indexing to journal articles, conference proceedings, technical reports and other literature in the fields of science and technology.

Inspec Direct is the English-language bibliographic information service providing access to the world's scientific and technical literature via a precision research tool with sophisticated support functionality that allows users to analyse, store and communicate their findings.


IET Digital Library

The IET Digital Library holds more than 100,000 technical papers from 1994 onwards for all IET journals, magazines, conference, and seminar proceedings.

Highly cited journals are available alongside, the IET's member magazine E&T, plus seminar and conference publications.


IEEE Xplore

Delivering full text access to the world's highest quality technical literature in engineering and technology, IEEE Xplore is a scholarly research database that indexes, abstracts, and provides full-text for articles and papers on computer science, electrical engineering and electronics.

The IEEE Xplore database contains over two million records which is almost one third of the world’s current literature in electrical engineering, communications and computer science.

Authors may have also have the opportunity to be filmed and have their presentation recorded, live at the event.

The footage of your presentation and synchronised PowerPoint slides will be made available via - a web-based service which delivers synchronised multi-media content to PC and MAC browsers anytime, anywhere in the world.


Ei Compendex

Ei Compendex is the broadest and most complete engineering literature database available in the world.

It provides a truly holistic and global view of peer reviewed and indexed publications with over 20 million records from 77 countries across 190 engineering disciplines.

Every record is carefully selected and indexed using the Engineering Index Thesaurus to ensure discovery and retrieval of engineering-specific literature that engineering students and professionals can rely on.


IET Journals

Depending on the quantity and quality of papers received, authors of very high quality submissions may be invited to, or may submit, a suitably expanded version of their paper for consideration as a technical paper in the IET Signal Processing Journal.

The internationally renowned, highly-cited research journals demand the highest standards of written contributions, and a commitment exists to maintain those standards. Therefore all submissions to the IET Signal Processing Journal will be subject to the rigorous peer-review process associated with a world-class, academic journal.

IET Journals

The IET has a high-quality and expanding research journals publishing programme. Please visit the IET Digital Library for further information about the IET publishing portfolio.

We are pleased to associate ICRE 2018 with the following IET Journals:

IET Electrical Systems in Transportation

This journal is aimed at all aspects of electrical power systems in modern transport applications including generation, storage, distribution and utilisation. The scope extends to all sectors of transportation: aerospace, marine (including sub-sea), automotive or land-based and rail.

The central theme of the journal is to focus on the system and sub-system aspects of electrical energy including system architectures and integration, energy management, control and protection.

ET Intelligent Transport Systems

An interdisciplinary journal devoted to research into the practical applications of ITS and infrastructures.

The scope of the journal includes the following:

Information collection and processing; In-vehicle ITS, safety and vulnerable road user aspects; ITS aspects of electric vehicles; Public transport; Demand management and electronic payment systems; Traffic management; Fleet and public transport logistics; Emergency and incident management; Policy and institutional issues; Interoperability, standards and architectures; Deployment and evaluation; Sustainability and environmental issues; Funding scenarios; Enforcement; Human machine interaction; Education, training and outreach; Deployments with enabling technologies.
