Oral Presentation

Oral presentation consists of no more than 20 minutes (including questions) for presentation of the problem, the background, the innovative approach, the new results, the comparative evaluation and questions from attendees. Acceptable formats for presentations are MS PowerPoint 2007.

To perform the presentation, the following equipment will be available in the conference room:

Laptop computer (with MS Windows XP operating system and PowerPoint 2003) and a projector. Please bring your presentation on a memory stick to upload on the laptop provided prior to your session. Presenters have to check the consistency of their presentation on this computer.

The presenter should prepare a reasonable number of electronic slides, so as not to exceed the time. Additional slides could be prepared to support possible answers to attendees' questions. Also, the presenters are kindly recommended to be present in the hall at least 5 minutes before the beginning of the session in order to receive additional information from the session chair.

Each slide should not be overcrowded by text and graphics. Too much text should be avoided: slides should support the presentation, they should not be simply read by the presenter.

Graphics should be designed to help in the overall communications, to illustrate key points and clarify the basic ideas. Avoid excess graphics as this makes the overall file size large and can delay slide loading. Use large fonts so as they are readable without efforts: typically 20 point font is the smallest that should be used. Headers within the body are typically 24-pt and slide headers are typically 28 or 32-pt font. Use fonts that are easily readable.

Special Issue

in

The M&N 2001 Special Section of IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement is intended to promote best results presented at M&N 2011.

The M&N 2011 Special Section will contain papers selected on the basis of the results of regular peer review of the manuscripts submitted for consideration by the participants of M&N 2011. Each manuscript should be based on a paper published in the M&N 2011 Proceedings and presented at M&N 2011. However, the manuscript MUST be significantly extended beyond the scope of the proceedings paper (in terms of the overall TECHNICAL content and research results).

Special issue manuscript may ONLY be uploaded in the period of November 15- December 6, 2011. Please DO NOT try to submit your papers earlier, since the M&N2011 Special Issue folder in Allentrack will not be available.

Preparation for manuscript submission

The manuscript, together with the accompanying documents “viz. the manuscript submission cover letter, the IEEE copyright transfer form, and the overlength page charge form” must be submitted electronically using the web-based submission system. Prior to submission of the manuscript, its author, especially if he/she has not yet used that system, should register and obtain a password that will enable him/her to enter the system and read Authors Instructions and Manuscript Upload Instructions. Both instructions contain information of vital importance for the problem-free submission. In particular, Authors Instructions provide the guidelines for the preparation of the manuscript. The following additional requirements must also be satisfied when submitting the manuscript:

The manuscript must be TECHNICALLY extended beyond the scope of the proceedings paper, as mentioned above.

At the time of submission, the authors must provide detailed information regarding how the manuscript is a technically-extended version of the proceedings paper, as per the instructions below.

The proceedings paper MUST be clearly referred to in the text and listed as one of the references in the special-section manuscript.
A PDF copy of the proceedings paper must also be submitted, as per the instructions below.

When uploading your manuscript click on “Special Issue Manuscript” in the “Manuscript Upload Instructions” page of the Allentrack System.  Then, in page #1 of “Submit Manuscript” you must choose the proper Special Issue (i.e., M&N2011 Special Issue).  Subsequently, in the same page and in the “Files to Upload” section you MUST upload two files; one with containing a detailed explanation of how the paper is TECHNICALLY extended beyond the scope of the proceedings paper and another which is a PDF copy of the M&N 2011 Proceedings paper.  To this end, you must put the number “2” in the small box in front of “Extension Beyond Proceedings & Copy of Proceedings (if any was published)” so that the system allows you to upload these two files.  Consequently, these two files will be available to the reviewers.

Failure to submit a detailed explanation of the TECHNICAL extension and a PDF copy of the M&N Proceedings paper will result in the immediate return of the manuscript to the author(s) as an unacceptable submission.

Notice:
The M&N 2011 paper identifier should be put in the upper right-hand corner of every document to be submitted.

Travel and Venue

in

The Workshop Venue, Villa Orlandi, is located in Anacapri, on the enchanting Island of Capri, in via Finestrale 2. It is a seventeenth century villa which has recently been restored by the University of Naples, in rigorous respect of the original architecture. The villa is surrounded by a nice park and includes all essential facilities.

Transportation

The best way to reach the island from Naples is by either ferry (“traghetto” in Italian) or hydrofoil (“aliscafo”), leaving from Naples harbor “Molo Beverello”. The trip won’t take more than an hour.

The international Airport of Naples Capodichino (NAP) has connection to the major cities of Europe and Italy. To reach the “Molo Beverello” harbor from the airport attendees can either take a taxi (it is suggested to request the fixed rate run, which costs 19 euros up to January 2011) or the “Alibus”, which stops just outside the Arrival lounge. The Alibus is an express bus which only stops at the railway station and at the harbor. The ticket costs 3 euros and can be bought onboard.

Also attendees arriving in Naples by train can either take a taxi or the Alibus to reach the Molo Beverello harbor.
Once in Capri harbor “Marina Grande”, you can reach the Workshop venue in Anacapri:

- By bus: direct buses from the harbor Marina Grande to Anacapri every 90 minutes
- By cable railway (“Funicolare”)+ bus: cable railway from Marina Grande to Capri every 15 minutes, and then bus from Capri to Anacapri every 15 minutes
- By private bus (to be reserved for groups of minimum 10 people): info@staiano-capri.com
- By taxi.

COVERING THE EXPENSES FOR PAPER PUBLICATION
Do not jeopardize the publication of your work in the proceedings! An accepted paper will be published in the proceedings only if the full-fee registration payment for one of the authors is received and correctly processed by September 9, 2011 - no exceptions. Only member or non-member fees are allowed to cover the publication of an accepted paper. Student registration fees cannot be used to guarantee the publication of an accepted paper. If the author registering to cover the paper publication is a student, he has to pay the appropriate member or non-member fee. Members to whom the society bylaws grant special discounts (e.g., Life members of the IEEE) cannot use the discounted rates to cover the publication of an accepted paper: they have to pay the member fee.

One author registration will cover the publication expenses of only one accepted paper. For each additional accepted paper associated to the same registration, a 50 US$ printing contribution will be charged. In the case no registration has been received and correctly processed to cover the paper publication, the conference organizers will contact the authors before the paper is removed from the proceedings.

To qualify for member rates, the membership number must be provided in the registration form. No exception.
