Important IEEE Policy
The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after  
the conference (including its removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper  
is not presented at the workshop.

Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized  
material and have not been submitted to any other  
conferences/workshops/symposia at the same time (double submission).  
These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE Tainan Section  
will take action against any author who engages in either practice.

PLEASE NOTE:
To be published in the ICS 2020 Conference Proceedings and to be  
eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore(R), an author of an accepted  
paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member  
or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of  
that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission  
for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is  
qualified both to present and answer questions. Non-refundable  
registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE  
formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For an author with  
multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for 1 paper.

All accepted papers will be included in ICS 2020 Conference  
Proceeding, but only regular papers (full-rate registered and  
presented) will be submitted to IEEE Xplore(R).
