Final Paper Guidelines

ICACCI 2017 requires that the submitted manuscript is solely from the author's own work and not from the work of others, unless explicit permission has been granted. This includes text, figures and tables. Information from published articles must always be cited explicitly. Proper citation is to give the credit to the work that is originally published, not to follow-up work or reviews. Citations should be given close to the information within the sentences or at the end of the sentence, not after several sentences or near the end of the paragraph. Even when citations are given, exact copying of a whole sentence or paragraphs should be indicated by quotation marks. Furthermore, reuse of part of a published figure or table requires a copyright permission from the publishers that hold the rights. All re-published figures and tables should explicitly indicate the original source. Plagiarism is viewed as a serious offense by IEEE and ICACCI and some cases could lead to a ban of 5 years in any IEEE publications besides notifying your institution and research funding agencies.
