TITLE: How to write and publish IEEE style paper
SPEAKER: Julian Cheng
TIME:  10:00, 2/7/2015
LOCATION: Meeting room of library 
    Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) is world’s largest professional association which is widely known, among other engineering disciplines, for its high quality flagship journal and conference publications. For electrical engineering graduate students and researchers, it is increasingly demanding to publish their research findings in core IEEE journals and conferences. However, most top IEEE journals and conferences typically have acceptance rate at 35% or much less, and it is also rare that a manuscript receives an outright acceptance. In this talk, I will introduce basic elements of an IEEE style paper, and offer some personal tips and strategies on how to improve the odds of acceptance. The goal of this presentation is to provide the proper guidance to the beginning graduate students so that, with some practice, they can write an IEEE style paper with high confidence, which will allow them to focus more on the technical contributions of their work.


    Julian Cheng received his PhD degree in electrical engineering from the University of Alberta, Edmonton, AB, Canada. He is currently an Associate Professor (with tenure) in the School of Engineering at The University of British Columbia, Okanagan campus in Kelowna, BC, Canada. His current research interests include digital communications over wireless channels, orthogonal frequency division multiplexing, statistical signal processing for wireless applications, optical wireless communications, and 5G wireless networks. Dr. Cheng co-chaired the 12th Canadian Workshop on Information Theory (CWIT 2011), which was held May 18-22, 2011 on UBC Okanagan campus. In 2012, he chaired the 2012 Wireless Communications, which was held July 3-5, 2012 in Banff, Canada. Currently, he serves as an Editor for IEEE Communications Letters, IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications, IEEE Access, as well as a Guest Editor for a special issue of IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications on optical wireless communications. Dr. Cheng has served as a member of technical program committee for many IEEE conferences and workshops, and he is currently chairing the sixth IEEE Optical Wireless Communications Symposium at the 2015 IEEE Global Communications Conference.
