ISPDC 2022 welcomes two main types of contributions, original research and oral communication.


ISPDC seeks two types of original research contributions:
* Full Paper
* Short Paper / Work in progress 

which should be indicated in the paper title by [Full] or [Short]. We encourage authors to select the appropriate length of paper based on the scope of their research contribution. Short papers, in general, have a smaller scope and/or contribution than full papers and provide an opportunity to describe significant novel work in progress or research. 

Accepted research papers (full and short) must be presented in-person at the conference by one of the authors. All accepted papers will be part of the IEEE ISPDC 2022 conference proceedings (Conference Record #55340) which will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore (subject to meeting IEEE Xplore’s scope and quality requirements) and are traditionally indexed by Web of Science and Scopus.

Manuscripts must be submitted by the submission deadline; full paper manuscripts may not exceed eight (8) and short paper manuscripts may not exceed five (5) single-spaced double-column pages using 10-point size font on 8.5×11 inch pages (IEEE conference style), including figures, tables, and references. The submitted manuscripts should include author names and affiliations. Instructions for submission will be posted on the conference’s website.

The IEEE conference templates for MS Word and LaTeX provided by IEEE eXpress Conference Publishing are available for download. See the latest versions here (

Files should be submitted by following the instructions above. All manuscript submissions are handled through the EasyChair platform


Oral communications will be presented at the conference, but will not appear in the proceedings. This type of contribution includes but is not limited to previously published work, position papers, results from R&D projects. There is no strict page limit for this kind of submission but submissions of 1-4 pages would be appreciated. In the case of previously published work, an abstract and publication information suffices for consideration. You may submit oral communication contributions directly to with the title: “Oral communication”.
