1. Original Manuscript Submission
Authors should submit their original manuscripts via EDAS (https://edas.info). Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process. During the submission process, please select FCN 2023 and submit your manuscripts to a symposium that is most relevant to your manuscripts. The submitted PDF file and the registered information of a paper must list the same author(s), title and abstract (minor wording differences in the abstract are acceptable). Please add all authors in EDAS during the submission process. Failure to comply with this rule may result in the withdrawal of your papers from the review process. The author list of an accepted paper CANNOT be changed in the final manuscript.

2) Standard IEEE conference templates for LaTex format and Microsoft Word can be found at http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html. If you use Microsoft Word, please use A4 template.
