Special Issue in IEEJ JIA:
The authors of conference papers presented at IPEC2018 have the opportunity to submit their manuscripts to IEEJ Journal of Industry Applications for possible publication. Special Issue on "IPEC-Niigata 2018" of IEEJ Journal of Industry Applications is also planned. (Please refer to the [Call for Papers].) All submitted manuscripts will be subject to the standard IEEJ review process.

Submission to IEEE TIA:
All papers actually presented in this conference may be eligible for review by IEEE-Industry Applications Society for possible publication in IEEE Transactions on Industry Applications or IEEE Industry Applications Magazine. Further information on IEEE-IAS publications, and on the obligations of authors, can be found in the Information for Authors on the IAS web site,


Make sure that your paper is substantially different from (your) previously published work. Manuscripts will be checked for plagiarism and multiple publication using IEEE CrossCheck Portal ( Submitting authors will be checked have they been prohibited from publishing with any or all IEEE publications using The IEEE Prohibited Authors List (PAL) Database.
