Prospective authors are invited to submit a full paper (4 pages) describing original work. Only electronic submissions will be accepted. Papers should include title, abstract, and topic category from the list above in standard IEEE two-column format for consideration as lecture or poster. Both formats have the same value, and presentation method will be chosen for suitability. All submissions should be made electronically through the MWSCAS 2017 web site ( Students are encouraged to participate in the best student paper award contest. Accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings subject to advance registration of at least one of the authors.
