Abstract/Paper Submission Guidelines
- Create an user account in the Conference Management System (CMS)
- Upload a two-page Extended Abstract (according to the template)
- Wait for the Reviewers’ results
- If the Extended Abstract is accepted upload your Full paper (according to the template)
- Register for participation (conference fee payment)
Abstract/Paper submission process is done through the following steps:
Below is more detailed step-by-step guide on the conference paper submission process:
A two-page structured abstract (A4, double column, 10 pt – see the template) for each paper should be submitted through the Conference Management System. It shall contain the title of the paper, author’s names and affiliation, the main contents of the paper (related work, general methodology, results, conclusion) and references.
Here you can download the Extended Abstract template (DOC, Microsoft Word, A4).
Each abstract will be reviewed by two reviewers. If accepted the authors will be asked to upload the full paper.
Full paper describing work not previously published or presented must strictly conform to the conference format. The full paper length should be between four and six pages. Authors should upload their papers through the Conference Management System. Papers which are not submitted through the Conference Management System or do not conform to the conference format will not be further processed!
Here you can download the IEEE full paper template (DOC, Microsoft Word, A4).
IEEE conference templates contain guidance text for composing and formatting conference papers. Please ensure that all template text is removed from your conference paper prior to submission to the conference. Failure to remove template text from your paper will result in your paper not being published.
Authors are requested to upload the following:
- Full (camera-ready) paper in both DOCX and IEEE Xplore-compliant PDF (see instructions below)
- A scanned copy of the bank (wire) transfer statement for the conference fee payment
- IEEE Copyright Form (for each paper) – see instructions below
IMPORTANT! All authors shall add the copyright notice (info) to their papers before creating IEEE Xplore-compliant PDFs.
The appropriate copyright clearance code notice is to appear on the bottom of the first page only (First Page Footer -Section1-) of each paper according to the guidelines set forth in the Cataloging/Copyright Instructions for an IEEE Conference Proceeding.
Authors are required to replace the text “XXX-X-XXXX-XXXX-X/XX/$XX.00 ©20XX IEEE” in the First Page Footer -Section1- field, in the IEEE Conference Paper Template with the following (highlighted in yellow – in most cases):
- For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright
- For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: 978-1-7281-9963-4/20/$31.00 ©2020 Crown
- For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 978-1-7281-9963-4/20/$31.00 ©2020 European Union
- For all other papers the copyright notice is: 978-1-7281-9963-4/20/$31.00 ©2020 IEEE
Proofread your source document thoroughly to confirm that it will require no revision.
In order to be included in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library authors shall convert a paper to a PDF and verify that they have IEEE Xplore-compatible versions of their manuscripts.
Authors could use the IEEE PDF eXpress Plus™, which is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing them to validate their papers for meeting IEEE Xplore® requirements. If there is a formatting issue, it will identify the problem for the author so it can be fixed.
IEEE PDF eXpress™ is not a manuscript-collection system and does not replace the conference’s submission system. Once authors verify that they have IEEE Xplore-compatible versions of their manuscripts, they will still need to upload the files to the Conference Management System.
Please, upload the full paper in both .docx (.doc) and IEEE Xplore-compatible .pdf formats packed together as a ZIP archive file to the Conference Management System. A full paper (the ZIP file) and a proof of registration fee payment have to be electronically submitted separately through the Lighting 2020 Conference Management System no later than the deadline (tba). The Copyright Form is signed electronically (via a link generated by the IEEE eCF system).
Papers not formatted according to the above templates and/or are not submitted by the deadline will not be included in the proceedings.
The paper should be reported personally by one of the authors. For the oral presentations it is recommended MS PowerPoint to be used.
IEEE is the copyright holder of the Conference Proceedings. All accepted papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings and submitted to the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library for distribution in scientific databases. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference, including IEEE Xplore® Digital Library, if the paper is not presented by the author at the conference.
The electronic IEEE Copyright Form (eCF) was introduced to authors and volunteers in May 2004. Since its inception, the eCF has successfully proven itself to be a highly effective tool that not only accomplishes its main goal of transferring ownership rights of the intellectual property to IEEE but does so by also saving significant amounts of time and effort on the part of IEEE authors, volunteers, and staff (Source: ieee.org).
The IEEE copyright form (one for each paper) is sent to the author’s email electronically. Follow the link attached in the email message in order to fill-in and sign the electronic copyright form. You need to fill in the title of paper, list of authors and IEEE Publication Title. For the IEEE Publication Title please use the following sequence of words: 2020 Fifth Junior Conference on Lighting (Lighting 2020)
IEEE requires all publications to be submitted to a plagiarism detection process prior to being uploaded to IEEE Xplore® to ensure originality of the content. The authors will receive the IEEE CrossCheck results (if the similarity percentage is under 30%, the Result is “OK”. If not, it is “Review Report”).

The conference will be held on September 24 – 26, 2020 at the University of Ruse. It is located at 8 Studentska Str., 7017, Ruse, Bulgaria
Ruse is the biggest Bulgarian city on the Danube River and the most significant transport, logistics, business and cultural centre of North Bulgaria. The number of the population is 150000.
23 centuries ago, an ancient Thracian port marked the beginning of the town. In the late 1st century, the Roman fortress of Sexaginta Prista (from Latin “port for 60 ships”) became part of the Roman Danube Limes, the northern frontier of the empire. Today, the ruins of Sexaginta Prista are an open-air museum exposition.
In the Middle Ages, Ruse and the Romanian city of Giurgiu on the opposite river bank existed as one settlement. In the early 17th century, Ruse developed into a centre of trade; the port played an important role in the commercial exchange between Central Europe and the Balkan area. That is why the city can be found on all geographical maps from that period.
In the 1860s, the city became the administrative centre of the Ottoman Danube Province, which covered a territory of the size of Bulgaria today. That was the time when for the first time in Bulgaria industrial companies were started in Ruse and the first railway line between Ruse and Varna was built. In the second half of the 19th century, the city was the seat of 11 European diplomatic missions. That accelerated the inflow of European influences, which triggered changes of the day-to-day routines of its residents. Ruse’s history is related to national heroes from the Bulgarian National Revival period. A large number of events that were pioneering to Bulgaria happened in Ruse, and that made the city one of Bulgaria’s major centres of cultural development.
In the 1950s the largest bridge across the Danube River in its Bulgarian section, and the only one until recently, was built. That bridge opened new prospects to the development of the city.
Ruse is a port on the Danube, where cultural traces from the West and the East, from the North and the South have landed and got rooted. The people living here, equally with the strangers, see Ruse’s identity as a bridge between cultures.
