Frequently Asked Questions

How do I submit a revision of a paper?
TCAS-II does not encourage a submission of a revised version unless the revisions are minor and does not need to be reviewed again. If, after the first round of review, the referees suggest substantial revisions, the paper should be resubmitted as a new submission. For resubmission with minor revisions, use the submit paper button and not the deposit postscript button. Your paper will be given a new number. You'll be asked about the old number, and this will link your revision to the original manuscript.

What happens after I send in the final manuscript
Accepted and finalized manuscripts are shipped to IEEE for production. A list of the 'closed'  TCAS-II issues is posted on the WWW, so that you can verify that your manuscript was sent to IEEE. Thereafter, all communications regarding the manuscript in production should be done with the IEEE - CAS Office (Erin Bise, E-mail:

Which reviews can be entered using the WWW?
Only reviews of the papers logged into the new database, i.e., having a control number of 1, 2 or 3 digits.
