EDAS Submission Procedure
A. Submission procedure on iCAST-2018:
The conference participants consist of two types, the author who submits the paper then conducts the presentation and the participants who just want to attend the conference without having a paper.
For authors who will submit their papers are required to have an EDAS account, for authors who do not have an EDAS account must create a new account.
B. Create a new EDAS account:
For authors who do not have an EDAS account are required to create an EDAS account with the following process:
- Visit the page with address https://edas.info
- Click on icon “create a new account“
- Next will appear the form that must be filled, the required fields are marked *, but if the author wishes to fill all data in the form will be better.
- After the required field has been filled then next is tick on I consent to the EDAS privacy policies and click on button add this person.
- When you submit your information, you may have a list of candidate user names, Please check your name is already in the list.
- If your name is there, please use that account, you can always update your email address and affiliation if needed. Having multiple EDAS accounts is likely to lead to confusion, such as mis-assigned reviews or papers that are “missing”.
- If you check the “This is not a duplicate” box and click on “Add this person“, the system checks if it can reach your email address and sends you a password link by email. This ensures that email address is working and that you can receive email from EDAS.
- Usually, the password reset email arrives within a minute or two.
C. Registering Paper on EDAS:
Please register your paper to iCAST 2018 Submission system at EDAS conference system:
To sign in, enter your email address and password in the appropriate column of the form on the EDAS login page. EDAS will check whether your account exists or not, and respond accordingly. If you have an account but forgot your password, please follow the “reset your password” link and EDAS will e-mail a password reset link to you.
Registering the paper records the paper’s title, abstract, topics and authors in EDAS. Before submitting a manuscript for review, the paper has to be registered. After logging in to EDAS, you will see your overall EDAS system homepage.
After successfully entering the front page choose the conferencing type 01. Engineering Science Track or 02. Social Science Track, then fill in the complete submission paper form as follows:
- Enter title and abstract of the paper. Your paper title should NOT be in all upper or all lower-case.
- Check the box “Add yourself as author” if you are indeed an author of the paper. You can add other authors later and you can change the order of authors. Note that some conferences do not allow that you add or delete authors after the submission deadline, to prevent that authors try to defeat the conflict-of-interest detection mechanisms by omitting authors.
- Enter keywords, if configured for your conference.
- Select the topics from the list of paper topics that best classify your paper. (Not all conferences have defined topics.
- Once you have all the information filled in, click on the “Submit” button at the bottom of the page. This will lead to a page that acknowledges your paper’s registration and allows you to add authors. A confirmation e-mail will be sent to you.

D. Submitting and Uploading your Paper
After registering your paper submission, you must upload your actual paper, typically a PDF file. (Each conference decides which paper formats are acceptable).
To upload your paper right after registering your submission, simply follow the EDAS instructions on the acknowledgement page.
Alternatively, you can upload your paper later from your EDAS homepage. From there, you can upload your paper by clicking on the icon in the line that shows your paper’s basic information.
After you return to your EDAS homepage, you will see your uploaded paper. If you click on the paper number, you will see the paper details. If you click on the paper under “Document (show)”, you will see the PDF version that you uploaded.
From your EDAS homepage, you can see the status of your paper. Initially, when you are registered but yet to upload your paper, EDAS will highlight the paper with white color as pending, to show that no version of your paper PDF file has been uploaded yet. After your paper has been uploaded, the color indicating the status will change to yellow, and a confirmation e-mail will be sent to all authors.
