Guidance for IEEE Publications Regarding AI-Generated Text

At its February 2023 meeting the IEEE Publication Services and Products Board passed the following motion, to be used as initial guidance by IEEE Publications:

  • “The use of artificial intelligence (AI)–generated text in an article shall be disclosed in the acknowledgements section of any paper submitted to an IEEE Conference or Periodical. The sections of the paper that use AI-generated text shall have a citation to the AI system used to generate the text.”

Effective immediately, Editors-in-Chief should take steps to ensure that relevant author-facing communications, such as author instructions on the sponsoring Society/council website, are updated and editors and reviewers are aware of the guidance.

Contact the IEEE Editor Help Desk at editor-help@ieee.org with any questions.

    2. A ".pdf" file for report. The report should follow the PHM parper template or report template
    3. A folder including all codes to execute the model and a ".pdf" file providing a brief and strightforward explanation to the technical committee on how to use the code and run the model
  • Please submit your work by email to farnoosh.naderkhani@ieee.org.
  • We encourage participants use the Piazza platform which is an online gathering place where students can ask any question and doubts, answer, and explore under the guidance of our data challenge organizers. Please register via Pizza platform's link.
