The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore®) if the paper is not presented at the conference UNLESS written permission to conference organizer (we provided alternative to present your paper).

Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE Malaysia Section  will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.
