POLICIES HPCS 2015 ABIDES BY:
HPCS has a zero tolerance policy on intellectual property violations or misconduct, plagiarism, multiple submission, no show, and any other unprofessional conduct.
IEEE Intellectual Property Rights

Plagiarism guidelines: http://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/rights/plagiarism.html
In which index and abstract databases does IEEE include bibliographic records?
IEEE content is indexed by Google and has agreements in place with other publishers and services to include IEEE papers in their online and print indexes. Examples include INSPEC, Thomson Reuters’ Web of Science, Ei Engineering, and Village. For a complete listing, please click the Publishing and Indexing Partners link on the “Welcome to IEEE Xplore” help page. Please see https://www.ieee.org/documents/ieee_indexing_agreements.pdf.
The IEEE provides SCOPUS with all of the IEEE Xplore digital library content so that the bibliographic information (what is seen on an abstract page in IEEE Xplore, including the abstract) can be made visible. While IEEE does provide them with all of their content, it is not IEEE policy to determine what Scopus will or will not index. Additionally, once SCOPUS does load IEEE records, and the abstract is viewable to their users, the user can then link back to IEEE Xplore and lands on the abstract page of that particular record, enabling you to either view through a subscription or purchase the full text article.
If you have any questions, please contact the IEEE Customer Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IEEE Policy on No Show / Non Presented Papers
“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.”
Papers excluded from further distribution will be archived at IEEE but will not be indexed or appear in IEEE Xplore.
Change of Presenters and Presentation
Authors of a paper must specify the presenter (one or more of them) as early as possible by the May 22 deadline. Once designated, the presenter cannot be changed without the prior approval of the program chairs. A request of change of presenter must be submitted by authors in due time so that proper approvals can be obtained. The presenter is expected to present in person based on final program schedule. Any changes must be cleared with the program chairs first. No request for change of presenter will be considered once the draft program is made. Failure to do so, the paper will be treated as a no-show.
IEEE ComSoc Board of Governors Policy on Pre-publication Author Misconduct on Double-submission and Plagiarism
"In addition to the IEEE policies, pre-publication author misconduct, such as double-submission or plagiarism, will result in rejection of the manuscript(s), and a minimum 6 month ban on submissions to fully owned ComSoc publications by the author(s)."
