It would be better to write to IEEE (they have an email address at the end), but I do not think you can republish this work, based on this part:

Although authors are permitted to re-use all or portions of the Work in other works, this does not include granting third-party requests for reprinting, republishing, or other types of re-use.


Normally the same paper cannot be published twice. To give the paper and yourself more visibility, your options are: (1) present it in a workshop without proceedings; (2) prepare an extended version that has additional content and publish that in a journal.

  • My paper in the above conference is an extented abstract Without any proofs and details. Now I want to submit the same paper with all proofs and details. Can I do it?

    @vector I think, yes. When filled with details, proofs, examples, extra experimental results, etc, it stops being the same paper.
