Author and Submission Guidelines
Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers for publication in the IEEE CCNC 2020 Conference Proceedings and for presentation in the symposia. All papers for the technical tracks should be submitted via EDAS.
All final submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of six (6) printed pages (10-point font) including figures without incurring additional page charges (maximum 3 additional pages with over length page charge of US$100 if accepted). Papers exceeding 9 pages will not be accepted by EDAS.
Download standard IEEE conference templates for LaTeX and Microsoft Word formats. Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process, and all submissions must be done through EDAS.
If you have any questions regarding the submission of manuscripts, please contact one of the Technical Program Chairs.
Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE CCNC 2020 Conference Proceedings and subitted to IEEE Xplore® as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
IEEE and IEEE Communications Society Policies
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 Communications Society will take action against any author who engages in either practice. Follow these links to learn more:
IMPORTANT: To be published in the IEEE CCNC 2020 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the FULL or LIMITED (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter in advance of the event and who is qualified to both present and answer questions. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one FULL or LIMITED registration is valid for up to 3 papers.
The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.
During the initial paper submission process via EDAS, it is the authors' responsibility to ensure that the author list and the paper title of the submitted pdf file is an exact match to the author list and paper title on the EDAS registration page. In particular, the EDAS registration page must include all co-authors, not just the submitting author. Failure to comply with this rule might result in your paper being withdrawn from the review process. Please be aware that the author list of an accepted paper CANNOT be changed in the final manuscript.
To ensure appropriate consideration of conflicts of interest during the review process, ComSoc prohibits changes to the list of authors once a paper has been submitted for review during review, revision, or (if accepted) final publication. The author list may be changed only prior to the submission deadline.
