Camera-ready Submission Procedure

 Submission Procedure

PLEASE NOTE: To be published in the IEEE ICC 2020 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the workshop  and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the workshop unless the workshop chairs grants permission for a substitute presenter in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions.  Non- refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper.  Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE ICC 2020 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®. 

  • 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 Failure to comply with this rule might result in your paper being withdrawn from the review process.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 can NOT be changed in the final manuscript.
  • All 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 1 additional page with over length page charge for an additional fee, if accepted) in the standard IEEE two-column conference format. Papers exceeding 7 pages will not be accepted at EDAS.
  • You may also use one of the following templates for Microsoft Word: A4, US letter. 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 Workshop Organizing  Chairs.
  • Author registration is needed for any accepted paper following IEEE COMSOC rules.
  • Workshop registration is required by March 6 according to the information on the ICC website.

Submission Guidelines

Important IEEE Policy Announcement: The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Explore) if the paper is not presented at the workshop.

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:

IEEE Policy on Plagiarism

The IEEE PSPB Operations manual in Section 8.2.1, describes plagiarism in the following way:

"IEEE defines plagiarism as the use of someone else’s prior ideas,  processes, results, or words without explicitly acknowledging the original author and source. Plagiarism in any form is unacceptable and is considered a serious breach of professional conduct, with potentially severe ethical and legal consequences.  Section 8.2.4.D provides detailed guidelines for a) handling  allegations of plagiarism, b) applying appropriate corrective  actions when findings of plagiarism have been reached, and c)  referencing previously published material."

The guidelines in Section 8.2.4 of the PSPB Operations Manual also describe a method for investigating an allegation of plagiarism.  Section 8.2.4 states: "In considering the allegation, the responsible person shall appoint an independent ad-hoc committee of experts in the topic to confidentially investigate and make a recommendation on the allegation to the responsible person. View IEEE's Introduction to the Guidelines for Handling Plagiarism Complaints
