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 has engaged in either practice.

IEEE Web Page on Plagiarism: . IEEE Web Page on Double Submission: .

Papers must be submitted via the EDAS Paper Processing System.  Be certain to include all of the authors with their affiliations when you submit your paper for review.  IEEE Communications Society does not allow authors to be added to an accepted paper.  Additional paper submittal instructions can be found on the conference Web site .

Each accepted paper must have a FULL (member or non-member) non-refundable registration fee associated with it. If an author has multiple accepted papers, up to three papers may be covered by one registration fee. Registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the publication-ready version of the accepted paper.

Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE INFOCOM 2012 Conference Proceedings. Papers must be presented at the conference to be published in IEEE Xplore®.
“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.”
