Final Manuscript Submission Guidelines

Paper Registration Guidelines
All papers must be registered one week before the final submission deadline. The paper registration deadline is currently September 14, 2009 at 11:59pm IST. Given that papers will be submitted from locations worldwide, authors should pay particular attention to the time and date for the paper registration deadline.
Papers should be registered using EDAS at: http://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=7937.

Paper Submission Guidelines
All paper must adhere to the same formatting requirements as for camera ready papers .

Note: submitted papers will be reviewed to make sure they exactly match the submission guidelines.

For reasons of reviewing fairness, overlength and/or incorrectly formatted papers will be immediately rejected. Authors are strongly encouraged to use one of the style guides below (available for Latex or for Microsoft Word).

The paper submission deadline is currently September 21, 2009 at 11:59pm IST. As with many conferences, there may be a deadline extension. However, authors should not count on such a deadline extension and should (1) register their papers by the first deadline, and (2) submit their paper by the second deadline. Failure to complete both steps will lead to immediate rejection.

Submission of papers to COMSNETS 2010 carries with it the implied agreement that one or more of the listed authors will attend the conference and present the paper. Papers not presented at the conference will not be included in the final program or in the digital proceedings. Only under the most extreme of extenuating circumstances will a nonauthor of a paper be allowed to present another’s paper at the conference. Therefore, authors are strongly encouraged to plan accordingly before deciding to submit a paper.
Papers should be submitted using EDAS and the registration ID created above at:

Paper Review Process
All papers will go through an initial screen processing. Papers deemed highly unlikely to be acceptable for inclusion in the proceedings and presentation at the conference will be rejected.
Unfortunately, because of the anticipated large number of submissions and limited reviewing resources, papers that are selected for “quick rejection” will not be formally reviewed. Such a process allows the Program Committee to focus its resources on putting together the highest possible quality conference program.

Formatting Guidelines for Submitted Papers
Page limit: The maximum number of pages for a paper is 10 for full papers, and 2 for posters.

Overall appearance: Submitted papers should adhere to the appearance of the standard IEEE twocolumn format that is used for IEEE Transactions Margins: Papers must use a 10pt font on US Letter paper with margins no smaller than 0.75in for
the top margin, 1.0in for the bottom margin, and 0.625in for side margins.

Templates — Depending on whether you are using LaTeX or Microsoft Word for formatting your paper, you can download the following templates that incorporate the formatting specifications:

  • LaTeX : Paper, Bibliography
  • Word : Paper and Bibliography

Examine the IEEEtran LaTeX Class (template) V1.7 packages and IEEEtran V1.12 BibTeX (bibliography) packages. Be sure to use the template's conference mode. See template documentation for details. A cover letter for the templates, including more pointers, is also available.

For complete formatting specifications, you can download the IEEE Format Definition Table and Glossary.

Papers must be submitted in PDF (Portable Document Format) and compatible with Acrobat (English version), not including any special characters or nonstandard
fonts. We must be able to display and print your submission exactly as we receive it and using only standard tools and postscript printers, so we strongly suggest that you use only standard fonts. Simplified Requirements for Creating PDF Files is a threepage document that describes the essential steps in distilling PDFs. Make sure that the paper prints well on blackandwhite printers, not color printers. Pay particular attention to figures and graphs in the paper to ensure that they are legible without color.
