Manuscript Submission Guidelines

Submission Process

Manuscript submission involves a two step process---a registration and the final manuscript submission, both of which share the same deadline (i.e., there is no separate registration vs. submission deadline). Papers may be registered and submitted on EDAS at http://edas.info/N8945.

The paper registration and submission is currently closed.

Formatting and Paper Size Guidelines

Full papers submitted for review should have a maximum number of 10 pages, and should adhere to the formatting guidelines described below. At the discretion of the TPC chairs, a small set of borderline papers may be invited for inclusion as "Poster Papers", with a reduced 4-page limit.

Papers must be submitted in PDF (Portable Document Format) and should be compatible with Acrobat (English version). They should not include any special characters or nonstandard fonts. Please ensure that your submissions can be displayed and printed without further processsing using only standard tools and postscript printers.

Make sure that the paper prints well on black-and-white printers.

A document that provides simplified requirements for creating PDF Files is available. It describes the essential steps in distilling PDFs. Please pay particular attention to figures and graphs in the paper to ensure that they are legible when printed using standard black-and-white printers.

The formatting guidelines for the submission and that for the final camera-ready version of the accepted papers are identical.

Overall appearance: Accepted papers will appear in IEEEXplore. Therefore, the submitted papers should adhere to the appearance of the standard IEEE twocolumn format that is used for IEEE Conference Proceedings. The papers should be typeset using 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.

For your convenience the templates for typesetting with LaTeX and Microsoft Word are available. Authors are strongly encouraged to use one of the style guides below

For those typesetting using Latex, 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.

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

See Camera Ready Paper Submission Guidelines for further information on formatting guidelines. Please use link, for details regarding font embedding in your final manuscript.

Prior to submitting your final manuscript, please check if the document is IEEE Explore compatible. For information on embedding fonts into your document, see link.

For reasons of reviewing fairness, papers that exceed the page limit and/or are incorrectly formatted will not be accepted for review.


  • Submission of papers to COMSNETS 2011 carries with it the implied agreement that the paper represents original work. We will follow the plagiarism policy of IEEE Communications Society. See http://www.comsoc.org/conferences/plagiarism-policy and the links therein. All submitted papers will be subjected to a "similarity test". Papers achieving a high similarity score will be examined and those that are deemed unacceptable will be rejected without a formal review. We also expect to report such unacceptable submissions to the superiors of each of the authors.
  • Submission of papers to COMSNETS 2011 also carries with it the implied agreement that one or more of the listed authors will register for and 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. 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: http://edas.info/N8945.
