Papers are assessed based on originality, significance, interest, correctness, clarity, and relevance to the broader community. At least one author of each accepted paper is expected to attend the conference.

All submissions must come in PDF format and conform, at time of submission, to the IEEE Conference Proceedings Formatting Guidelines (title in 24pt font and full text in 10pt font, LaTeX users must use \documentclass[10pt,conference]{IEEEtran} without including the compsoc or compsocconf option. Also, papers must comply with the IEEE Policy on Authorship.

Each paper should be submitted in one of the following two categories, to which different acceptance criteria are to be applied:

  • Full paper, limited to 10 pages including references (double column, IEEE format)
  • Short paper, limited to 6 pages including references (double column, IEEE format)

Full papers are expected to report new scientific or engineering results, sharing experiences, measurements, use case studies, and appropriate quantitative evaluation if at all possible. Short papers can either be work in progress, or position papers that motivate the community to address new challenges. One paper among those that will be accepted for publication in the conference proceedings is going to be selected and awarded the Karsten Schwan Best Paper Award.
