Paper Submissions and Publications

The 3rd IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things (WF-IoT 2016) solicits two types of submissions.

  • Full papers describing original research. Suggested size is four pages; papers up to six pages will be accepted. Papers will be fully peer reviewed and, if accepted, included in conference proceedings and will be submitted to the Xplore Digital Library. Extended versions of selected papers may be considered for publication in IEEE IoT Journal.
  • Extended abstracts describing emerging results of new research areas or relevant topics from an industrial point of view, not to exceed two pages.

Submission Guidelines 

  • All papers must conform, at time of submission, to the IEEE Formatting Guidelines. Please use either this Word Template  or this LaTeX  package. Make sure that you use US letter page format.
  • IEEE takes the protection of intellectual property seriously. Accordingly, all submissions will be screened for plagiarism using CrossCheck. By submitting your work you agree to allow IEEE to screen your work. For more information please visit:
