Paper Submission

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not currently under review for any other publication.Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an IEEE copyright release form and present their paper at the conference. The Proceedings of the conference will be published by the IEEE Communication Society and distributed at the conference; copies of the Proceedings will also be available for sale after the conference.

All paper submissions will be handled electronically in EDAS via the INFOCOM 2011 submission page. Authors should prepare a Portable Document Format (PDF) version of their full paper. Papers should be no longer than 9 pages, size 10 font or greater, and compliant with the margin requirement. Please refer to the INFOCOM manuscript preparation page for details. Manuscripts that are not compliant with the requirements may be declined without review.

The deadline for registering the title and the abstract of the paper with our electronic submission system is July 23, 2010, and the deadline for submitting the actual paper is July 30, 2010. All deadlines are 11:59PM PDT and are firm (i.e., no deadline extension will be made).

All submitted papers will be judged based on their quality through peer reviewing, where TPC members referee all papers and hold a TPC meeting to determine the set of accepted papers. A subset of the accepted papers will be invited to IEEE INFOCOM Mini-conferences and considered for inclusion in the IEEE INFOCOM Proceedings, in the event that the paper cannot be included in the main conference program.

Important dates

Abstract due Friday, July 23, 2010, 11:59 PM PDT (required)
Full paper due Friday, July 30, 2010, 11:59 PM PDT (firm deadline)
Notification of acceptance Sunday, November 21, 2010
Final version due Saturday, January 22, 2011

IEEE and IEEE Communications Society Policies

All IEEE INFOCOM 2011 technical and mini-symposium papers must be associated with an author registration at the FULL rate. For authors presenting multiple papers, one FULL registration is valid for up to three papers.

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.
