IEEE INFOCOM incorporates a rigorous double-blind review process, empowered by a fully automated review assignment system that analyzes the submitted manuscripts and the representative publications of TPC members, and matches the submissions to TPC members’ expertise and interests. The automated review assignment system, termed Erie, is described in the following paper. 

B. Li and Y.T. Hou. “The new automated INFOCOM review assignment system,” IEEE Network, vol.30, no.5, pp.18-24, Sept./Oct. 2016.

Preprints Policy

The submitted manuscript or its title/abstract should not be posted on a public website, such as, or transmitted via public mailing lists. Authors will need to provide consent that their submissions may be subject to an early rejection if it is found to have more than 30% overlap with a single paper available to the public over the Internet (e.g., arXiv, webpages, etc.).

Anonymous Extended Report Policy

Note that the submitted papers are not allowed to refer to an extended/technical report, even if it is anonymous. Please include what you deem to be the most important technical content within the page limitations of the submission.

Conflict of Interests (COI)

A COI occurs when a person’s objective judgment is — or is perceived by a reasonable observer to be — compromised by an existing relationship, affiliation, or connection to a person whose work they must evaluate.

The following are considered to be specific exemplars of relationships that produce COIs. Individuals in such relationships should not be involved in peer review of, or making editorial decisions about, materials provided by the related parties.

  • Notable personal or professional rivalry/animosity (publicly known or not)
  • The lifelong relationship between Ph.D. student and Ph.D. supervisor
  • Personal or family relationships that would reasonably cause others to doubt impartiality
  • Within the last 24 months or reasonably expected within the next year:
    • Working closely together (e.g., at the same institution, company or organization; or within the same organizational team)
    • Recipients of joint funding or significant professional collaboration
    • Joint authorship of an archival publication

Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE INFOCOM 2022 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®. Full details of submission procedures and requirements for authors of accepted papers are available at
