Final Paper Submission

Guidelines for Final Paper Submission

Revised 1 July 2014


Final versions of accepted papers must be uploaded to EDAS for inclusion in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®.   

IEEE and IEEE Communications Society Policies 

To ensure appropriate consideration of conflicts of interest during the review process, the ComSoc prohibits changes to the list of authors once a paper has been submitted for review during review, revision, or (if accepted) final publication. The author list may be changed only prior to the submission deadline for review.

To be published in the IEEE CNS 2014 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full or limited (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions.  Author registrations are non-refundable.  For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 papers.  Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE CNS 2014 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore® as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

TRANSFER POLICY:  All requests for registration transfers must be submitted via email to and received by Wednesday 22 October, 2014.  A $75 processing fee will be charged. 

Revise your Paper

Please read the reviews of your paper and follow the reviewers' recommendations for revising it and preparing the final version. When you are done with the revision, please print out your paper and carefully proof read it. Review formatting requirements can be found here.

Register to the Conference

For each accepted paper, at least one author must register for the conference at the full member/non-member rate.  Note that even if the author is a student, he/she must pay a Full Registration. For multiple paper presentations, one author registration is valid for up to three papers.

For conference registration, please go to the Registration page of the IEEE CNS 2014 website and follow the instructions.   After completing your registration write down your 11 character confirmation number, you will need to use it to upload your paper into EDAS.

Your final paper must be submitted no later than 11 July 2014 in order to be included in the conference proceedings. The maximum number of pages is nine.
