Paper Submission:   

Submitted papers must be unpublished and must not be currently under review for any other publication.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 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 submission page. Authors should prepare a Portable Document Format (PDF) version of their full paper. Papers must be no longer than 9 pages, in font size no smaller than 10 points, 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 24, 2009, and the deadline for submitting the actual paper is July 31, 2009. 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 Miniconferences and considered for inclusion in the IEEE INFOCOM Proceedings, in the event that the paper cannot be included in the main conference program.
