Instructions for Authors: 

Submitted manuscripts must be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font) and must be submitted via EasyChair ( http://www.easychair.org/ ) as PDF files (formatted for 8.5x11-inch paper). The manuscripts should be no longer than 7 pages. Up to two additional pages are permitted if the authors are willing to pay an over-length charge at the time of publication (manuscripts should not exceed 9 pages in total). Submitted papers should not be previously published in or be under consideration for publication in another conference or journal. Paper titles and/or author names cannot be changed and/or added to the papers once papers are submitted to ICCCN 2014 for review. The Program Committee reserves the right to not review papers that either exceed the length specification or have been submitted or published elsewhere. Submissions must include a title, abstract, keywords, author(s) and affiliation(s) with postal and e-mail address(es) and phone number(s). A paper abstract must be registered on EasyChair by the deadline indicated below.

Review and Publication of Manuscripts:
Submitted papers will be reviewed by the TPC and judged on originality, technical correctness, relevance, and quality of presentation. An accepted paper must be presented at the conference venue by one of the authors registered at the full registration rate. Each full registration covers up to two papers authored by the registered author. Accepted and presented papers (by one of authors) will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. Note that each accepted paper must be presented by one of authors to be included in the IEEE Xlpore. Papers of special merit will be selected for possible fast track publication in the Computer Communications (COMCOM) journal.

Workshops: 
Please note that the page limit for the workshop program is different. It should be no longer than 5 pages with up to two extra pages given the authors are willing to pay an over-length charge per extra page. The detailed info can be found in the workshop Call for Papers. For any questions or additional information, please contact the General, TPC, or Workshop Chairs. If you are interested in organizing a workshop, please contact the workshop chairs.
