IEEE Templates for CoBCom 2018:
All required steps for paper submission and conference participation are consolidated in the following list.
1. Paper format
Please note that the paper format must be conform to our specifications. By using the links in the section above (IEEE Templates for CoBCom 2018) you can download the prefered format. Those templates are the official IEEE templates and will not be modified in the paper submission phase.
2. Paper submission and review procedures
Papers submitted to CoBCom must not have been published, submitted, or accepted for publication elsewhere. IEEE Communications Society Policy on plagiarism and multiple submission will be strictly enforced. For more detailed guidelines and policies, see IEEE intellectual property rights.
Submitted papers will undergo a peer review process, coordinated by the Program Committee. Papers will be evaluated by at least three independent reviewers.
Authors will achieve notification of acceptance or rejection via e-mail. Authors of accepted papers will be invited to submit final camera-ready papers for inclusion in conference proceedings.
3. Paper submission system (EDAS)
For the paper submission we use the EDAS submission system. To upload a paper to the CoBCom simply search for the name of the conference when logged in. Or you can also follow the link directly for the paper submission for CoBCom 2018 (will be available soon).
4. Paper publication policy
Submission of a paper implies the authors acknowledge the requirement of registration and attendance by at least one author at the conference. For an accepted paper to be included in the conference program and the Conference Proceedings, at least one of the authors is required to register by early/author registration deadline and attend the conference to present the work.
5. Conference proceedings
Accepted and presented papers will be published in the conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
6. Author registration
At least one author of each accepted paper must register before the Author/Early Registration deadline at the Member or Non-member rate. For detailed information on registration fees and procedures, see Registration.
7. Cost of participation
Expenses associated with the conference participation, including but not limited to the registration fee, travel and accommodation, are the responsibility of the author. The conference organizers are unable to provide funding or assistance in that matter.
