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.

To be published in the IEEE/CIC ICCC 2015 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the Workshop Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter.

For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 2papers. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE/CIC ICCC 2015 conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®.

Submit your Paper

Your final paper must be submitted no later than October 8, 2015 in order to be included in the conference proceedings.  The maximum paper length of five (5) printed pages. 1 additional page bringing the maximum  to six (6) printed pages  is permitted with an over length page charge of $100 USD. If you experience any problems during the upload process of your paper on EDAS, please contact

IEEE PDF eXpress converts the following file types to PDF:
Rich Text Format
(La)TeX (DVI and all support files required)*
Word Pro
Microsoft Word

*For documents created in formats that do not embed source files, include all support files with the final manuscript in a folder. Put this folder in a compressed archive for submission. If it is possible to embed images in the source document, you should do so to avoid potential issues, such as missing graphics.

IMPORTANT: A DVI (DeVice Independent file) is required for LaTeX conversions, in addition to the associated image files. Make sure that your LaTeX system can output a DVI, otherwise it cannot be converted. Be sure also to check that your images are properly referenced, and that DVI can handle the image file types used (DVI does not handle some newer image types, such as *.png).
