Paper Submission Guidelines

All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of six (6) printed pages (10-point font) including figures. Papers exceeding 6 pages will not be accepted at EDAS.

When preparing your manuscript, please pay also attention to the following:

  • If your paper has been prepared using Microsoft Word, please ensure that you have used the most current version which will help reduce word-to-pdf conversion issues such as embedded fonts, bookmarks, etc.
  • No page numbers and no headers/footers
  • Use non-zero PDF top and bottom margins (typically at least 0.5 inches/12.7 mm) to help indicate if there are any page numbers.

Papers upload via EDAS

Please contact the Publication Chairs at wcnc18publications@cttc.es if you have any questions about submitting your manuscripts.

Important Notices

Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE Communications society will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.

PLEASE NOTE: To be published in the IEEE WCNC 2018 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEEXplore®, 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. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. 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 WCNC 2018 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore® as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

To ensure appropriate consideration of conflicts of interest during the review process, changes to the list of authors once a paper has been submitted for review during review, revision, or (if accepted) ­final publication are not allowed. The author list may be changed only prior to the submission deadline.
