Manuscript must include a 200-word abstract and be no more than 6 pages of IEEE double column text (including figures and references).
Research papers must not be published or under consideration for publication in a journal or in a conference with proceedings. Research papers will be evaluated based on originality, significance, technical soundness and clarify of exposition.
System papers should report on existing research prototypes by clearly identifying the original contributions and ideas demonstrated, and will be evaluated based on technical soundness, feasibility and applicability.
System papers must be accompanied by a separate demo description specifying the equipment and the type of installation that will be used. Authors of system papers must bring their own equipment for demo.
Depending upon the results of evaluation a paper may be accepted as regular paper (6 pages), short paper (4 pages) or poster (poster presentation only). In addition to paper presentation, system papers will also be included in demo sessions.
