(1) TECHNICAL PAPERS: Authors must submit their papers using EDAS on or before Thursday, April 20, 2017 (EDAS link: https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=23475). All papers will be reviewed for technical content and scope by the technical program committee. 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.
The page limits are SIX (6) pages for the long paper track and THREE (3) pages for the short paper track. Papers should be in PDF format, two columns, font size 10 or greater and compliant with other IEEE Sarnoff Symposium manuscript guidelines. The guidelines can be found from the conference website.
Submitted papers must be unpublished and not currently under review for any other publication. Authors of accepted papers must sign an IEEE copyright release form and also present their paper at the conference to be included in IEEE Xplore.
(2) TUTORIALS: Proposals are solicited from domain experts to cover current topics directly relevant to the conference such as those listed above in the call for papers. Proposals must provide an in-depth survey of a chosen topic with the option of describing a particular piece of work in detail and a meaningful summary of open issues in the topic. Proposed tutorials should be comprehensive, informative, and appealing to the 2017 Sarnoff Symposium attendees.
Each tutorial will be for 3.5 hours with a half-hour break. Tutorial instructors must make a commitment to prepare the tutorial materials (e.g., slides) reflecting high quality standards. All tutorials will be featured prominently in the conference program.
Each tutorial proposal should have: (i) A 1-page abstract that includes: Title of the tutorial, Name and affiliation and a short biography of the instructor(s), Description of the tutorial scope, Intended audience; and (ii) A description at most 2 pages long that includes: Main topics (preferably with some description) to be covered during the tutorial; if relevant, a description of real-world systems, experiences and/or case studies, details of the new knowledge/perspectives gained by the audience attending the tutorial.
Tutorial proposals should be directly EMAILED to the Tutorial Chair (see organizing committee information below).
(3) PANELS: Proposals are solicited from domain experts to cover current topics directly relevant to the conference such as (but not limited to): emerging networking domains, vertical networking applications, ecosystems for enterprise, datacenter and mobile networks. Panel proposals should contain the Panel Title, Scope, Lead Panelist and a list of 3-4 Panel Members; proposals should be directly EMAILED to the Panels Chair (see organizing committee information below).
(4) POSTER FORUM: A 2-page extended abstract describing the research work (preferably work-in-progress and/or planned) must be submitted. The abstracts are to be submitted in EDAS (https://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=23475 , choose Poster track).
(5) EXHIBIT/DEMOS: IEEE SARNOFF SYMPOSIUM 2017 will include exhibit/demonstration sessions that shall provide a forum to present and discuss: industry/academia demonstrations of new products, applications and techniques, and practical implementations; industrial and commercial developments, research testbeds and implementations. A 3-page extended abstract describing the main contributions of the exhibits/demo and the merits of the proposed ideas must be submitted. Demonstration submissions should include the space, power, network connectivity requirements and/or any other equipment-specific requirements. The documents must contain the authors' names, affiliations, contact information and the designated corresponding author. Proposals will be evaluated mainly based on their potential to stimulate interesting discussions, exchange of ideas and promote collaborations. The proposal must be directly EMAILED to the Exhibit/Demo Co-Chair (see organizing committee information below.)
IEEE and IEEE Communications Society Policies:
All IEEE SARNOFF SYMPOSIUM technical papers must be associated with an author registration at the FULL rate. For authors presenting multiple papers, one FULL registration is valid for up to three papers.
