To be published in the IWQoS 2017 Conference Proceedings (as well as the ACM Portal and IEEE Xplore), an author of an accepted full or short paper is required to register for IWQoS at the full (member or non-member) rate and must present the paper at the conference. Registrations that accompany papers to appear in the Proceedings of IWQoS 2017 must be submitted online on or before May 8th, 2017. Papers without full (non-student) registrations after May 8th, 2017 may be withdrawn from the conference Proceedings. Each full registration may only cover two research papers.

Step 1: (Important) Register to the Conference

Step 2: Formatting Instructions

Please format your final paper as a PDF file in the IEEE conference proceedings 8.5″x11″ two-column format (same as the submission format). Full papers can be up to 10 pages in 10pt fonts, short papers can be up to 6 pages in 10pt fonts, work-in-progress papers can be up to 5 pages in 10pt fonts, and poster papers can be up to 2 pages in 10pt fonts.

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. For IEEE, all papers submitted for publication must meet the IEEE standards. Access to PDF eXpress Plus, the IEEE’s online file conversion/PDF validation tool, will assist authors in preparing suitable electronic files of their final papers. PDF eXpress Plus helps authors convert their papers into IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF files (conversion function) or to check their own PDF files for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF validation function).
