Unclassified Technical Papers  


The unclassified technical program provides a venue for paper presentations that do not contain classified, export-controlled (e.g. ITAR), or otherwise restricted (e.g. FOUO) information. (Manuscripts with such restrictions may be submitted to the Restricted Access Technical Program.) 

The MILCOM 2017 Call for Papers (CFP) features five technical tracks with various topic of interests in each. Prospective authors are invited to submit original papers to the conference technical tracks by the deadline. Accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore and the MILCOM 2017 Conference Proceedings.
 
Important Dates:

Draft Papers Due: April 3, 2017
Paper Acceptance Notification: June 5, 2017
Final Papers Due: July 17, 2017
Presentations Due: September 20, 2017
 
 
Submit your manuscript to the tracks in the Unclassified Technical Program via EDAS using the links below:

  • TRACK 1 – Waveforms and Signal Processing 
  • TRACK 2 – Networking Protocols and Performance 
  • TRACK 3 – Cyber Security and Trusted Computing 
  • TRACK 4 – System Perspectives 
  • TRACK 5 – Selected Topics in Communications 

 
Please Note:

  • All submissions should be written in English with draft papers up to six (6) printed pages in length, two-column, single-spaced with 10-point font on US Letter paper.
  • Final papers that exceed six (6) pages will be assessed a per-page over-length charge of $350/page, up to a maximum of ten (10) total pages. Standard IEEE Transactions template for Microsoft Word and LaTeX formats can be found at http://www.ieee.org/publications_standards/publications/authors/authors_journals.html  and follow the guidelines for ComSoc publications (follow the Article Template link).
  • EDAS requires an abstract to get underway.  The MILCOM Technical Team suggests using the same abstract that your draft paper will have (required by the template). 
  • A  draft paper must be submitted for consideration prior to the final closing dates on www.milcom.org under the “Call for Papers”.  The abstract length generally runs from 200-500 words as a general rule (the template has an example). 
  • The papers follow IEEE policy and will have at least three qualified blind reviewers and will be judged against other submitted papers for applicability, etc.


IEEE COMSOC Policy: 

To be published in the IEEE GLOBECOM 2016 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore, an author of each accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the FULL DAY non-student rate, and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the workshops unless the TPC Chair grant permission for a substitute presenter in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions 

PRESENTER SUBSTITUTION POLICY: If no co-author is available to present the paper at the conference, the TPC Chair can grant permission in some extreme cases to have the paper presented by a qualified substitute presenter. If you need to make such a request, please fill out a Substitute Presenter Form no later than Monday, 28 November 2016. A copy of the form goes directly to the TPC Chair for approval. 

REGISTRATION TRANSFER POLICY: All requests for registration transfers must be submitted to globecomreg@ieee.org and received by Monday, 28 November 2016 After the 28 November, there will be a US $100 transfer fee imposed and possible additional fees depending upon the new registrant's membership status.
 
 
Publication Criteria:

  • To be published in the IEEE MILCOM 2017 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at a full conference rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference.
  • 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 MILCOM 2017 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore® as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.

 
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 IEEE will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.
