Standards play a key role in the success of the communications industry, as enablers of global systems inter-operability. IEEE CSCN aims for closing the gap between researchers, scientists and standards experts from academia, industry and different standardization bodies. It will serve as a platform for presenting and discussing standards-related topics in the areas of communications, networking and related disciplines, facilitating standards development as well as cooperation among the key players. IEEE CSCN will deliver high quality technical as well as visionary papers, which will be reviewed and selected by an international technical program committee (TPC) representing both academia and industry, with a strong standardization background.
Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE CSCN Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore® as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases. The conference’s best papers will be recommended for publication at the IEEE Communications Magazine’s supplement on Communications Standards and also the IEEE Journal on IoT.
IEEE CSCN will also include several panel sessions and keynotes focusing on the broad issue impacting standards directions in the telecommunications sector. Tutorials on topics of critical interest across multiple SDOs will be also considered. IEEE CSCN will also accommodate special industry sessions, allowing companies to explain their latest offering that embodies some specific new standards.
IEEE CSCN 2017 will take place in Helsinki, Finland on Monday, September 18, 2017 to Thursday, September 21, 2017. It will be collocated with the IEEE 5G-IoT Summit of Helsinki , together forming the Helsinki5GWeek.
All submissions have to comply with IEEE’s guidelines. Initial submissions for review are limited to seven (7) pages. Camera-ready papers should not exceed six (6) pages including figures without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with over length page charge). Papers must be written using the IEEE conference proceedings style format (two-column and 10-point font). Information on IEEE style formats and available templates can be found here.
Only timely submissions through EDAS will be accepted for review. You can submit your paper here.
To be published in the IEEE CSCN 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 the full (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 three papers.
Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE CSCN Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore® as well as other Abstracting and Indexing (A&I) databases.
