2016 IEEE Conference on Network Function Virtualization and Software Defined Networks
7-9 November 2016 // Palo Alto, California, USA

Submission Guidelines

Prospective authors are invited to submit original technical papers for publication in the IEEE NFV-SDN 2016 Conference Proceedings and for presentation in the technical sessions. We solicit submission of high-quality full papers reporting original and novel research results on topics listed here.

 

Papers must be written in English, unpublished and not submitted elsewhere. Full papers must be formatted as the standard IEEE double-column conference template All final submissions should have a maximum paper length of six (6) printed pages (10-point font), including figures, without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with over length page charge of USD 100 if accepted). Papers exceeding 7 pages will not be accepted at EDAS. Submissions should be uploaded on http://edas.info/N22175.

To be published in the IEEE NFV-SDN 2016 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. 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 NFV-SDN 2016 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®.

The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Explore) if the paper is not presented at the conference. 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 the IEEE Communications Society will take action against any author who engages in either practice.
