Authors

Author &  Submission guideline

Prospective authors are invited to submit original  full technical or fast-track papers for publication in the IEEE NFV-SDN 2017 Conference Proceedings and for presentation in the technical sessions.  We solicit submission of high-quality papers reporting original and novel research results on all topics. Papers must be written in English, unpublished and not submitted elsewhere. All papers must be formatted as the standard IEEE double-column conference template.

Full Technical Paper

Final Full Technical Paper 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 USD100 if accepted). Papers exceeding 7 pages will not be accepted at EDAS.  Submissions should be uploaded on http://edas.info/

Fast-Track Papers

In addition to the instructions above, we welcome fast-track papers from the research community up to four (4) pages in length (10-point font), including figures, without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with over length page charge of USD100 if accepted).

Fast-track papers should focus more on recent and newly-developing results. They will be reviewed with a more open mind towards the scope of evaluation or breadth of topics compared to longer papers. We recommend that authors check both calls/types of papers before submitting. Submissions should be uploaded on http://edas.info/ 

Workshop Papers

Prospective authors are invited to submit original workshop papers for publication in the IEEE NFV-SDN 2017 Conference Proceedings and for presentation in the technical sessions. We solicit submission of high-quality papers reporting original and novel research results on the conference topics. Papers must be written in English, un- published and not submitted elsewhere. They must be formatted as the standard IEEE double-column conference template.

Workshop papers may be up to four (4) pages in length (10pt font); max. one additional page with over length page charge of USD100 if accepted.

General Requirements

To be published in the IEEE NFV-SDN 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 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 2017 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 Xplore) 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.
