Camera-Ready Submission

The 29th IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols (ICNP 2021)
Dallas, Texas, USA Virtual Event, November 1-5, 2021 

General Steps

Paper Formatting

The final version of papers, posters and demos should be in double-column format with standard margins and at least a 10 point font. The page limits are as follows:

Papers that exceed the page limit will not be accepted for publication. Papers should include a title and an abstract of fewer than 250 words.

All papers must be formatted for printing on US LETTER (8.5" by 11") and must adhere to the IEEE formatting requirements. For LaTeX users, please use the "conference" option. The template should be used as is. Papers that modify the template, e.g., by picking narrower line-spacing or margins than what the template defines, will be rejected for publication.

Papers must be submitted in PDF format, without including any non-standard fonts. We must be able to display and print your camera-ready manuscript exactly as we receive it and using only standard tools and postscript printers. Therefore, we strongly suggest that you use only standard fonts. Make sure that the paper, including the figures, is readable on a black-and-white printout. Also, make sure to embed all fonts, make your text searchable, and suppress all page numbers in your final paper PDF.

Author List, Paper Titles, and Presentation

The author list must remain the same as when the paper was submitted for review, and any changes in the author list or title is forbidden without prior written permission from the TPC Co-Chairs.

Every paper must be presented by an author at the conference. At least one author of an accepted paper is expected to register at the full rate of the conference and to present the paper at the conference, in order for the paper to appear in the conference proceedings and be submitted to the IEEE digital library. Please expect further information for registration.

Non-Presented Paper Policy ("No-Show Policy"): Each paper must be presented at the conference by an author of that paper, unless prior approval is obtained from the TPC Co-Chairs and General Chairs. Papers that are not presented by their authors may be removed from IEEE Xplore and be excluded from distribution after the conference.
