Papers Submission for Review

WiMob 2017 is using the EDAS Conference Management System to manage the paper submission process.

EDAS submission site is open since February 1, 2017.

High-quality full papers which at the time of submission, are not under review and have not already been published or accepted for publication elsewhere are solicited. The first page should include the paper's title, the abstract, a list of keywords indicating the paper's topic area(s), the authors' full names, affiliations, and e-mail addresses.

Papers should be written in English conforming to the IEEE standard conference format (8.5" x 11" - US letter, Two-Column).

Please use either Word or LaTex templates and instructions provided by IEEE .

Manuscripts submitted for review should be no more than 8 pages, double column, IEEE style including tables, figures and references.

For EDAS Submissions, please click here.

All accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings, and will be submitted for inclusion in IEEE Digital Xplore. Authors are required to submit fully formatted papers (PDF), with graphs, images, and other special areas arranged as intended for the final publication.

The final manuscript for publication will be limited to 8 IEEE pages (Maximum of two (2) additional pages can be purchased for US$100 / €81 each. Each paper cannot exceed 10 pages).

At least one of the authors of each accepted paper has to register at the regular rate (non-student). Each registration will cover one accepted paper. IEEE WiMob Executive Committee reserves the right not to include in IEEE Xxplore the papers that are not presented at the conference.

Final Manuscripts - IEEE PDF eXpress

WiMob 2017 has registered to use the the IEEE tool: IEEE PDF eXpress.

According to the new IEEE Xplore Requirements for PDF, all conference articles submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore must adhere to the IEEE Xplore PDF specification for compatibility.

IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).

It is important to note that submitting a file to IEEE PDF eXpress is only for creation of a compliant PDF file, you must still submit your final paper through the EDAS online submission system.
