Guidelines for Authors

To be published in the IEEE INFOCOM 2008 proceedings, all accepted papers must be prepared as indicated below, and the final camera-ready versions must be uploaded to the IEEE Conference eXpress site.

Critical: Failure to comply with all the requirements will lead to the removal of the paper from the technical program and the conference record.

It is important for all IEEE authors to recognize that plagiarism in any form, and at any level, is unacceptable and is considered a serious breach of professional conduct, with potentially severe ethical and legal consequences.

Revise your paper

Please revise your paper and address all issues raised in the provided reviews. The formatting requirements for the camera-ready version are available at:


When you complete the revision, please print out and proofread your paper. Remember that the maximum page length is 9 pages for papers in the main program and 5 pages for papers in the mini-conference. IEEE INFOCOM 2008 will not accept final versions that exceed these page limits. Any change in the title of the camera-ready version should be communicated to the INFOCOM TPC Chairs. The list of authors in the camera-ready paper must remain the same as in the originally submitted version.

Make all necessary visa arrangements

If you need a visa to enter the United States, make the visa arrangements in advance since the process might take a few months. Obtaining the visa is your responsibility. To receive a visa assistance letter from IEEE ComSoc, log in your EDAS account, go to the page for your paper, and then:
  1. Proceed toward the bottom of the page and find in the properties column an image of an envelope outlined in yellow; the envelope is located next to the words "visa letter".
  2. Click on the envelope.
  3. The system will allow you to confirm or change your address for the letter.
  4. When requested, the system will generate the letter for you.
If you have any problems, please click the help tab in EDAS.
