I. General

a. Each lecture style session room will be set with an LCD projector, a microphone and a laser pointer. Please bring your own laptop. Speaker rehearsal room with LCD projector will be available for presenters who wish to rehearse their presentations. (Check on-site program for exact location).

b. Each lecture style presentation is allocated 17 minutes. You should spend about 15 minutes for presentation of the problem, the background, the innovative approach, the new results and the comparative evaluation. An additional 2 minutes should be available for discussion with the attendees.

c. Sign the register to show that you presented your paper.

d. The presenter should prepare a reasonable number of illustrations - transparencies or a Power Point file, so as not to exceed the 15 minute time. Typically, one (1) illustration is presented in one to two minutes. Additional illustrations could be prepared to support possible answers to attendees' questions.

e. Each illustration should not be crowded by text and graphics. Too much text should be avoided: illustrations should support the presentation; they should not be simply read by the presenter. Graphics help in communications, are more understandable, and point out the basic ideas. Use large fonts so they can be read without a major effort; typically 18-20 point fonts should be used.

f. Presentation should be clearly structured. Begin with a title page. The index of the presentation should outline the presentation. The basic problem should be clearly stated, as well as the application area. Background and previous work should be summarized to provide a prospective for the results presented in the paper. The innovative approach should be clearly stated. The application of the approach to the application problem should be described, by pointing out the main features and characteristics, the problems and the solutions. The results should be clearly outlined and evaluated. Appropriate comparison with previous results should be presented. Conclusions should summarize the work performed and point out the main innovation and results. Future work and developments could also be sketched.


The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., 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 has engaged in either practice.

PLEASE NOTE: To be published in the IEEE GLOBECOM 2011 Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the FULL or LIMITED (member or non-member) rate and must present the paper at the conference. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one FULL or LIMITED registration is valid for up to 3 papers. Accepted papers will be published in the IEEE GLOBECOM 2011 Conference Proceedings. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE GLOBECOM 2011 Conference Proceedings and in IEEE Xplore®.


During the initial paper submission process via EDAS, the authors are required to make sure the pdf file and EDAS registration page of a paper have the same list of authors and the paper title, that is, please add all authors in EDAS during the submission process. Failure to comply with this rule, your paper may be withdrawn from the review process. On the other hand, the author list of an accepted paper can NOT be changed in the final manuscript.

All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of five (5) printed pages (10-point font) including figures without incurring additional page charges (maximum 1 additional page with overlength page charge if accepted). Note that the maximum number of pages for a paper is 6; 5 pages plus 1 additional page allowed with a charge for the one additional page of USD100 if accepted. Papers exceeding 6 pages will not be accepted at EDAS, nor reviewed at all.

Standard IEEE conference templates for LaTeX formats are found at here: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html
You can also use the sample template for Microsoft Word: A4, US letter.

There is no paper number limitations for Symposium Chairs and TPC Vice Chairs on Symposium to submit their papers via this track, as they have absolutely no influence on the review outcome. TPC Chairs are responsible to assure a high quality standard for the accepted papers in this independent track.
