All ICNC papers are presented in the conference in
lecture style presentation. The
authors acknowledge that accepted papers need to be presented in person at the
conference by one of the authors of the paper. Papers that are not presented
(for any reason, including visa issues, travel problems, etc.) may be removed
from IEEE Xplore.
a. Each lecture style session room will be set with an LCD projector. Please
bring your own laptop.
b. Each lecture style presentation is allocated 20 minutes. You should spend
about 18 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. The presenter should prepare a reasonable number of illustrations -
transparencies or a Power Point file, so as not to exceed the 18 minute time.
Typically, one (1) illustration is presented in one to two minutes. Additional
illustrations could be prepared to support possible answers to attendees'
d. 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.
e. 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.
Papers are required to be submitted via EDAS Paper Processing System:
http://edas.info/N14495; authors have to
determine which symposium to submit the paper to. More description on each
symposium of ICNC 2014 can be found at the webpage:
http://www.conf-icnc.org/2014/cfp.htm, and the authors can also submit paper there via the direct
weblink to EDAS paper submission page. Any questions
regarding to the paper submissions can be addressed to the TPC Chair, Dr.
Guan-Ming Su at guanmingsu AT ieee DOT org.
It is required that the manuscript follows the standard IEEE camera-ready
format (double column, 10-pt font) as well as the requirement set by EDAS paper
submission system. The maximum length of ICNC paper without over-length charge
is FIVE (5) page. The authors are allowed to pay for
up to TWO (2) additional pages at $150 per over length page. Submitted papers
may not have been previously published in or under consideration for
publication in another journal of conference. The organizing committee of ICNC
reserves the right to not review papers that either exceed the length
specification or have been submitted or published elsewhere. Submissions must
include title, abstract, keywords, author and affiliation with email
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.
Be certain to add all authors in EDAS during the initial paper submission
process. Failure to comply with this rule may cause a paper be withdrawn from
the review process. Once reviewed the listing of authors connected to the paper
can NOT be changed in the final manuscript.
All accepted papers of ICNC (main program and workshops),
after being presented onsite at the conference, will be included in the
proceedings to be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore and indexing by EI
