Final Paper Submission to WCNC 2012

Workshops Authors Click Here

Final versions of accepted papers must be submitted on EDAS for inclusion in the conference CD-ROM and IEEE Xplore®. Before submission on EDAS, each paper must have at least one Full or Limited Registration even if the presenting author is a student. For multiple paper presentations, one author registration is valid for up to three papers. The WCNC 2012 Executive Committee reserves the right not to include in IEEE Xplore® the papers that are not actually presented by one of the co-authors at the conference.

Due to the limited number of rooms at the Convention Center, a significant portion of the accepted papers will be presented as posters. The WCNC 2012 Technical Program Committee will decide which papers will be presented in oral (lecture type) sessions and which papers as posters, and the decisions will be announced to the authors shortly. Choice between oral and poster presentations will be totally independent of the review scores and of the paper quality.
