IEEE International Conference on Computer Communications
29 April - 2 May 2019 // Paris, France

CNERT: Computer and Networking Experimental Research using Testbeds - Submissions

Submission Guidelines

The workshop accepts only novel, previously unpublished papers which are not under review by any journal or conference. Accepted and presented research papers and extended abstracts will be published in the IEEE INFOCOM 2019 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®.  Accepted white papers for the “Experimenter’s Wishlist” will be published on the workshop webpage only. Full details of submission procedures and requirements for authors of accepted papers are available at

Overview of Submission Instructions:

  • Paper page limit
    • Full paper track: 6 pages + 1 optional page for demo description
    • Extended abstract track: 2 pages + 1 required page for demo description
    • Whitepaper track: 2 pages
  • Author information: Required. (The reviews will be single blind.)

Paper Instructions 

Papers must be written in English. Only electronic submissions will be accepted (see instructions below). Papers not meeting the exact guidelines detailed below will be returned to the authors.

Format and Length

Submitted papers must be no longer than the pages lengths described above, in double-column format with standard margins (i.e., at least one inch all around) and at least a 10 point font. This length includes everything: figures, tables, references, appendices and so forth. Longer submissions will not be reviewed. Papers should include a title; full list of authors, their organization and email address; and an abstract of fewer than 200 words. Accepted full papers and extended abstracts will be published in the INFOCOM proceedings (not including the 1 page demo description; i.e., 6 pages will be published for full papers, and 2 pages will be published for extended abstracts). Accepted white papers for the “Experimenter’s Wishlist” will be published on the workshop webpage only. 

All papers must adhere to IEEE formatting standards. Consult the IEEE Transactions LaTeX and Microsoft Word Style Files. Papers must be submitted in PDF (Portable Document Format) and compatible with Acrobat (English version), not including any special characters or non-standard fonts. We must be able to display and print your submission exactly as we receive it and using only standard tools and postscript printers, so we strongly suggest that you use only standard fonts. Make sure that the paper prints well on black-and-white printers, not color printers. This is especially true for plots and graphs in the paper.

Papers should be formatted for printing on US LETTER (8.5" by 11") size paper.

Dual Submissions 

Once submitted to CNERT, a paper cannot be submitted to another workshop, conference or journal until the CNERT acceptance decision is known. Similarly, a paper that is under consideration elsewhere, including a workshop or journal, cannot simultaneously be submitted to CNERT. If some of the material in a submission has appeared in a workshop, the paper should so indicate. This is only acceptable if the paper submitted to CNERT provides substantial additional results compared to the earlier or pending publication.

Electronic Submission

All submissions are handled through the EDAS link:

Registration and Presentation

At least one of the authors of each paper presented at the conference must be registered in a non-student category. Additionally, each paper has to be presented at the conference in order for the paper to be published in the conference proceedings and submitted for inclusion in the IEEE digital library.
