ICIN 2024 Call For Papers

(Click here to download CFP in PDF format)

ICIN 2024 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE & IEEE Communications Society
All accepted and presented papers will be submitted for publication in IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Authors of selected papers accepted for publication at ICIN 2024  will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper  to IEEE Transactions on Network and Service Management (TNSM).

ICIN 2024 solicits original, unpublished work not currently under review by other conferences or journals. Papers submitted to ICIN 2024 will be assessed based on originality, technical soundness, clarity and interest to a wide audience. All submissions must be written in English and must use standard IEEE two-column conference template, available for download from the IEEE website: https://www.ieee.org/conferences/publishing/templates.html

Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process and all submissions must be done electronically through EDAS at: https://edas.info/N31119

Technical papers can be up to 8 pages (Full papers) and 5 pages (Short papers), including tables, figures and references.

At least one author is required to register, at the full rate, to present accepted papers at the conference and for the paper to appear in the conference proceedings.
