    Early non-author registration:    June 30, 2008



Submitted manuscripts must be of length up to 6 pages unless the authors are willing to pay the over-length charges at the time of publication (manuscripts may NOT exceed 8 pages). The manuscripts must be submitted in standard IEEE camera-ready format (double-column, 10-pt font). Files should be submitted in PDF format and formatted for 8.5x11-inch paper. Submitted papers may NOT have appeared in, nor be under consideration for, another journal or conference. The Program Committee reserves the right to NOT review papers that either exceed the above length specification or have been submitted or published elsewhere. Submissions must include the title, abstract, keywords, author(s) and affiliation, e-mail address(es), fax/phone number(s), and postal address(es). In case of multiple authors, indicate which author is responsible for correspondence about the submission.

Papers should be submitted to one of the above tracks through the EDAS submission server. The direct link to submission is http://edas.info/newPaper.php?c=6067&. Please submit to the General Topics track if you are unable to choose any of the other tracks. The TPC chair and vice-chairs will assign the paper to the appropriate track.



All submitted papers will be reviewed and judged on originality, correctness, relevance, quality of presentation, and technical strength and significance. An accepted paper must be registered and presented by one of the authors at the conference venue and must be limited to 6 pages (with an allowance of up to two extra pages at a cost of US$150 per extra page beyond 6 pages) in standard IEEE camera-ready format.

Each FULL registration covers up to THREE papers by an author. 


ICCCN08 plans to award one best paper and authors of the paper will be recognized at the conference.



ICCCN08 features satellite workshops. Workshop proposals should be submitted to the workshops co-chairs, Prof. Xiaolin (Andy) Li at xiaolin@cs.okstate.edu or Prof. Yunhao Liu at liu@cs.ust.hk. The details of Call for Workshop Proposals can be found on the ICCCN08 Web site.
