Submission Guidelines

Overview of Submission Instructions

All submitted papers must:
  • have a title and abstract of no more than 200 words;
  • have the names and affiliations of authors removed;
  • have no more than 10 pages (including everything) with at least 10 point font and adhere to the IEEE formatting requirements (for LaTeX, use conference option);
  • be submitted using the official ICNP 2013 submission page.
See below for more details.

Format and Length

Submitted papers must be written in English and have no more than ten (10) pages in double-column format with standard margins 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 and an abstract of fewer than 200 words.

All papers must be formatted for printing on US LETTER (8.5" by 11") size paper and must adhere to the 
IEEE formatting requirements (for LaTeX, use conference option). Papers must be submitted in PDF (Portable Document Format) and be 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.


ICNP 2013 will use a double-blind review process. The identity of authors and referees will not be revealed to each other. To ensure blind reviewing, author names and affiliations should not appear in the paper; bibliographic references should be made in such a way as to preserve author anonymity.

Dual Submissions

Once submitted to ICNP, a paper cannot be submitted to another workshop, conference or journal until the ICNP acceptance decision is known. To do so is to risk wasting one of our community's scarcest resources: reviewer effort. Similarly, a paper that is under consideration elsewhere, including a workshop or journal, cannot simultaneously be submitted to ICNP. It is acceptable if some of the material in a submission appeared in a workshop only if the paper submitted to ICNP provides substantial additional results compared to the earlier or pending publication.


All papers must be submitted using the ICNP 2013 submission page. To begin the process, take the following steps:
  • Go to the submission site.
  • Login to your account. If you do not already have an account, please create one.
  • Register the paper by providing a title, an abstract (up to 200 words) and all author details. Please ensure all names, addresses and email details are correctly entered. This step has to be completed by the abstract submission deadline.
  • Upload the PDF manuscript with author names removed. Once uploaded, you can visit your manuscript details at any time to view progress and make changes.

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 appear in the IEEE digital library.
