Paper Submission

Manuscript Submission

Only PDF files will be accepted for the review process, and all submissions must be done through EDAS.

All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of six (6) printed pages (minimum 10-point font) including figures, without incurring additional page charges. Two (2) additional pages are allowed with a charge of EUR 100 per page, if accepted. Papers exceeding 8 pages will not be accepted at EDAS, nor will they be reviewed at all.

Submissions must follow standard IEEE conference templates:

During the initial paper submission process via EDAS, it is the authors’ responsibility to ensure that the author list and the paper title of the submitted PDF file is an exact match to the author list and paper title on the EDAS registration page. In particular, the EDAS registration page must include all co-authors, not just the submitting author. Failure to comply with this rule might result in your paper being withdrawn from the review process. Please be aware that the author list of an accepted paper can NOT be changed in the final manuscript.

NOC 2016 fully supports and will enforce the following:


Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conferences/workshops/symposia at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE Communications society will take action against any author who engages in either practice. Follow these links to learn more:

PLEASE NOTE: To be published in the Proceedings of NOC 2016 and IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference and MUST present the paper at the conference. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the Proceedings of the 21st European Conference on Networks and Optical Communications, NOC 2016 and submitted to IEEE Xplore®.

The IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (including its removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.
