All IPSN contributions should be submitted as PDF
files and be formatted using IEEE
conference templates. The page size should be set to US Letter
Portrait (8-1/2x11 inches). Please do not change the margins sizes or
other options set within the IEEE templates. Authors of accepted
submissions will received detailed instructions to submit their final
versions in due time.
Regular paper submissions are at most 12 pages, including figures,
tables, and references. Challenges submissions are at most 6 pages.
Note that page limits are the MAXIMUM lengths. Paper qualities are not
judged by length.
Poster and demonstration abstracts should be submitted as PDF files and
be formatted using IEEE
Poster and demonstration abstracts are at most 2 pages, including
figures, tables, and references. Poster abstracts should follow the
same format but should include a thumbnail of the planned poster as a
third page. If a demonstration requires special arrangements, please
describe them clearly in your submission using a separate third page.
(This third page is not part of the technical content of the abstract
and can be formatted at discretion of the authors).
will be double blind; therefore, please do not include any author names
on any submitted documents except in the space provided on the
submission form. You must also ensure that the metadata included in the
PDF does not give away the authors. If you are improving upon your
prior work, refer to your prior work in the third person and include a
full citation for the work in the bibliography. For example, if you are
building on your own prior work in the papers [2, 3, 4], you would say
something like: "While the authors of [2, 3, 4] did X, Y, and Z, this
paper additionally does W, and is therefore much better." Do NOT omit
or anonymize references for blind review. There is one exception to
this for your own prior work that appeared in workshops without
archived proceedings, poster or demo abstracts, or tech reports that
are not peer reviewed. TPC will judge IPSN submissions assuming an
archived prior conference/workshop publication is an independent work
and focus on results beyond the previous publication.
SUBMISSIONS AND WORKSHOPS
By submitting a manuscript to IPSN'14, the authors guarantee that the
manuscript has not been previously published or accepted for
publication in a substantially similar form in any conference, journal,
or the archived proceedings of a workshop (e.g., in the ACM digital
library) -see exceptions below. The authors also guarantee that no
paper that contains significant overlap with the contributions of the
submitted paper will be under review for any other conference or
journal or an archived proceedings of a workshop during the IPSN'14
review period. To avoid potential confusion during the review process,
authors are welcome to send emails to the TPC chairs to clarify, such
as, "A related paper is under review at conference X. That paper uses
method Y but this paper focuses on method Z." Violation of any of these
conditions will lead to rejection. The only exceptions to the above
rules are for the author's own papers in (1) workshops without archived
proceedings such as in the ACM digital library (or where the authors
chose not to have their paper appear in the archived proceedings), or
(2) tech reports, notes, or blogs that are not peer reviewed. In all
such cases, the submitted manuscript may ignore the above work to
preserve author anonymity. This information must, however, be provided
on the submission form -the PC chair will make this information
available to reviewers if it becomes necessary to ensure a fair review.
(This policy will be explicitly conveyed to the reviewers.) As always,
if you are in doubt, it is best to contact the program chair. Finally,
we also note that the ACM Plagiarism Policy
(http://www.acm.org/publications/policies/plagiarism_policy) covers a
range of ethical issues concerning the misrepresentation of other works
or one's own work.
Papers that do not meet the size, formatting, and anonymization
requirements will not be reviewed.
All papers must be submitted through the conference submission
In the submission system, authors must enter ALL conflicts of interest
with members of the program committee and other collaborators.
The submission site provides a format checker that implements a set of
heuristics to check if your PDF is compliant with the formatting
instructions. If the checker complains about violations, please check
the formatting carefully. However, the checker may sometimes report
false positives, so its output should be taken as a hint, not as

anonymization and concurrent submission policies are adopted from
