abstract and be no more than 6 pages of IEEE double column text (including figures and 

Research papers must not be published or under consideration for publication in a journal 
or in a conference with proceedings. Research papers will be evaluated based on 
originality, significance, technical soundness and clarify of exposition.

System papers should report on existing research prototypes by clearly identifying the 
original contributions and ideas demonstrated, and will be evaluated based on technical 
soundness, feasibility and applicability.

System papers must be accompanied by a separate demo description specifying the 
equipment and the type of installation that will be used. Authors of system papers must 
bring their own equipment for demo.

Depending upon the results of evaluation a paper may be accepted as regular paper (6 
pages), short paper (4 pages) or poster (poster presentation only). In addition to paper 
presentation, system papers will also be included in demo sessions.
