In addition to full-length regular papers, the IEEE ScalCom 2018 welcomes Work-in-Progress (WiP) papers showing innovative and original research in the areas of smart world. Submissions from both industry and academia are strongly encouraged.
WiP papers are expected to report on early or ongoing research activities. The WiP session will provide a forum to discuss novel ideas and emerging results, presenting innovative applications and tools, and bring about novel research questions, approaches, and directions.
WiP papers may be no more than 6 pages in length, or at most 2 additional pages with the pages overlength charge, including figures, tables, and references.
WiP papers are expected to present early or ongoing research activities. Novel approaches and preliminary results are especially appreciated.
The submitted manuscripts will be reviewed by members of the ScalCom 2018 Technical Program Committee. All selected papers will be orally presented in a special conference session. At least one author of each accepted paper must register and attend the conference to present the work. The accepted papers will be published in the conference proceedings by IEEE, and will be included in the Digital Library in IEEE Xplore.
Authors are requested to submit original, unpublished manuscripts in standard IEEE proceedings format in PDF. All submissions must be typeset in double-column IEEE format using 10pt fonts on US letter paper, with all fonts embedded. Submitted papers must include the contact information of all the authors. Please make sure you use the latest version of the templates to prepare your submissions. Due to the short interval between the notification of acceptance and the camera-ready deadline, we strongly encourage authors to follow the camera-ready formatting guidelines as close as possible.

Submissions must be made via EasyChair:
When submitting, please select the appropriate Track for your paper (i.e., WiP).
