IEEE Policy on No Show / Non Presented Papers

“IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.”

Papers excluded from further distribution will be archived at IEEE but will not be indexed or appear in IEEE Xplore.

Change of Presenters and Presentation

Authors of a paper must specify the presenter (one or more of them) as early as possible by the May 12 deadline. Once designated, the presenter cannot be changed without the prior approval of the program chairs. A request of change of presenter must be submitted by authors in due time so that proper approvals can be obtained. The presenter is expected to present in person based on final program schedule. Any changes must be cleared with the program chairs first. No request for change of presenter will be considered once the draft program is made. Failure to do so, the paper will be treated as a no-show.

IEEE ComSoc Board of Governors Policy on Pre-publication Author Misconduct on Double-submission and Plagiarism

"In addition to the IEEE policies, pre-publication author misconduct, such as double-submission or plagiarism, will result in rejection of the manuscript(s), and a minimum 6 month ban on submissions to fully owned ComSoc publications by the author(s)."
