Submission

Submission to the workshop is through the EDAS Conference Management System.

In order to submit, you must first create an EDAS account if you do not already have one. The EDAS system will e-mail you your password, and then you can login to EDAS using the password you have received by email. EDAS will provide you with a submissions homepage where you can register your paper submission and make appropriate changes.

High-quality full papers which at the time of submission, are not under review and have not already been published or accepted for publication elsewhere are solicited. The first page should include the paper's title, the abstract, the authors' full names, affiliations, and e-mail addresses.

Submissions can be made through EDAS at http://edas.info/N19719

Papers should contain original material and not be previously published, or currently submitted for consideration elsewhere, and should strict follow these submission guidelines:

All the sumbissions must be in PDF format, and must be formatted according to the standard IEEE Computer Society 8.5" x 11" page, two-column format. The IEEE LaTeX and Microsoft Word templates, as well as related information, can be found at the IEEE Computer Society website.
The page limit is six (6) pages, including text, figures, references, and appendices. Paper longer than 6 pages will not be considered for peer review. The font size used in the text of the submission must not be smaller than 10 points.
PDF files must have version 1.4 or higher and must embed all the fonts. Authors are allowed to use colors for text/figures in their submission, but they must be sure that the paper prints clearly on standard black-and-white printers.

At least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the workshop at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chairs grant permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions.  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 Fog Networking for 5G and IoT Proceedings and will be submitted to IEEE Xplore®.

IMPORTANT DATES
Submission deadline (Hard): April 1st, 2015
Notification of acceptance: April 15th, 2015

Workshop: June 22nd, 2015

In order for your paper to be in the conference proceedings and IEEE Xplore you need to complete these five steps:
2. Check your paper with IEEE PDF eXpress
3. Register for the workshop with payment

Please read the reviews of your paper and follow the reviewers' recommendations for revising it and preparing the final version. When you are done with the revision, please print out your paper and carefully proof read it. The final manuscript must NOT contain page numbers.

The manuscript template can be found at http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html.

Note that for camera-ready papers should not exceed 6 pages.

Note that you will also need to add a Copyright Clearance Code Notice—this notice is to appear on the bottom of the first page of each paper. (This is separate from step 4, which details how to submit the Copyright Form). Detailed instructions can be found at:http://www.ieee.org/portal/pages/about/documentation/copyright/cfrmlink.html
• For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright
• For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: 978-1-4673-7392-0/15/$31.00 ©2015 Crown • For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 978-1-4673-7392-0/15/$31.00 ©2015 European Union
• For all other papers the copyright notice is: 978-1-4673-7392-0/15/$31.00 ©2015 IEEE Latex users can add following lines just before \begin{document} for the copyright notice to show up (shown below as an example for the third case above): \IEEEoverridecommandlockouts \IEEEpubid{\makebox[\columnwidth]{978-1-4673-7392-0/15/\$31.00~\copyright~2015 IEEE \hfill}
\hspace{\columnsep}\makebox[\columnwidth]{ }}

MSWord users can use: ‘Insert’ -> ‘Text box’, insert the appropriate copyright notice in the texbox, and place the box (without border) at the bottom left on the first page.

2. Check your paper with IEEE PDF eXpress

IEEE PDF eXpress has been made available (http://www.pdf-express.org) for checking the IEEE Xplore compatibility of PDF files and provide assistance to authors to correct problems with their files. Instructions for IEEE PDF eXpress for IEEE SECON 2014 can be found at http://www.pdf-express.org/frhelp.asp.

The conference ID for IEEE PDF eXpress is "36188X". Note that the workshop proceedings will be separate from the main conference proceedings.

IEEE is very strict about the requirements for converting application files or PostScript files to full-text PDF for inclusion in IEEE Xplore. The new IEEE Xplore Requirements for PDF will be enforced. All conference articles submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore must be in Xplore-compatible PDF format. IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).

It is important to note that submitting a file to IEEE PDF eXpress is only for creation of a compliant PDF file, you must still submit your final paper through EDAS.

Then, for the IEEE copyright upload, append “15SEC” to your registration number—i.e., you will now get a code that is 16 digits long, ending in 15SEC. You should be able to complete the IEEE copyright form using this code.

3. Register for the workshop

In order to upload your paper you must first register for the workshop (please follow the link: http://secon2015.ieee-secon.org/registration. On registering for the workshop, you will get a “confirmation number”. To subsequently upload your camera-ready paper, you will need a Registration Code which is 11 digits long. Registration deadline is April 30.

IEEE and IEEE Communications Society Policies
All IEEE SECON 2015 workshop technical papers must be associated with a workshop registration. For authors presenting multiple workshop papers, one workshop registration is valid for up to three papers. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the workshop (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the workshop.
