WONS 2016 12thWireless On-demand Network systems and Services Conference 20 - 22 January 2016, Cortina d'Ampezzo, Italy

Preparing Your Presentation


If you were invited to present your paper at WONS 2016, particularly if you haven't been to WONS yet, please read the following information on presentation guidelines. There are two categories of papers: long papers (up to 8 pages) and short papers (up to 4 pages).

  • Long papers are presented orally only, in sessions S1 through S6 and in the Community Networks and Services session of WONS 2016. Please refer to our website to find your session and the session's presentation order. Each paper is allocated a time slot of 30 minutes. Note that the time slot includes time for all of setting up, oral presentation, and time for questions. Session chairs are under strict instructions to allow no speaker to overrun his/her time slot. We thus recommend to plan for no more than 20 minutes, else you might run the risk of not being able to engage the audience during Q&A -- or even of having to stop midway through your talk. Please find your session chair no later than 15 minutes before the start of your session to 1) confirm your presentation will be taking place and to 2) arrange for an opportunity to try check compatibility of your equipment (ideally, a computer with VGA video output) to the facilities of WONS. You might also want to coordinate with the session chair how you would like to be introduced.

  • Short papers are presented in the form of one poster each, exhibited during a shared poster session. Please set up your poster during the first afternoon coffee break, so we can smoothly transition into the poster session. We will supply you with a "DIN A0" size poster stand and thumb tacks or adhesive tape for mounting.

Camera Ready Instructions


UPDATE: Once you have uploaded your final manuscript to PDF eXpress and have clicked on Approve for Collection, no furhter action is required. Papers will be retrieved by the committee from PDF eXpress.

Prior to submitting your camera ready paper please carefully read the following checklist:
  • Study the reviews and incorporate the recommended changes into the camera-ready version of your paper. Moreover, make sure you fix typos and grammar mistakes.
  • Check that data in EasyChair matches exactly that in the paper (title, list of authors, abstract), as this information will go in the final proceedings and will be used for indexing.
  • The text in your PDF must be searchable, meaning that you should be able to copy-paste the text from any PDF viewer.
  • All your fonts must be embedded.
  • Your document must have no headers, no footers, and no page numbers.
  • The PDF must use the standard IEEE 2-column format with 10-point font. The mandatory IEEE template in Microsoft Word and LaTeX format can be found at the IEEE templates page.
To have an idea about how your paper should look like, take a look at this sample PDF. If your paper is similar to the sample in terms of fonts, margins, etc., your PDF should be fine. Once you complete the checklist, you need to validate your PDF using the IEEE PDF eXpress online tool. To do so, login into the PDF eXpress Plus website. If it is the first time you use this tool, you should:
  1. Click on New Users - Click Here
  2. Enter 37260XP for Conference ID, enter your email address, and choose a password
  3. Enter the remaining required information to create the account
If you already have an account, instead, use the email and the password you registered with and 37260XP as the Conference ID.

Once you are logged in, follow the instructions to upload your camera ready. PDF eXpress will check your paper and will inform you about the outcome via email. If the paper is Xplore compliant, you will need to go log in again into PDF eXpress and click on Approve for Collection. Otherwise, you will need to fix the PDF and re-upload it to PDF eXpress.

If you have any doubts regarding final formatting, please contact us well ahead of the camera-ready deadline. Due to the tight publication timeline, we cannot accommodate any paper for which we have not received a fully compliant camera ready version by the camera-ready deadline. No extensions can be granted. This deadline is
4 December 2015 23:59 PST.

Note also that to be published in the WONS 2016 conference proceedings, at least one author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference and must present the paper at the conference (unless the TPC Chairs grant permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and this person 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. Each author can register an additional paper (max one) for 200 €.
