Final Paper Submission Instructions [Main Conference]

Guidelines for Final Paper Submission for Technical Papers in the Main Conference ONLY


Final Paper Submission to IEEE INFOCOM 2021

Final versions of accepted papers must be uploaded to EDAS for inclusion in the conference proceedings and to be submitted to IEEE Xplore®. The deadline is 5:00pm US ET, Friday, 15 January 2021.


IEEE/IEEE Communications Society/IEEE INFOCOM Policies

To ensure appropriate consideration of conflicts of interest during the review process, the ComSoc prohibits changes to the list of authors once a paper has been submitted for review during review, revision, or (if accepted) final publication. The author list may be changed only prior to the submission deadline.

To be published in the IEEE INFOCOM 2021 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference. Non-refundable registration fees must be paid prior to uploading the final IEEE formatted, publication-ready version of the paper.  For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full registration is valid for up to 3 main conference papers.  Accepted and presented papers will be submitted to IEEE Xplore®.


Revise your Paper

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 proofread it. Review formatting requirements can be found at:


IEEE PDF eXpress

Use IEEE PDF eXpress to check if your paper is Xplore compatible. 

PDF eXpress instructions: The PDF eXpress website can be found at The conference ID for INFOCOM 2021 is 42981x.


Register for the Conference

Each accepted paper must be accompanied with a full conference registration fee (member or non-member). For authors of multiple papers, one full registration can cover up to three papers of the registrant in the same category (e.g., three main conference papers, or three workshop papers). 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 IEEE INFOCOM 2021 conference proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore.

For conference registration, please go to the Registration page of the IEEE INFOCOM 2021 website and follow the instructions.   After completing your registration, you will receive an email with your registration confirmation number.  Write this number down. When uploading your paper to EDAS, you need to enter  the registration code  = "INF" + confirmation number.


Submit your Paper

Your final paper must be submitted no later than 5:00pm US ET, Friday, 15 January 2021 in order to be included in the conference proceedings. The maximum number of pages is ten (10). Main text (including figures, tables, appendices, and any material other than references) must be no more than 9 pages.

To submit your Final paper, please go to EDAS, click on the “My Papers” button, and then upload your paper on the link provided. DO NOT go to Papers/Submit paper, since you will not find IEEE INFOCOM 2021 there. The author list in the PDF file should exactly conform with that in EDAS; otherwise, the paper will be removed from the program. If you experience any problems during the upload process of your paper on EDAS, please contact


IEEE Copyright Form

Before you upload your camera-ready paper, you will need to submit your IEEE copyright form using the IEEE electronic copyright mechanism. Please follow the link provided on the paper submission page.
