Experience Papers

In addition to research papers, COMSNETS is also interested in experience papers that present the details and insights from real-life testbeds and/or large scale experimental platforms around the research topics mentioned above. Such papers should provide detailed insights into (1) building the testbeds/platforms, (2) lessons that are impractical in a research setup, and (3) implications for further research in the relevant domain. Experience papers shall follow the same submission process as the research papers with an “Experience:” prefix in the title.

Papers submitted to the main conference should be prepared in standard IEEE conference format and should contain no more than eight pages of technical content, plus one page of references. We will follow a singleblind review policy. Please check the conference website for more details.

Selected best papers from COMSNETS 2022 will be invited for submission of their significant extended versions in a special issue of Elsevier's Ad Hoc Networks journal (2019 I.F. 3.643).

COMSNETS provides generous travel grants to International student applicants who have an accepted paper in the conference. Please see the home page for details.
