Submission Instructions

The 5th IEEE World Forum on Internet of Things (WF-IoT 2019) solicits full paper technical paper submissions describing original research. Suggested size is four pages; papers up to six pages will be accepted. Extended versions of selected papers may be considered for publication in the IEEE IoT Journal.

How to Submit

All papers must be submitted in PDF and US letter format. Submitted papers must conform to the IEEE formatting guidelines as specified in these Word and LaTeX templates.

For all topics that have been identified in the descriptions above, please use the following EDAS links to submit a paper:

Horizontal IoT Enabling Technologies and Topics

IoT Application and Services for the Verticals

NOTE: Papers that do not address any of the above topics must be submitted electronically to this EDAS link.

Peer Review Process

All submitted technical papers will be peer reviewed by an international Technical Program Committee (TPC). If the paper is accepted and presented, it will be included in the conference proceedings and be submitted to the Xplore Digital Library. IEEE takes the protection of intellectual property very seriously. All submissions will be screened for plagiarism using CrossCheck.  All submitted papers are subject to the IEEE ComSoc Plagiarism Policy.

Oral vs. Poster Presentations

Prospective authors will be given the choice to submit with a preference for oral or poster presentation or either. The TPC will respect the author’s choice as much as possible when building a coherent program. Authors will respect the TPCs decision regarding presentation format. All technical session paper submissions must comply with the templates defined above, whether they are oral or poster presentations or either mode. 

Poster Presentation Instructions

The Poster Sessions are all designated to run on Wednesday, 17 April and Thursday, 18 April

ALL posters should be placed in the appropriate spot on the appropriate conference session

POS1-1 (11:00-13:00); POS1-2 (14:00-16:00);or POS1-3 (16:30-18:30) on Wednesday , 17 April.

POS1-4 (11:00-13:00); POS1-5 (14:00-16:00);or POS1-6 (16:30-18:30) on Thursday , 18 April.

Posters should remain up for the entirety of the session but then be removed immediately afterwards by the presenter.

The placement of your poster will be marked on the panel, where it will be presented with the number of your poster contribution in the designated session: Look for your number in the relevant poster session of the conference program.

The size of the poster panel that is available to each presenter is

Size Width x Height (mm) Width x Height (in)
A0 841 x 1189 mm 33.1 x 46.8 in

NOTE PORTRAIT Orientation (not Landscape)

The format of the poster panel is portrait (height > width). This cannot be modified. You are free to choose a single poster (or many smaller posters) that fit on the given panel size.

Your posters will be attached to the panel using sticky backed velcro, which will be made available on the day of the presentation.

If you are assigned to poster session in the program, you need not upload slides. You should just bring your printed poster to the conference.
