Paper Submission

Submission Guidelines

Papers are to be submitted electronically using the HotCRP server, accessible here.

Papers can be submitted either as full papers or as short papers, following the IEEE single-spaced two-column format using a 10-point font size on 12-point (single-spaced) leading with 1" margins. Full papers should not exceed 10 pages and short papers should not exceed 5 pages. Short papers are expected to present work that is less mature but holds promise, articulate a high-level vision, describe challenging future directions, or offer results that do not merit a full submission. Please note that short papers also need evaluation results or analysis to corroborate the claims of the paper and that a paper longer than 5 pages is treated as a full paper.

Papers must be submitted electronically in PDF format through the paper-submission website linked from the conference website. IEEE templates for LaTeX and Microsoft Word, as well as related information, can be found at the IEEE Digital Toolbox web page. The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Communications Society.

All submissions will be evaluated using a double-blind review process. To ensure blind reviewing, papers should be anonymized by removing author names and affiliations, as well as by masking any information about projects and bibliographic references, etc. that might reveal the authors’ identities. Papers that are not properly anonymized will be rejected without review. Submitted papers should describe original and previously unpublished research and are not allowed to be simultaneously submitted or under review elsewhere.

To be published in the IEEE P2P 2015 Conference Proceedings and 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 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 2 papers. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE P2P 2015 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore.

Note: as in the previous year, P2P 2015 will have a two-phase reviewing process to provide additional feedback to authors of submitted papers. Specifically, all paper submissions will receive between 3 and 5 reviews each; while all papers will receive at least 3 reviews, papers of sufficient quality will undergo a second reviewing phase.

In addition to the main conference, IEEE P2P 2015 will have a poster and demo session, and a conference best paper award. The demo/poster session will be announced with a separate CFP. With authors’ consent some short papers not making it to the final program will be considered for poster presentation.
