IEEE International Conference on Communications
20-24 May 2018 // Kansas City, MO, USA
Communications for Connecting Humanity

Call For Posters

The joint N2Women and WICE workshop aims to foster connections among women and researchers from underrepresented groups and minorities in communications, computer networking and related research fields. The workshop also welcomes men who share the same research interests, often face similar career hurdles as women, acknowledge underrepresentation of women and other minority groups in the field and believe proactive action is required for improving retention rate.

Posters are solicited for research related to any aspect of networking and communications. All researchers in the networking and communications fields are welcome to submit their work for presentation at this workshop. Posters will NOT be published in IEEE Workshop proceedings and can therefore be work in progress, under submission in other conferences or workshops or a combination of recently published work. Authors of accepted posters will be invited to present their work as part of a lightning presentations session, followed by an hour of interactive poster presentation. One poster will be selected for Best Poster Award. The posters will be judged based on a) technical merit of the poster, b) presentation quality during the lightning talk as well as the poster presentation session. Presenting a poster is a great opportunity to receive interesting and valuable feedback on ongoing research from mentors and a knowledgeable crowd at the workshop.

Authors of all accepted posters will have their workshop registration reimbursed after they attend the conference. Among them, students will receive a complementary ICC main conference registration as well (Note: in case you also have a paper at the main conference, this complementary registration will not waive the required author registration of your accepted paper).

Travel Grants

Travel grants are available for students (undergraduate or graduate), postdocs or young professionals who present a poster at this workshop, upto $800 for attendees from North America, and $1500 for attendees from the rest of the world. The link and guidelines for the travel grant application will be available soon in the workshop website.

Poster Submission

Each submission should be formatted as an extended abstract, describing the research to be presented in the poster. All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of TWO printed pages (10-point font), including all figures and references. Authors must follow the standard IEEE two-column conference format.
