Submission Guidelines:

IEEE OWC Workshop accepts only novel, previously unpublished papers. Prospective authors are encouraged to submit a 6-page IEEE conference style paper (including all text, figures, and references) through the EDAS submission system ( (If you have any problems during submission, please contact: tdcl at Accepted papers must be presented at the workshop by one of the authors. The presenter must register for the workshop before the deadline for the author registration. Failure to register before the deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of the paper from the workshop proceedings and the program. All papers selected for presentation will be published together with IEEE GLOBECOM 2014 proceedings and available on the IEEE Xplore database
