Paper Submission Instructions

The 31st IEEE International Conference on Network Protocols (ICNP 2023)
Reykjavik, Iceland, October 10-13, 2023  ICNP2023

Format and Length

Submitted papers must be written in English and have no more than ten (10) pages in double-column format with standard margins and a 10 point font. This length includes figures, tables, and appendices but authors can use unlimited pages for reference. Longer submissions will not be reviewed. Papers should include a title and an abstract of fewer than 250 words.

All papers must be formatted for printing on US LETTER (8.5" by 11") size paper and must adhere to the IEEE formatting requirements. For LaTeX, use the conference option. The template should be used as is. Papers that violate the template, e.g., by picking narrower line-spacing or margins than what the template defines, may be rejected without review. Papers must be submitted in PDF (Portable Document Format) and be compatible with Acrobat (English version), not including any special characters or non-standard fonts. A PDF format checker will be used to verify that your paper is compliant. In addition, we must be able to display and print your submission exactly as we receive it and using only standard tools and printers, so we strongly suggest that you use only standard fonts. Make sure that the paper prints well on black-and-white printers, not color printers. This is especially true for plots and graphs in the paper.
