About IEEE GI 2017

The Global Internet (GI) Symposium is the flagship event established and organized by the Internet Technical Committee (ITC), a joint committee of the IEEE Communications Society (ComSoc) and the Internet Society (ISOC).

The IEEE Global Internet Symposium aims to provide a top forum for researchers and practitioners to present advances in Internet related technologies, and also allow healthy debate about various approaches. For instance, how does a novel solution compare, in terms of tangible metrics such as storage, latency, bandwidth, manageability, resilience, and usability, with existing and other approaches? So in addition to traditional research papers, and deployment description papers, we encourage position papers, papers that compare proposed approaches, papers that clarify and compare inherent differences between competing technologies, and well-thought-through heresy.

Submission guidlines

The manuscripts should be formatted in standard IEEE camera-ready format and be submitted as PDF files (formatted for 8.5x11-inch paper). The reviews will be single blind. The manuscripts must be no longer than 6 pages. The Program Committee reserves the right to not review papers that violate these formatting rules. Submitted papers must not have been previously published, or be under consideration for publication elsewhere. All submitted papers will be reviewed and judged on originality, technical correctness, relevance, and quality of presentation. Please, use the standard IEEE Transactions templates for Microsoft Word or LaTeX formats found at: http://www. If the paper is typeset in LaTeX, please use an unmodified version of the LaTeX template IEEEtran.cls. Do not use additional LaTeX commands or packages to override and change the default typesetting choices in the template, including line spacing, font sizes, margins, space between the columns, and font types. This implies that the manuscript must use 10 point Times font, two-column formatting, as well as all default margins and line spacing requirements as dictated by the original version of IEEEtran.cls. If you are using Microsoft Word to format your paper, you should use an unmodified version of the Microsoft Word IEEE Transactions template (US letter size). Regardless of the source of your paper formatting, you must submit your paper in the Adobe PDF format. The paper must print clearly and legibly, including all the figures, on standard black-and-white printers. Reviewers are not required to read your paper in color. Submission will be using the EDAS system, the link for submission will be published here soon.
All accepted papers must be presented at the symposium by one of the authors.
