To ensure appropriate consideration of conflicts of interest during the review process, the ComSoc prohibits changes to the list of authors once a paper has been submitted for review during review, revision, or (if accepted) final publication. The author list may be changed only prior to the submission deadline for review.

To be published in the IEEE PIMRC 2016 Conference Proceedings and to be eligible for publication in IEEE Xplore®, an author of an accepted paper is required to register for the conference at the full or limited (member or non-member) rate and the paper must be presented by an author of that paper at the conference unless the TPC Chair grants permission for a substitute presenter arranged in advance of the event and who is qualified both to present and answer questions. Author registrations are non-refundable. For authors with multiple accepted papers, one full or limited registration is valid for up to 1 paper (200 € each extra paper, maximum 2 extra papers). From the fourth paper, an additional registration is required. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE PIMRC 2016 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®.
