Call for Refereed Papers

Papers are sought for oral presentation on all aspects of military communications and information systems, especially those focusing on the Conference themes. All papers will be refereed (on the full paper.) Authors will be advised in writing of acceptance or non acceptance of their paper.

The conference will address:

  • Operational Concepts
  • Information Management
  • Command Support Systems
  • Waveforms and Signal Processing
  • Network Architectures
  • Network Systems and Management
  • Routing and Protocols
  • RF Technologies and Antennas
  • Wireless Technologies
  • Satellite Technologies
  • Cellular Technologies
  • Cyber Security and Electronic Warfare
  • Sensors and Sensor Fusion
  • Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS)
  • Software-defined / Cognitive Technologies (Network, Radios)
  • Tactical Data Links
  • Modelling and Analysis
  • Evolving and Future Technologies

Papers must:

  • be no more than six pages in length without prior agreement of the organisers;
  • conform to the requirements of the conference template (MILCIS_Shell.doc);
  • only contain material that is unclassified and not commercially sensitive; and
  • be submitted in pdf format via the automatic submission system (click here).

Authors may submit papers into the IEEE Stream or the Industry Stream of the conference. Both streams are refereed—the IEEE Stream is suited to technical papers satisfying the requirements of an IEEE conference; the Industry Stream is more suited to applications-based papers. If in doubt, authors should submit their paper to the IEEE Stream and the Technical Committee will determine its suitability.

The following timetable will apply:

  • Submission of refereed papers for review   -  Tuesday 12 June 2018
  • Notification and comments to authors of refereed papers  -  Tuesday 17 July 2018
  • Deadline for author registration  -  Tuesday 21 August 2018
  • Deadline for submission of final paper  -  Tuesday 21 August 2018

Author Registration

At least one author MUST pay for a full conference registration for their attendance at the conference.
