Regular Track

Research papers (full) should explore a specific technology problem and propose a complete solution to it, with experimental results.

Work-in-Progress Track

Report on early or ongoing research activities within the scope of PICom

Workshop Track

Papers for workshops on specific topics hosted by PICom Congress (please see the list of accepted workshops after the deadline)

Special Session Track

Papers following a specific theme in a special session within the PICom Congress (please see the list of accepted workshops after the deadline)

Poster/Demo Track

Describe a vision, technique, or working system within the scope of PICom.


Regular (full), work-in-progress (WiP), workshop/special session, poster papers all need to be in IEEE CS format and submitted following the same instruction as the main conference (

A regular (full) paper is between 6-8 pages. A WiP, workshop, or special session paper should be between 4-6 pages and a poster paper should be between 2-4 pages. Some papers originally submitted as full can be accepted as short papers or posters during the review process. In such cases, the authors will need to reduce the paper accordingly when preparing the camera-ready version. At least one of the authors of any accepted paper is requested to register and present the paper at the conference.


Extended versions of selected excellent papers will be considered for fast-track publication in special issues of prestige journals. The following journals are already confirmed:
