IEEE MILCOM 2024 solicits technical papers and proposals for tutorials and panels on current and emerging topics applicable to all facets of military communications. We encourage professionals in industry, academia, and government worldwide to contribute and participate. The general forum will be open to all participants and accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore. The Restricted Access Program will support Controlled Unclassified Information (CUI) materials in addition to a Classified Program for content up to Top Secret/Sensitive Compartmented Information (TS/SCI).


Unclassified Technical Program

The unclassified technical program provides a venue for papers and presentations that do not include ITAR-sensitive, CUI, classified, or proprietary information. EDAS will be used for all unclassified paper submissions. IEEE MILCOM 2024 welcomes submissions from researchers, inventors, and technology leaders from government, U.S. and coalition military services, industry, research laboratories, and universities. Papers with a strong emphasis on U.S. military operations should be submitted to the restricted or classified sessions. The following technical five tracks have been established for paper submission:

TRACK 1 – Waveforms and Signal Processing
 Antennas & RF; Modulation & Coding; Interference Management; Spectrum Sharing and Coexistence; Cognitive and Software Defined Radio; 5G and beyond systems; Open RAN Concepts and Orchestration.

TRACK 2 – Networking Protocols and Performance
 Ad Hoc, Mesh, & Cooperative Networks; Mobile Edge Networks; Software-Defined Networking; Network Slicing and Virtualization; Information-Centric Networking; Network Science.

TRACK 3 – Cyber Security and Trusted Computing
Topics: Cryptography; Key Management; Advanced Persistent Threat Detection & Mitigation; Tactical Cloud Security; Wireless Security; Multi-Level Security; Edge/Fog Computing and Networking; Zero Trust Network Security; Emerging Concepts.

TRACK 4 – Integrated Network Architecture and Systems-of-Systems
