Before submitting your manuscript, please email restricted program chairs for full submission instructions.

DO NOT EMAIL CUI or FOUO materials directly to the email alias

The papers follow IEEE policy and will have at least three qualified blind reviewers and will be judged against other submitted papers for applicability, etc.  Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and IEEE will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.
