Call for Unclassified Technical Papers

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; Software-Defined Radio; Cognitive Radio; Interference Management; Spectrum Coexistence; Emerging Concepts

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

TRACK 3 – Cyber Security and Trusted Computing
