The PDF of the Call for Papers can be found.


Papers should follow a template, available in Word and LaTeX formats.


Paper submission is open to all researchers independently of being associated to European Framework projects. All papers are anonymously reviewed by the Technical Programme Committee (TPC) (i.e., authors are not aware of who the reviewers were). A notification of acceptance will be sent to the authors. The Organising Committee may only communicate with the author who submitted the paper, and not with all authors. Papers will be evaluated according to the following criteria:

  • Relevance and timeliness
  • Technical content and scientific rigour
  • Novelty and originality
  • Quality of presentation
  • Overall Recommendation


A Special Issue of EURASIP’s Journal on Wireless Communications and Networking dedicated to EuCNC will be issued.  The authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their paper (it needs to be sufficiently different than the conference counterpart, at least 1/3 of additional material, and the common part should not simply be a copy and paste of the EUCNC paper).


A Special Issue of River Publishers’ Journal of Green Engineering will be edited as well.  The best papers on green engineering and/or energy efficiency in the context of 5G will be invited for submission to this journal.


Best paper awards will be given.


Paper submission is already open! Check it at the Authors Guidelines page.
