Extension Policy

Extensions for submission of papers will be granted as follows: Papers MUST be registered by 15 May. Once you have registered your paper (including title and abstract), you have until 22 May to upload the paper. (Deadlines are Midnight PDT (GMT -7) on the 15th and 22nd respectively.)

Submission Guidelines

Papers must be written in English. Only electronic submissions will be accepted. Papers not meeting the guidelines will be returned to the authors.

Format and Length

Papers must be single-spaced or 1.5-spaced, one column, with margins of at least 1 inch (2.5 cm) on all sides, with a fontsize at least 11 points. Papers must not exceed 20 pages.

Encodings Accepted

Due to the need to have papers accessible to all reviewers, we can accept only PostScript and Portable Document Format (PDF) files. Please be sure that fonts used in your document are available on all platforms or included with the document.

Dual Submissions

Once submitted to ICNP, a paper cannot be submitted to another workshop, conference or journal until the ICNP acceptance decision is known. To do so is to risk wasting one of our community's scarcest resources: reviewer effort. Similarly, a paper that is under consideration elsewhere, including a workshop or journal, cannot simultaneously be submitted to ICNP.

If some of the material in a submission has appeared in a workshop, the paper should so indicate. This is only acceptable if the paper submitted to ICNP provides substantial additional results compared to the earlier or pending publication.


Proposals for tutorials are solicited. Proposals will be evaluated on the expertise and experience of the instructors, and on the relevance of the subject matter.

Tutorial proposers are requested to submit a description of at most 5 pages, including a biographical sketch, to the Tutorial Chair, Christian Jacquenet (christian.jacquenet@rd.francetelecom.com).

Deadline for submission of Tutorial Proposals is 10 May 2002

Electronic Submission

Papers are being handled through the EDAS system. Submission is a two-step process: first you register the paper with EDAS. Then you will be given instructions for uploading the paper into the system. You will need to be "logged in" as an EDAS use to complete the process. (If you are not already known to EDAS as an author or reviewer, you will have an opportunity to create a user account before you register your paper.) To begin the process, click on the link below.

Submit a paper to ICNP 2002.

Please indicate the topics/keywords relevant to your paper when registering it, as these will be used to match papers to reviewers.

Important Note: Registration Policy

The organizers of ICNP have instituted the following policy:

"At least one of the authors of each paper presented at the conference must be registered in a non-student category."
