2019 Authors

The 2019 IEEE 2nd 5G World Forum (5GWF’19) in Dresden, Germany, seeks contributions on how to nurture and cultivate 5G technologies and applications for the benefit of society.  5G systems should unveil a novel mobile network architecture that not only improves physical data rate, but also creates a new ecosystem allowing the deployment of novel services and applications. A key target is to build a novel network architecture that should support not only classical mobile broadband applications and services but also vertical industry (e.g. Intelligent Transport, Industrial IoTs, eHealth, etc.) and other 5G-based services.

An Online confirmation will be displayed and an email confirmation will be sent verifying your account setup.

Previous users of PDF eXpress need to follow the above steps, but should enter the same password that was used for previous conferences. Verify that your contact information is valid.

Contacting PDF eXpress Support: Access the Publications Support Center for IEEE PDF eXpress. If you do not find an answer in the Find Answers tab, go to the Ask A Question tab. Your question will be forwarded to IEEE PDF Support and answered within 3 business days.

Author Mandatory Registration

Identify the presenter of the paper in EDAS. The presenter must register and pay the subscription fee for the conference no later than 23 August 2019. Your paper cannot be included in the proceedings and in the final program if you are not registered for the conference and have not paid the fee by this date. In case of approval of more than one paper, an extra fee of 100 Euro must be paid per paper (up to two additional papers). At least one of the authors need to have a FULL registration (no student registration is accepted)

A visa letter will be issued to you after you register for the IEEE World Forum 5G 2019.

Submission Guidelines 

  • Full papers describing original research. Suggested size is four to six pages will be accepted. Papers will be fully peer reviewed. Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore.
  • Papers must be written using the IEEE conference proceedings style format (two-column and 10-point font). IEEE Formatting Guidelines. View information on IEEE style formats and available templates. Please use either Word or Latex package.
  • 5GWF takes the protection of intellectual property seriously. Accordingly, all submissions will be screened for plagiarism using CrossCheck. By submitting your work you agree to allow IEEE to screen your work. For more information please visit: http://www.crossref.org/crosscheck/index.html
