  3. IEEE Policies
    : IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference. 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 the IEEE Communications Society will take action against any author who engages in either practice. Follow these links to learn more on plagiarism and double submission: IEEE Policy on Plagiarism and IEEE Policy on Double Submission.
