IEEE INFOCOM incorporates a rigorous double-blind review process, empowered by a fully automated review assignment system that analyzes the submitted manuscripts and the representative publications of TPC members, and matches the submissions to TPC members’ expertise and interests. The automated review assignment system, termed Erie, is described in the following paper. 


B. Li and Y.T. Hou. “The new automated INFOCOM review assignment system,” IEEE Network, vol.30, no.5, pp.18-24, Sept./Oct. 2016.


Accepted and presented papers will be published in the IEEE INFOCOM 2020 Conference Proceedings and submitted to IEEE Xplore®. Full details of submission procedures and requirements for authors of accepted papers are available at
