IEEE International Conference on Communications
9–13 June 2024 // Denver, CO, USA
Scaling the Peaks of Global Communications



The ICC 2024 Technical Program Committee went through a rigorous process to review all the papers submitted and select the best ones among them. Less than 40% of papers submitted to Technical Symposia and less than 50% of paper submitted to Workshops have been accepted for presentation.

Accepted papers will be presented at the conference either in a lecture-style or in an interactive-style format. This distinction has no relationship with the quality of the accepted papers whatsoever.  Rather, papers have been selected for lecture-style or interactive style presentation based on space available at the conference center and to ensure topic homogeneity in lecture-style sessions.

Please make a note as to whether your paper is lecture-style or interactive-style.  For symposium papers, interactive Sessions are denoted in the Technical Program with a session code ending with “IS” after the dash, e.g., CISS-IS, WC-IS, etc., are Interactive Sessions.   Moreover, the title of the session is “Topics in <symposium> (Interactive)”, where <symposium> is the abbreviation for the symposium.  Directions for each style of presentation are given below.

All accepted and presented papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings and IEEE Xplore without any indication of the presentation mode. 

Please feel free to download use our PowerPoint template for your presentation.


Lecture-style presentations for the IEEE ICC 2024 Symposia will be held in theatre-style meeting rooms and have been allocated 18 minutes each (15 minutes of effective presentation time, plus 3 minutes for Q&A and change of speaker).

Lecture Sessions are denoted in the Technical Program with the Symposium acronym followed by a sequence number (e.g., CISS-1, CISS-2, etc.)

Presenters are expected to prepare their slide deck meticulously. Presentations should convey the main contents in a concise, clear and precise manner, providing an overview of the key principles, facts, and results. More detailed discussions can continue with session attendees during the breaks.

To ensure a seamless and smoothly running session, please carefully follow the following instructions:

  • Recognize the location and time of your session in advance. Obtain the necessary directions to the meeting room where your session will take place.
  • Arrive to the room 15 minutes before the start of the session and introduce yourself to the session chair.
  • A laptop, projector, and screen will be available in the session room, with the latest version of Microsoft PowerPoint and Office, and Acrobat Reader. A clicker/pointer is also available for the presenters.
  • Prepare your presentation in MS PowerPoint or Adobe PDF format and save it on a USB thumb drive. Bring the USB drive to your session and upload the presentation onto the laptop in the session room at least 10 minutes before the start time of your session. Alternatively, you may also upload it earlier during the coffee/lunch breaks on any of the days preceding your presentation. A volunteer will be present to assist you as needed. Check that your presentation file has been successfully uploaded without errors and it works with the software installed on the laptop.

To avoid any compatibility problems with your slide deck, please carefully follow the following instructions:

  • Prepare your presentation in MS PPT/PPTX or Adobe PDF format.
  • Kindly note that we are unable to offer assistance for embedded videos within your presentation. We recommend you test your presentation on the on-site laptop in advance, to verify that it works as you expect.
  • Only fonts that are included in the basic installation of MS-Windows will be available. Using other fonts not included in Windows may result in an incorrect layout or style of your presentation.


Interactive Sessions for the IEEE ICC 2024 Symposia are scheduled in 90-minute time slots, in which up to 18 presentations are given by Authors in parallel on LED TV screens (50 inches, horizontal orientation, HDMI interface) in the open space (Exhibit Area/Concourse level).

During interactive sessions, presenters can interact freely with session attendees (free flow). The Interactive Session offers a novel way to engage with the audience. Attendees will walk around from one presenter to another during the session, so that they too can optimize their time spent at the session.

In Interactive Sessions, you are required to show your slides on your own laptop connected to the LED screen (HDMI).

Interactive Sessions are denoted in the Technical Program with a session code ending with “IS” after the dash, e.g., CISS-IS, WC-IS, etc., are Interactive Sessions.   Moreover, the title of the session is “Topics in <symposium> (Interactive)”, where <symposium> is the abbreviation for the symposium. 

Interactive presenters should:

  • arrive at the Interactive Sessions area (located at the Exhibit Area/Concourse level) no later than 15 minutes before the start of the session.
  • bring his/her laptop with the final presentation already pre-loaded.

A volunteer will indicate which LED screen is allocated to each presentation.

During the refreshment breaks, the screens will be freely available to check your presentation, if needed.

There is no fixed template for interactive presentations.  Authors may choose to have use a single slide that is left up for the entire presentation, use a slide deck similar to lecture-style presentations (template), or use alternate interactive presentation software (e.g.,  Prezi).  However, please make sure the following information is ALWAYS visible on your screen during the Interactive Sessions, so that attendees can easily identify the papers being presented, regardless of the slide you are showing:

  • Paper title
  • List of authors with affiliations


Workshop presenters are required to adhere to the same guidelines provided for lecture-style presentations in the IEEE ICC 2024 Symposia.

It's important to note that workshop presentations may have various timing requirements. As such, presenters should contact the appropriate workshop organizers for guidance and clarification if further explanation is needed.
