INFORMATION FOR AUTHORS: One author from each paper (main conference and workshops) will be asked to register by July 30, 2013 (i.e., before the paper goes to the publisher) or the paper will not be included in the program/proceedings. Each registration is good for one paper; each additional paper by the same registrant will require an additional $200 to cover the cost for EDAS and publishing. The maximum number of papers that can be covered with one registration is three.

The IEEE reserves the right to exclude paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference. Please see the No-Show Policy for details.

ATTENDANCE ATTESTATION: If you require an attestation or letter of confirmation for your attendance at LCN 2013 and/or the presentation of your paper(s), please bring a written attendance letter that contains all of your required details to the LCN 2013 registration desk, where your letter will be signed and stamped.

Any questions related to conference registration should be directed to the LCN Finance Chair, Frank Huebner.
