As NoF 2021 will be held as a virtual conference, speakers are required to record and submit a video of their talk by September 29.
However, we request all speakers to gives their presentation live.

The recorded video is mandatory and should be uploaded on EDAS like the camera-ready paper.
For each paper, the presenter of the paper must be indicated and his/her bio uploaded on EDAS.

During the conference on October 6 – 8, 2021, each Presenter is requested to join his/her session in order to give their presentation live and to be online to answer questions from the audience. Otherwise, the paper might not be published in IEEE Xplore.
