    • Prosper and George discussed about the style of IEEE Communications Magazine papers. George mentioned they should not be a high level or survey proposals or an architecture without any validation and should have some realization behind to support it. Essentially IEEE COMMAG Series papers should have a tutorial text in the first part, while the second part should have the specific contributions to advance the state of the art. George also mentioned that Tarek S. El-Bawab, the new editor-in-chief has plans to change that and will get in touch with the Series Editors.
