Format and Final Paper Template
Papers are limited to six (6) pages and must conform to the IEEE two-column format for conference papers. Up to two (2) additional pages may be included, but authors will be required to pay additional charges. The fee for each additional page is $45. Submissions exceeding eight (8) pages will not be accepted.
Electronic File Requirements
Final papers are to be submitted electronically, with file size limited to 2 MB. Accepted and presented papers will be published in the Conference Proceedings, and included in the IEEE Xplore® online digital library.
IEEE is very strict with the requirements for converting application files or PostScript files to full-text PDF for inclusion in IEEE Xplore®. Please follow the instructions in “IEEE PDF File Preparation Guide for IEEE Xplore®” which describes the essential steps in distilling PDFs that meet IEEE requirements.
It is important to make sure that all fonts used in the paper are embedded, especially for papers from Asia and Europe. The “IEEE PDF File Preparation Guide for IEEE Xplore®” reveals the process to ensure that all fonts used are embedded accordingly. Failure to embed and subset fonts is the biggest obstacle to PDF compliance with IEEE Xplore®. Papers failing to meet IEEE Xplore® PDF requirements will not be included in IEEE Xplore®.
