STEP 3: Important Information about Preparing your Paper

The IEEE is dedicated to the worldwide distribution of conference papers to engineering professionals. The IEEE digital libraries are the primary delivery method, especially the IEEE Xplore digital library. This requires that all papers submitted for publication must meet a minimum standard for both print and electronic publishing.

We now offer conferences free access to PDF eXpress™, the IEEE's online file conversion/PDF validation tool, to assist authors in preparing suitable electronic files of their final papers. PDF eXpress™ helps authors convert their papers into IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF files (conversion function) or to check their own PDF files for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF validation function).

PDF eXpress™ is not a file submission system and does not capture files. An author's file simply passes through the system returning a PDF file or an error report.

After using PDF eXpress™, you will still need to submit the IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF file of your final paper later in this publication submission process (see STEP 8).


STEP 4: Formatting your Paper

Your final papers MUST be formatted to IEEE Computer Society Proceedings Manuscript Formatting Guidelines (see link to "formatting instructions" below). It is highly recommended that you proofread and check the layout of your paper BEFORE submitting it to PDF eXpress™.

Formatting Instructions:


STEP 5: Renaming your PDF File for Submission

Your paper will be automatically renamed to the paper title once you submit the PDF file and correct information through STEP 8: Final Paper PDF File Submission.


STEP 6: Submitting a Copyright Release Form

Please fill out and submit the following form to access the IEEE Electronic Copyright Form (eCF) system. The eCF system allows you to complete and sign the copyright release form. You must complete the IEEE copyright release form using the eCF system in order to submit your paper. This copyright release form MUST be COMPLETED when you are submitting your paper.

Please note: You are stating that the material in your paper is original and you have not previously released copyright for this paper to another party. We cannot publish your paper without this properly completed form.

STEP 8:Ordering Reprints (optional)

If you wish to order reprints of your paper, make checks payable to the IEEE Computer Society. (The reprints.pdf attachment below will allow you to type your information directly into the form before you print it out.) If these attached files become corrupt during transmission, you may access uncustomized copies at our FTP site.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact your editor.
