Creating IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF Camera Ready Manuscript

For creating IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF files, please go to the IEEE PDF eXpress site. To create your account, please click the link “New Users – Click Here” and fill in your information. You will need the conference ID that is: 37442x. The manual is available here.

After your PDF file passes the PDF check, you can submit your paper at the paper submission system. The file returned by the IEEE PDF eXpress will be labeled “Certified by IEEE PDF eXpress” with an exact time stamp in its document properties such as creator or application. You must submit this certified file for the camera ready paper submission.

IEEE Policies

As ISPACS2016 is technically co-sponsor by IEEE, IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the symposium (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the symposium.

Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and IEEE will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.

Final Manuscript Upload

The authors need to upload their final manuscripts and other related documents at the registration web site which is not the Easy Chair system. The user account is the e-mail address of the corresponding author or the paper owner.
