Submission Instructions

Step 1: Prepare your revised final manuscript

Follow the instructions below to prepare your final manuscript.

  • Deal with all comments provided by reviewers and double the language of your paper.
  • Add Authors names and affiliations to your paper. Don't add any title (e.g. Dr., Prof, ...) to the author names.
  • Make sure that all Figures and Tables are of high quality and their content is easily readable.
  • The authors are urged to ensure that the camera-ready submission strictly follows the IEEE Template given on the conference website
  • The number of pages in Final Camera-Ready Paper must be within Six Pages.
  • The camera-ready papers that do not meet these requirements will not be submitted for further consideration to IEEE Xplore.
  • Headers, footers and page numbers will be added by the conference publication team. So, make sure that your paper contains no headers, no footers, and no page numbers.
Step 2: IEEE-Xplore-compatible PDF generation

Your final paper must be compliant with the requirements of the IEEE Xplore digital library. To help you meet this requirement, you must FIRST check to ensure that your PDF file is compliant by using the IEEE PDF eXpress web tool BEFORE you submit your camera-ready paper to the conference final submission web site. Otherwise, your submission will be excluded from Proceedings and IEEE Xplore.
