Camera Ready Instructions


Paper Formatting

Please, remember that papers must be formatted according to the IEEE 2-column conference article style, with a limit of 6 pages, including all figures, tables and references. A minimum paper length of 4 pages is also imposed. Word and LaTeX templates as well as PDF instructions are available here.

Do not add any page numbering, header or footer (other than the copyright info).

In preparing the camera ready version of your paper please make sure to take under consideration and address any and all comments by the reviewers.

Copyright Notice

All camera ready papers need to include the appropriate copyright notice at the bottom of the first page. Depending on the employment status of the authors, the copyright notice varies as follows:

      • For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is: U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright
      • For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is: 978-1-5386-8225-8/18/$31.00 ©2018 Crown
      • For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is: 978-1-5386-8225-8/18/$31.00 ©2018 European Union
      • For all other papers the copyright notice is: 978-1-5386-8225-8/18/$31.00 ©2018 IEEE

To insert the copyright notice, a command similar to the following one could be used (please, change the text as needed):

\IEEEpubid{\makebox[\columnwidth]{978-1-5386-8225-8/18/\$31.00~\copyright~2018~IEEE} \hspace{\columnsep}\makebox[\columnwidth]{ }}

IEEE Xplore Compatibility

In order to ensure compatibility with IEEE Xplore, camera-ready papers need to be verified by the PDF eXpress system. Strict compliance is required for inclusion in IEEE Xplore, so please ensure that all the criteria are satisfied. It is so essential that you use the IEEE PDF eXpress Plus site to validate your papers.
