Final Manuscript Submission Guidelines

You must complete the final version of your paper by December 8, 2008 at 11:59 pm PST. We are on a tight publication schedule for the conference, and this deadline is final with no exceptions.

Submit the final version of your paper using the same system you used to submit your paper for review:

When you login to the system, first click on the link for your paper. Directly below the review scores you will find an "Edit Paper" link. Click on that link and follow the instructions for uploading the pdf version of your paper. You must upload pdf, no other format is allowed.

Page limit — The maximum number of pages for a paper is 10 for full papers, and 2 for posters.

Overall appearance — Conference manuscripts should adhere to the appearance of the standard IEEE two-column format that is used in the IEEE Transactions with the following exceptions:

  • No headers
  • No footers
  • No page numbers

Margins — Manuscripts must use a 10pt font on US Letter paper with margins no smaller than:

  • Top: 0.75 inch
  • Bottom: 1 inch
  • Side: 0.625 inch

The paper size and margins are the same as with the initial paper submissions. If you strictly adhered to those specifications, you should not have to change anything.

(For complete formatting specifications, you can download the IEEE Format Definition Table and Glossary.)

Templates — Depending on whether you are using LaTeX or MS Word for formatting your paper, you can download the following templates that incorporate the formatting specifications:

Examine the IEEEtran LaTeX Class (template) V1.7 packages and IEEEtran V1.12 BibTeX (bibliography) packages. Be sure to use the template's conference mode. See template documentation for details. A cover letter for the templates, including more pointers, is also available.

Papers must be submitted in PDF (Portable Document Format) and compatible with Acrobat (English version), not including any special characters or non-standard fonts. We must be able to display and print your submission exactly as we receive it and using only standard tools and postscript printers, so we strongly suggest that you use only standard fonts. Simplified Requirements for Creating PDF Files is a three-page document that describes the essential steps in distilling PDFs. Make sure that the paper prints well on black-and-white printers, not color printers. Pay particular attention to figures and graphs in the paper to ensure that they are legible without color.
