Final PDF Paper Submission Instructions

Preparing Final PDF

Authors must adhere to the IEEE Conference written paper format. The author must submit the final version of the manuscript(s) and sign online the “IEEE Copyright Form” before the final submission deadline. This process is done through the same IES Submit system used for initial paper submission (link in "Where to Submit" section below).

IEEE is very strict about the compliance requirements for PDF files for inclusion in the IEEE Xplore® Digital Library. We strongly recommend using IEEE PDF eXpress® site to check your final version of the paper.

Later, the IES PCT system will perform more checks on your final version, and authors of wrongly formatted papers will be contacted.
