Camera-ready versions

Camera-ready versions of accepted papers must be in PDF format to meet IEEE PDF specifications.

The IEEE online author kits now include instructions for authors to access and use the IEEE PDF eXpress online file conversion/PDF validation system. PDF eXpress helps authors convert their papers into IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF files (conversion function) or to check their own PDF files for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF validation function). There is no additional charge to use the PDF eXpress system for conferences publishing through CPS.

At a minimum, basic PDF distiller settings MUST be changed so PDF files are: optimized, set to Acrobat 4.0 compatibility, all graphics are set to at least 300 dpi resolution, ALL fonts are embeddable, POSTSCRIPT fonts, ALL fonts must be embedded and subset, postscript settings SHOULD NOT override distiller settings and page size is 612.0 x 792.0 points (8.5" x 11"). Authors should check their final PDF files before submission to verify that all fonts have been properly embedded and subset. Some font manufacturers now flag their fonts to not embed. These fonts should be avoided.
