Invited authors may contribute papers up to eight pages in length, and plenary speakers may submit manuscripts up to ten pages.

You are responsible for and will need to convert your document to PDF format that is acceptable to IEEE.

There are many ways to convert your file into a PDF. Most offices/departments have a PDF writer such as the Adobe Acrobat software available for use. Microsoft 2007 can also be used to write PDF files, if available. When you use the PDF writer ensure that you use the press quality option and embed your fonts.

PLEASE CAREFULLY CHECK THE FINAL PDF VERSION (INCLUDING CONTENT, SPECIAL CHARACTERS, FONTS, ETC.) TO ENSURE THAT EVERYTHING IS CORRECT BEFORE SUBMITTING THE FINAL MANUSCRIPT. REFER TO THE TEMPLATE FOR FONTS, MARGINS, AND FONT SIZES TO BE USED FOR THE PAPER. PLEASE NOTE THAT ONLY US LETTER PAPER SIZE WILL BE ACCEPTED. YOU MUST SAVE AND SUBMIT THE MANUSCRIPT ON THE WEB-SITE (OTHERWISE YOUR PAPER WILL STAY IN DRAFT FORM AND WILL NOT APPEAR IN THE PROCEEDINGS).

Papers must be in the correct format to be considered for review and publication.
