Final paper (camera ready) submission information and paper guidelines (follow all steps):


Step 1: Prepare and revise your final paper
Papers of at least 6 pages and at most 10 pages need to have the IEEE a4 conference paper style, of which the templates can be found here:

Paper template Latex: http://ras.papercept.net/conferences/support/tex.php
Paper template Word: http://ras.papercept.net/conferences/support/word.php

(In the Latex template you have to uncomment/activate the second line: "\documentclass[a4paper, 10pt, conference]{ieeeconf}". For Word you have to use the "ieeeconf_A4.dot" template.)

Please consider all reviewer comments carefully and improve your paper for its final version. Remember that your paper will be very visible due to the IEEE indexing.



Step 2: Add Copyright information to the first page of the paper
The appropriate copyright clearance code notice is to appear on the bottom (center) of the first page (only) (see example) of each paper according to the guidelines set forth in the Cataloging/Copyright Instructions for an IEEE Conference Proceeding.

  • 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: 978-1-5386-6380-6/18/$31.00 ©2018 Crown

Step 3: Check your Final Paper
In order to publish your paper in IEEE Xplore, it is necessary that you check and verify if your final paper is IEEE compliant before submitting it. (Please be aware that papers that are not IEEE compliant will not be published in IEEE Xplore.) This must be done through PDF eXpress where you can sign in as follows:
