Camera-Ready Submission

Please do not submit your final papers nor copyright forms through EDAS. We do not collect them via EDAS.

Camera-Ready and Copyright Submission Link:!/auth/login?ak=1&pid=2BeAcRy79epz0vPtp8Yc9B

For the accepted papers to be included in the proceedings, the camera-ready version must be submitted using the recommended format (see below). The final PDF has to conform to the requirements for publishing on IEEE Xplore. The submission link will take you to the verification tools provided by IEEE.

In addition, the IEEE copyright form has to be submitted through the same website. At least one author of the paper must register for the conference at full rate. The registration must cover any over-length page charge. Details for registration will be made available shortly.

All the steps listed above must be completed by May 10th, 2023 (AoE timezone).

Please note that we will not be able to include your paper in the conference proceedings or IEEE Xplore if you do not follow the instructions below. The conference organizers also reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if it is not presented at the conference.

Preparation for the Camera-Ready

Paper Template
The paper should use the IEEE manuscript templates for conference proceedings. Make sure to use the conference mode of the template.

How to Submit Your Accepted Paper

1. Go to the Author Paper Submission Site (!/auth/login?ak=1&pid=2BeAcRy79epz0vPtp8Yc9B)

Step 1

4. On the left pane, you will find two pages (at the bottom) related to formatting and checking your final CR. Please first verify you apply the latest IEEE template. Note that, unlike ACM, you do not need to include a copyright text/bibstrip. We will stamp them for you. Please also don't add page numbers. We will add them as well.

Step 4

5. After that, please check out paper validation, and select the last option, which is the PDF eXpress. PDF eXpress is a service provided by IEEE. Once you have a camera-ready candidate, please follow the instruction to upload the pdf to IEEE PDF eXpress website to get your PDF stamped for IEEE eXplore compatible. Only by then, you can upload the stamped PDF to the submission system.
