More details about registration can be found here.

STEP 1: Complete a properly formatted paper document

Please use these Manuscript Templates (PDF - Latex - Word) for Conference Proceedings when preparing your final submission. A4 paper size is preferred. Note that papers exceeding the 6-page limit have to pay an additional extra fee of USD100 per page.

IMPORTANT: Final papers MUST include author names and affiliations as illustrated on templates.  A non-zero PDF top and bottom margin is required (at least 0.5 inches). Please do not include any page number, headers/footers, EDAS number, or the conference name in the final version.

STEP 2: Generate your PDF file using IEEE PDF eXpressTM (only Conference full papers)

IEEE PDF eXpressTM allows you to convert your Word, LaTeX, or range of other source files into IEEE XploreTM compatible files (preferred option). Alternatively you can use PDF eXpress to check your own pdf files for compatibility.

If problem persist, please use the online help provided in the PDF eXpress’s site to seek for their advice.

IMPORTANT: Only after you obtain IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs then proceed to Step 3. Any attempt to bypass the problem MAY result in your paper not be included in IEEE Xplore. Author with multiple papers are to make submission separately.

STEP 3: Submit the paper and copyright form through EDAS
