Instructions on Preparing and Submiting Final Camera Ready Paper

Please follow the guidelines below in order to prepare and submit your final camera ready paper. Failure to do so may jeopardise the publication in the final proceedings.

  1. Please observe REVIEWERS' COMMENTS for your paper, which should be addressed in your final paper, as publication is conditional on appropriate response to the requirements and comments.
  2. Please prepare your manuscript for final camera ready submission following the same PDF format guidelines as for the initial submission. Standard submissions will be 6 pages, and additional pages will incur a supplement charge of £50 per page. All papers must be IEEEXplore compliant and must follow the formatting instructions.
  3. To ensure that your file is fully compliant with IEEEXplore, you need to verify your paper with IEEE PDF eXpress using the conference ID: 38184XP. More details on pdf conversion using PDF eXpress can be found here.
  4. Once your paper is ready for submission, please go to the conference submission system, and update your submission in the system as the final version. Final papers MUST be submitted by June 20, 2016. Any papers submitted after this date runs the risk of not being included in the proceedings. A final version of the paper must be submitted even if the reviewers have indicated that no changes are required.

IMPORTANT: Please note that once you submit your paper, you cannot submit any subsequent revision. All papers submitted through the web site are considered to be in final form and ready for publication.  Please do not submit your paper until all edits have been completed.  A good suggestion is to have a few colleagues review your paper to provide final remarks on its suitability before submitting it through the website. In addition, please note that it is the author's responsibility to ensure that all figures/plots can be printed and comprehended in black and white.
