If you have not already finalized your manuscript this section provides guidelines regarding acceptable manuscript applications, layout, fonts, and graphics.
- Templates: Please use Microsoft Word or LaTeX to create your document. It is strongly suggested to use the IEEE templates that incorporate the correct formatting specifications. If you decide not to use the templates, please be aware that you might incur into problems when submitting the camera ready, where strict formatting according to the Definition Table and Glossary will be enforced.
- Page limit: 6 maximum number of pages, with 1 additional page allowed with the purchase of additional page charges at the time of registration and final paper submission.
- Headers, footers, and page numbers: No headers, footers, or page numbers should appear on your manuscript.
- Margins: Papers cannot be accepted with margins smaller than those given in the table below:
- Fonts: Fonts must be either Post Script or True Type and licensed for embedding. Use of unlicensed and custom-made or hacked fonts is strictly prohibited; your submission will be rejected if it is found to contain them. Below is a list of recommended fonts:
Times New Roman
- Graphics and Images:
- Choose vector graphics (e.g., .eps or .pdf) over bitmap (.bmp, .png, or .jpg) images because they are electronically efficient and will not conflict with conversions to PDF.
- All images should be checked by printing to hardcopy if the conference will be producing a book, especially when color images in your paper will be translated to black and white in print.
- Resolution should be between 150 and 300 dpi or less. Resolutions greater than 300 will cause down sampling; images below 300 will not render well in print.
- Labels within graphics should have a type point size of 4 or higher.
- Smooth Graphics should not be used as it often produces extremely large files with slow loading time. The Smooth Graphics option is usually found in the Page Setup Dialog box.
