You can create your document in MS Word DOC format. You can read the IEEE
guidelines, the Format Definition Table and use the Word Template here. First, format the document correctly, then use the PDF Creation files (contains settings for many PDF distiller softwares) to distill your document.
For users of Latex, you must use the Latex Classes provided here, for Windows based computers, or Linux based computers. Once completed, please be sure to generate a Latex PS file of your paper. For more information and help on how to work with Latex and PS, please visit this Tutorial page.
Once you have completed your paper, please make sure that it's column widths and paper margins are correct. You can use this Bounding Box Reference to measure your papers dimensions again to.
Your paper can only be submitted in PDF format.
Failure to meet the formatting guidelines set here will result in your paper not being included in the Proceedings CD.
Length and Layout
The submitted version should be an extended abstract, formatted with the IEEE Transaction template (see above), 11pt font, one column text, one-and-a-half line spacing on letter paper. Length including all figures, tables, bibliography, and short abstract must not exceed 8 (eight) pages. The IEEE LaTeX template has appropriate settings to produce this layout.
The camera-ready version of regular papers and invited papers, formated with the IEEE Transaction template (see above), 10pt, two columns, one line spacing, are allowed up to 10 (ten) pages in the final version, including all figures, tables and references. Use the standard IEEE Transaction format without extra switches. Extra pages will incur additional charges.
All papers must be in English.
When creating a PDF file, please make sure that you are using Type 1 fonts, which are embeddable. Please make sure that all fonts and subset fonts are embedded.
Graphics should be inserted, rather than cutting and pasting. Do not link to a graphic. All graphics have to be vector formats; including bitmap formats usually results in inferior quality. If bitmaps are required, typically to reproduce fotographs, they should have resolutions of 600dpi for monochrome, 300 dpi for grayscale, and 300 dpi for color. (Please pay particular attention to including vector formats when using MS Word or similar programs as there the danger of inadvertently using bitmaps is high.)
Each paper should contain an abstract of 100 to 150 words that appears at the beginning of the document. Use the same text that is submitted electronically along with the author contact information.
List and number all references at the end of the document. The references can be numbered in alphabetical order or in order of appearance in the paper. When referring to them in the text, type the corresponding reference number in square brackets as shown at the end of this sentence . The end of the document should include a list of references containing information similar to the following example:
 D. E. Ingalls, "Image Processing for Experts," IEEE Trans. ASSP, vol. ASSP-36, pp. 1932-1948, 1988.
Illustrations & Colors
Illustrations must appear within the designated margins. They may span the two columns. If possible, position illustrations at the top of columns, rather than in the middle or at the bottom. Caption and number every illustration. All halftone illustrations must be clear in
black and white.
Do not put page numbers on your document. We will add appropriate page numbers to accepted papers when the conference proceedings are assembled.
