(3) Final Paper Submissions with IEEE Xplore compliance

PLEASE NOTE: IEEE now accept only IEEE XploreTM-compliant PDF files for final paper submissions. Please stress to authors the importance of distilling their PDF files to meet IEEE PDF specifications.

IEEE online author kits now include instructions for authors to access and use the IEEE PDF eXpressTM online file conversion/PDF validation system. PDF eXpressTM helps authors convert their papers into IEEE XploreTM-compatible PDF files (conversion function) or to check their own PDF files for IEEE XploreTM compatibility (PDF validation function). There is no additional charge to use the PDF eXpressTM system for conferences publishing through CPS.

At a minimum, basic PDF distiller settings MUST be changed so PDF files are: optimized, set to Acrobat 4.0 compatibility, all graphics are set to at least 300 dpi resolution, ALL fonts are embeddable, POSTSCRIPT fonts, ALL fonts must be embedded and subset, postscript settings SHOULD NOT override distiller settings and page size is 612.0 x 792.0 points (8.5″ x 11″). Authors should check their final PDF files before submission to verify that all fonts have been properly embedded and subset. Some font manufacturers now flag their fonts to not embed. These fonts should be avoided.

An Adobe Acrobat Distiller JobOptions file set up to meet these minimum IEEE PDF specifications is available upon request. You may also adjust this JobOptions file to produce higher resolution graphics if so desired.
