Introduction to IEEE PDF eXpress

GIIS 2013 has registered for use of the IEEE tool: IEEE PDF eXpress.

According to the new IEEE Xplore Requirements for PDF, all conference articles submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore must adhere to the IEEE Xplore PDF specification for compatibility.

IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).

It is important to note that submitting a file to IEEE PDF eXpress is only for creation of a compliant PDF file, you must still submit your final paper through EDAS.

Microsoft Word

* For documents created in formats that do not embed source files, include all support files with the final manuscript in a folder. Put this folder in a compressed archive for submission. If it is possible to embed images in the source document, you should do so to avoid potential issues, such as missing graphics.

IMPORTANT: A DVI (DeVice Independent file) is required for LaTeX conversions, in addition to all associated image files. Make sure that your LaTeX system can output a DVI, otherwise it cannot be converted. Be sure also to check that your images are properly referenced, and that DVI can handle the image file types used (DVI does not handle some newer image types, such as *.png).

An additional 5 minutes are available for discussion with the attendees.

Posters will be displayed all day. Authors are responsible for setting up their poster at the beginning of the day and removing it at the end of the day. Each poster board will be identified by a poster number. Refer also to the final technical program to confirm the number assigned to your poster presentation. Authors are asked to present their posters during the poster presentation sessions (10:00 to 11:00) to discuss their findings with participants and answer any questions. Poster boards will be provided to display poster presentation materials. All posters should be based on the submitted short papers as accepted by the Technical Programme Committee. The Poster Board Number will be posted on site. Please bring your poster with you. Design your poster so that it is easy to read and include some visuals. Allocate the top of the poster for the title and authors' names and affiliations. Remember the audience may have a short time frame to read your poster.
