Please note that with IEEE conferences, the author affiliation is listed under the author’s name, unlike IEEE transactions.

Please do not add any page numbering, header, or footer. No copyright notice is required as it is automatically added during the production process of the conference proceedings.

Please note that the top margin is at least 0.75in or 1.9cm, respectively, whereas the bottom margin is at least 1.0in or 2.54cm, respectively. This space is required to stamp conference/track name, copyright notice, and page numbers later.

For IEEEtran class in LaTeX, please use the following as the first line in your LaTeX source file:
\documentclass[10pt, conference]{IEEEtran}

Users of the Microsoft Word templates must remove the incomplete copyright notice in the footer and are requested to move the text box for funding grants, if used, upwards above the footer into the first column on the first page.

Users of the Microsoft Word US letter template must NOT use the slanted/italic version of the title font. 

Users of the Microsoft Word A4 template have to manually adjust the top margin on the first page to 1.9cm.


Authors are required to use IEEE PDF eXpress to make sure that their PDF file is compliant to the latest IEEE Xplore requirements. Papers that are not compliant will not be included in the proceedings nor published in IEEE Xplore.

  • Go to IEEE PDF eXpress Website:
  • Create an IEEE PDF eXpress account (use conference ID: 62440X)
  • Use ‘new user’ if you have not used this site before
  • Continue to enter information as prompted
  • Do NOT use ‘Approve for collection’ in PDF eXpress Plus, if requested

The validated PDF obtained from PDF eXpress is the file that you must upload as a final version. It includes a label in the PDF metadata that certifies the compatibility with IEEE Xplore.

The PDF eXpress site can also be used to convert source files into an IEEE Xplore-compliant PDF file (e.g., for LaTeX users, create a ZIP file that includes DVI and EPS figure files all together, and then upload the ZIP file for the system to convert into a compliant PDF file; for MS Word users, upload the Word file and let it convert and return a compliant PDF file).
