Required Publishing Tasks for Conference Publishers

Every author should pass through the IEEE PDF creator form (PDF express) before the final submission of his paper. We are sorry, but if PDF express returns errors, the paper isn’t acceptable for publication in IEEE sources.

  1. Collect copyright transfer agreements, one form per paper, not per author.
    IMPORTANT: The IEEE Copyright Form must be completed. An electronic copyright form is also available. Conference Organizers register with eCopyright to create an account that authors access online.  The Organizer then receives a weekly report of which copyright transfers have been completed.
  2. Instruct your authors to add the copyright notice to their papers before creating PDFs. Copyright notice can be found in Section IV – Copyright Information in the Letter of Acquisition.
  3. Instruct your authors to use the IEEE PDF eXpress site to validate their papers (see following page).
  4. Provide IEEE Xplore®-compatible PDFs to Conference Operations.
    IMPORTANT: Any changes made to a PDF after IEEE PDF eXpress conversion or PDF Checking may invalidate Xplore compatibility. This includes headers, page numbers, copyright notice, watermarks, etc. If any of these elements are desired, they should be added to the document before a PDF is created.
  5. All PDFs to be included in IEEE Xplore® (e.g. title page, copyright page, author index, etc.) should be validated through PDF eXpress for Xplore
  6. If you are not using a publishing vendor’s assistance, use the use the IEEE Packing List Generator (from the IEEE Publishing Technology Resources web page ) to expedite delivery of your PDFs to Xplore.
