The camera-ready (i.e., final) version of your papers may have up to 4 pages that MUST be prepared according to IEEE conference paper format. Please follow the following steps to submit the camera-ready version of your paper:

  1. Revise your manuscript carefully according to the comments of the reviewers and do thorough proofreading of the manuscript to confirm that it will require no revision.
  2. Go to IEEE PDF eXpress plus website (http://www.pdf-express.org/plus) and setup your IEEE PDF express plus account with the Conference ID: 40139XP
  3. Prepare your manuscript using the standard IEEE conference templates available via this link: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html (Note: The paper should not contain page numbers!).
  4. Before Creating a PDF add the copyright notice to the bottom of the first page of your source document (instructions below).
  5. Download the IEEE Copyright Form (http://www.ieee.org/documents/ieeecopyrightform.docx or http://www.ieee.org/documents/ieeecopyrightform.pdf ) (by clicking this, a copyright form will be downloaded), fill in the information, sign and scan it.
  6. From the final formatted manuscript, authors must generate the electronic FINAL version in PDF format that is compatible with IEEE Xplore. It is strongly recommended that the source file (MS Word or LaTeX) containing the final version of the paper must be transformed in the PDF format using the IEEE PDF eXpress plus web tool. PDF files generated by other means will still have to be checked by the IEEE PDF eXpress plus web tool for IEEE Xplore-compatibility.
  7. Carefully check the Paper-Title, Paper-ID, Author(s) Names and their sequence of appearance in the paper during copyright form fill-up. For any mismatch or discrimination between those information in the submitted copyright form, camera-ready paper and in the EasyChair system without any prior approval of TPC, the paper will be rejected and will not be considered by IEEE for its possible inclusion in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
  8. Upload the following files to EasyChair system (https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=iciset2016)
    • IEEE Xplore compatible final manuscript in PDF format (generated or checked by IEEE eXpress plus, file extension .pdf)
    • Source files used to generate IEEE Xplore compatible final manuscript. It should be either a zipped file containing all your LaTeX sources or a Word file in DOC or DOCX format (file extension .zip or .doc or .docx).
    • IEEE Copyright Form in PDF format, signed and scanned after filling in all the necessary information (file extension .pdf) [not required for the papers of Pharmacy track]
    • If you face difficulty in uploading files in EasyChair system, then send all three files to iciset.iiuc@gmail.com.
  9. Adding copyright notice to the bottom of the first page of the manuscript and signing IEEE Copyright Form is not required for the papers of Pharmacy track.
