Camera-ready submission for the accepted papers in Technical Tracks, Symposiums, and Workshops

It is ABSOLUTELY MANDATORY to follow the IEEE templates while preparing the camera-ready submission.

Camera-ready submission and author registration deadline: 20 October, 2023


Additional Page Charge: The recommended length for the paper(s) is between five to six (5-6) pages. However, authors can submit papers up to eight (8) printed pages, which include figures and tables. Additional page charges can be paid at the time of registration through Cvent. Once the payment is made, authors can contact the TPC to adjust the page length via EDAS.


Authors should upload the final paper via EDAS.


Camera-ready submission for the accepted Posters

Poster papers must be no longer than two (2) printed pages, written in English, and be formatted in the standard IEEE two-column format with a main body font size of 10 points. The mandatory IEEE templates in Microsoft Word and LaTeX format can be found on the IEEE templates webpage and the author and submission guideline webpage of the main conference. The poster (work-in-progress papers) will appear in the conference proceedings, along with regular main technical tracks, and they will be submitted to IEEE Xplore®. Authors will include their names, affiliations, and other identifying information in the final manuscripts. 


This section provides guidelines regarding acceptable manuscript applications, layouts, fonts, and graphics.

  1. Templates: Please use Microsoft Word or LaTeX to create your document. It is strongly suggested to use the IEEE templates that incorporate the correct formatting specifications. If you decide not to use the templates, please be aware that you might incur into problems when submitting the camera ready, where strict formatting according to the Definition Table and Glossary will be enforced.
  2. Page limit: The suggested size is five to six (5-6) pages. Papers up to eight (8) printed pages including figures, and tables will be allowed with the purchase of additional page charges at the time of registration and final paper submission.
  3. Headers, footers, and page numbers: No headers, footers, or page numbers should appear on your manuscript.
  4. Margins : Papers cannot be accepted with margins smaller than those given in the table below:


US Letter



0.75 inch

19 mm


1 inch

43 mm


0.625 inch

13 mm

  1. Fonts : Fonts must be either Post Script or True Type and licensed for embedding. Use of unlicensed and custom-made or hacked fonts is strictly prohibited; your submission will be rejected if it is found to contain them. Below is a list of recommended fonts:




Times New Roman





  1. Graphics and Images:
  • Choose vector graphics (e.g., .eps or .pdf) over bitmap (.bmp, .png, or .jpg) images because they are electronically efficient and will not conflict with conversions to PDF.
  • All images should be checked by printing to hardcopy if the conference will be producing a book, especially when color images in your paper will be translated to black and white in print.
  • Resolution should be between 150 and 300 dpi or less. Resolutions greater than 300 will cause down sampling; images below 300 will not render well in print.
  • Labels within graphics should have a type point size of 4 or higher.
