Camera Ready Submission Guidelines
Please check the instructions below and submit your camera-ready paper by September 30, 2022, 11:59 pm AoE.
Please carefully address the comments raised by the reviews and incorporate the recommended changes into the camera-ready version of your paper. Also check that the paper metadata (title, authors, abstract, etc) in EDAS matches exactly the information in your paper.
Follow the steps to upload your camera-ready paper;
Note that a camera-ready PDF must be certified by IEEE PDF eXpress before uploading to EDAS. The file checking by IEEE PDF eXpress may take multiple hours. Please start the process as early as possible to get your certified PDF ready by the submission deadline.
Please follow these steps to submit your camera-ready paper:
- Check the titles, author list, abstract, and other metadata
- Register for the conference. You can do this from the registration tab on this website. Please forward your registration confirmation to the publication chair: firstname.lastname@example.org
- Use EDAS to fill out the electronic copyright form for publication of your paper in IEEE Xplore. The copyright form can be added to your paper by logging in to EDAS, opening the paper details page, and selecting the plus symbol next to “Copyright form” (do not use the manual copyright form file upload unless authorised by the publication chair).
- Use IEEE PDF eXpress – reachable at https://ieee-pdf-express.org/ – (use conference ID: 55617X) to certify your camera-ready paper. Check for any errors and download the PDF eXpress signed version of your paper.
- Upload your IEEE PDF eXpress signed version of the camera-ready paper using EDAS. The upload link can be found next to “Final manuscript” on the paper details page in EDAS. Make sure there are no errors.
- Papers must respect the limit in number of pages of the corresponding track (full papers, short (including poster and demo papers), in IEEE two-column format (10pt), including references and figures.
If you need any assistance regarding paper formatting, please contact our Publication Chair.

Poster setup and presentation guidelines
- All poster materials should be provided by the Author(s).
- Adhesive Putty will be provided at the poster desk to attach poster materials to the wall.
- Posters may be printed on **A0 or A1 paper** or in a similar format, in portrait or landscape layout.
- Please try your material layout before you arrive and make sure it fits in the assigned space.
- The title of the poster session should be displayed in large font, 36 – 60 point, to help the audience find your paper.
Your main point or conclusion should be in large font if it is not covered in the title.
**A font below 18 points is difficult for the audience to read.** Try not to include any smaller print on your presentation.
Avoid large text sections in all capitals; it can be challenging to read. Use CAPITALS and/or bold to emphasize your points.
Display the highlights of your presentation in larger font, 24 – 40. **Use color to emphasize the crucial points.**
Pictures, charts, and graphs are very effective when kept simple. Too much detail will obscure the main points. Use color!
- Information flow is most effective from left to right and top to bottom.
- Your posted materials should be as self-explanatory as possible. Attract the audience’s attention and then answer detailed questions.
Consider that the viewers will be two to three meters away from your material and adjust the print font, charts, graphs, and figures accordingly. The audience will not have the time or the space to read pages of text.
- The audience at poster sessions moves! They may want to visit several posters during the session. If you plan to give a presentation, it will probably have to be repeated several times as the audience changes. **Keep your speech short, hit the high points, and invite questions.**
Some attendees may be very interested in your topic and will want to monopolize your session time with questions, and this may turn away other attendees that are also interested. Recognize this as a factor and **be prepared to acknowledge all visitors.**
If you want to interact with certain audience members later, have cards with your contact information available.
Demos setup and presentation guidelines
- All demo materials should be provided by the Author(s).
- Individual demonstration spaces will be provided to the Author(s). Please contact the Posters and Demonstration chairs if you think you have special needs (e.g., extra space).
- Prepare static material to advertise your demonstration for people to identify quickly what this is about: title, authors, keywords, high-level diagram…
- Please try to prepare a demonstration that does not need an Internet connection; in the eventuality, it becomes unavailable or overloaded.
- Your demonstration should be as visual and demonstrative as possible: moving and interactive graphs and dashboards, live interaction with the demonstrated work… Avoid rolling walls of terminal output.
Demonstrations often go wrong: it is always a good idea to prepare videos of the scenario you plan to play at the session.
- The audience at demonstration sessions moves! They may want to visit several demos during the session. If you plan to play a demo scenario, it will probably have to be repeated several times as the audience changes. **Keep your speech short, hit the high points, and invite questions.**
Most of the advice given above for posters also fits the demonstration presentation.
