Camera Ready Version

This page contains information required for authors with accepted papers in order to prepare the camera ready version.

Please complete the three steps outlined here and described in detail below before the camera ready deadline on April 20.

  1. Add the appropriate copyright notice to your paper.
  2. Submit the final version to PDFExpress. Note that the EasyChair website is for review only and the actual camera-ready version must be submitted via PDFExpress.
  3. The first corresponding author will receive an email from IEEE with instructions to transfer the copyright to IEEE. Note that one author can sign the form on behalf of all co-authors.

Adding IEEE Copyright Notice to your Paper

The appropriate copyright clearance code notice is to appear at the bottom of the first page of each paper according to the guidelines set forth in the Cataloging/Copyright Instructions for an IEEE Conference Proceeding. The copyright notice should appear about 1 cm below the left column, and should be aligned to the left with the same left margin as the column.

The copyright notice to be added depends on the circumstances as follows:

For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is:

U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright

For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is:

978-1-6654-0627-7/22/$31.00 ©2022 Crown

For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is

978-1-6654-0627-7/22/$31.00 ©2022 European Union

For all other papers the copyright notice is:

978-1-6654-0627-7/22/$31.00 ©2022 IEEE

Tips for adding the IEEE copyright notice to your pdf:

You may copy and paste the piece of code below into your source code file in the preamble, i.e, between the "\documentclass" and "\begin{document}" commands in your TeX file. Please substitute the copyright string for the one suitable for your publication.

This email will provide the authors with a link to the online eCF wizard, as well as a unique login name and password to access their own copyright forms.
