Camera Ready Instructions

Final Paper Submission to the PWSN 2011 Workshop

To ensure publication in the Workshop Proceedings and IEEE Xplore, an accepted workshop paper must have at least one FULL workshop registration.

Authors with multiple accepted papers have to pay a FULL registration fee per accepted paper (conference or workshop). Accepted and registered papers will be published in the Workshop Proceedings and in IEEE Xplore.

Final manuscript submissions must be Xplore compatible and can be validated through IEEE PDFeXpress. Full instructions for submitting your paper are included below.

Final submissions must be completed by May 27th, 2011 (midnight EST).

Preparing Your Submission

1. Prepare the Final Manuscript: After carefully amending your manuscript according to the reviewers' recommendations, please print out your paper and proofread it. Final manuscripts must be submitted in standard IEEE two-column format and must be IEEE Xplore compliant. The sample manuscript (pdf, doc, and Latex) provided in Author Tools contains detailed requirements and can be used as a visual guide.

More information on IEEE's electronic submission requirement is available in PDF Specification for IEEE Xplore. Final manuscripts may be up to eight (8) pages in length for the main conference, six (6) pages for the workshops. Overlength submissions will be allowed at 50 EUR per extra page, for up to two (2) extra pages.

2. Create an Xplore-compliant PDF file: The final manuscript must be submitted as an IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF file. To create one using your source files (e.g. Word, Latex) or verify that your generated PDF archive is Xplore-compliant, DCOSS 2011 authors may use IEEE PDFeXpress. The Conference ID is dcoss11x and the instructions on how to use PDFeXpress are here. The most common issues encountered for Xplore compliance are summarized below:
  • Paper size: The paper must use either the US Letter or A4 IEEE template.
  • Fonts: All fonts must be embedded in the document.
  • Page Numbers: Page numbers must not be present. It is CRITICAL that your submitted document does not include page numbers, unlike the document submitted for review.

Please note that paper title may be modified from the submitted version. In such case, please inform the Publication Chair as soon as possible. Author names must not be added or removed in the final camera-ready version and must be identical to the reviewed version.

You may contact the Publication Chair (Rafael Falcon) or Workshop Chair (Sotiris Nikoletseas) for further assistance.

3.Register: Registration information is available here. Please note that each accepted conference paper must be accompanied by a FULL conference or workshop registration. Accepted papers are expected to be presented at the PWSN workshop. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the workshop (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

4. Submit the Final Manuscript: Submit your camera-ready version electronically to the Publication Chair Rafael Falcon and the Workshop co-Chair Vasos Vassiliou. Please make sure it is Xplore-compliant. You will receive an email containing a link to the IEEE electronic copyright submission system (eCF), please fill the copyright form online and keep the notification email you will be sent from IEEE as proof of your copyright submission.

Camera-ready submission deadlines for the workshops will be May 27, 2011 and papers will appear in IEEE Xplore and also in the Conference Proceedings.-->

Visa Instructions and Assistance

Visa arrangements for entry into Spain (if needed) are the responsibility of authors and other conference participants. If you are the author of an accepted paper and need a VISA letter, it can be created from EDAS. On the paper information page, there will be a letter shaped icon (visa letter). A PDF of the visa letter will be generated upon clicking on the icon. For non-authors who would like to attend the conference, please contact the General Chairs Mischa Dohler and Ivan Stojmenovic to issue a visa letter after submitting proof that you have paid the FULL registration fees.
