Do not forget: Authors of accepted papers should register before 10-04-2006; otherwise papers will not be included in the proceedings. For each accepted paper, at least one author must register at a full registration rate.

Step1: Prepare Final Manuscript

Please find the reviewers' comments, if any, attached in the email sent to you earlier. Please pay attention to their comments and incorporate them in the final version of your paper.

To guarantee good quality proceedings contents, your paper must comply with the HPSR 2006 paper specifications. In particular, this means:

  • A4 format (8.27" x 11.69")
  • Two-columns IEEE Transactions style
  • Paper length should be 4-6 pages (Accepted papers that are longer than 6 pages will be charged with an over-length fee of 85 EUR per page for the 7th and 8th pages. No paper may exceed a maximum of 2 over-length pages.)
  • PDF format only is accepted
  • Do NOT page number your manuscript
  • Do NOT apply security settings to your PDF file

You can view here the suggested style for the title and authors header (one column for each different affiliation); if preferred, this alternative style can be used.

LaTeX Template:

Mac users can use either of the packages. However, Mac (especially OzTeX) users should be aware that they should not use text files Windows style line feeds. Therefore, if using IEEEtran.zip, OzTeX users will have to convert the line feeds of any Windows style ASCII files (.txt, .sty, .tex, .bib, .bst, etc.) to Mac format before use or else the LaTeX parser will become confused and generate error messages. Most Mac text editors and word processors can easily perform this conversion. OzTeX will work with the UNIX releases (IEEEtran.tar.gz) without need of modification.

Word Template:

Download the TRANS-JOUR.DOC author's template for Microsoft Word. This file contains a template for you to use in creating your paper. You may also download the TRANS-JOUR.PDF file if you just want the instructions and not the template.

Step2: Generate PDF Format Paper

IEEE is very strict about the requirements for converting application files or PostScript files to full-text PDF for inclusion in IEEE Xplore.

The new IEEE Xplore« Requirements for PDF will be enforced as of 2005. All conference articles submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore must be in Xplore-compatible PDF format. IEEE offers PDF eXpress as a free service to IEEE conference authors, allowing them to make Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs authors have made themselves for Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).

Method 1: Generate the PDF paper using Adobe Acrobat

Please follow the detailed instructions in IEEE PDF File Preparation Guide for IEEE Xplore.
PDF settings file that allows authors to automatically set Adobe Distiller to the IEEE PDF requirements can be download from here
Please check the obtained PDF file by using the PDF eXpress Check function.

Method 2: Generate the PDF paper using PDF eXpress

PDF eXpress is a tool for IEEE authors to obtain Xplore-compatible files, by using either the PDF Check or Source File Conversion functions

More information about IEEE PDF eXpress can be found here
