Authors of accepted papers must follow the steps described below for inclusion of the paper in the conference proceedings. Note that the conference proceedings will be published in the IFIP Open Digital Library, with open access, and submitted to IEEE Xplore®.


I – Revise your Paper

Revise your paper following carefully reviewers’ comments and do a thorough proofread to ensure that no further revision will be required. Final versions must not exceed 9 pages in IEEE 2-column style, including references and annexes (if any). If the paper is typeset in LaTeX, please use an unmodified version of the LaTeX template IEEEtran.cls version 1.8(b), and use the preamble:

\documentclass[10pt, conference, letterpaper]{IEEEtran}

Do not use additional LaTeX commands or packages to override and change the default typesetting choices in the template, including line spacing, font sizes, margins, space between the columns, and font types. This implies that the manuscript must use 10 point Times font, two-column formatting, as well as all default margins and line spacing requirements as dictated by the original version of IEEEtran.cls version 1.8(b). DO NOT include page numbers.

See for IEEE templates and formatting requirements.
