The IEEE is dedicated to the worldwide distribution of conference papers to engineering professionals. This requires that all papers submitted for publication must meet a minimum standard for both print and electronic publishing.

  • Authors will have access to IEEE PDF eXpress™ to assist them in preparing suitable PDF files. Click the logo below for more information.
