Final Manuscripts

Final manuscripts must be uploaded through the EDAS submission webpage for ISIT 2016. To this end, login to EDAS, select your paper in the “My papers” tab, and click on the upload icon next to the “Final manuscript” field. An IEEE copyright form must be provided for each accepted paper. Authors are to use EDAS electronic signing for the copyright form, readily available in conjunction with the final manuscript upload.

Remember NOT to include a sentence at the beginning of the abstract saying that the paper is to be considered for an IEEE Jack Keil Wolf ISIT Student Paper Award. If you had this sentence in the initial submission, please remove it both in the PDF of your final paper and also in the abstract stored in EDAS. Please make also sure that the abstract stored in EDAS coincides with the abstract of the final manuscript, as this information will be used to produce the abstract and product booklet.

The deadline for uploading final manuscripts is May 8. This deadline will not be extended.

Format Guidelines

Authors are encouraged to use LaTex to format their final manuscripts, using the standard IEEE conference specifications:

Manuscripts should be in A4 paper format, use font size no smaller than 10 points, and have reasonable margins on all 4 sides of the text. The top and bottom margins should be at least 0.5 inches to leave room for page numbers.

To produce A4-sized manuscripts in LaTex, please add the class option “a4paper” to the preamble, i.e., change the preamble to \documentclass[conference,a4paper]{IEEEtran}

The paper is limited to 5 pages in standard IEEE conference format. Manuscripts longer than that cannot be uploaded to EDAS.

Please make sure that the final manuscript has the following characteristics, so that it is compatible with IEEE Xplore:

  • A4 paper format.
  • PDF 1.4 (Acrobat 5) or later.
  • All fonts are embedded or subset.
  • Does not contain any bookmarks or links.
  • Have no content written in the margins. In particular, no header, footer, or page numbers.

Remember to remove the sentence at the beginning of the abstract saying that the paper is to be considered for an IEEE Jack Keil Wolf ISIT Student Paper Award. If you had this sentence in the initial submission, please remove it both in the PDF of your final paper and also in the abstract stored in EDAS. Please make also sure that the abstract stored in EDAS coincides with the abstract of the final manuscript, as this information will be used to produce the abstract and product booklet.

PDF eXpress

A PDF eXpress site has been been created, where authors can either

  • convert their papers from their source application formats to Xplore-compatible PDFs, or
  • check existing PDFs to determine if they are Xplore-compatible.

PDF eXpress is free of charge, but first-time users have to open an account on the PDF eXpress site with their email address.
The conference ID is 35645X.
