Camera-ready versions of accepted papers must be
in PDF format to meet IEEE PDF specifications.
The IEEE online author kits now include instructions for authors to access
and use the IEEE PDF eXpress online file conversion/PDF validation
system. PDF eXpress helps authors convert their papers into IEEE
Xplore-compatible PDF files (conversion function) or to check their
own PDF files for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF validation function).
There is no additional charge to use the PDF eXpress system for
conferences publishing through CPS.
At a minimum, basic PDF distiller settings MUST be changed so PDF
files are: optimized, set to Acrobat 4.0 compatibility, all graphics
are set to at least 300 dpi resolution, ALL fonts are embeddable,
POSTSCRIPT fonts, ALL fonts must be embedded and subset, postscript
settings SHOULD NOT override distiller settings and page size is
612.0 x 792.0 points (8.5" x 11"). Authors should check their final
PDF files before submission to verify that all fonts have been
properly embedded and subset. Some font manufacturers now flag their
fonts to not embed. These fonts should be avoided.
