Camera ready guidelines

SpeD 2019 adheres to the IEEE paper formatting guidelines. When preparing your camera ready submission, please follow strictly the IEEE guidelines. By failing to do so, we risk having your paper refused for publishing in the IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

To successfully create your camera ready paper, please follow the steps below:

  1. Use the latest IEEE templates available here: Manuscript Templates for Conference Proceedings;
  2. You need to include in your paper, at the bottom of the first page, the appropriate IEEE copyright notice. Select which of the following applies to your particular case (without quotes):
    • For papers in which all authors are employed by the US government, the copyright notice is:
      U.S. Government work not protected by U.S. copyright
    • For papers in which all authors are employed by a Crown government (UK, Canada, and Australia), the copyright notice is:
      978-1-7281-0984-8/19/$31.00 ©2019 Crown
    • For papers in which all authors are employed by the European Union, the copyright notice is:
      978-1-7281-0984-8/19/$31.00 ©2019 European Union
    • For all other papers the copyright notice is:
      978-1-7281-0984-8/19/$31.00 ©2019 IEEE
  3. Address the reviewers’ recommendations sent to you via the notification email;
  4. Proofread your paper thoroughly as no further revision will be possible after submitting the camera ready. The paper will appear in the proceedings as is;
  5. Build your PDF file and check the IEEE formatting using the IEEE PDF eXpress tool. A special section was created for SpeD 2017. This step ensures your PDF conversion (or checking) to an approved IEEE Xplore Digital Library format and is mandatory. Follow the steps:
    • you may access IEEE PDF eXpress here: http://www.pdf-express.org/;
    • login or create a new account using as Conference ID: 47036XP;
    • upload your PDF and follow the instructions. Correct any potential errors and resubmit the PDF until the validation is successful. A specific tag will be added to the PDF mentioning that is IEEE PDF eXPress validated.
    • Please note that any additional changes after IEEE PDF eXpress conversion or PDF checking, may invalidate the IEEE Xplore compatibility.
  6. Submit the IEEE PDF eXpress validated version of the camera ready paper through the online paper submission system (to be opened soon);
