IEEE Copyright Form

All Papers MUST be accompanied by a signed IEEE Copyright form to be considered. eCF submission info will be provided

Adobe Distiller Settings for IEEE Xplore Compliance:

It is REQUIRED for NAECON that all PDF submissions be IEEE Xplore compliant. Download Specifications here in Adobe PDF.

NOTE: If your file does not meet Xplore compliance, it will NOT be published and will be removed from the TBD Proceedings CDROM and the IEEE Xplore system.

To help you meet these new requirements, you must FIRST check to ensure that your PDF file is compliant by using the IEEE PDF eXpress system BEFORE you submit your paper to the conference final submission web site.
1. Go to the IEEE PDF eXpress web site:
2. Click on the link “New Users – Click Here” and fill in your information.
3. Use this conference ID: pending
4. Use PDF eXpress to check or create your PDF file
5. Your completed IEEE copyright form must be received with your submission (Coming soon).
6. Once you have a GOOD PDF file, submit here (coming soon)

IMPORTANT: Please keep in mind that checking your PDF file for compliance using these instructions and submitting your final paper for publication are TWO separate procedures and BOTH must be accomplished.
