Camera ready deadline has been extended to Aug. 7, 2017 at 11:59pm Pacific Time.
Notice: the copyright submission form on CMT is not currently active, but we anticipate it going live in the next few days.
Please read these instructions carefully and follow them exactly to minimize problems with production of the conference proceedings.
This deadline will not be extended further. Papers that arrive after the deadline may not appear on the conference USB drive, and may not be placed in IEEE Xplore.
Note: Conference attendees will receive a access to a Web proceedings for download of a HTML site containing all the papers (and supplementary material) for the main conference as well as the associated workshops. The conference web proceedings drive will not be available for purchase after the meeting. They are published exclusively for meeting attendees. All IJCB papers that are submitted on time, which are compliant with IEEE Xplore, and for which the IEEE copyright has been completed will be the tbe Web proceedings. Papers that are not presented may be removed before the proceedings are put in IEEE Xplore shortly after the meeting. Only those papers that are placed in IEEE Xplore can be considered archival.
There are four steps to completing your final IJCB 2017 paper submission:
IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not include page numbers in your camera-ready paper.
There is a strict size limit of 10 MB (10,485,760 bytes) for PDF files in the conference proceedings. If your paper is larger than this, you are probably using very large images in your figures. As a rule, your images will look fine at 600 pixels per inch and you should down-sample the images used in your figures accordingly. Smaller PDF files are also validated more quickly by PDF eXpress.
The page limit for all papers is 8 pages, not including references and acknowledgments. To clarify, the main body of the paper, including figures, tables, equations, etc., must be limited to no more than 8 pages. Additional pages may only contain an acknowledgments section or cited references. Note that papers longer than six pages in the published proceedings will incur a page charge, up to two extra pages (bibliography pages will not incur an extra charge). However, papers that are longer than 8 pages (not including references and acknowledgments), will not be processed and will not appear on the conference USB drive or on IEEE Xplore.
Papers that do not meet these guidelines will not be placed in Xplore. This is IEEE policy.
Note: PDF eXpress does not collect the papers. After validating your paper, you must still upload it to the camera-ready paper collection website (CMT) for production, as described in Step 4.
There are two ways to use IEEE PDF eXpress. If you generate your own PDF file, PDF eXpress can validate it. If you are using any of the following document formatting systems, PDF eXpress can generate an Xplore-compliant document from the following source files: MS-Word, WordPerfect, RTF (rich text format), Freelance, LaTeX, PageMaker, FrameMaker, Word Pro, or Quark. If you used LaTeX, PageMaker, or Quark to prepare your paper, there are a few extra steps required to supply the images to IEEE.
A primary source of failure in validating a PDF file is the use of non-embeddable fonts in figures. Make sure that your paper uses embeddable fonts for the main text of the paper as well as the figures, figure captions, references, footnotes, etc. Another source of failure is the line in the LaTeX source file that includes the hyperref package. If you are having difficulty, you may want to comment out this line. If you have further trouble with IEEE PDF eXpress, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The deadline for all IJCB 2017 papers is Aug. 7th, 2017 at 11:59pm Pacific Time. This deadline will not be extended. Papers that arrive after the deadline may not appear on the conference web proceedings, and may not be placed in IEEE Xplore.
NOTE: Please ensure that the abstract is updated with your most recent version and that it is submitted as plain text without any LaTex (or other form of) markup.
After completing each section of the camera-ready submission, advance to the next section by pressing the "Next" link in the bottom-left of the page or by clicking directly on the appropriate page link on the left.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please be aware that once you submit your IEEE Electronic Copyright form, you will not be able to go back and make changes. IEEE does not have any mechanism to "redo"" an electronic copyright form and you will not be able to complete more than one form per paper. As such, please be sure that the title, author list, etc. are correct and final on the IEEE Electronic Copyright Form prior to completing and submitting the copyright form.
Papers without completed copyright forms will not appear on the conference proceedings disk and will not be enrolled in IEEE Xplore.
Final reminder: Papers will appear in the IJCB 2017 WEB proceedings and placed in IEEE Xplore only if all of these conditions are met:
