IEEE PDF eXpress converts the following file types to PDF:

  • Microsoft Word
  • Rich Text Format
  • Freelance
  • (La)TeX (DVI and all support files required)*
  • PageMaker
  • FrameMaker
  • QuarkXpress*
  • Lotus Word Pro
  • Corel WordPerfect

*For documents created in formats that do not embed source files, include all support files with the final manuscript in a folder. Put this folder in a compressed archive for submission. If it is possible to embed images in the source document, you should do so to avoid potential issues, such as missing graphics.

IMPORTANT: A DVI (DeVice Independent file) is required for (La)TeX conversions, in addition to all associated image files. Make sure that your TeX system can output a DVI, otherwise it cannot be converted.  Be sure also to check that your images are properly referenced, and that DVI can handle the image file types used (DVI does not handle some newer image types, such as *.png).

Step 2: IEEE Electronic Copyright Submission (On or before December 30th, 2017)

If a paper has been selected for publication in ICACCT the authors of the paper have to submit a Copyright Form, necessary for the inclusion of the paper in the proceedings of the conference, published by IEEE. From 2013, the IEEE uses the IEEE Electronic Copyright Service (eCF). In the following, you can find all the necessary information on how to properly submit a copyright form. Please note that all clearances for publication must be obtained by the authors. By filling in the form, you are stating that the material in your paper is original and you have not previously released copyright for this paper and/or its content to another party. The paper cannot be published in the proceedings if the form is not properly completed.

Please fill in the required information in the form given below and click the “Copyright Submission” button. You will be redirected to the IEEE Copyright submission site and a wizard will guide you through the process. A traditional copyright form with signature is not requested as it is replaced with the web form. 

IMPORTANT NOTES: 

1) If the IEEE Copyright submission site returns the error “IEEE Electronic Copyright Form, Non-authorized Submission Site”, it means that you are behind a firewall or you are using a proxy server. In that case, the process will not work. Temporarily changing the firewall settings on your computer (allow communication for your web browser) may help.

2) Make sure that the address bar of the web browser shows:  ********* If this is not the case, the procedure will not succeed.
