  • Once you are successfully registered, you follow the steps below to generate PDF and upload through EDAS.

Please note that without full author registration and presentation at the conference, paper will not be published in IEEE Xplore.

There are two steps to complete the camera-ready upload process for IEEE ANTS 2016.

STEP TWO: UPLOAD THE CAMERA-READY PAPER AND IEEE COPYRIGHT FORM
Please leave the registration code blank, as validation of payment is done by third party.

Once you have the PDF-Express generated camera-ready paper, login to the EDAS system and select your ANTS paper. From there on, follow the instructions below to submit the camera-ready submission:
a. Uploading final manuscripts for accepted papers is essentially the same as uploading your review manuscript. Do NOT register a new paper!
b. Before you upload your paper, make sure that the paper title and the ordered list of authors in the PDF is identical to the information you have entered in EDAS. Also, make sure you specify on EDAS who will be presenting the paper at the conference.
Note: You cannot add or remove authors after the paper has been accepted.
c. In EDAS, go to “My papers” and click on the link under “Upload paper” (refer the figure below).
d. During upload, EDAS checks whether your paper meets the conference formatting requirements. In particular, it checks that all fonts are embedded.

A link to the copyright page can also be found on each paper page.

Note: IEEE ANTS requires that you register for the conference at the full author registration rate before you submit your final manuscript. Please leave the Registration code blank on EDAS as the validation is done via a third-party tool.

The final deadline for submitting camera-ready papers is September 15, 2016 11:59PM IST.


INITIAL SUBMISSION GUIDELINES:

TECHNICAL PAPERS: Authors must submit their papers using EDAS  ( https://edas.info/N22174 )  on or before 17 June 2016. All papers will be reviewed for technical content and scope by a technical program committee. All accepted and presented papers would be digitally archived through IEEE Xplore.

The page limits are SIX pages for regular papers and THREE pages for short papers. Papers should be in PDF format, two columns, font size 10 or greater and compliant with other IEEE ANTS manuscript guidelines. Standard IEEE conference templates for LaTeX and Microsoft Word formats can be used to write technical papers and are found at: http://www.ieee.org/conferences_events/conferences/publishing/templates.html.

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not currently under review for any other publication. Authors of accepted papers must sign an IEEE copyright release form and also present their paper at the conference to be included in IEEE Xplore.

IEEE and IEEE Communications Society Policies:

IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference.

Papers are reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (double submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE Communications society will take action against any author who engages in either practice. Follow these links to learn more: IEEE Policy on Plagiarism and IEEE Policy on Double Submission.

Submitted papers must be unpublished and not currently under review for any other publication. Authors of accepted papers will need to sign an IEEE copyright release form and present their paper at the conference. If you have any questions regarding the submission of manuscripts, please contact the Technical Program Co-Chairs or the Publications Chair.
