Authors Final Submission Guidelines
Warning on Plagiarism
Papers will be reviewed on the basis that they do not contain plagiarized material and have not been submitted to any other conference at the same time (multiple submission). These matters are taken very seriously and the IEEE will take action against any author who has engaged in either practice.
Authors are required to make sure that the PDF file and the EDAS registration page of a submitted paper have the same list of authors, title, and abstract (minor wording differences in the abstract are ok). Failure to comply with this rule may lead to the withdrawal of your paper from the review process. Please note that the authors list of an accepted paper CANNOT be changed in the final manuscript.
All submissions should be written in English with a maximum paper length of six (6) printed double-column pages (10-point font) including figures without incurring any page charges. One additional page is permitted with an overlength page charge of $100. Papers exceeding 7 pages will not be accepted on EDAS. Accepted papers to be published in the IEEE PIMRC 2021 Conference Proceedings and papers presented by an author at the conference will submitted to IEEE Xplore®.
Standard IEEE conference templates for LaTeX formats are found here.
You can also use the sample template for Microsoft Word from here.
Only PDF files generated by Acrobat 5 or later versions will be accepted for both the review processing and final publication steps. Camera-ready versions of accepted papers must be certified by PDF eXpress.
Camera-ready versions of accepted papers should not embed bookmarks, form fields, or URL links (cf. Note 1 below), neither contain page numbers, headers, footers, or PDF annotations.
Paper pages should be (please be aware of the format used in your final manuscript)
US Letter: left and right margins of at least 0.625 inch, top margin of at least 0.75 inch and bottom margin of at least 1 inch.
A4: left and right margins of at least 13 mm, top margin of at least 19 mm and bottom margin of at least 43 mm.
Note 1: Please make sure that you remove hyperlinks to all email addresses in the authors’ affiliations or to all webpage reference citations in the bibliography section.
Note 2: Complying with the PIMRC 2021 format constraints indicated above might not be sufficient to avoid PDF upload issues on EDAS. In case you face embedded fonts issues, please refer to the following IEEE Tutorial.
Note 3: For authors using the LaTeX template, a warning may show up once their papers are uploaded successfully. If the warning indicates that you are exceeding the right margin at the last page (i.e., where your references are most likely listed), you can ignore it! In fact, the IEEE template does not allow to break a reference, leading to an “underfull vbox” warning, but the final result will be much more like what the IEEE will publish.
Final Submission Guidelines
Before Creating a PDF
- Address all the critical reviewers’ feedback as well as possible.
- Proofread your source document thoroughly to confirm that it will require no revision.
- Copyright notice will be stamped to the bottom of the first page of the final submission by the organizers based on the copyright information collected in EDAS via the IEEE eCopyright web site. So, you are not expected to add it. Remove/inactivate the pre-filled copyright line from the paper template if it exists there.
