The appropriate copyright clearance code notice is to appear on the bottom of the first page of each paper according to the guidelines set forth in the Cataloging/Copyright Instructions for an IEEE Conference Proceeding.

After creating your camera-ready PDF file

The final camera-ready PDF file needs to be validated for IEEE Xplore compliance using IEEE PDF eXpress service.

 

Creating your PDF eXpress Account

Log in to the IEEE PDF eXpress site: http://www.pdf-express.org

First-time users should do the following:

  1. Select the New Users - Click Here link.
  2. Enter the following:
  • TBD for the Conference ID
  • your email address
  • a password
  1. Continue to enter information as prompted.

An online confirmation will be displayed and an email confirmation will be sent verifying

your account setup.

Previous users of PDF eXpress need to follow the above steps, but should enter the same password that was used for previous conferences. Verify that your contact information is valid.

 

You will then be able to upload your PDF (or source) file to the validation system, which will email you a validation confirmation. Following this process, please upload your validated camera-ready paper to the Conference Management Service (https://cmt3.research.microsoft.com/IPTA2022), where you will also be able to submit the electronic copyright form.

 

IMPORTANT: Any changes made to a PDF after IEEE PDF eXpress conversion or PDF

Checking, including the copyright notice, may invalidate Xplore compatibility. Each PDF will be checked to verify that the creation date matches the last modified date. If the dates don't match, the PDF cannot be accepted because the modification may have jeopardized Xplore compatibility.
