## Part I: General Information

#### Procedure

The IEEEI 2010 camera-ready paper submission process is being conducted as follows:

• The camera-ready paper is limited to 5 pages (including all text, figures, and references).

·         Papers must be submitted by the deadline date.

·         Accepted papers MUST be presented at the conference by one of the authors. The presenter MUST register for the conference, and MUST register before the deadline given for author registration. Failure to register before the deadline will result in automatic withdrawal of your paper from the conference proceedings and program. A single registration may cover up to two (2) papers.

#### Correspondence

Additional questions regarding submission of papers should be directed to the following address:

Telephone: 03 6407092

## Part II: Preparation of the Camera-Ready Paper

#### Document Formatting

Use the following guidelines when preparing your document:

LENGTH: You are allowed a total of 5 pages for your document. This is the maximum number of pages that will be accepted, including all figures, tables, and references. Any documents that exceed the 5 page limit will be rejected.

LANGUAGE: All papers must be in English.

MARGINS:

• All text and figures must be contained in a 178 mm x 229 mm (7 inch x 9 inch) image area.
• Text should appear in two columns, each 86 mm (3.39 inch) wide with 6 mm (0.24 inch) space between columns.
• On the first page, the top 50 mm (2") of both columns is reserved for the title, author(s), and affiliation(s). These items should be centered across both columns, starting at 35 mm (1.375 inches) from the top of the page.
• The paper abstract should appear at the top of the left-hand column of text, about 12 mm (0.5") below the title area and no more than 80 mm (3.125") in length. Leave 12 mm (0.5") of space between the end of the abstract and the beginning of the main text.

TYPE:

Face: To achieve the best viewing experience for the review process and conference proceedings, we strongly encourage authors to use Times-Roman or Computer Modern fonts. If a font face is used that is not recognized by the submission system, your proposal will not be reproduced correctly.

Size: Use a font size that is no smaller than 9 points throughout the paper, including figure captions. In 9-point type font, capital letters are 2 mm high. For 9-point type font, there should be no more than 3.2 lines/cm (8 lines/inch) vertically. This is a minimum spacing; 2.75 lines/cm (7 lines/inch) will make the proposal much more readable. Larger type sizes require correspondingly larger vertical spacing.

TITLE: The Paper Title Must Appear in Boldface Letters and Each Word Should be Capitalized. Do not use LaTeX math notation ($x_y$) in the title; the title must be representable in the Unicode character set. Also try to avoid uncommon acronyms in the title.

AUTHOR LIST: The authors' name(s) and affiliation(s) appear below the title in capital and lower case letters. Proposals with multiple authors and affiliations may require two or more lines for this information. The order of the authors on the document should exactly match in number and order the authors typed into the online submission form.

ABSTRACT: Each paper should contain an abstract of 100 to 150 words that appears at the beginning of the document.

BODY: Major headings appear in boldface CAPITAL letters, centered in the column. Subheadings appear in capital and lower case, either underlined or in boldface. They start at the left margin of the column on a separate line. Sub-subheadings are discouraged, but if they must be used, they should appear in capital and lower case, and start at the left margin on a separate line. They may be underlined or in italics.

REFERENCES: List and number all references at the end of the document. The references can be numbered in alphabetical order or in order of appearance in the paper. When referring to them in the text, type the corresponding reference number in square brackets as shown at the end of this sentence [1]. The end of the document should include a list of references containing information similar to the following example:

[1] D. E. Ingalls, "Image Processing for Experts," IEEE Trans. ASSP, vol. ASSP-36, pp. 1932-1948, 1988.

ILLUSTRATIONS & COLOR: Illustrations must appear within the designated margins. They may span the two columns. If possible, position illustrations at the top of columns, rather than in the middle or at the bottom. Caption and number every illustration. The CD-ROM and IEEE Xplore proceedings will retain the colors in your document.

PAGE NUMBERS: Do not put page numbers on your document. Appropriate page numbers will be added to accepted papers when the conference proceedings are assembled.

#### Templates

The following style files and templates are available for users of LaTeX and Microsoft Word:

We recommend that you use the Word file or LaTeX files to produce your document, since they have been set up to meet the formatting guidelines listed above. The LaTeX environment files specify suitable margins, page layout, text, and a bibliography style.

In particular, with LaTeX, there are cases where the top-margin of the resulting Postscript or PDF file does not meet the specified parameters. In this case, you may need to add a \topmargin=0mm command just after the \begin{document} command in your .tex file. The spacing of the top margin is not critical, as the page contents will be adjusted on the proceedings. The critical dimensions are the actual width and height of the page content.

## Part III: Submission

#### File Format

Papers must be submitted in Adobe's Portable Document Format (PDF) format.

PDF files:

• must not have Adobe Document Protection or Document Security enabled,
• must have 'A4' sized pages,
• must be in first-page-first order, and
• must have ALL FONTS embedded and subset.

ALL FONTS MUST be embedded in the PDF. There is no guarantee that the viewers of the paper (those who view the proceedings CD-ROM after publication) have the same fonts used in the document. If fonts are not embedded in the submission, you will be contacted and asked to submit a file that has all fonts embedded. Please refer to your PDF file generation utility's user guide to find out how to embed all fonts.

#### Information for LaTeX users

Generating a PostScript file is straightforward for all LaTeX packages we are aware of. When preparing the proposal under LaTeX, it is preferable to use scalable fonts such as Type I, Computer Modern. However, quite good results can be obtained with the fonts defined in the style file recommended above (spconf.sty).

PDF files with Postscript Type 3 fonts are highly discouraged. PDF and PostScript files utilizing Type 3 fonts are typically produced by the LaTeX system and are lower-resolution bitmapped versions of the letters and figures. It is possible to perform a few simple changes to the configuration or command-line to produce files that use PostScript Type 1 fonts, which are a vector representation of the letters and figures. An excellent set of instructions is found at:

For most installations of LaTeX, you can cause dvips to output Type 1 fonts instead of Type 3 fonts by including -Ppdf option to dvips. The resulting Postscript file will reference the Type 1 Computer Modern fonts, rather than embedding the bitmapped Type 3 versions, which cause problems with printers.

You may also need to tell dvips to force letter sized paper with the option: -t letter.

Some LaTeX installations also include pdflatex, which produces acceptable PDF files as well.

#### File Name

The filename of the document file should be the first author's last name, followed by the appropriate extension (.pdf). For example, if the first author's name is Johan Smith, you would submit your file as "smith.pdf".

#### Electronic Paper Submission

To submit your document and author information, go to the 'EasyChair' link ( http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=ieeei2010 ), click "My Submissions", select the paper you want to submit, and then select: "Submit a New Version" at the upper right corner of the screen.

Let us know if you prefer oral presentation or poster presentation by updating the submission information.

Also make sure that all the information in Easychair is up to date:

·          Paper title

·          Authors

·          Affiliation

·          Abstract

ALL authors must be entered in the online form, and must appear in the online form in the same order in which the authors appear on the PDF.
