Final Submission

Sponsored by:

The steps required to finalize the upload process of papers are described in the following paragraphs:

I. Proceed with registration

As a first step, you must register for the conference.

DO NOT FORGET to finalize your registration: mandatory camera-ready paper & copyright form submission are expected!

PLEASE NOTE that any accepted paper included in the final program is expected to have at least one author attending and presenting the paper at the conference.

Authors of the accepted papers included in the final program who do not attend the Conference will be subscribed to a “No Show List”. The “No Show List” will also be made available to the following PRIME conference organizers, who can reject submissions from these authors in the following years, based on their past negative impact on the conference.

II. Proceed with camera-ready paper and copyright form submission

II.a) Prepare your camera-ready paper

    While preparing the final version of your paper, please, make sure to read the reviews of your paper and take into account the reviewers' recommendations for revising it. Each accepted manuscript should not exceed four (4) IEEE style pages.

II.b) Instructions to Use PDF eXpress Plus:

  1. Go to the IEEE PDF eXpress Plus login page and register your paper. Conference ID: 40552XP.
  2. If you are a new user click on “New Users – Click here” and fill in your information. You’ll need the conference ID 40552XP to apply for the account.
  3. Follow on-site instruction for using IEEE PDF eXpress Plus. Once your PDF has been approved with clean compliance report, PDF eXpress PLUS allows each author to deposit his or her validated PDF on the site for collection by the conference's publications or technical program chair.
  4. After using the IEEE PDF eXpress system for file compliance, MAKE SURE to return to the PRIME 2017 final submission web site (EasyChair) and upload your compliant final submission.

II.c) Copyright Form

An IEEE Copyright Form must be submitted for each paper. Please download, sign, and scan the signed copyright form to a PDF format file.

For the "IEEE PUBLICATION TITLE (Journal, Magazine, Conference, Book)" item on the copyright form, please fill exactly:
"2017 13th Conference on Ph.D. Research in Microelectronics and Electronics (PRIME)".
This is a requirement from IEEE.

For the "Paper #", please include the number of reference of the EasyChair submission.

PLEASE NOTE that your paper will not be published in IEEE Xplore without a correct copyright form.

Please send the signed copyright form to: using the following text in the subject line
IEEE Copyright Form – PRIME paper code XXXXX’.
Do not forget to replace XXXXX with the paper code.

II.d) Measures against plagiarism

A paper detected with plagiarism will be excluded from the conference proceedings and IEEE Xplore.
In addition, the authors' names could go to the black list of IEEE for detected papers with plagiarism.

It is the responsibility of the author(s) to ensure that all conditions for paper publishing are met.
