Author Final Paper Preparation and Submission PDF Instructions

The IEEE is dedicated to the worldwide distribution of conference papers to engineering professionals. The IEEE digital libraries are the primary delivery method, especially the IEEE Xplore digital library. This requires that all papers submitted for publication must meet a minimum standard for both print and electronic publishing.

We now offer conferences free access to PDF eXpress™, the IEEE’s online file conversion/PDF validation tool, to assist authors in preparing suitable electronic files of their final papers. PDF eXpress™ helps authors convert their papers into IEEE Xplore-compatible PDF files (conversion function) or to check their own PDF files for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF validation function).

PDF eXpress™ is not a file submission system and does not capture files. An author’s file simply passes through the system returning a PDF file or an error report.

Your final papers MUST be formatted to IEEE PPower and Energy Society Proceedings Manuscript Formatting Guidelines. It is highly recommended that you proofread and check the layout of your paper BEFORE submitting it to PDF eXpress.

PDF eXpress PDF eXpress Online File Conversion/PDF Validation Tool

If you would like to create your own PDF file, please change the setting on your PDF distiller to insure your paper meets IEEE PDF specifications. Basic PDF distiller settings MUST be changed to:

Optimized,
Acrobat 5.0 compatibility,
ALL graphics at least 300 dpi resolution (higher if preferred),
ALL fonts MUST be embedded and subset,
Postscript settings DO NOT override distiller settings,
-Page size is 612.0 x 792.0 points (8.5″ x 11″).

IMPORTANT: Authors must check their final PDF files before submission to verify that all fonts have been properly embedded and subset. Some font manufacturers now flag their fonts to not embed. These fonts must be avoided.

For documents created in formats that do not embed source files, include all support files with the final manuscript in a compressed archive for submission. If it is possible to embed images in the source document, you should do so to avoid potential issues, such as missing graphics.
