IEEE PDF eXpress

EPE-PEMC 2008 has registered for use of a IEEE tool: IEEE PDF eXpress

IEEE PDF eXpress All conference articles submitted for inclusion in IEEE Xplore must adhere to the IEEE Xplore PDF specification for compatibility. IEEE PDF eXpress is a free service to IEEE conferences, allowing their authors to make IEEE Xplore-compatible PDFs (Conversion function) or to check PDFs that authors have made themselves for IEEE Xplore compatibility (PDF Check function).

Dates for EPE-PEMC 2008 Conference:
Site opens: 1 April 2008
Site closes: 25 June 2008


IEEE PDF eXpress converts the following file types to PDF:

* For documents created in formats that do not embed source files, include all support files with the final manuscript in a folder. Put this folder 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.

IMPORTANT: A DVI (DeVice Independent file) is required for (La)TeX conversions, in addition to all associated image files. Make sure that your TeX system can output a DVI, otherwise it cannot be converted. Be sure also to check that your images are properly referenced, and that DVI can handle the image file types used (DVI does not handle some newer image types, such as *.png).
